2017 Review - First Team

The second round of our season review comes from the First Team


BUFC Season Review: The moments that made the season.


BEST MATCH: 2-1 away win against ETA Buffalo which kept our hopes of winning the league alive. To be 1-0 down and come back in the final 10 minutes was one to remember.


BEST GOAL: Johnny Black audacious half way goal in the final against St Albans Vukovar cannot be ignored. Straight off the second half kick off, the ball was rolled across and Johnny took one step and rifled it into the top corner, halting any hope of a second half comeback for Vukovar.


UNSUNG HERO: Assistant manager Tony, this man provided numerous laughs and would repeatedly express his dislike over the music tastes of all the lads. To this day no one knows what will burst Tony into song.


FUNNIEST MOMENT: The time Patty (our goalkeeper) was thrown the speaker in the dressing room pre game which he dropped, whilst Charlie was introducing our new striker to him.


BEST QUOTE: “Nothing stupid boys, don’t wanna start anything that could see an injury or a red card that puts you out of the next cup round”- Charlie Egan half time a talk. 48th minute, our assistant coach nutmegs an opposition player on the sideline that starts a 5 minute rumble between the Barnstoneworth bench and opposition.


LESSON LEARNT: You can be successful with kids!
