Brize Norton defeated for the first time this season

BNFC not at their best and suffer defeat to the hands of Kingham

BNFC come up against Kingham All Blacks for what was the 2nd time in just 3 weeks but this time Brize were the home team. Brize Norton lined up for their first home game of the season like this;


Abbott, Humm, Western, Puddle ( c )

White, Hook, Morrison, Parlsoe, Parker



Bradley, Gregor

Rob Hook made 3 changes to the starting line-up from last weeks draw v Chippy. Out went Farrugia, Morgan and Rooney (some would say he was missed), all of whom were unavailable. In came Morrison, Parker and Parsloe for their first games of the season. Welcome back to Bradley who made his return to the club after a short while away, he started the game from the bench.

1st half

Brize Norton were looking to continue with their free flowing football and trying to build attacks patiently from the back. As this is 2nd time we have played Kingham ALREADY 3 games in, they knew all about Brize's style of play, and from the start they pressed extremely high, marking all 4 defenders from Marshall's goal kicks. This was making our passing game extremely difficult but some good play on the left, the ball found its way to Parsloe with his back to goal just outside the area, he held off a defender brilliantly and laid to Jon White who found himself in acres of space just inside the area, he showed lots of composure and finished down low to goalkeepers left. 1-0 Brize Norton.

Mainly due to our expansive play at the back we were giving them a fair few opportunities but none they could take advantage of, until Brize found themselves attacking a free-kick: Kingham managed to get to free-kick first and head clear to their left winger who had pace to burn, no Brize player could keep up, he ran down the left and crossed it in for the Kingham striker to side foot it into the goal past a helpless Marshall. Nothing Brize could of done but be beaten by the pace of the counter attack. 1-1

The final 20 minutes of the half play was very scrappy for both sides, our 5 yard passes were not finding their men. We even resorted to playing it slightly more direct, this almost paid off as a long kick forward found Parker who controlled it well and hit a quick shot which beat keeper but went slightly wide.

2nd half

Brize couldn't get going in the 2nd half, a lot of players were getting frustrated as play wasn't going the way they wanted it to go, but that didn't stop us continuing to play that way. Parsloe was getting himself about the game, and he got booked for a late challenge. There after, he was getting kicked all over the park, and understandably wasn't happy. Seconds after getting taken out, Parsloe went on a little dribble, one heavy touch led to him stretching for the ball and going in late on Kingham defender, ref had a long word with him and gave him the benefit of the doubt. Rob decided not to risk going down to 10 and brought on Tomi Bradley for his first appearance of the season. Not long after off went Abbott, who was having a good game at right back, and on came Gregor.
Kingham now playing some good football and on the front foot, the ball was at the feet of their quick winger who took it past Gregor, crossed low and evaded the whole Brize defence to find a Kingham striker at the back post to finish easily. Good goal by Kingham. 2-1

More frustration; Jon White got himself booked and also injured and with no more subs Brize were now having to effectively play with 10 men but Jon being an official soldier he soldiered to help the team. Brize now had to throw everything at Kingham, Western moved into midfield, with Puddle, Humm and Gregor making 3 at the back. With lots of corners and free-kicks from wide positions, no one could get on the end of them, until a Pav free-kick was nodded down by a combination of Hook and a Kingham defender the ball found its way to Humm, all he had to do was get something on it and it would have been a goal, but no, he fluffed his lines and chance was gone, should have been the equaliser.

Into added time, Brize looked to counter on Kingham who were looking to hold the ball in the corner trying to waste time, Parker played a ball forward aiming for Humm who was beat to the ball and Kingham ran towards the goal with only a few Brize players to beat, who powerfully shot home, 3-1 Kingham which turned out to be last kick of the game.

Brize not at the races today, got frustrated by Kingham's high press and could not get to grips with their normal game.

Rob Hook had a tough choice to make on who was MOM, he eventually slumped for Jon White for his goal.

Lastly a little thanks to Kingham All Blacks. All top lads, good banter and great to see the whole squad staying behind after the game for a drink, for a good hour at least. Good luck for the rest of the season.

Lets hope next week is a better one...
