Thanks for the bottle of scotch and also the best turn out of all the three teams.Congrats to all trophy winners namely Mark and Sam plus Kris,Paul & Bryn for long term service.Fogot to mention Bryn for top goal scorer and Greg for his penalty proess plus off course goal of the season by Jamie V Hedge End for which I apologise.Season may start a bit earlier this year so I will be in touch soon to let you know when pre season starts.If you know of anyone who would like a friendly let me know. Enjoy your last few weeks of relaxation as beach runs are looming.the gaffer.

The season finally arrives next week with our first game being @ station road against Netley Reserves 6pm ko be there for 5.30.
The lead up to the start of this season has been a bit disjointed with the friendlies being geared up for season start date of Aug 18th. As we know this did not happen through the combination of the pitch not being ready and the cricket season finishing at the end of August!I hope it has not upset your appetite/preperation for what I hope will be a succesful season.the gaffer

We have got 22 players signed on this year and you can already appreciate that all of you will get an opportunity to stake your claim for a place in the side.Saturday was a prime example with nine players for various reasons being unavailable.That shows the depth of squad thats required to have a chance in this league and I am sure that other teams have the same problems.There is going to be occasions when we have 17 or 18 players available and I will have to make the unenveiable task of leaving some players out all together. I will always try to be fair in my selection but my first 11 is not necessarily going to be your first 11.Rotation,trainig,the opposition and availibility will have a bearing on my final selection.At the end of the day I will be selecting what I feel is my strongest team. All I can say is keep up the training and take your chances when they arise. My final team selection may prove to be unpopular but I am in this job to win games for Burridge AFC not win popularity stakes! I feel this year we have got a strong squad together and baring long term injuries etc we have a great chance of challenging for the title.Any way thats me off my soap box thanks for your support see you all Wednesday.the gaffer

Great result against a team I feel may not be far away come the end of the season.Lets pick up as many points early doors and see if we can creep into top spot.the gaffer

As our training facilities are not ready I have rearranged the venue to Botley Rec centre High Street Botley this evening 7-8pm. Will try an organise future training sessions whilst Wildern is under repair watch this space.the gaffer
