Burton Hockey Ladies 1s had an unexciting 0-0 draw vs Solihull Blossomfield but displayed some good hockey against a very experience side who finished 2nd in the league last season. Burton had more chances, both Amy Palmer and Lucy Pendleton were very close to finding the net and Megan Bignell made a crucial save to keep Burton in it in the second half. Man of the match went to Abi Lester.

 

Burton ladies 2s faced Derby 3s and ­a­­fter a slow start to the game, Burton found their footing in the game with some good passing. Derby were quick on the attacks, but were soon stopped by the defence. Burton continued the simple passes, leading to Shannon Dillon slotting the ball in the goal. Burton continued to pressure Derby but couldn't find the back of the net, so just a goal lead at half time.

 

Burton stepped up in the second half, aiming to keep possession. This soon paid off as a well-timed ball was passed through to Hannah Tjon Soei Len, who won a one on one against the keeper, to go 2-0 up. Derby kept pushing and had some attacks which were stopped on the line. Burton kept working hard and from a quick long corner a first time strike from Tjon Soei Len finished off the game for a 3-0 win.  Man of the match was tied between Micky Shaw, Alex Dolman, Alice Hickman, Olivia Dale and Chloe Logan. Highlighting a good team performance off everyone

 

Burton Ladies 3’s faced Ilkeston 2’s away and started the game off well, trying to press towards on their goal, there was lots of movement from the Inners, right up to the Forwards. They fought hard in the D and were rewarded with a Short Corner, unfortunately they were unable to convert. They tried to test the defence but they didn’t allow them through, so it was goalless at half time

 

Burton had a good second half and were rewarded with a goal, when a long ball was passed in from Michelle to Leanne Docksey who managed to score. Every single player played really well, in a good team effort.

 

Burton Hockey Men’s 1s played away at Coalville after a cold windy and wet warm up, Burton started slow and conceded an early goal to Coalville. Burton then put into practice routines from the training ground and won a short corner. Mark Northcott took a new role as injector, Mark Ashton-Blanksby stopped and Liam Goode slotted home. Burton continued to work hard and scored a second goal soon after a pass from the baseline from Ben Elson to Jamie Jenkins who scored his first of the season. Coalville returned straight away by scoring a short corner ,to go to half time at 2 all.

 

Burton gathered their thoughts as they needed to step up their game. Jamie Cooper supplied Jenkins for another goal soon after half time giving Burton the lead.

Harry Cains played a searching ball down to Jenkins who then used his burning pace to get into the D and win a short. Goode stepped up and scored his second drag flick of the day. Burton continued to dominate the second half as Ashley Harris and Cooper broke free and Cooper supplied Jenkins for him to score this 3rd.

Burton Men 2nds 4 v Rugby 3rds 2. Burton men’s 2nd team were at home this week with a much changed squad from last weeks defeat at Warwick.

 

The first half was a tight affair with the best chances falling to Burton with quick passing down the right side from Kieran Whetton causing problem for Rugby with the pace of the ball finding Ike Zieliński-Raynor and Dan Tyler on a number of occasions only to be denied goals from great keeping and last ditch tackles. The first half ended 0-0.

 

The second half started with Rugby pushing high and some great defending from Miles Smurthwaite and Graeme Hamblen keeping them at bay. From a loose ball Burton found themselves a goal down. This seemed to kick start the Burton forwards who responded with 3 quick goals (2 from Jack Newman and 1 from Ashley Wheldon). Burton conceded another to make it 3-2, by now Ed Clamp was pulling the strings in midfield but Burton were making hard work of running the clock down by continually giving the ball away. To settle the nerves Newman scored his 3rd with a few minutes to go. The game ended 4-2 to Burton for another good team performance but still some room to improve.

 

Burton man of the match was Tom Shenton who gave up his own game to umpire, a great example of a true clubman.

 

 Burton Men's 3s met on a dreary, damp morning for a trip to Buxton. With the new league structure Burton were pitted against the Buxton 1st team. Burton started well and held strong in defence  even though it was all in their half to begin with. Burton welcomed some new faces in Mark Bignell and Ryan Duff who took on a slightly unfamiliar role in midfield. The pressure eventually took hold and Buxton scored, then 3 more to make it 4-0 at half time. Determined to take something from this game the captain rallied his troops and they set out with their heads high. Burton upped the ball pace and stopped passing to Buxton so much and won the 2nd half 2-1 with goals for Kevin Stanyon and Duff, to make the final score 5-2 .

Burton Hockey Ladies 1s took on Towcester in their first game in the new league after gaining promotion last season. Burton expected a faster pace and prepared themselves to put in some hard work. From the first whistle it was clear that neither team would dominate the game fully but Burton managed to stay slightly on top for the first 15 minutes ending up 1-0 up after a short corner routine gone wrong ended up in the goal, from Amy Palmer. The game got a bit scrappier after this with Towcester upping the pressure but a break from Sophie Carlton-Greaves late in the first half saw us outnumber the defence and Elizabeth Snelling put Burton 2-0 up with a diving finish. The second half saw chances from both sides and Megan Bignell earned her clean sheet after closing down a 1 on 1 situation and the final score was 2-0. Lots of hard work from the squad this week and great start to a new league! Man of the match was Liz Snelling for her work upfront and commitment to score our second goal.

Burton Hockey Ladies 4s got off to a great start in the league at Staveley winning 6-0 with only 9 players. Burton started off the stronger team and created chances from the start. Nadia Waller opened the scoring with a reverse stick strike, before Jane Thomas added a second, beating the goalkeeper to the ball. With more space on the field, some great balls were played through from the back, and Walker added another 2 goals, the first of which the ball fell to her in front of goal and she struck a powerful shot high giving the keeper no chance. After half time Burton carried on putting the pressure on. The fourth goal was scored by Thomas after some unselfish play to set the goal up. Ffion rounded off the goals right near the end. Steph Thandi worked the midfield all afternoon, breaking down Staveley’s play and stopping them getting through, and Holly Davis played well at right back, keeping possession and playing some nice passes. Natalie Walker started at the back and encouraged us all forward before having a run out up front for the second half. All in all it was a great result, achieved because of teamwork, hard work and unselfish play.

 

 

 

Burton Hockey Men’s 1s played Streetly 1st XI at the Ellis having  put themselves under pressure after having a poor preseason so this first league game of the year was huge.

 

Burton started off the game quickly and sharply and took the lead in the 10th minute. Jamie Jenkins hitting the baseline and slipping the ball to Mark Northcott to fire home Burtons first goal. Streetly gathered themselves quickly and got a goal back in the matter of seconds. The game then was even for a few moments as both teams battled hard.

Streetly then fought back and scored another 3 goals taking them into half time 4-2 up.

 

Second half began after a positive team talk from Burton. The game was even with burton having most if not all the possession. With Andrew Locker advancing down the left, sweeping past one defender then another waltzing into the D for then to fire home into the bottom right corner. Burton were on top with Streetly battling to stay in the game. Cooper and Goode rallying the troops with an eye on a point. As the half went on Burton had more and more possession. Then all of a sudden burton broke forward with Ben Elson. Cooper and Goode before the ball fell to Goode on the top of the D to slot home the equaliser. The game was close as both teams earned late short corners which were both kept out and after a great game of hockey both teams come out with a point after finishing 4-4. Very positive start to the season with promising steps ahead.

 

 

 

Burton Hockey Men’s 2s took the 50 mile trip down to Warwick to start their league campaign. Things didn’t start well when a accident in the town caused a delayed start and Burton having to start with 9 players against the Warwick 15 man squad.
From the start Burton were under pressure from a high press and within the first few minutes found themselves 1-0 down after being overrun at the back. 15 minutes into the first half the additional 2 Burton players arrived and had an instant impact with a great passing move resulting in a equaliser for Burton being scored by Neil Massey. For the rest of the first half the game was even with both sides having chances and some great saves from keeper, Jack Smith, keeping the score at 1-1.
The second half started well with Burton’s quick forward line getting in behind the Warwick defence and being found down the right with hard hit passes and aerials. With 10 minutes to go the umpires sent off two Burton plavers, a now tired Burton team with only 9 and quickly conceded a short corner goal. Within seconds of Burton getting back to 11 players they found themselves 3-1 down with the lack of numbers and the heat taking its toll. In the final minutes of the game Burton scored, an insightful cross field ball from Kieran Whetton found
Harrison Kemp who first time pass found Massy who ran to the byline slotting the ball back for Ike Zieliński-Raynor  to finish. The last few minutes saw the whole Burton team in the Warwick 25 looking for the equalisers that sadly didn’t come.

 

A fantastic team performance with the only difference on a very hot day 15 players against 11. Man of the match was Ben Wells

 

 

 

Burton Hockeys Mens 3s started their league games against Finchfield 3s and it was a tentative start. The ball pace wasn't quite up to speed and ther passes a little inaccurate. Finchfield took advantage and took an early lead when a defenders pass found an opposition midfielder who released two forwards who were only facing the goalkeeper and passed it around him into a empty net. However Burton did not let their heads drop and played well in patches but never created any chances. Injured captain Ben Meir had his say at half time and Burton knew what they needed to do in the second half and reacted and stepped up a notch or two and Tom Gibbs picked the ball up and drove into the D his fist shot was saved by the keeper but Gibbs picked up to rebound to guide the ball home. Man of the match was keeper Russell Davenport for two 1 on 1 saves that Burton in the game. Injuries to Owen Walters and Simon Saccaggi were a downer and the team hope for their speedy recovery. The game finished in a 1 all draw.

 

 

 

 

 

Burtons Mens 4s found Boots to hot to handle and went down 5 2. Burton didn't start well and went 0-1 down in the first couple of minutes. They then picked up the pace a bit and the hockey started to flow, Tom Dean was strong in midfield and linked up well with Joshua Bullock, David Sneydy, and Dan Horsey-Elson who got stronger throughout the game but Boots got a second before the break. The second half was the better half with 2 goals being scored, Ian Brown who drilled home a penalty corner and from Tom Dean. However Boots managed to still slot 3 more before the end to win 5 2

 

A busy day for Burton Hockey club as the teams all looked for results in their final friendlies before the league starts next week.
 
Burton Hockey Ladies 1s fought hard to get a 3-2 win over Lichfield 2s. Burton started the better team, even with some regulars missing. The first goal came quite soon into the game after a top D strike from Amy Palmer slotted right into the bottom corner. Unfortunately soon after they ended up another player down when Fran Lord took a ball to the eye and went  to A&E. After the injury break in play Burton struggled to regain our composure and keep possession. This resulted in a turnover of play close to our 25 and Lichfield levelled the score for 1 all at half time. Burton came out fighting second half and super sub Jane Palmer got us a 2nd goal but Lichfield managed to sneak a short corner in not long after. Amy Palmer finally rounded off the scoring when a loose ball fell to her in the D and she made no mistake getting it in the back of the net. Man of the match went to Amy Palmer


Burton Hockey Ladies 2s wnet down 2 0 to Beeston 3s. Burton started well in the game, applying plenty of pressure on Beeston's defence. From this Burton had a few opportunities but couldn't find a way past their goal keeper. Beeston kept Burton on their toes for the half, using their speed when in possession ad they scored goal just before half time. 

In the second half Burton continued the positive play, trying to find a way of breaking down Beeston's defence. They used a series of transers throughout the half, keeping hold of possession. From this they gained a few chances but were unable to convert into goals. Beeston kept up the hard work and scored another goal before the final whistle winning 2 0.

Man of the match went to Hatty Shenton for her efforts throughout the game. 

Burton ladies 4’s lost 4-2 after taking a long journey away against Leicester 5’s. Burton put on a strong front with a solid defensive playing by Kayleigh Bignell and Zoe Ridley. One goal was conceded in the first half and one scored by Izzie Ridley after a great effort on goal and a final finish.
Going into the second half 1-1 The team pressed hard but conceded another goal. Burton then straight back onto them scoring another from a short corner after a lovely injection from Izzie Ridley and a straight strike from Kirsten Dolman. Burton battled hard holding the opposition off and having some more lovely runs down the pitch from the forwards and some goal stopping clearances from Gianni Di Frari, but unfortunately conceded another goal later on in the game.
Overall it was a great team effort and a promising start to the season for the ladies 4’s.

Burton Men’s 1s had a tough battle against Boots 2’s resulting in a 2 all draw. Burton started slow and soaked up the pressure but were struggling to get out from the back. As the half progressed Burton started to get hold of the game winning a few short corners which they struggled to put away and it was goalless at halftime.

Second half began after stern words from coach Jamie Cooper. Burton pushed high early on and won the ball back in the oppositions 25 and Liam Goode slotted one home. Burton then realxed and allowed a sloppy goal to fall in the back of their net. Burton then worked another short corner and a drag flick from Goode was saved but fell to Andrew Locker who slotted it into the back of the net. Burton then seemed in the ascendency and were increasing their number of shots but  the opposition hit  on the counter attack, spooned their shot, hit the post and then they followed it in for 2-2. On the final whistle Burton received a short corner which Mark Northcott tried to fire home but the keeper pulled off a good save to deflect the ball on to the cross bar and Boots cleared the ball for a draw.

Burton Mens 2s were 2 1 winners against Solihull Blossomfield with goals from Harrison Kemp and Mark Ashton-Blanksby.

Burton Mens 3s travelled away for  a final friendly before the league starts next week facing a Wendesbury 1st team. A confident start which saw Burton soaking up early pressure from the home side. Kevin Stanyon and Tim Glover were solid as a rock with support from holding midfielder Dave Watkins. This solid foundation gave time and space to use the width which allowed Owen Walters and Harry Clarke to start putting pressure on the opposition by driving down the wings. A fair few superb saves from our keeper Russell Jurgen Davenport kept us in the game and allowed us to concentrate on our own attacks. Goals for Anthony Kemp Stephen Goodfellow and Tom Dean gave the team a 3 2 win meaning they go into the league with 3 wins under their belt. A composed performance from Tom sentence and a welcome return to Ian Brown topped off a great performance.

Burton Mens 5s took on Lichfield 6s and came away 3 2 winners. The game soon showed this was going to be a close match between skilful and mobile young attackers on both sides against experienced defences. Burton started to create chances but were guilty of not putting them away. Lichfield were very dangerous on the counter and keeper, Mark Bignall did well to make two interventions to keep the scores level. Finally Burton got its cutting edge, good build up down the left found Dan Horsey-Elson 5 yards out he squared to Andrew Woolley who drew the keeper and unselfishly passed back to Horsey-Elson who slotted the ball home. Burton switched off and Lichfield's mobile attackers equalised for a goal each at half time. Burtons talk at half time was to use the width and this soon paid off as Burton retook the lead through Will Fox.     . Lichfield were dangerous on the counter and Craig and Carl Asker were doing well to contain the Lichfield wingers. A third goal was required and James Robins picked up the ball outside the D and drove in, picked his spot and slammed the ball home. Two goals up, Burtons discipline went and they were guilty of not getting players back as Lichfield got their second goal. Lesson learned, Burton tightened up for the last 15 minutes bringing on Graham Lamb in defence for his 40th season in red and green and held on for the win.
