Crucial end of season games for BSTFC

Players from Bradley Stoke Town win the Glos FA Cup in 2011.

With the 2013/14 football season drawing to a close, Bradley Stoke Town FC’s (BSTFC’s) teams are due to play their final games at the Jubilee Centre [BS32 8HL] over the next few days.

On Thursday (1st May), the First Team is at home to Chipping Sodbury, with a 6.30pm kick-off. A win would cement a third place position with the expectation of yet another promotion.

On Saturday (3rd May), the club’s 4th team (The Bs) are at home to Sea Mills Park, with a 2.30pm kick-off, while the Reserve Team is away to Talbot Knowle United Reserves, where a win would cement a very creditable seventh place.

The A Team have finished their games for this season, reaching a guaranteed fourth spot. If remaining results go their way, they could stay in their present third place, again with a possibility of promotion.

BSTFC Club Chairman Ian Drew commented:

“Bradley Stoke Town FC is probably the most successful football club in the South Gloucestershire/Bristol area, with five promotions for the First Team and also two League Cups, all within the last nine years.”

“More successful than other teams in the Bristol area (those wearing red or blue!) and it’s free to watch.”

“Why not come along, if you can, and watch your local team? We look forward to seeing you.”

BSNC First Team remain top of Division One

Bradley Stoke Netball Club's First Team in action against Chipping Sodbury.

A Saturday morning game at the University of the West of England saw Bradley Stoke Netball Club’s (BSNC’s) First Team remain at the top of the league after they put in a polished performance over PSL Panthers, who are struggling in the bottom half of the table.

Bradley Stoke dominated the first quarter, building an early lead which set them up for the high scoring three quarters they had ahead of them. With some excellent shooting, Bradley Stoke were scoring frequently and remaining one step ahead of the Panthers, who struggled to keep the ball when they were in possession.

Su Chung, playing centre for Bradley Stoke, dominated the centre of the court with fast passes out to wing attack and linking up well with goal attack to create chances for her team, but also helping out in the defence when needed, making some crucial interceptions which could have impacted the score at the end of the game.

Wing attack Jo Maxwell, linking up well with other attacking members on the team to create chances, contributed to a great all-round performance from Bradley Stoke, who passed the ball well and didn’t allow Panthers to play their own game.

With the score going into the final quarter of the game 60-16, Bradley Stoke secured a big victory over the Panthers, the final score being 72-23.

BSYFC Under-11 Girls remain unbeaten

Posted on Wednesday 6th November 2013 at 3:05 pm by Connor Summers

Bradley Stoke Youth FC's Under-11 Girls Team in action against Longwell Green.

The Bradley Stoke Youth FC (BSYFC) Under-11 Girls remain unbeaten after their 6-2 win over Longwell Green Whites on Sunday morning.

The game, which was held at Patchway Community College, kicked off in windy conditions which affected the game throughout.

The home side got going early when Zoe Jones hit a wonder-strike into the top of the net just minutes after kick off; this was after the first goal got the scoring on its way when the ball rolled into the net just out of reach for the keeper.

This was closely followed by some excellent team play from the girls which ended in Olivia Hood getting the next with a fantastic assist from Lydia Tang, who then got the fourth herself with an excellent finish.

It all looked set to be a perfect half for the Bradley Stoke side but Longwell Green were able to capitalise on a slight defensive error to squeeze in a goal of their own before half time.

Millie was the next to put the ball in the back of the net for the Bradley Stoke side; she took an excellent touch to set her up for a fantastic shot that found its way into the bottom corner for the first goal in the second half.

Longwell Green were the next to have the ball in the net as they claimed their second goal of the game, but they could not keep up with a fantastic Bradley Stoke side who managed to get a total of six goals over the course of the game, Olivia and Esme scoring the two goals for Longwell Green.

Peplow hat-trick bags three points for BSTFC

Posted on Thursday 31st October 2013 at 3:34 pm by Connor Summers

Bradley Stoke Town FC's Sam Peplow scores a hat-trick against St Pancras.

A returning Sam Peplow scored three goals for Bradley Stoke Town FC (BSTFC’s) First Team as they grabbed a last minute winner against St Pancras on Saturday afternoon.

In a close game, Bradley Stoke found themselves 2-1 down at half time after Dan Hedges and Joel Wallis had scored for the away side, with Peplow grabbing a consolation goal for BSTFC.

In the second half, after some crowd trouble, Bradley Stoke were able to draw level with a powerful Peplow shot that nestled into the bottom corner.

This increased the intensity of the game and the Hornets were looking for a winner. It was found in the dying minutes of the game when debutant Joe Love, who was solid all game, put through an experienced Peplow to slot the ball under the away keeper, bagging all three points for Bradley Stoke.
