St Mary's Old Boys RFC Under-16s celebrate their cup final win.

St Mary’s Old Boys U16 Team became Bristol Junior Combination cup champions on Sunday as they beat Wells 38-0 to lift the trophy in the stands of Clifton RFC.

A successful game of rugby saw them use the long and short ball to great effect, adding several tries in the second half against a stubborn Wells side who failed to score all game.

St Mary’s and Clifton had been tipped to meet in the final, but they clashed in the semi-final instead, giving Wells an easy run through.

At the end of the tournament it was the Green and Blacks who lifted the cup, with three different teams in attendance to witness their jubilation.

Confidence is high in the St Mary’s Under 16 team, who will be looking to continue their cup form in the league.

St Mary’s Under-16s edge through to cup final

Posted on Wednesday 4th December 2013 at 9:30 am by Connor Summers

BJC under-16s cup game between St Mary's Old Boys RFC and Clifton.

Sunday morning at Northwood Park, Trench Lane, saw St Mary’s Old Boys RFC host a fantastic Bristol Junior Combination under-16s cup game against Clifton, a match that had a lot riding on it.

The two teams had met before in the final of the Gloucester Cup last season, so the home side were ready to dish out revenge, something they were rather successful in doing as they beat the talented Clifton side 5-0, winning the game by a single try.

A high pressure match was watched by many as the two sides went hammer and tongs to make it to the final. Only one could prevail however, a first half try from Mike Green was the crucial score that won them the game.

Several scrums within the game were dominated by St Mary’s, but some errors here and there allowed Clifton to break with the ball although they weren’t able to make it through the strong St Mary’s defence, who held on to punt the ball out of play at the final whistle and to give them their first win over the Clifton side since the two squads were in the under-8s age group.

St Mary’s captain Rhys James said there were lessons to be learnt coming away from the game, adding: “However, we have learnt from the best of them”.

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.
