Brentwood U16's hosted Thurrock at home in the first match of the season, after a switch from an away fixture.
Today's team included at least three new lads, who had never played with the team before, all of whom gelled well and put in good performances.
Brentwood started strongly, playing uphill for the first half, and maintained their dominance of the match for the first 20 or so minutes. Thurrock got into their rhythm towards the end of the first half and maintained this in the second, but Brentwood proved too strong overall.
Final score Brentwood 34 Thurrock 14
A good start to the new season.
