Burton Hockey Mens 1s had a disappointing game at Sikh Union Nottingham going down 7 2.

 


Burton Men's 2nds hosted high flying West Bridgeford knowing it would be a extremely tough game. The game started at a fast pace with Bridgeford making full use of their 13 players against Burtons bare 11. Bridgeford took a early lead when a aerial ball failed to clear the defence and was collected and dispatched by the powerful Bridgeford forward. Jarvis in goal made several top class saves from open play and penalty corner drag flicks to keep Burton in the game, towards the end of the first half Bridgeford went 2 up with a well worked team goal against the now very tired young defence. In the last minute of the first half Burton pulled a goal back through Dougie Henderson with a highly skilful juggle and lob over his own and the keepers head. The first half ended 2-1. At half time Burton changed formation to a back 5 to try and help the exhausted defence, this worked well along with more great saves from Jarvis. In the last 15 minutes of the game the extra players made the difference and Bridgeford scored 2 more goals. The game ended 4-1, Bridgeford were a very skilful, fit and well drilled side but Burton fought well and with a squad of 12 or 13 the result may have been different. Man of the match for the second week running was Martin Jarvis.
Burton Mens 3rds had a tough game against Worcester who had beat them 5 0 earlier in the season. It didn't look good when Burton went 2 0 down. They were creating the chances and pulled a goal back just before halftime from a Stephen Goodfellow shot that was defected by Pete Gibbs . Burton had been in good recent form and hoped the game was still there for taking . Dave Watkins scored early in the 2nd half with powerful shot that that hit the defender and spun past the keeper. Worcester created the better chances and keeper Russ Davenport needed to be at his best but there were unable to hold on and as Burton pushed the winner Worcester found themselves 2 against the keeper As Davenport tried to clear the ball with his stick outside the D the Worcester forward was able to pick the ball up and dumped the ball into a empty net with only a couple of minutes to go .

 


Burton Men's 4s picked up the only win, 2 0  for the men's section but it was against the Burton 5ths. 

 

Burton ladies1s don't return to league action yet .

 

Burton  ladies 2s faced staveley, who sat 2nd in the league and beat them 3 0 .
With difficult pitch conditions, both teams had to adjust their style of play to fit the pitch. Burton started by making a statement, scoring 2 goals within the first 15 minutes of the game. Staveley then found themselves gaining a green card, following this Staveley struggled to pose much of an attack, with Burton's solid defence keeping them out. Half time came with Burton 2 0 up and confident.

The second half Burton knew they had to keep the play simple, working with short passes across the pitch. From this Burton found themselves with another goal, from a good strike from the top D. Staveley pushed for the last 10 minutes, hoping to gain a goal in the game. The defence was working hard for a clean sheet and staveley couldn't get a goal. Final score ws 3-0 with 2 goals for Shannon Dillon and Hatty Shenton getting the other.

Man of the match went to Hattie Barnes for her solid efforts in defence.
 

Burton Ladies 3s made the journey up to a cold and wet Belper. Both sides started well and burton improved their performance from the last few weeks. Burton played some nice 1 2 passes but Belper were quick to pick up any misplaced passes, breaking quickly they had several shots on goal but burtons defence held  out and went into half time goalless.


Belper's first goal came early in the second half and was a well executed goal, another was quickly conceded.
Burton took some nasty shots to the body but went down to 10 men when Becky Thandi took a hit to her ankle. Belpers 11 plus 2 substitutions took advantage and slotted a 3rd into the backboard. Determined not to concede another, burton dug their heels in and defended hard for the remainder of the match. Some good defending and a great effort from everyone. Man of the match was shared between Felicity Norcross and Annie Lord.




Burton Ladies 4s lost 1-0 to Matlock 4ths in freezing cold conditions making it hard for both teams. Burton,  started strongly with  the midfield distributing well and  passing well. Belper then scored from a controversial penalty flick. Which came against the run of play with the back four in control and not really being challenged. Tilly Winter was called into action a couple of times and made some good saves. Zoe Ridley was her usual dependable self in defence, not only playing well when called into action, but keeping the team balanced and organised.

Burton battled well throughout to try and create a goal. Claire Leadbeater got herself into some good positions on the right hand side as did Monica El-Khanagry on the left. Kate Lichfield worked hard to make herself available. Burton’s passing in all areas of the pitch was good despite the defeat. 

Perhaps the highlight of the day was the Burton debut of Izzy Ridley after turning 13, she was excellent upfront finding space and showing great awareness and skills on the ball as well as confidence beyond her years. 

 

Match Report for 20/01/2018

 

Burton Mens 1sts started the next round of league fixture with a home match  against Bloxwich hoping to get back on a winning role. 
The drills before the match got the team prepared for a fast start and Mark Northcott quickly put Burton 1-0 with a well executed drag flick. Burton then quickly kept up the pressure with 2 more quick fire goals putting the hosts 3-0. The most memorable of goals being scored by Ben Elson returning to the Red and Greens who smashed home a rocket from top of the D. With the substitutes filling in well with constant rotation Burton ran Bloxwich ragged with a goal from Jamie Jenkins and one more goal made it 5-0 at half time. The break seemed to help Bloxwich  as they performed far better in the second half. Only one goal was scored in the second half, another tap in by Jamie Jenkins. One reason for a laid back second half was the injury to Jamie Cooper who had a mouth injury and had to leave the pitch. The match finished 6-0 to a lively Burton team with another hatrick from Mark Northcott, 2 goals by Jamie Jenkins and one from Ben Elson. Ashley Wheldon was man of the match for a fine midfield performance. A good day for young Burton keeper Jack Smith whose clean sheet earned him extra pocket money. 


Burton Mens 2nds made the sort journey to Belper where they always knew they would face a tough game. Belper started the stronger and soon went 1-0 up when a misshit shot went under the keeper Martin Jarvis. Belper then increased the pressure and only a string of fine saves from Jarvis kept Burton in the game. Belper were starting to get frustrated, from aquickly taken free hit Kieran Whetton played a quick cross field ball to an unmarked Rob Wright who slotted the ball across to Dougie Styles who slotted home on the spin. Half time arrived with the score at 1-1. In the 2nd half Belper switched up a gear and pressed high and hard, the experience of Ed Clamp, Conner Jenkins and Graeme Hamblen proved invaluable in midfield and that along with some more great saves from Jarvis kept Belper at bay. Eventually Belper regained the lead from a misplaced defensive aerial but Burton kept their composure. In the last 10 minutes Burton played some  1 touch hockey, one such move saw the ball start with Kieran whetton at the back go through 7 passes to Toby Ganley wide on the left who's cross found Tim glover who passed to Rob Wright who calmly flicked the ball over the on coming keeper. In the last few minutes Burton pushed for the winner but the final whistle ended the game 2-2. A great result giving Burton its first point of the season against the third placed team. Man of the match was shared between Ben Wells and Martin Jarvis.


Burton Hockey Mens 3s travelled to Stourport for a late game . There were welcome returns to the team for Dave Watkins and Owen Walters. Stourport scored early which was followed by Simon White picking up a knock left Burton thinking there luck was out.
Burton had some promising moments without getting a clear chance and with  some good defending were able to keep the score to 1 0 . The 2nd half was pretty even but Burton did take advantage of two quick breaks aways to score goals from Robert Pilgrim and Tom Gibbs and were able to hold on for victory and move out of the bottom 3.


Burton Men's 4s travelled to face Loughborough Town 5s and found them selves 5 2 down. Ironically Loughborough were benefiting from their cancelling of there 6th team match against Burton 5s meaning they had a stronger squad. Burton finally kicked into gear and pulled it back to 5 4 and had two good chances to draw before the whistle went. A hat trick for Andrew Woolley and Ben Langrick got the other goal


Burton Hockey club 6s played their first game since early December against mid-table Northampton Saints 7s. The quality of play was poor to begin with, as the rustiness showed early on with several mishit passes. However, both teams soon settled and Northampton looked dangerous going forwards in numbers. This opened up gaps behind them though which Burton took advantage of, hitting their opponents with devastating counter-attacks as they stormed to a 5-0 halftime lead. One a fine effort from Steve Morrison who, having received a pass at the top of the D, dribbled around the top and finished with a shot in the corner of the net. The best goal resulting from several short, sharp passes cumulating in a finish near the post by Joshua Bullock. Northampton fought back in the second half, gaining several short corners. However, Burton's defence held firm and when a lapse of concentration did let a forward in one-on-one against keeper Jack Tandy, he stood firm and pulled off a great save to maintain a clean sheet. The midfield slowly began to take back control, with more fine play securing 3 more goals. The final score was thus 8-0, by far the 6s biggest win of the season, their first clean sheet and preserving their unbeaten home record. Goalscorers were Morrison (3),  Bullock (2), Harry Clarke (2) and Luke Humphries. Everyone played  well for a first game back but Dan Horsey-Elson was nominated man of the match for his fine attacking skills on the left where he created havoc.


Team of the season so far, Burton Ladies 1s  travelled away to Matlock with a bare 11 and came away with a 1-1 draw. Goal from Harriet Buxton. a good result against  a side 2 leagues above them, good preparation for the second half of the league season as they look to gain promotion after several near misses.


Burton Ladies 2s  gained another 3 points after the victory again against Matlock 3's moving them to 3rd in the league. Burton were on the ball as soon the game started. Maintaining most of possession, Burton had many attempts on goal, with many saves by Matlocks good goalie.  Burton managed to sneak one past her, leaving the half time score at 1-0. Burton came out in the second half determined to get another goal. Although Maltock had upped their game, making Burton work harder. Burton continued to battle, scoring the second goal from a short corner. The final score was 2-0 with Goals from Shannon Dillon and Rhian Warriner.
Man of the match was Hatty Shenton for her efforts as holding centre midfield.

 

Burton Ladies 3s took on Ashbourne 2s in the first home game after Christmas, missing 2 of our there normal line up, the squad worked hard in the first half with some good hockey, testing Ashbourne but it was goalless at half time. Burton lapsed for 5 minutes in the second half and conceded 3 quick goals. Ashbourne pressed hard and burton found themselves defending for much of the second half including some good defending on the goal line. Burton heads picked back up and work rate increased again to slot in a well worked goal from 5 short passes in the D from a short corner, the goal from Sarah Louise.  Hatty Lester was man of the match.


Burton Ladies 4s lost 4-1 to Findern 2s, the first half was going well with Burton having plenty of possession and moving forward as well as defending well. There was a long stoppage mid-way through the first half when an opposition player suffered a nasty fall banging her head. A penalty corner had been awarded, from the restart  Findern scored their first goal. Findern then scored another 2 goals from penalty corners but didn’t really threaten in open play. Going into half time 3-0 down, Burton knew they had to step up which  every single one did.  Burton’s goal came from a ball from the right wing across the D and tapped in at the far post by Kate Lichfield. Burton had a penalty corner and were unlucky when a straight strike just went wide. Then Finden got another goal to wrap up the win.
