RGS Boys Deliver for Old Bristolians

Hard Work Pays Off for the Badgers!

 
Sunday, 22 November saw the first ever win for our newest team, 'The Old Bristolians' Badgers'.  This junior team supported by a few 'wise heads' are enjoying their first year in the 'Badgers League' and after a tough start to the season played brilliantly on Sunday to secure all three points.

Matthew was like a rock in defence, foiling attack after attack! Our midfield powerhouse of Alfie, Harry and Jack played out of their skins, literally in the case of Alfie who was my man of the match, playing through a nasty injury and refusing to give up! Harry showed great determination and tracked his man mercilessly for 70 minutes, whilst Jack found his niche and ran the game from central midfield.

In a new role up front, Will made a strong debut at RW. Brendan bamboozled opposition defenders with his silky skills and Henry's pace and power had the goalkeeper cowering. Our winning goal came from a
great passing move ending when Henry 'shelled one' past the helpless defenders.

Many thanks to Dan, Chris and Brian, the seniors who braved the elements to play and the parents/carers who provided all the cheering a team could ask for!

A great result and I'm sure a sign of things to come.
