November saw the UBMHC 1st team rise from 9th to 6th place in the west conference, after starting the month with a couple of unlucky results that could’ve gone either way. The last two games this side of Christmas brought two very important wins against Isca and Fareham to secure us 6th spot on 12 points going into the break. Indisputably a strong effort from a newly promoted side.
This month’s BUCS results were a mixed bag. After starting the month with a good performance away from home, narrowly losing out against Exeter 2-1, a gritty 1-1 draw with Brookes was followed by a good 4-2 win against bottom of the league Cardiff Met. Our final game, a clash for second place against Bath away saw us dominate possession but fail to convert enough chances resulting in a 2-1 loss and third place for the 1s.
Special mention to fresher Kit Nebbett who stepped up brilliantly as our BUCS keeper. Honourable mentions must also go to Rufus McNaught-Barrington as top goal scorer in Conference West.
