The BRFC Academy Under 16 squad were home to AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

They produced a much improved all round performance against a technically proficient Bournemouth side.

Both sides had periods of controlled possession which made for an excellent game to watch.

The Under 16 squad now have an away fixture at Cardiff City on Wednesday 21st October 2015.

This game will be quickly followed up by a trip to Newport County on Saturday October 24th.

The BRFC Academy Under 9 to Under 15 teams also had fixtures against Bournemouth last weekend.

Probably the outstanding  performance came from the ever improving Under 14 group.
