Festivals and a five all thriller
This weekend saw the first team and reserves playing away at Old Chelmsfordians. The first team took all 3 points with goals from Charlie Brewer and Jack Walker. The reserves lost 4-2, with Swain Formeman and Jordan Sargeant netting.
Byron Redstar 1 - 1 Beacon Hill U15s The boys played the runaway league leaders on Sunday and came away with a really well-deserved draw The effort desire and commitment from all was immense a real team effort.
Chigwell 4 -2 Beacon Hill U13's A really good battling performance with a scratch side, including no goalkeeper. Unfortunately, we didn't get what they deserved due to some very dubious officiating from one of the home teams parents. Real shame
Beacon Hill U11s 5 - 5 Shooting Stars (AET) For our first ever cup game, we had 14 of the 15 man squad available so we decided to play them all for equal time. Despite playing the better football, the game looked lost at At 4-1 down with 15 to go. But, the team didn't give up, kept playing and a last-minute equaliser took the game to extra time. Taking the lead only to be pegged back took the game to penalties. 4 penalty saves saw Beacon Hill through 2-1 to the relief of the raucous home crowd. Best youth team game ever!
Ongar 3 - 2 Beacon Hill U10s A really competitive game, losing to a last kick of the game-winner. Could have gone either way. Great team performance from Beacon Hill, lovely passing just couldn’t convert chances. Witham Town 3 - 5 Beacon Hill U8s Got to 3 all and snuck the win with 2 last-minute goals
The U7's had a mini-festival in Gt Leighs. Won all 3 games against 2 Coggeshall teams and Great Leighs but the score didn't matter, some great performances, first-time scorers, a goal from the halfway line, the kids had a lot of fun and did BHR proud on the road.
Last weekend saw Beacon Hill host a successful festival for the U7s, U9s and U12s age groups. We had in excess of 120 girls, with visiting teams from Springfield, Broomfield and Little Canfield. The tournament, supported by the Essex FA as part of their Wildcats promotion, caused a bit of a stir on social media. As a result, we’ve received good publicity from the She Can Play website too.We are now looking for a few more current Year 1/2s, Year 3/4s, Year 6/7s and Year 8/9s to boost the teams that are building up nicely.
