Match report by Tony Pomeroy This was a day Bridgwater players and supporters will want to forget. Clevedon continued their fine, unbeaten run with this comprehensive victory over a very lack-lustre Bridgwater & Albion who lost at home for only the second time this season.Clevedon dominated the game as they outthought, outmuscled and outplayed the [...]

Bridgwater travelled up the M5 on a cold and overcast day to take on the current league leaders Cleve. They had not been defeated at home this season and only squandered two wins away so this was always going to be a tough game for third placed Bridgwater. The game was littered with handling errors [...]

College Way saw the second showdown between Bridgwater and North Petherton in as many weeks, with both clubs’ second strings competing for the local bragging rights just seven days after the first teams. In the first team fixture it was Bridgwater who triumphed with a score line of 23-13. Bridgwater second team looked to build [...]

On derby day at College Way, Bridgwater’s second string travelled up the M5 to play their counterparts at Hornets. Hornets kindly agreed to an early kick off so the team could get back in time to watch some of the action between Bridgy and Pethy. With Hornets sitting at the top of the table with [...]

For the second week running Albion’s Dirtrackers produced a performance worthy of their best which has so often escaped from their grasp this season. This time it was high-riding Wiveliscombe II who came under the cosh in the Dirtrackers’ best controlled game of the season.  Albion fielded a numerically strong squad with 25 players finally [...]

Yet another much changed Albion Dirtrackers line-up visited Somerton to fulfil the earlier postponed match from 17 January. Albion’s side showed a delightful blend of youth and experience and fielded a back line capable of setting things alight.  Indeed, Albion made a bright start spreading the ball about well with one of the two John [...]

Albion’s Dirtrackers, buoyed by their victory over high riding local rivals Morganians the previous week, travelled to Wells with some optimism of completing the double, having beaten the Cathedral City side 12-7 earlier in the season at home. However despite fielding most of the personnel which contributed to the previous week’s efforts, this was a [...]

Bridgy were unrecognisable as the same team that lost heavily the previous week. Their closing down of Weston runners and first up tackling was a vast improvement. So much so that, three minutes in the Bridgwater centres were caught well offside in their enthusiasm. Weston slotted the resultant penalty. For the remainder of the first [...]

This result is the heaviest defeat for Bridgy’s colts for some. The main factors being some very poor tackling from Bridgwater in defence and (credit to Wellington) the sheer mobility and physical fitness of all their players, of which they appear to have almost two full squads again! In truth, going forward, Bridgwater exercise good [...]
