Brinklow U12's Vs Cov Sphinx
Tough day at the office today for the U12’s - came up against a very talented Cov Sphinx who just oozed class - we gave them a little to much time and space and got punished.
They have been amazing and will bounce back next week for sure - all the best sides have an off day - we will pick them up Tuesday - build on the positives and move forward.
We scored two great goals from Ollie and Riley whilst at the other end Logan proved once again how important he is to this team 💛💙⚽️ 💛💙⚽️

Despite taking a first half lead the U9's knew it was going to be an uphill struggle with no subs, and the normally reliable keeper missing from the game and one of the boys picking up an injury in the second half.
The team fought really hard and gave it everything they could from the first minute till the last, but they will enjoy the Xmas break now and hope 2020 will bring them some luck, and go on to finish the season strongly.

Brinklow U11's Vs Bedworth Utd
An early kick off at the Oval, saw a slow start from Brinklow but a good defensive display ensured the score stayed at 0-0. Brinklow began to slowly get into the game and the centre midfield battle was being won by Matthew and Leo with some good passing throughout the team. A mistake between the Bedworth goalkeeper and defender along with some great closing down by Shae led to his and Brinklow’s first goal. Brinklow continued to build from the back and a good attack was broken down by Bedworth with a foul on Harry, whom stepped up and took the free kick. The goalkeeper saved the free kick only for it to drop for Ryley to tap home for his seventh goal in 4 games.
The second half saw Bedworth start strong and forced some great defensive tackles and good saves from Noah, who was having another strong game. The midfield were playing their part, with some great defensive tracking back from Man of the Match Harry Johnson. The pressure told for Bedworth whom scored a well deserved goal to make it a tense final 15 minutes. Brinklow stepped up their game and got stronger as the match went on and were unfortunate not to grab more goals.
A great game played in a really good spirit between both teams.
