Following a stunning comeback the previous week from the Jaws of defeat against Buxton 1st team the team was in a buoyant mood. On arrival in Wolverhampton they were met by a cold but sunny scene which had successfully defrosted the pitch. Burton piled on the pressure from the start, with a high press which resulted in panic amongst the Wolverhampton ranks. Toby Ganley chasing the teams league top goal scorer and Tom Gibbs linked very well. Captain Ben Meir, Simon Saccaggi and Harry Clarke were controlling the middle and Tim Glover, Stephen Goodfellow and Kieran Whetton provided stability in defence. They were easily taking the ball off of Wolves and passing around the back with effortless poise. It wasn't long before the pressure told and Ike Zieliński-Raynor put away 2 stunning efforts. Rob Pilgrim popped up with a 'hammer' from open play and was also key in winning a flick which was clinically dispatched by the evergreen Kevin Stanyon. Harrison Kemp also belted home to put Burton 5-0 up at half time. Their home squad of 16 were shocked and stunned, and Burton were on fire! Wolverhampton changed tactics in the second half and parked the proverbial bus and did score in the 2nd half but the job was well and truly done by then as Burton won 5 1. Man of the match with 2 stunning goals was Zieliński-Raynor. Next week they will want to keep this fine run going against second in the league Shrewsbury.

After a quick aerial to Jamie Jenkins, he decided to lob the keeper but ended up winning the first short corner of the game.Andrew Locker pushed one out straight and Liam Goode muscled it through the defenders on the line to go 1-0 up. Coalville showed grit and determination to get their first win of the season as their striker wriggled his way down the left side to slot in a goal to the near post. Half time had come and the game was currently all in the balance at 1-1.

Once again quickly after the restart Jenkins wriggled his way through numerous players and found Jamie Cooper who supplied Rich Stringer to get his first goal back in the 1st team.

Burton Hockey Men 32s traveled the short distance to Rugby knowing that we were up against with only 10 players and went down 2 1 . Burton started slowly and Rugby took control but great tackling from Miles Smurfwaite and Simon White and some decent saves from keeper Russell Jurgen Davenport kept Burton in the game. Rugby got frustrated and Burton got into the game and won a couple of short corner at witch Burton took the lead when Jack Chambers tried a flick ,which was going over but was deflected in by a Rugby defender . Burton tried to hold on but Rugby had 70% of the play and in the end the 10 players of Burton got tired and conceded two late goals the first from a lucky deflection and 2nd from a hopeful cross that went in of the unlucky  Smurfwaite that wrong footed Davenport in goal . 

Burton Men 3s had a 3 all draw with Buxton 1s coming back from  3-1 down well into the second half. 
Buxton 1s have been thrashing teams and scoring loads of goals so Burton knew they had a game on their hands. Setting up slightly differently than normal Burton adopted a 4-4-2 formation. Buxton were strong and set about trying to enforce dominance in the midfield which they achieved early on and went 1 up. Burton stepped up and started to get back into it clawing one back through a Rob Pilgrim pile driver from a short.. A tight and even game followed and the teams went in 1-1 at half time. Back out for the second half and Buxton started to turn it on eventually going 3-1 up. Some stunning defensive displays  from Tim Glover, James Crane Pilgrim and Keiran Whetton.

Burton Hockey Ladies 1s finished a run of friendlies with an away fixture against Lichfield 2s. Burton started the game with good ball pace and fast passing, always 1 step ahead of the opposition and kept this up for the first 10 minutes. Lichfield used a long ball to break through Burton's lines and scored the first goal of the game against the run of play. Burton reacted immediately with Sophie Carlton-Greaves making a good run with the ball into the D and managed to sneak it under the keeper and over the line for 1-1 at  half time. Burton’s slick passing had taken a back seat as Lichfield just sought out the long ball and forced Burton away from their desired style of play. A period of 15 minutes in the second half saw Burton playing very defensively with some good saves from Megan Bignell and man of the match Francesca Lord breaking down many of their attacks. Finally Burton were looking threatening on the counter attack and after many unfinished chances, Amy Palmer jumped on a loose ball in the D and fired home, taking a small deflection on the line from a defender. The scoreline remained at 2-1 until the dying minute of the game when a slip from right back Abi Lester left Lichfield with an overload which they took advantage of and slotted home with some neat passing around the keeper for the draw.

It was a return to league hockey for the Mens section and Burton Hockey Cub Men’s 1s played their first league against Lichfield 2’s away dressed smartly in their first team kit from sponsor Bott.

Burton started the game extremely fast paced and to the point. After a sharp transfer round the back and a cutting long ball down the line to Ben Elson, he picked the ball up 1 on 1 with the keeper. Elson slipped it round the keeper as the keeper decided to take him out out winning a penalty stroke which Elson converted.. Lichfield bounced back very quickly with their young forward trickling one into the bottom corner on his reverse stick. Burton with their new formation looked  promising and looked to get thenselves ahead again. With swift play round the D the ball bounced to Jamie Jenkins on the back post who slotted the ball home for his first of the day to take a 2 1 Half time 2-1 lead.

After a positive half time team talk burton were hoping to continue the pressure. Lichfield applied lots of pressure themselves scoring to quick goals to put them 3-2 ahead. Skipper Liam Goode and coach Jamie Cooper rallied the troops as burton bounced back with a second tap in back post for Jenkins. Both teams now fighting for a winner with less than 10 minutes to go, Lichfield broke down their left wing leaving 3 on 1 at the back as the passed around nicely and slotted home their winner. It was an unlucky result today as the team played well and deserved a point rather than a 4-3 defeat. Man of the match was shared by  keeper Jack Smith and Ben Elson

Burton Mens 2s went down 6 0 to Repton 1s. This was no surprise as Repton are storming the league and normally win by 8 clear goals.

Burton Mens 3s had an entertaining 4 all draw with Stafford 2s.

Burton started well but soon had a wake up call going 1-0 down following a break away goal. They stepped things up with some nice flowing hockey and got one back. The game was fairly evenly contested, Burton got another one and then so did Stafford. Burton found ourselves 4-2 up but we're unable to hold on and secure the result, with Stafford tenacious and they wrestled back to 4 each. Burtons play fluctuated between controlled passing and frantic at times. Overall on balance of play a fair result, but there are definate seeds for a storming second half of the season. Goal scorers for Burton were Toby Ganley x2, Stephen Goodfellow and Kev Stanyon. Next game sees them go to the league leaders Finchfield who they drew with at the start of the season.

Burton Ladies 1s had a friendly against Edgbaston 2s at home. With everyone a little rusty after the Christmas break, the game was generally scrappy and not as fast as they usually aim to play. Burton had a number of opportunities on goal in the opening half but didn’t manage to convert. Edgbaston had better luck in that respect and hit the back of the net on their first shot at goal with a short corner strike to make it 1-0 at half time. Second half was much of the same with Burton have all the chances and a frustrating amount of short corners but not managing to find the net. Edgbaston scored another short corner to go 2-0 up.

Burton re-took the lead with Kev Stanyon getting the goal. Burton's defence stood strong with Miles Smurthwaite and Simon White easily snuffing out Boots attempts to find a leveller leaving it 2-1 to Burton at half time.

The second half got underway and for the first ten minutes it was one way traffic as Boots piled on the pressure and this led to a good goal being scored . This seemed to kick Burton into action as the red and green midfield stamped their authority on the game turning the ball over with ease and starting attacks, Burton's new found dominance gave them a second wind as they took Boots to the cleaners with 3 goals in 5 minutes. Firstly Northcott hobbled in from the left and pulled back to Stringer who fired home, 3-2, Steve Goodfellow bravely went in with the keeper on a 50-50 and managed to hit the post, the rebound falling to Stringer for a tap in from a yard for his second and 4-2 ,  Stanyon fired in a bullet cross which was expertly deflected by Ben Meir at the top right of the D for 5-2 to wrap up a stellar 5 minute spell.

Boots did score a  3rd. Burton were not affected by this though and pushed on, wrapping up the game as Northcott completed his hat-trick with one from a corner, and another strike from open play as Stringer breezed down the left wing, cutting inside and finding Northcott with space in the D to fire home for a 7-3 final scoreline.

A solid team performance by all involved, Burton now wait to see who they get in the last 16 on the 10th Feb.

Burton started  strongly in the first half with many opportunities on goal due to a high work rate and most game play being in the oppositions half of the pitch.
