Bradley Stoke Town FC Reserves took on Brislington Cricketers Reserves on Saturday afternoon at Bradley Stoke Community School and came away with a 2-0 win.
The first half looked promising as Bradley Stoke were certainly quicker to the ball and had a fair amount of possession. Plus a phenomenal strike from Bradley Stoke centre back Jason Lee, who took the ball on from 30 yards, let rip with a lob which saw the Brislington keeper turn and watch it sail over his head.
In the second half Bradley Stoke continued to dominate possession. They had more chances and their fitness levels looked to be a lot better than those of the other team, important on such a hot day. They used their pace in places but could have used it a lot more as the opposition back four were built more for tackling not tracking back. Adam Sykes figured this out as he came on as a sub and got the Reserves the winner as he outpaced the centre half. The opposition keeper came rushing out; he knocked it round the keeper before knocking the ball in the back of the net.
There were plenty of other chances: Sam Chillcott blasted the ball from inside the 6 yard box into the woods behind the pitch and there was plenty of movement from Chillcott and Sykes when they were playing together but another goal could not be found.

The Bradley Stoke A team also played, on the Jubilee field, against Cribbs Friends Life ‘B’. They didn’t have the best of first halves as they ended 3-0 down at the interval. They did however get one goal back from Shenke Dartey, who headed in from inside the penalty area.
Final Score: 3-1 to Cribbs Friends Life ‘B’.
