Bardwell U14 go through to the 4th round of the County Cup.........
Bardwell travelled to Oxford Blackbirds today for the 3rd round of the Steve Simmonds Oxfordshire County Cup. Blackbirds battled hard from the off and maintained the pressure and work rate throughout. Bardwell's Charlie George Howlett was first on the score sheet in the first half and was unlucky to miss a 2nd just before half time when he went one on one with Blackbird's keeper and lifted it too high for it to just go over the crossbar.
The 2nd half was a similar hard fought battle against a determined Blackbirds team and Keelan Cronin was rewarded for his continued efforts when he ably assisted Alex Pestana in the 60th minute bringing the score 0-2 for Bardwell.
Bardwell's Player of the Match was awarded to Jo Nugent whose defensive and at times attacking efforts were without doubt worthy of special recognition.
Well done lads, a deserved win today for the team.
