Buntingford Cougars

Cougars U9s vs Wymondley Park, Saturday 26th September, Away

A trip to Hitchin for a late morning kick off in the final pre-season game and the spectators were treated to a performance full of good passing & movement. The team only had 7 until the last quarter (when Donohue made a cameo appearance) so hardly any rest at all!

There was excellent work from Brackenbury and Taylor in defence occasionally linking well with Tansley and Brown who worked hard in midfield to provide opportunity for Thoms and Ganney to chip in with goals up front.

Some encouraging signs with good passing and communication starting to develop and all of it rounded out with a quality goalkeeping performance from an injured Gibson. The Donohue late cameo resulted in a tidy finish at the far post too!

Well done all.

Buntingford Cougars

Cougars U9s vs Bishops Stortford, Saturday 26th September, Home

Tidy, Walker, Deane, Loxton, Plumb, Warren, Malyon, Donohue

Shorts weather at the Bury for the final pre-season friendly before the league resumes next weekend.

Really good showing from the team this morning - well organised from the back by Walker and Malyon with an interchangeable midfield of Warren, Deane, Tidy, Plumb and then Donohue and Loxton sharing the front line.

Tidy got the first goal with a threaded shot through a crowd before Loxton wowed the crowd with a 2 minute hatrick! The pick was a 20 yard free kick, top bins! Good spot by the sharp ref for the foul.

A second half goal came for Deane who won the ball in the box from a corner and his shot completed a double panna before nestling in the back of the net. Plumb got one after Deane and then Loxton combined bringing the ball out from their own box to the other end in seconds.

Warren got one as well with a crisp shot from the edge of the box, Loxton got a 4th from a Deane pass and there may have been one other but the match reporter was distracted by the supreme refereeing performance and lost track.

Well played Cougars!

Buntingford Cougars

Barry and Sharon who run The Bury are a huge part of the Buntingford community and a real reason behind the success of Buntingford Cougars.

With the announcement of new restrictions this week they are putting in further COVID secure arrangements but we would ask all in the community to continue to support them in really trying times for the Hospitality sector

- They will provide table service only for those who wish to sit inside. They are doing their upmost to provide socially distant tables both inside and outside.

- Take out drinks are still available as long as social distancing is adhered to, ie standing away from the bar and following floor signs.

- Face coverings now have to be worn when walking around in the clubhouse unless you are seated at a table.

- They will also have to restrict the amount of people on the balcony during matches by taping standing space.

The Bury desperately need this to work effectively so they can stay open and continue to trade, the alternative is unthinkable at this time. Please bear with them through this period, they are relying on everyone’s support.
