Friendly rivalry and fantastic football

NOVEMBER was a fun yet challenging month for everyone at Golden Hill Sonics.

NOVEMBER was a fun yet challenging month for everyone at Golden Hill Sonics. The children enjoyed their football but the wet weather in Bristol caused some matches to be postponed. We were, however, lucky to enjoy sunshine as we observed a minute’s silence on Remembrance Day.

Our under 7s enjoyed their first home matches recently, entertaining Bishop Road in fun friendlies. Our other younger year groups also played Bishop Road and continued to practice on Saturdays, taking advantage of The Downs when Golden Hill has been too wet to use.

The u11s played a couple of entertaining competitive fixtures, winning 4-1 away at Longwell Green and losing an exciting match 2-1 at home to Keynsham Town Colts. Our u12s are continuing to play some attractive attacking football and won an end-to-end game at Severnside 4-3.

Our u13s enjoyed their Bristol Saturday Youth League matches against Ingleside and Bishopston, and are looking forward to hosting Westbury Park Foxes in a match that will involve some friendly school rivalry. The u14s played some fantastic football in their wins against Rockleaze (5-4) and Stoke Lane (11-5) – Simon Foot has been in fine goalscoring form, scoring 4 in the last match to make it 14 for him for the season. The boys are looking forward to hosting local friendly rivals Bishopston next.

Our u15s won both their November fixtures, against Roman Glass and Bristol Central, to make it 4 wins on the bounce and we are now 5th in Avon Youth League Division 2. The u16s were pleased to get their first win of the season in the Cup at Thornbury Town (5-3) involving a great performance from the boys, in particular goalkeeper Liam Buckland.

Our u18s are still going very well, remaining unbeaten, and second in their League after a home draw with St Nick’s and an away win at Stapleton.
