Yatton & Cleeve ‘B’ 0, Berrow 7

A ruthless first half from Berrow saw them demolish their hosts Saturday with Man of the Match Joe North grabbing a first half hat-trick of the highest quality.

The game started evenly with the hosts looking quite lively up top, but Berrow were equal to their advances as they welcomed back captain Tom Edwards and player assistant manager James Gass.

However it was one way traffic as North kicked off the rout, taking an Edwards long ball under control, turning his marker with a piece of sublime skill, out pacing him and slotting past the keeper.

It was 2, then 3 with that man North again finding the bottom corner of the net via the post with a classy finish, that was quickly followed up by the returning Ben Hemingway-Arnold, who ran North close for the man of the match tag, slotting home from close range.

North completed his hat-trick with a finish similar to the first, once again rolling his man and coolly putting the ball beyond the keeper.

Dan Guyatt got in on the act just before half time with a powerful drive from a tight angle to make it 5.

Second half saw a drop in intensity, however North grabbed his fourth when Chris Warner cleverly played him in from the edge of the box from a free kick and Sid Howe continued his impressive goal scoring form when grabbed the 7th with a low drive from outside the box.

Berrow had plenty of opportunities in the second half with North being denied by the home keeper and Will Puddy blazing over when the goal was gaping.

Another impressive performance from the young side, as they continue their 100% start to the season, with only the 1 goal conceded in their first 3 games. Next week they take on local rivals Burnham United B at Red Road.

Berrow Induct Honorary Life Presidents

To recognise and thank their efforts over the past years, Berrow inducted their first ‘honorary life presidents’.

Carol Dyer, Brian Hart and John Lock were all awarded these accolades to recognise the hundreds of hours that they have given to the club over the years that have formed the solid foundation and fundamentals that the club now stand on.

Carol Dyer, wife of former club founder Colin, gave up many of her Saturday afternoons to serve in the kiosk during matches as well as ensuring the teams all had clean kit on a Saturday, which at the peak of its powers, was 3 lots! Not to mention the countless meetings she attended and the jobs she undertook without us even knowing!

Brian Hart, former Berrow player and chairman, up until 5 years ago was out in all weathers, supporting the side, maintaining the grounds and preparing the pitch on a Saturday morning. All on his own in most cases.

John Lock, a key member in the birth of Berrow Juniors, the junior section of the club has seen many players transition into senior football over the last 28 years. John is huge supporter of football in the village and undoubtedly laid the ground for the clubs past successes.

A huge thank you to all of you from Berrow FC for everything you have done and continue to do!

WEBSITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Nobody likes change, but sometimes it has to happen. Our website reflected many of us in the team – amazing to look at, but old and creaking on the inside.

So, we’re getting new blood in. We will be keeping to the familiar look that was so popular, but inside it will reflect the younger squad members – dynamic, full of tricks, and even easier on the eye. You’re gonna love it.

We’ll be fully flying after the first weekend in October, but for this short period, please bear with us – our minions are working as hard as they can.
