The following is an update on both our newly formed Ladies and Veterans Teams.
Bromsgrove Sporting Ladies Team
It was a great result for the new Bromsgrove Sporting Ladies Team, as they beat Worcester Under-23s 10 on Sunday, away at Claines Lane.
A goal from Meg Revitt in the 2nd half was the difference between the two sides, which was a great return to form after a tough 5-2 defeat against Hereford the Sunday previous.
Manager Alan Horton commented: “It was a workmanlike performance but a hard-fought win today, against a very competitive
Worcester Under-23s ladies side.
“The ladies are beginning to play with a lot more confidence and are now beginning to gel as a team, working extremely hard – as is shown in their results. Well done to them for a top drawer performance!
“Bromsgrove Ladies are now into their 6th ever game together, winning five (including friendlies). Coming from all levels of ladies’ football, and from 16 – 43 years of age, the amazing team spirit they have now grown between them is awesome.
“These ladies will get better and I am proud of every one of them. As a manager, I could not ask for more.”
Bromsgrove Sporting Veterans Team
Unfortunately, Bromsgrove Sporting Veterans’ game was postponed on Sunday. Their next match is an away game against Aston Rangers on Sunday 11th October. Their next home fixture is the following Sunday, at the Victoria Ground, at 10.30am.
Veterans Team Secretary Jon Hems commented: “Well, four weeks into the start of the 20/21 Season and it has been a turbulent start for the Bromsgrove Sporting Vets.
“With games being called off due to COVID-19 and bad weather, it’s been a slow start to the season. However, the results have given a completely different story.
“With the Vets first ever home game at the Victoria Ground and the pitch in wonderful condition, it gave way to us playing some lovely football, with a final result of a 7-0 win over Holy Souls.
“With our second league game being called off due to bad weather, a friendly was organised over at Sutton Town against Coles Lane, who lie 2nd in the division above, but again Sporting showed their quality with a comfortable 7-2 win.
“We go again this weekend, away to Aston Rangers, who lie 2nd in the League and are undefeated.
“They will no doubt be formidable opposition, with ex-Bromsgrove Sporting player Mark Bellingham playing up front for the home team.
“A winning result here will be a huge boost for Sporting, as this then leads us into back to back home games at the Victoria Ground on the 18th & 25th October (10.30am KO).
“We would love to see more of the fabulous Sporting fans at our home games, as your support is a huge boost to the players.
“Entry is FREE to everyone and it is a good opportunity to see some good football on a Sunday Morning. We look forward to seeing you at the Victoria Ground.”
