Golden Hill Sonics enjoy sporting fun and friendship

February 27 2015

We have been enjoying ourselves on the pitch and off it in recent weeks. Our teams have managed to play lots of matches (despite Bristols sub-zero temperatures and frequent rainstorms!) and we had a great time recently on a club trip to support the Bristol Flyers in their push for the play-offs.

WE have been enjoying ourselves on the pitch and off it in recent weeks. Our teams have managed to play lots of matches (despite Bristols sub-zero temperatures and frequent rainstorms!) and we had a great time recently on a club trip to support the Bristol Flyers in their push for the play-offs.

Our under 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s have continued to enjoy a good mix of fun training sessions and friendlies against other local clubs – we have recently played Ashley Down, Bishop Road and Sefton Park.

Our older year groups have all started 2015 in great form – we pride ourselves on not overly focusing on results but it was interesting to note that our League teams (under 11s – under 18s) all won their matches on a recent weekend!

The under 11s have enjoyed some fantastic matches against St. Nicholas, Bath City and Longwell Green, playing some genuinely entertaining football. Our under 12s have also been in great form, winning 8 matches on the trot in the Mid Glos League.

Our under 13s and 14s are developing all the time, both in training sessions and in their Bristol Saturday Youth League fixtures – they have both enjoyed really competitive games against Bishopston recently.

The under 15s and 16s have both been in fine form in recent weeks, playing good football and showing impressive resilience – they have both moved up to 5th place in their respective Leagues.

Our under 18s continue to do us proud in their first season as they are currently leading the Bristol Central League after a run of positive results.

We are all looking forward to the remainder of the season before we hand Golden Hill back to the cricketers and are looking forward to supporting Bristol Academy against Frankfurt in their Champions League Quarter-Final on March 21.
