This is a general update from the BRFC Academy fixtures over the last fortnight.
On Wednesday 29th April 2015, the BRFC Academy Under 14 team travelled to play Cardiff City.
The game was an excellent test for our players against a strong Cardiff City side. The game was extremely entertaining and produced some good performances.
The BRFC goals were scored by Logan Roach from long distance, a Sam Hendy penalty and a well worked goal from Lucas Tomlinson.
On Wednesday 6th May 2015, the BRFC Academy Under 15 side played Gloucester City.
They managed to produce a very impressive performance in abysmal conditions. The game provided an intriguing test for the players against an opposition squad we normally do not encounter.
Pick of the BRFC goals were those from Harrison Chamberlain, Jordan Carey and Lucas Tomlinson.
Over the weekend of Saturday 9th to Sunday 10th May 2015, the Academy Under 9, 10, 11, 12 , 13, 14 and 15 squads played Swindon Town.
This was our last full set of competitive fixtures for the season. All games were tight and competitive.
The stand out performances of the weekend came from the Under 13 side where Luca Hoole scored a couple of goals and the Under 14 team where Sam Green scored a hat trick.
