Beacon Hill’s Spirit Shine’s Through
It was a weekend to remember for Rovers’ First Teams as both the Men’s and Women’s Teams put in great effort to gather League points. The Men travelled to high-flying Corinthians, put their recent poor run of results behind them, fought hard for each other to deservedly take home a point with an old school gritty 0-0 draw. On Sunday the Women’s Team hosted St Clare’s and flew out of the blocks to lead 2-0 after ten minutes. The visitors then grew back and turned the game around to lead 3-2 only for Hill to remember all their good play of earlier in the game, help each other to right the wrongs and dominated the final stages to win brilliantly by the odd goal in
The collection of Hill’s Youth Teams once again represented the Club with style over the weekend. The season so far has shown every team to be competitive at the very least with wins more common than defeats but whatever the result the players are showing great team work and resilience. Rovers 8s secured a mid-season promotion with an 8-2 defeat of Danbury with the 11s going one better winning 9-2 at Hatfield Broad Oak. A player shortage meant Beacon’s 15s played long term rivals Springfield with only ten men and two own goals didn’t help as they went down with spirit intact, 2-3. The 13s lost 0-3 but can look back with the ‘maybe glasses’ at a missed penalty and two strikes of the woodwork in a tight game with Intersports. Rovers’ 10s hosted the same Club and
played some great passing football in a 3-3 draw whilst in the road the 9s beat Heybridge 5-0. Huge thanks to Ryan, Joy and the team for the Clubroom foodfest; a great place to spend some time after football.
