Bretforton got what they deserved this weekend putting in a lacklustre performance against lowly Cirencester.

In a game of few positives for the home side, Bret took the lead when Terri Brown simply outpaced the Ciren defence & placed a brilliant ball across the D to find Sarah Hall who sweetly swept the ball between the 'keepers legs to put them one nil up.

Although having beaten Ciren 6 nil in the away fixture it was a very different side that showed up today - a team that are fighting for their Prem 2 survival.  Bret were guilty of complacency and Ciren cranked up the pressure, the home side did well to defend their creaky one nil lead going into the break.

Ciren raced out of the blocks in the second half & got on the scoresheet with a rather flukey goal. This fired Bret up and it was their midfield dynamo, Lisa Workman, who collected the ball at the top of the D and placed a perfect pass to Julie Hall who finished the move by pushing the ball into the back of the net.

Bret again took their foot off the gas and Ciren responded almost immediately - no fluke this time - a really well taken goal saw them equalise for a second time.

Ciren did have chances to win the game but it was Bret who were left to rue their missed chances in a game they really should have won.  More anticipation and aggression in the D would have seen all three points stay in the Vale although the draw sees them stay in second spot in the league.

Despite this result, Bret have had an absolutely brilliant season thus far & shouldn’t be too down about this game.

With thanks to John Mould for umpiring in difficult conditions and the faithful Bret supporters who braved the weather - thank you all.
