Another game - another win for the U12’s today - we took on a talented Rugby Town / Borough Puma’s in their own back yard.

Brinklow U7's Colts Vs Coventry Utd
In very cold and wet conditions the U7's Colts turned out yet another excellent team performance against an unknown opposition in Coventry United.
This Brinklow team moved the ball around, looked for space and worked very hard for each other for duration of the game. Lucas bagged another hatrick & Ethan added 2 more goals to his tally for the season, one of which was set up by this weeks Star Player Beth.
Well done Beth & Well done team, superb effort.

The Eagles came firing out of the blocks from the start, shooting into a early lead. They dominated the 1st half , with an excellent goals scored by Leo and Ethan, with Assists from Joss and Charlie respectively, who along with Reuben held the midfield and defence superbly.
A closer 2nd Half, with Leamington coming back into the game by scoring a scrappy goal, but Grace sealed the win, with a lovely run and finish.
An excellent all round team performance.
Well done Eagles.
Brinklow U8's Falcons
Brinklow U8's Hawk's
Brinklow U9's Vs St Finbarrs
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 Coventrians
Brinklow U11’s had been moved up a league and we were all excited to see how the team would perform at the next level. In difficult conditions on a heavy surface, the team were slow to get started and Coventrians dominated the first 5 minutes and forced some strong defending and solid goalkeeping from Noah. The boys started to settle down to there passing game and with Matthew pulling the strings in centre Midfield, Brinklow began to go on a sustained attack, resulting in Brinklow going in up at half time through Riley Hobson getting both goals. The second half saw Coventrians try and force the play, but some great defending by Joseph and Marco and a string of saves from Noah kept us two up until Tom Craig got on the scoresheet and Riley got his Hat Trick and a Man of the Match Performance with 10 minutes left to go. A great team effort by all of the boys saw 12 tired and happy faces at the end of play.
