And just like that we’re half way through the season!

Update from Bradley Stoke Town FC by Adam Townsend

Bradley Stoke Town FC First team have started strongly in the Premier Combination division 1 and go into the Christmas period in second place. The good start also included a cup win against Highridge United who play in the Premier Division as well as a stunning comeback from 3-0 down against local rivals Winterbourne United.

The first team continue to play at Patchway Community College on the artificial grass which has meant they’ve played a couple more games than the teams around them. So far they have registered three wins, three draws and two losses in their first eight games of the season. 

The games continue to come thick and fast in the New Year with four of the next five matches being played away before the final three being played at home.

The Reserves have had a poor start to the season but are encouraged by a good cup run. Currently they sit in eight place in Bristol & District division two after just two wins and one draw from their first nine games. The cup run has seen plenty of goals including a 4-1, a 7-1 and a 6-3 win seeing them through to the quarter-finals. 

Manager George Haskins has had to deal with a number of changes to his squad and is hoping that the second half of the season will grant him a more settled side.

The A team have also had a difficult start to life in Bristol & District Division Three and find themselves second from bottom. They do however have a number of games in hand to pull back some league positions. Majority of the remaining games are to be played at the Jubilee Centre. Like the Reserves, the A team also look forward to a cup quarter final in the New Year. 

Manager Chris Evans is hoping his team can have a strong end to the season after a season where a number of games have fallen victim to the weather. 

The newly formed B Team are enjoying life in Bristol & District Division Five, currently sitting mid table in a congested division which has only six points between third and tenth place.The B team have a number of games remaining to be played at the Jubilee Centre where hopefully the home advantage can help push them up the table and seek a first season promotion.

BSTFC continue to run a fully licenced bar on Saturday afternoons at the Jubilee centre from 4pm onwards where you can warm up, watch the football league results come in and share the afternoons experiences.
