BAC 7 – Leominster 1 (26/09/15)


So the first league match of the 2015/2016 season was upon us and BAC welcomed Leominster to sunny Bristol.

We also welcomed Ceri to the game!!

BAC started well but  Leominster managed to break through and force a short corner, the defence had it under control or so we thought but Dave managed to get an unlucky touch to the ball which wrong footed Becky and we found ourselves 1-0 down early on. So as BAC always do we rolled our sleeves up and got back in to the game we some great passing, Sledger and Bish we doing great in the middle and Sledger broke free and set up Tinny who shot and scored  1-1. this was more like it and we then thought we had got another but Emma had a goal disallowed. however we did then get another as Sledger picked up the ball and kept running, with the forwards taking the defence away it opened up and Sledger went into the D shot and scored 2-1.

BAC attend the annual Beer Festival


BAC Ladies did themselves proud at the annual Stapleton Cricket Club beer festival.

This year the fancy dress theme was cricketers and much fun was had applying hockey techniques to the game of cricket whilst downing a pint or two!

We don’t think there are going to be any England call ups from this bunch!

BAC2 v Knowle1 2-1 (12/09/15)


A beautiful day for the first friendly of the season.

The team got a bit worried when Soph asked to put balls on the 15!!! (We knew there were new rules but no-one had heard about this one!)

It was a warm and sunny day in Bristol, perfect for a trip to the beach, so we packed our buckets and spade and we were off! However on arrival into Weston Super Mare (WSM) we were met with grey clouds and torrential rain!! It seemed the only players from the team getting any sunshine would be Chez and Bish, in sunny Florida.But the clouds soon parted, the umpires whistle blew and BAC were off for the first friendly of the pre season and captain Kingers (and Junior) were cheering us on and supporting from the sidelines whislt making ‘tactical’notes.
