They think it's all over...

Boots were dusted off and limbs given a good stretch as the 14s graced the turf for the first time in 3 weeks in Wincanton on Saturday.

U12s Chew Test

In a rare evening encounter, the 12s faced Chew Valley in a training match at Keynsham on Thursday night.  The Chew side featured many BWB players so it was a useful game to exercise some of the recent targets agreed at training.

 Two periods of 7-a-side and 9-a-side were played in which even Bugsy managed to get on the scoreline!  The boys listened well and adhered to the various challenges set with enthusiasm and clinical execution.  

Zak gives away a few secrets

Bristol City FC centre-back Zak Vyner came to the position specific training on Tuesday night to offer the Smurfs some tips on how to play in the wide defedner role.

Zak played for Bath Schools as an under 10 and 11 almost 7 years ago and still lives in the Bath area.  Zak's brother Joe also played for the District team and is now enjoying a sports scholarship at an American University.

Chris Green Joins the Smurfs for an evening

Author and media consultant Chris Green visited us in Bath last night to answer questions from parents and players about his experiences researching the game at all levels.

Chris spoke for almost two hours giving his thoughts on some of the issues within the game, and encouraged parents to take a broad view when making decisions regarding football and their sons.  Chris' passion on the subject was clear, as was the views expressed by mums and dads attending.

Jury out

Match report from Lewis Bahadur against Torbay.

Having been up half the night watching children in need some of the mighty smurfs were not their usual bright eyed and bushy tailed selves. However, after a warm up and armed with a set of instructions from the gaffer they hit the ground running!

Every Boy's Dream

Chris Green is visiting the BWBs and their parents on Monday 17th November.  If you would like to take part in the special evening in Bath then please let us know on info@bwb03.com as soon as possible.

Hausaufgaben

This week we will be using the following video for discussion stimulus.  Each age group will be using different parts of the video, but it is worth having a look at it all and thinking about the tasks.

Forgot to get rid of sound so ignore the commentary!

 

13s action against N Somerset

With the luxury of a good surface in wet conditions, the spectators were warmed by an entertaining 80 minutes of drsama as the two under 13 district sides showed the benefits of positive training and enthusiasm.

The game was close throughout despite the home side scoring more, and what was pleasing was the effectiveness of numerpous players who changed positions sometimes twice during the game.
