Burton Hockey Ladies 1s returned to winning ways with a 4-0 victory away at 4th place Telford. Burton started on the front foot making use of the transfer and finding areas of the pitch with the most space. They created countless chances, regularly calling the Telford keeper into action and forced her to make some good saves. Finally Nicola Taylor broke our deadlock by slotting one nicely in the bottom corner. The rest of the first half played out much of the same, with the opposition goalkeeper  denying Burton many more times. After a positive team talk, the squad came out ready for a competitive half and hoped to extend our lead. After 10 minutes Taylor doubled then tally with a powerful straight strike from a short corner and shortly after keeper, Megan Bignell made a high glove save to keep her clean sheet. Telford had little more to offer, but made a last attempt to squeeze up the pitch. This only gave the forwards more space behind the line to work in, Sophie Carlton-Greaves and Lucy Pendleton leading to pick up some  balls coming through from midfield and passing them onto our high forward. This created a 1 v 1 opportunity with the keeper that Nicola finished with ease to complete her first hat trick of the season. Hannah TSL rounded off the scoring with a rocket of a strike when a ball fell loose in the D following a broken down short corner routine. Man of the match this week went to Harriet Buxton who had a stormer in the backline , highlighting just how valuable versatility can be. This places the team second in the league and next week they are home at 10.00 to Olton & West Warwick 2s who are league leaders with a 100% record after 7 games.
 

Burotn Hockey Ladies 2s took a trip to a sunny but breezy Ashbourne. Burton started off on the front foot, showing great potential in Ashbourne's D. With some good balls from the half backs, the ball found it's way into the D for Felicity Norcross to finish to take the lead. Burton kept the ball rolling, hitting the base line with the ball being played into the D. Ashbourne began to find their foot in the game, finding themselves in the Burton D, but play was soon broken down. Burton soon found themselves on the attack, but struggled to find the goal before half time.

After a positive half time talk, Burton sprung back into action, making Ashbourne work hard. Both teams continued to push hard, and after many short corners, Burton finally found the back of the net with a  finish from Shannon Dillon. Burton kept pressing Ashbourne's goal, but no more goals were to be scored and they took the 2 0 win to stay 3rd in the league.

Man of the match was  Ffion Church  for her efforts up front.

Disappointing day for Burton Ladies 3s who lost 3 2 to Belper 4s. Belper went two up and then Burton fought back with goals from Micky Shaw & Michelle Cleaver. With the game coming to an end a fortunate short corner for Belper saw them score in the last seconds of the match. Burton remain  4th in the league

Burton Hockey  ladies 4’s travelled to Derby to play a very experienced Phoenix side with Burton having only a 10 player squad. They started off strong, holding their positions having a few attacking chances but Phoenix managed to push through quickly on the turn around with a strong strike giving keeper, Eleanor Smedley no chance to save the ball. Despite being 1-0 down they  kept thier heads up keeping formation up until half time.

Going in strong in the second half they continued to push on the attacking front as Phoenix we’re doing the same, beating Burton on experience. Eventually they scored another 2 goals to take a 3-0 lead. However this didn’t stop Yasmin Ambler from rallying the team and pushing everyone up to get a goal for the team towards the end of the match and keeping Burton attacking right up until the final whistle.

While Burton were disappointed to lose their unbeaten record the still lead the league.

A good team performance from the Burton Hockey U14 Girls who travelled to West Bridgeford, Notts for their 2nd round of England Hockey Tier 3 competion.. The girls hard work and team play meant they won all three of thier games beating West Bridgeford 5 0, Ashby 5 0 and Chesterfield 6 2.
This developing team produced some excellent hockey. With Yasmin Ambler, Paige Tipper, Megan Thomas, Izzy Ridley and Clara Norcross defending well, building from the back, taking the ball into midfield, creating attacking opportunities, which gave Grace Spendlove chance to cause havoc for the opposition with creative stick skills. Megan Johnson and Katie Horsey-Elson kept the oppositions defence busy with their movement up front. Burton keeper Freya Boldy making crucial saves preventing any chance of a comeback from the opposition. 

 

Burton Hockey Mens 1s had a disappointing 4 0 defeat at home to Chesterfield. After last weeks miracle of nearly winning after being 3 down with 5 minutes to go, it was back to earth with a bump. Chesterfield took an early lead and then Burton started to show good ball skills as they retained possession and tried to work an opening. A misplaced pass in midfield and Chesterfield showed no mercy scoring a second. Again Burton worked the ball well and forced some short corners one just missing the goal and another saved by the keeper. Then with the last hit of the half Chesterfield got a third. The spectators were hoping for another great comeback but it was Chesterfield who controlled the second half restricting Burton to some hopeful aerials that Chesterfield dealt with well. Burton had one more short well saved by the keeper but it was Jack Smith the busier keeper and he made several saves to keep Burton in the game. Finally another poor defensive pass set Chesterfield up for a fourth in the last minute. 

 

Tough game for Burton Mens 2s against Loughbrough Students 3s and they went down 3 2, with goals from Neil Massey and Dan Tyler.


 

Burton men's 3s were back Buxton to play there 2s. The game started with a dominant display and instantly Buxton were on the back foot. A few chances went by with no end result until new boy Elliot Bishton found himself in the right spot to slot home. The dominance continued but Burton just couldn't seem to extend the lead. Buxton started to enjoy a few breakaways from Burotn's press, luckily keeper, Mark Bignell was there to save there blushes. Half time and Skipper Ben Meir knew one wasn't enough so roused his forwards to keep pushing for the next goal. Toby Ganley listened and duly came up with a stunning run over half the pitch, turned the defender inside out and hit a stunning reverse strike. Unfortunately it was going a couple of inches wide, fortunately Ike Raynor was on the post for a superb deflection. The Buxton keeper was having an awesome game and continued to make save after save. Then Ganley decided he needed a goal to make sure of our result which made it 3-0 and Burton closed out the game. With new goal scorers and a growing range of short corner routines, this team is looking to climb the table from their 5th place.

Burton Mens 4s had a 7 0 win against Coalville 5s. It was a welcome back from injury for Ian Brown and he showed he is still deadly at short corners as he hammered in a powerful shot. Antony Kemp got a hat trick and it was two each for Brown and Glyn Holland and the team move to 5th.

Burton 5s started off dominating possession against West Bridgeford 9s with Alex Farmer a tricky threat for Burton. Wasteful in front of goal and then guilty of midfield players not tracking back it was West Bridgeford who scored first. Burton regained there composure and won a short corner, Frank Franklin injected to Garrick Dillon who drew the defender and slipped the ball left to Andy Ball who smashed in the equaliser. Now firing on all cylinders more goals came from Farmer, Franklin and veteran Steve Morrison while West Bridgeford got one back. A good 4 2 win for the 5s as they moved to 4th in the league.

 

Burton U16’s arrived at the Ellis to a surprisingly sunny morning to face Derby Ramgaria. Straight from the start Burton put the pressure on causing Ramgarhia to make mistakes allowing Burton to set a high press. This lead to Alex farmer slapping in an early goal.  Strong defence in the middle and back line didn’t allow opposition players through despite some  good balls and the high aerials Ramgarhia returned back.. Coach Vijay Trivedy called for substitutions allowing new players on their debut, Tom Church and Dom Sturman, onto the pitch. Sturman dribbled into the D along the base line allowing Church to slip a ball onto the backboard for 2-0. Looking to extend our lead even further, Charlie Mafham dribbled into the D through multiple players and pulled off a shot which sank into the net.  The half time whistle blew with Burton in a good mood 3 0 up. After a positive talk from the coach they set back out to score more. In the second half, another high press from the forwards, Alex Farmer, William Bickerton-Jones and Sturman meant Mafham could put in a slow, arching reverse into the net .. The majority of the second half was Burton smashing the Ramgarhia defence making them make mistakes allowing Burton to score more. Sturman scored again from a back post slap, Bickerton-Jones off a short corner deflection, Mafham with another top D hit, Sturman with another two goals from back-post tip ins and finally Luke Brewer with a high arching shot which sank in the net. Any break through in the defence lead to Jack Tandy in his new kit clearing out opposing players and making the Burton half of the pitch safe. However, in the final 10 minutes an aerial ball from the opposition lead to them scoring, when the final whistle went it was 10 1 to Burton.

 

Burton Hockey Ladies 1s had a tough physical encounter with Tamworth 1s and finished with a 1-1 draw continuing their unbeaten run. Man of the match Hannah Tjon Soei Len scored the Burton goal after a lovely string of passes starting from centre back and working their way up the pitch. Sadly Burton struggled to replicate this too many times and had to work hard defensively to keep Tamworth out and stay 1-0 up at half time. Burton upped the pace in the second half and had a number of chances but failed to convert. Tamworth then struck home with a rocket of a straight strike from a short corner that was won against the run of play. The rest of the second half was mainly in Burton’s control and although everyone was pushing for a second goal, it was not meant to be. The final whistle blew at 1-1 and the team a little deflated but have taken things from the match to focus on going forward.

After a good team talk, Burton were ready to increase the work rate. Burton started strongly, using the transfer multiple time to create the changes in goal. This paid off as most of the play stayed in Matlock's half of the pitch. With the help of balls across the D from Sophie Carlton-Greaves and Hannah Tjon Soei Len  Norcross managed to bag another three goals.

Burton Hockey Men 1s had the gruelling fixture of Sikh Union 1st team away at the weekend, played in glorious sunshine. 

Burton made a promising start until from a free hit,  the Sikh union  striker made a swift turn and slipped the ball in to the back of the net and caught Burton skipper, Liam Goode on his head in the follow through. Burton looked to regain possession and start again. The normal Burton way of hockey, of pass and move was in full flow, Mark Ashton-Blanksby managed to wiggle his way through 2 or 3 defenders before finding Ben Elson who found Jamie Jenkins on the back post to fire home to equalise. Burton won the ball back strongly through Tim Winter who found Matt Evans who won burton a short corner. The short corner was fired home top right by Goode after not long coming back on the pitch to take the lead. Burton continued to put the pressure on Sikh Union, the transfer was strong and plenty of options to hit the line. Burton used the aerial threat again to find Ben Elson 1 on 1 with the keeper, for then Elson to be taken out and gaining a penalty stroke which he riffled the ball top right to put burton 3-1 up at half time. 

After a positive team talk from Coach Jamie Cooper burton looked to carry on how they finished. Burton kept the ball for a while before the opposition hit us on the break and scored a deflection back post. The opposition pressed and pressed and after 5 mins they had slotted another 4 home to put them selves 6-3 in front. With only 5 minutes to go Burton lost a man to a green card. This roused the team and they pushed and pushed with only a few moments to spare and burton won a short corner. After Goode hitting the crossbar and putting one wide Mark Northcott stepped up. He slotted his first home and then scored another moments later. The score now 6-5. Burton sore the opportunity of a point, Andrew Locker hit the flank down the left, cut in and delivered an inch perfect ball to the penalty spot for Elson to deflect home to level the scores at 6 all. With seconds to spare northcott wriggled his way down the baseline and ended up flicking the ball over the keepers left shoulder and over the crossbar narrowly missing.

Burton Hockey Mens 3s men had a home fixture against Barton 2s with both teams having a strong line up. Barton took an early lead and from a short corner Rob Pilgrim piledrived an equalizer. The first half continued with a high intensity from both sides and Barton started to dominate and Burton were just holding on .. From a short corner  Tom Gibbs went in for a drag flick to put Burton in the lead. Half time and the captain roused the troops as 2-1 was not enough. The game got a bit scrappy and Barton scored putting their tails up. Another short corner was won and Pilgrim again finished well for his second. Then Harry Clarke having a rare run in midfield found himself in the right place and slotted in at the far post to seal a 4-2 win.  Pilgrim was Man of the Match
 
Burton 4s had an entertaining 3 all draw with West Bridgeford 7s. Two goals from David Sneyd and one from Glynn Ho.lland

Burton men’s 5ths were also playing a local derby against  Barton 4ths.

Barton started the game well putting Burton under early pressure but the solid back line of Craig Asker, Nick Shenton and Andy Ball held firm. The first half finished with a good opportunity to score but despite several attempts on goal the score remained 0-0.

After a formation change at half time to allow Burtons midfield to push up Burton started to create more chances but again drew blanks. As Burton pushed up the game became stretched and a number of fantastic saves by Gianni Di Frari in goal kept Burton in the game. A great solo effort by Alex Farmer was saved by the Barton keeper and Brandon Logan was testing the Barton midfield consistently.

With 15 minutes to go Barton scored from a well worked short corner, Burton responded immediately with an Andy Ball short corner. The game finished 1 all a fair reflection of the match with Craig Asker man of the match

Burton Hockey Men’s 1s travelled  to Coventry and north Warwick in the league.

On a cold and wet day in Coventry Burton took 12 men and wanted to prove themselves again after a good result the weekend before. Burton made a swift start by retaining the ball and creating and early opportunity which was hit just wide by Ashley Harris. Burton held onto the ball well and didn’t allow Coventry to get anywhere near the Burton goal. Andrew Locker advanced down the left and smashed one across the D, the ball flew through Ben Elson and hit the goal poaching Jamie Jenkins on the foot for it to fly over the crossbar. As the half went on it looked like it was going to go into half time 0-0. Burton transferred the ball round the back starting from  Locker and ended with Harry Cains at left back who marched to the edge of the D before whipping in a promising delivery for Mark Ashton-Blanksby to get a touch and deflect home for the lead.

After a swift half time team talk from Jamie Cooper burton looked to carry on the same as the first half. Coventry still couldn’t get anywhere near the ball and Burton threatened. The pressure finally broke through again as Cooper and Roshen broke through the midfield and supplied Matt Evans to score his first goal for the first team this season. . Burton looked to keep a clean sheet but unfortunately  a penalty stroke was awarded to Coventry which they slotted home. Burton finished the game 2-1 for another solid victory.

Man of the match was Harry Cains for a fine game and struggling with a hamstring strain in the last 15 mins of the game. 

Burton Mens 2s got a fine 2 1 win over Nottingham University 3s.

 Burton Mens 3s welcomed Old Wulfrians 2s.where a disjointed performance allowed the visitor to win 1 0. They won 10 short corners to Burtons none and they scored from their last one. Burton struggled to pass accurately and everything was a bit too slow and sloppy. Simon White played well as did James Crane  Mark Bignell made some solid saves to keep Burton in it and Will Fox continues to emerge as a star of the future. 

Burton Mens 4s picked up 3 points with a 3 0 win over Newark 3s with Anthony Kemp getting all three. 

Burton Men 5s went down 3 2 to Nottingham players 4ths with veterans Steve Morriosn and Frank Franklin scoring

 
Burton Hockey Ladies 1s kept their unbeaten run in the league with a 3-2 win over Kettering . They found themselves 1-0 down within 10 minutes when a Kettering short corner took multiple deflections on the way through and found it’s way into the net. Behind for the first time so far this season  reacted by winning a short corner and Amy Palm executed a low drag flick that defeated both keeper and post player. Burton then pushed for the remainder of the half which paid off when Hannah Tjon Soei Len used her fast pace to cover ground quickly, leaving their defenders behind and executed a shot from top D flawlessly, putting them 2-1 up on the half time whistle. In the second half Burton  flagged a  bit, allowing Kettering to get back into the game. They found an equaliser from a slick short corner routine, deflating Burton even further. Kettering began to dictate the game but appeared to lack the real desire to find the winning goal. However, lots of encouraging chat from players and supporters allowed Burton to continue pushing forwards. Some good passing work in the D allowed both Lucy Pendleton and Elizabeth Snelling to have attempts on goal, the keeper saving the first shot but failed to stop Snellings follow up


Burton ladies 2s faced Repton 2s, a strong competitor in the league. Repton started the game off strong, with Burton conceding early. Burton soon began to find their footing in the game, using the transfer often to remain in possession. This soon payed off as a ball was played to Hannah Tjon Soei Len who slotted it into the corner, bring Burton back into the game. Burton continued to control the first half, with Jane Palmer finding herself in the D against the keeper, slotting it into the corner. First half finishing 2-1.

Repton came out strong after half time, applying plenty of pressure on Burton's defence. Burton continued to battle but Repton managed to work a goal, bring the score level and In quick succession  found themselves in a possession, scoring making the score 3-2. Burton continued to battle hard but unfortunately couldn't find the equalizing goal, so lost  2-3.

Man of the match this week went to Megan Ridley for her outstanding performance in defence. 

Burton Ladies 3s travelled away to play Staveley 2 missing a number of the regular key players.
Burton created a number of chances throughout the game but it was Staveley who scored the only goal of the game to take all three points.
One of Burton’s best chances came in the first half when the ball came to Isabel Ridley on the penalty spot but unfortunately the Staveley keeper was quick to block the shot.
It is the second consecutive week that the Ladies have felt like they’ve played better hockey than the opposition but have come away with a loss so they’ll be hoping for a good result next Saturday when they face bottom of the table Findern.
Man of match was joint this week between Leanne Docksey and Anna Hill

Burotn Ladies 4s continued their unbeaten start to the league, drawing 1-1 with Ashbourne 3s. On a bitterly cold afternoon it was quite difficult to get our passes going and possession-wise it was fairly equal for the first 20 minutes with neither team threatening. 
The game came to life when Yasmin scored after taking the ball into the D and all the way through to score. We started the second half with the determination to push out ahead and score again and had a number of attacks but couldn’t find a goal either from open play or from penalty corners. Our ball distribution was good with Izzy R working hard up and down, and Emma playing some great passes through. Clara (playing her first game!) Anna, Lucy and Izzy also had passes into the D and arguably Jenny should have made more of them although she was fouled a lot. Megan had a great game upfront and wasn’t far off scoring and was a threat in the D all the time.
All in all, we were frustrated not to win, but the positives are that they now have high standards for themselves and they remain unbeaten for another week
