VETERANS

After several weeks without a game due to waterlogged pitches, Sporting Vets headed over to the County Headquarters to play West Brom Spinney on Sunday. It was not the ideal game to come back to, with West Brom having such a strong side, with Lee Chilton up top and new signing, ex-professional Matthew Barnes-Homer. Adding to this, Bromsgrove only travelled with 12 men after three late pull outs.

Sporting feared the worst after five minutes, when West Brom capped off some lovely one touch football with Chilton firing home from 25 yards. Sporting showed some real resilience though and played some good football, resulting in new signing Richard Evans scoring the equaliser on the 20 minute mark.

Sporting continued to battle well and looked like going in at half time level, until Chilton scored a deflected effort in the 45th minute.

The second half got underway and Sporting battled well – they got their reward with a well taken goal from Ollie Jones to make it 2-2.

West Brom then started to play some very good football and the tired legs of Sporting showed when they conceded a well worked goal after 75 minutes to go 3-2 behind. Bromsgrove again showed some real character despite their obvious tiredness and, over the last 15 minutes, had the much better chances to equalise, but unfortunately couldn’t find the net and the result ended in a 3-2 loss.

Sporting’s Man of the Match was shared between Ollie Jones and Richard Evans, who both ran their socks off and scored the goals.

This was followed by a narrow 4-3 defeat at Northfield Town on Wednesday. They are back at the Victoria Ground vs Droitwich on Sunday (10:30 KO).

U10 Reds win CWYFL cup and complete the double

Bromsgrove Sporting U10s celebrated adding more silverware to the trophy cabinet on Sunday, as they won the CWYFL Winter Cup to go with the Autumn Cup they had won back in November. 

Playing a very respected Olton Ravens team, Sporting were winners on the day 3-1, with two goals from captain Dylan Barnfield and one from Ollie Watson. But in an end to end game, goalkeeper Lenny Jones won MOTM for some heroic saves throughout. 

After previously getting to three finals and not being successful, this season has proved to be amazing for the group, with the team also recently celebrating going a full year unbeaten. Well done to all the players and coaches.

Coach Dan says: “The players embraced the targets we set them at the start of the season. We agreed that the priority was to go and win a trophy, as we had been so close in the past. People may think that it’s too early to promote such a mentality in a group of young boys, but with the right attitude and support from a superb team of parents, it can be done. All the glory must go to the 11 players who achieved their goals!”

Meanwhile, our U12s won their league as well…

GIRLS

Bromsgrove Sporting Girls Under 9 

This weekend saw the U9s take on Catshill in a local derby league game. In attendance, returning the favour after the U9 girls were mascots the week before, were some of the Ladies Team and manager Alan Horton.

Sporting got off to a flying start, taking the lead with a very worked goal and some great individual dribbling by Mia.

They then continued the strong start with some very good defending and great forward work that saw Sophie hit the post. The score was level at half time after Catshill equalised.

Second half was tough, as tiredness kicked in, allowing Catshill back into the game more. A game of two halves – Sporting on top in the first and the opposition in the second.

After the match, the U9s manager had feedback from Catshill to say how much they had improved since their first encounter at the start of the season. A second game in a row that Sporting have competed, giving the opposition a real game.

The Sporting Ladies side also commented on how well the girls did – they really enjoyed it and will be back again to support in the future. Performance of the Match was chosen and presented by the ladies – awarded to Aibhlinn Curson.

Bromsgrove Sporting Girls Under 18MW

Sporting had a very strong first half. They were keeping possession of the ball and making excellent passes. However the opposition did score twice, but Bromsgrove didn’t let this bother them and they continued persevering through the first half.

During the second half, Bromsgrove still remained strong and kept their heads held high. With this determination, they scored a goal. Despite the opposition scoring another four goals, they still kept their heads up and didn’t get disheartened. They lost 6-1, but they didn’t let the defeat bring their spirits down. 

Bromsgrove are looking forward to their next game against Walsall, on Saturday.

Bromsgrove Sporting Under 18TL

Sporting entertained Rugby this week in the semi final of the cup. Rugby have a reputation for being a fierce, competitive and skilful side, sitting at the top of the Premier Table – they certainly lived up to their reputation.

Sporting started slowly but were defending well. As the first half continued, they began to feel more confident and started to play. Some good interchanges created a chance that was well saved by the opposition keeper. It continued to be end to end until half time. 0-0.

The second half started and Bromsgrove started to get on top. A tremendous full length finger tip save onto the post stopped them from going ahead. As the game continued, Rugby made a few good chances but Bromsgrove’s keeper was on top form and they held out until the 75th minute, where a highly dubious penalty was awarded to Rugby, which was scored.

Bromsgrove continued to try and get the equaliser but to no avail. Best wishes go to Rugby in the final. 

This Saturday, they play Telford.

The U18s continue to look for players for next year, as they have a few players moving into the open age bracket. If interested, please contact Alan Williams on 07786 983 951.
