Bret struggled in this re-arranged away game to a really well organised Newent squad.

The Pink Ladies game plan fell apart when Newent scored fairly early on - the pressure was relentless on the visiting defenders in the first 35 minutes and Bret found themselves 4 – 0 down going into the break.

Given that Bret travelled with the bare squad of 11 players and were up against Newent with three subs on the bench, the effort that was put in by Bretforton was brilliant.

A much improved second half saw Bret battle harder, run harder and tackle harder – Newent were reduced to scoring just one more (sloppy) goal.

Bretforton did create a number of chances and also fought their way to getting a few short corners – unfortunately nothing came of these but they shouldn’t be too downhearted, this was always going to be a tough game and they didn’t disgrace themselves.  Player on the match was Heather Carr who managed to put the skids on many a Newent attack & was well deserved.

Another really tough game beckons next week – the girls are away to top of the table Team Bath Buccs who haven’t lost a game all season – what can possibly go wrong ??!!!
