A difficult week for Bristol & West as we entered December. Lack of availability across the men's sides meant small squads and the cancellation of our 6s game. This is likely reflected in the results, as we struggled to put points on the board. In contrast, the women's squads were stacked with quality and posted another clean sweep of victories. Most impressively, our men's and women's 1st teams remain in the small group of teams to remain unbeaten after 9 games.
Keeper of the week
Laura Grand - POTM and a clean sheet - 27 points
Defender of the week
Megan Long - 1 goal, 1 assist and a clean sheet - 27 points
Midfielder of the week
Millie Aish - 2 goals, 1 assist and POTM - 27 points
Forward of the week
Tegan Callen - 1 goal, a clean sheet and POTM - 21 points
Well done to all 👏🏻 🏑
Men's 1st Team
University Of Bristol 2 [4-4] Bristol & West
1s drew 4-4 against Bristol Uni in the top of the table clash. A feisty game saw us surrender a 4-1 lead to share the points and match Bristol Uni at the top of the league table. Or so we thought! To the surprise of the team, when the league table was posted, we found ourselves 3 points clear with a 5-0 win due to the opposition fielding an ineligible player. With one game left before Christmas, our 1s have the opportunity to finish the first half of the season unbeaten.
Goals from Todd, Spacer, Tugs, Ed
MoM to Gareth - No holes in the Wall
DoD to Ed - Having a pregame pint
Thanks for all who came to support.

Bristol Bluebirds 1 [1-5] Bristol & West Jaspers 3
3s had their final match in the painful cold! Think all players in every team found it harder to breath yesterday but all still pushed through like champs. The only warmth came from the warm welcome towards having Shaz Queen back in goal 👑🥅
We started with a good white board sesh and hussled in the match - winning 5 - 1!
POTM : Millie 🙌
Defender : Olivia
Goals : Millie x2, Frankie x2, Anna
Assists : Millie, Alice x2, Lizzie, Dibbs
Everyone that has played in the 3s this season so far has been absolutely amazing and should be chuffed with their efforts and commitment!
Go have a wonderful Christmas all, look forward to what 2023 brings the club 😊🎉

Bristol & West 5 [2-5] Clifton Robinsons 7
5s had a right old battle against top of the table Robbie’s. Went 2-0 up and ended up losing 2-5!!
Scorers were Nathan and Steve Chan. Assists from Smeg and Toby
MOTM was Chris G
Defender Bonus to Chris G!!
DoD was Nathan mostly for falling over. Unbelievably Chris G was also heavily nominated for an appalling back pass leading to a goal. Shame he didn’t make the clean sweep ;)
Great game enjoyed by all.
