The Eagles suffered a 0-3 home defeat against Mickleover as the 22/23 season comes to an end. Goals from Elliott Reeves and Oliver Greaves ensured Mickleover won the points.

The Eagles were defeated in the final game of the season as Mickleover ran out 0-3 winners. Goals from Oliver Greaves and a double from Elliott Reeves secured the win for Sports.

The game got off to a cagey start as both sides struggled for chances. Mickleover had a few pot-shots here and there but overall, nothing much of note.

Elliot Duffy was called into action a few times as the occasional Sports shot threatened his goal. But he dealt with it and pulled out some great saves.

Mickleover soon took the lead with ten minutes go until half time. This came from a ball on the left-hand side, and it found substitute Oliver Greaves who scored with his first touch of the game. This was it for the first half as Sports went in ahead.

It was soon two for Mickleover as they got a second after fifty-four minutes. A ball was whipped in from the left and Elliott Reeves rose highest and despite Duffy getting a good hand on it, the ball found the back of the net.

The next half hour or so was a quiet one as the game fizzled out. Mickleover were dominating possession and looking comfortable with the win.
In the final minute of the game, Sports got a third to well and truly finish the game off. A ball was threaded through to Elliott Reeves who slotted the ball home with the final kick of the game to make it 0-3.

The end of the season couldn’t have come quicker enough for Bedford as a serious rebuild is necessary. A huge thank you for all your support this season and we will see you in August.
