Match Report: Whitchurch vs Bierton Football Match

Whitchurch v Bierton

On Friday 10th November, Bierton started the defence of their league title with a trip to Whitchurch.

Team: Harry D (GK), Daniel G, Lewis G (C), Makoto S, Sean D, Alfie W, Jack R, Micah B, Freddie F, Joshua W


Bierton began the game with great confidence, knocking the ball about and creating chances. It wasn’t long until the deadlock was broken through a brilliant left-footed shot from Jack which left the keeper with no chance. Bierton continued to press high up the pitch and gain possession in dangerous areas. The lead was quickly doubled when Sean let fly from just outside the box (on his weaker left foot) which sailed in to the far corner.

Half-time: Whitchurch 0 V 2 Bierton

The second half was more of the same for Bierton. Micah, Josh and Freddie came on but continued where the others left off. They showed great energy and determination to win the ball back and demonstrated great awareness when picking out team mates in space. There was a flurry of goals midway through the second half: Jack powered through to rifle in to the roof of the net. This was followed by Makoto who showed nimble footwork not once but twice to dance round the Whitchurch defenders and slot past the keeper. It was a great team performance and a fantastic start to the league campaign.


Full time: Whitchurch 0 V 5 Bierton
