Three Bridges U21 3-5 Sittingbourne U21s

Bradley Peters hattrick for a much-improved U21s performance

Last game of a hard fought season brought about second in the league Sittingbourne. The start from Bridges was slightly nervy against high flying opposition and with the boys struggling to cope with the high tempo Sittingbourne hit us on the break from our own corner on the 9th minute as B. Schafer scored to make it 0-1. The boys battled on and applied themselves, our right hand post lived a charm for the 1st half as Sittingbourne hit the post on about 3 occasions but we were still in game.

The pressing trio unit of Bradley Peters, Dominic Toussaint and Michael Wilson, playing in his favoured position in the centre of the wide forwards, worked a treat. They put heavy pressure on Sittingbourne’s back line and their keeper who had probably been used to playing out at ease against many teams.

On the 25th Minute, Bradley Peters, whilst pressing, forced an error out of their back line to gain the ball and score to make it 1-1 against the run of play. This spurred the boys on to keep up the pressure and, although it was Sittingbourne with the dominant play, the boys dug in and again with the front three pressing, Bradley Peters capitalised to score his second goal on the 33rd minute to give us a 2-1 lead. Sittingbourne looked slightly ruffled for a few minutes but they bounced back forcing an error out of us on the transition on the 36th minute to make it 2-2.

The game was slightly end to end but in the dying seconds of the first half Sittingbourne's experienced forward managed to gain a penalty from us which was converted to make it 2-3 at half time.

Second half Sittingbourne started the stronger - I’m sure their manager had a few strong words for some his players.

8 minutes in and Bridges were caught on the hop as R. Brown ghosted past the right side of the defence to make 2-4. With tired legs Jimmy Degrace was replaced by Noe Vendrelles soon after to give us fresh legs and impetus at right back.

Credit to the boys they never once dropped their heads and continued play football with Michael Wilson creating opportunities at will feeding Toussaint and Peters ahead of him. The combative midfield trio of Ned Pierre, Ristel Benz Salomon and Tunde Amusa-Maja imposed themselves better as Sittingbourne reshuffled their shape to match our three in midfield. AJ came on for Ristel and continued the midfield dominance.

Sittingbourne who had now gone into game management mode was sitting deeper to stem the flow of our attacks. However, they managed grab another goal from a quick goal kick that allowed them to escape via the middle of the pitch and a couple of passes later J. Embery made 2-5 on the 82nd minute.

Rhys Smith came on shortly after to replace the tiring Tunde who had put in a good shift in midfield. The boys never once dropped their heads and were enjoying their football as they continued to press and attack. With this positive outlook they were rewarded when Bradley Peters was brought down in the box for a penalty. He got up to dust himself off before calmly converting the penalty to complete his hat trick right at the end of the game to make the score 3-5.

A great performance from all the boys showing great spirit never giving up and showing that there is a lot of potential still to be recognised.
