Brightlingsea Regent U12s started their first competitive season away to Frinton and Walton blues, a team that beat us twice last season.
Regent started confidently with Samuel Kerr and Rafe Chapman dominating the midfield. Midway through the first half a great cross by Right Back Alex Hill was controlled and confidently put into the back of the net by debutant Lindon Berisha 1:0 to Regent.
A few minutes later after some great interlink play, Callum Caunter dribbled past 2 and put in a great cross for Lindon to smash his second of the game. 2:0 to Regent.
It turned out to be a really good controlled half of football by the U12s.
The second half was much more even then with 10 minutes left Frinton and Walton pulled one back. 1:2. Regent had some chances on the break to extend the lead. But more importantly held firm at the back despite some constant pressure from Frinton and Walton.
Full time 1:2 to Brightlingsea Regent U12s
A great performance from the boys today. Every player playing their part.
My man of the match was Zac Levett who was outstanding.
