First League Match of The Season
Brentwood U 17's secure good first League win against Epping UC
On a reasonably nice September Sunday morning. Brentwood U17's were facing Epping UC in our first League match of the Season.
Brentwood won the toss and elected to run up the slope.
First half showed Epping's strength against us in the forward pack, and overall they probably had an edge in the scrums.
Our backs didn!t seem to be able to play their normal flowing game, and we were poor at the breakdown.
In the second half, and running down the slope, we gor into more of a rhythmn, but still didn't capitalise on the advantage. Passing and handling amongst the backs was much better.
Epping provided us with worthy opponents, with the forward pack being particularly impressive.
Good start to our League campaign. Clacton next in the Cup.
