BCPS girls football team had their first ever fixture away at St Peters (Budleigh) on Wednesday. It was the very first time they had played a competitive match together and they found the first half tough-going. The team was captained by Kelsey Salter who led the line well. Despite being 3 – 0 down at half-time, Broadclyst fought back well in the second half and the score line remained at 3 – 0 at full-time. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and they are all looking forward to their next fixture.
The boys 1st Team also had a very tough match on the adjacent pitch. Again the conditions were not easy, with a narrow pitch and small goals. Despite going 1 – 0 down early on, Broadclyst fought back and dominated the second half, having numerous chances to put the match beyond St Peters. The St Peters goalkeeper was a deserved man of the match, as time and time again he prevented Broadclyst from scoring. The game finished 2 – 2 which was probably a fair result. Congratulations to Charlie Tapp who was the star player for BCPS.
