Everyone at Golden Hill Sonics is getting excited about the festive season and we have had a lot of fun recently despite ongoing problems with the wet/cold Bristol weather!
We have been supporting the ‘Football Remembers’ campaign, and have been taking mixed team photos to celebrate the spirit of the 1914 Christmas truce – details can be found here www.footballremembers.com.
Our younger children have been enjoying their opportunities to have fun and improve their skills in training sessions run by our dedicated coaches. Our under 9s have also been playing in the Bristol Saturday Youth League Autumn Trophy event, enjoying their recent fixture against Stockwood.
Our under 11s have been involved in some close matches recently – we have played Frampton Rangers twice and Whitchurch Rhinos. All of them have been played in a great spirit with our boys teamwork enabling them to win each game.
The under 12s have also won their recent matches, with a victory over FC Highnam taking them through to the next round of the Cup, and League matches against Cam Everside Titans and Rodborough Tigers.
Our under 13s have only managed to play one match recently with Westbury Park Foxes coming out on top in an enjoyable game.
The under 14s have played a couple of matches, losing to a strong Bishopston side and winning against Shirehampton. Their highlight, though, has been going for a team meal at Planet Pizza!
Our under 15s' fine form has continued with their recent 2-1 victory over Yate United making it five wins on the bounce. The under 16s have only had one fixture, enjoying an exciting 3-3 draw with Ingleside at Eastville Park. The unbeaten run of our under 18s finally came to an end against Hanham but we are still second in the League.
