Beacon Hill sign up to Mental Health support programme

The issues of mental health in football and wider sport are now much more in the public domain, it is a talked about topic. In the past we might have shied away from addressing these issues yet recently we have been active participants of FA initiatives and were keen to offer more support for the Club members. Thanks to the work of Nikki Smith and Chris Pipe we are pleased to announce that Beacon Hill Rovers FC have become members of the “Mindful Employers Association” which will give us access to advice, guidance, training and a help –line. Further details on this important initiative will follow.


It was a tough weekend for both of our First Teams as last season double promotions start to test our performances not helped with illness taking a toll on the squads. Saturday saw the Men survive the rain deluge but couldn’t prevent a Corinthian deluge as the visitors to the Hill won 10-3. The rain might have stopped by the Sunday but the Women also had face up to a tough opposition in Lawford who beat Rovers 12-1. Lawford have recently dropped down to the Essex League from higher up the pyramid the Eastern Regions League involved too much travel. Their recent results suggest they may get smaller petrol bills but not too many competitive games of football.


On Saturday the Vets progressed through the County Cup with a hard fought 3-2 home win over Halstead Town whilst the younger ‘A’ team continued their development with a good performance in a 1-3 reverse at Ongar Town u21s. The weekend’s Youth Team games again produced some excellent performances. The 7s had a great three match Festival and the 8s and 9s put on good shows despite losing to Maldon & Tiptree and Heybridge respectfully. A hat-trick of wins were enjoyed by the 10s (7-2 against Springfield), 11s (6-0 at Brentwood) and the 15s (6-3 home win over Brentwood).
