BSTFC teams progress to next round of cup

Bradley Stoke Town FC.

The Bradley Stoke Town FC (BSTFC) A and B teams have both progressed to the next round of the cup following their matches last weekend.

The game between the A Team and Filton Athletic took place on the top field of the Jubilee Centre. A successful game for the A team, the final score ending up 4-3, and beating a team two divisions above (Filton coming from Division One of the Bristol and Suburban League). Chris Sheppard, Adam Gardiner and Dave Dinely scoring the goals for the A Team.

The B Team beat Cosmos Reserves 4-1. Frank P got the first goal for the Bradley Stoke team, setting them on their way for the rest of the game. Mike Tait then took his chance well to give the team a two goal cushion. Luis took the third goal for the team before half time, putting the game to bed – a well taken goal with some excellent build up play to create the chance.

Manager Steve Kerton must have said something right, as, with eight minutes left to play, Bradley Stoke went 4-0 up before a consolation goal for Cosmos brought the final score to 4-1.

There was one other game at Bradley Stoke this weekend as the First Team took on high-flying rivals Hambrook in a close game that ended in a 2-2 draw, Lukas Kavoukas and captain Tom Smyth taking both of the goals for Hambrook, in amongst the Bradley Stoke goals that were scored by Nathan Corney, with a well taken finish at the back post and Adam Townsend, who shot through a small crowd into the bottom corner. After a brief fight for the win, the final whistle went and the points were shared.

Medal winners from Bradley Stoke Judo Club.

Bradley Stoke Judo Club have done it again, competing at the British Championships for the veterans and under-12s!

Two Coaches from BSJC proved once again that they had what it takes to compete with the best in Britain. Nick Brave, Head Coach at BSJC, won the British Championships for the fifth time in a row with a dominant display of judo, while Trevor King added a silver medal to that tally.

On the Sunday, a team of seven BSJC players attended the Under-12s British Championships and all of them made it through the first knockout rounds and six went on to medal .

Ryan Salman won the gold in style, dominating all his fights.

Five bronzes were won, by: Tatum Keen,Alex Salman, Zoe Okoye, Jess Reeves and Sam Bass.

Coach Pete Douglas commented:

“So we took nine players to the two events and eight medalled. We had a fantastic success rate at the under-12, as we took six medals (the other West of England clubs won only three  medals between them).”

Congratulations this week to our Iron Lady, Liz Naude, who participated in the Tough Mudder on Saturday!

Four of our Sole Sisters (pictured above) ran the inaugural Watermore 10k yesterday – a really great run around Frampton Cotterell and Winterbourne, which was very well organised with some challenging hills thrown in for good luck!
