Goals galore as super Sonics storm ahead

SONICS have been enjoying the improved weather in Bristol in recent weeks. Thanks to our groundsman, the pitches at Golden Hill are looking fantastic and have been allowing our teams to play the sort of football that the children enjoy playing and adults enjoy watching.

It is a lovely sight every Saturday morning seeing our youngest players enjoying training, with lots of touches on the ball, or 5-a-side matches against other local teams. The recently adopted format has been great for the kids’ development, allowing them all to feel more involved when they play matches.
Our under 9s and 10s have enjoyed their recent Bristol Saturday Youth League Trophy matches. Both year groups have seen the benefits of children being comfortable in possession and have scored lots of goals as a result of playing as a team.
The under 11s have been involved in some fantastic matches against Mangotsfield United, Brislington Wanderers and St Nicks recently. They have played some genuinely entertaining football and are currently at the top of Hanham Minor League Division D!
The under 12s have continued to play their brand of attractive football, finding recently that it doesn’t always result in the goals that other teams score with a more ‘direct’ style of play but it is still more enjoyable to involve our midfield in the game.
Our under 13s have finished their BSYL season but the under 14s still have a few games to go - they have enjoyed recent matches against Rockleaze and Westbury Park without getting the results that seem to be so important to some adults! Our boys show every week that they are a brilliant team that all trust each other.
Our under 15s have developed a healthy rivalry with Henbury over the years and enjoyed their back to back matches recently. A couple of determined performances have resulted in 3-2 victories on both occasions – the lads have continued to play some great stuff on difficult pitches and are now 4tn in Avon Youth League Division 2 .
The under 16s have played some very competitive games against Bishopston and Portishead in recent weeks. They are really looking forward to hosting Thornbury Town in their Cup Semi-Final – the whole club will be wishing them well !
Our under 18s continue to represent the club really well and, despite the odd result going against them, are still leading the Bristol Central League.
We are as busy as always off the pitch with our annual AGM coming up and a trip to support Bristol Academy at Ashton Gate.
