Berkswell 1st XI (1) lost to Atherstone 1st XI (3)

Another frustrating display from Berkswell led to another loss away from home. The first half display piled pressure in the Atherstone half but the B’s went down, first to an excellent short corner and then with a second goal coming from a lucky deflection. To make matters worse Atherstone scored another goal just before the break leaving Berkswell with lots to do.

In the second half continued pressure lead to Darren Kirby converting a scrappy short corner reducing the deficit to 3-1. Despite continued forays into the opposition D and play being kept in the Atherstone half a vexed Berkswell side could not convert any of the chances.

Berkswell 2nd XI (3) beat Daventry 3rd XI (0)

A strong showing from the second team showed continuing strength and growth.

An excellent first half performance led to a 3-0 lead at half time with goals from Ben Mold, Mike Horsewill and Trevor Nunn. Berkswell then defended well against a renewed Daventry to keep the score 3-0 at the final whistle.
