With the luxury of a good surface in wet conditions, the spectators were warmed by an entertaining 80 minutes of drsama as the two under 13 district sides showed the benefits of positive training and enthusiasm.
The game was close throughout despite the home side scoring more, and what was pleasing was the effectiveness of numerpous players who changed positions sometimes twice during the game.
Unfortunately, the under 11s game against Potters Bar has been cancelled on the 29th November as the opposition were unwilling to look for an alternative date. With many away that weekend including all the coaches, it is a shame they could not rearrange especially with so much notice. Never mind, we shall continue as always and no doubt find other opportunities.
The under 13s face North Somerset tomorrow under floodlights at Odd Down. Meanwhile the 12s will face Larkhall FC. The 11s will train as normal.
The 12s will also face WSM on Saturday at Odd Down.
The 10s, 11s, 12s ventured across to Gloucestershire FA on Saturday morning to participate in the ESFA regional festival. However, the weather had its own agenda and although the 10s and 12s were able to get some games in, the 11s were not so lucky.
With so much rain, the pitch actually flooded despite it being an all-weather pitch and so the day was postponed.
A number of BWBs participated in the BANES cross country at Kingswood on Thursday night and Popey's sparrow limbs made it round so fast he got into the top 10!
Good show boys, although it looks like Ironman ran round with his eyes closed...
The under 11s met Yeovil at Odd Down on Bonfire night in the chill at Odd Down; why do they insist on building sports arenas in the areas suffering from the most severest weather conditions?!
Two sides played, and with lots of changes between the teams and in terms of positions, there were a pelasing set of performances, and believe it or not, some goals!
The cheekiest was possibly Evander's scoop, and the best team goal difficult to choose as there were few.
We will be playing Yeovil again on Saturday in the ESFA festival.
Rounding off a busy and fruitful October Half Term holiday, the 13s and 14s travelled across the M4 to play Swindon Academy.
BWB took part in a triangular fixture between AFC Bournemouth ID and Dorset County FA at under 12, 13 and 14 levels yesterday.
The 12/13/14 boys took advantage of the half term break by heading down to Splashdown for a morning of slipping and sliding down watery chutes. Despite the early leave and the windy trek down south, it was an enjoyable morning for all involved.
It was then on to the afternoon's activity up the road.
