March 15, 2016
Most BRFC Academy teams had fixtures against Cheltenham Town over the 12th/13th March 2016.
On Saturday 12th March a mixed Under 15 and Under 16 squad travelled to play against Plymouth Argyle.
The Plymouth Argyle side consisted of mainly Under 16 players who were strong and powerful.
It proved to be a good test for the Under 15 players who will have gained a great deal from the experience.
On Sunday 13th March the outstanding performance came from the BRFC Academy Under 15 squad.
They produced their best all round performance of the season against Cheltenham Town.
Their goals came from Lucas Tomlinson (2), Sam Green (2), Takayo Nembhard and Jordan Croad.
In these fixtures another fine performance came from the BRFC Academy Under 9 squad.
They produced a fine attacking display and some excellent attacking football.
They were particularly exciting to watch in one versus one situations.
Next weekend the Under 16 side are home to Swindon Town while the younger teams play Oxford United.
