U12s Festival - March 2017

Nailsea U12’s plus a few 10 year olds to help out, found themselves up against bigger and stronger teams as the afternoon went on. This did not faze them or their determination and enthusiasm, they even managed to pop a goal in and take the lead when Kieran Jellis slotted home following some great passing with Jake Chapman. A second goal came from some gritty play by Maisy Hole who passed to Jake waiting in space, beat the keeper with a determine strike. Unfortunately Nailsea were unable to hold onto this lead losing out in the last minute. In each game the opposition seemed to get taller but at the same time Nailsea get stronger, more organised and confident. Jess Chapman, Niamh Brodrick and Maisy Hole supported well in midfield, working tirelessly with growing confidence in their tackling and pushing forward. In defence Lily Bartle-Jenkins, Johnny King and Ruby Cairns worked well together and were particularly solid in their penalty corner routine, whilst keeper Josh Hobbs made several good saves and strong clean clearing kicks. With all the players putting in 100% effort and determination awarding ‘Players of the Day’ was difficult. With the help of the parents the votes went to Ruby Cairns whose commitment and determination was unwavering despite her picking up several injuries to her hand and foot.




5th March 2016 NAILSEA U12’s

Nailsea’s U12’s had a good day out at the Avon festival at Gordano, winning 2 and losing 2.  In a biting chill, felt more by the spectators than the players it seems, the young team enjoyed showing a good range of skills with enthusiasm and determination. Ben Warren fought hard and keenly in attack, Johnny King tackled and organised well, Kieren Jellis passed well and had some good positioning, Maisy Hole was both brave and feisty all are at least 4 years younger than some of their opponents.  Katie Henderson and Josh Hobbs are both confident tackling and running with the ball. James Warren is a natural attacker and enjoys using his ‘silky skills’ to push forward. Last player to mention is keeper Jakob Hole, solid, athletic, fearless and likes to be involved and again had a great game making several spectacular saves. A great performance all round.

Lost 1 – 0  v   Old Bristolians,   Won 4 – 0  v  Thornbury ( James 3  Katie 1 )

Lost 5 – 0  v   Westbury,            Won 2 – 0  v  Clevedon   ( James 1  Kieren 1)

11th October: U16s at Gordano

Well done to the U16's girls who held a very strong and experienced Thornbury side to a 0-0 draw.
Lots of great hockey all over the pitch but special mention to Jasmine who played well as always and our Molly who took a lifted ball to the chin for the team and still didn't get ruffled when a short corner was awarded to the opposition.
Really well done and a great performance for the teams first outing.

NAILSEA  U10’s Mixed Festival

This was the last festival of the season for the newly formed U10 squad and they came up against the biggest and most experienced sides in the festival. At each festival Nailsea has played new additions to their squad and this was no exception. Matilda McCarthy had an excellent afternoon in goal, making several fine saves and brave tackle, while Niamh Brodrick, Lainey Thorpe and Grace Bingham also playing in their first matches, slotted in well and made good efforts with their tackling and positional play.

Several of the players arrived straight from Rugby matches and were perhaps a little quiet at first but they soon settled and all made great efforts.

Katie Henderson again had a successful festival, putting in strong tackles, telling runs and added two goals to her tally. In defence, Ellie Richardson gets stronger and quicker with her tackling and  passing every match. Saskia Lawrence was lively in midfield and her skilful stick work helped her notch up three goals.

Nailsea results were: -                Won  2 – 1    v    Somerset Gryphons

                                               Won  3 – 2    v    Yate B

                                               Lost   2 – 0    v     City of Bath

                                               Lost   3 -  0    v     Team Bath Buccaneers 1

8th February 2015

NAILSEA  U10’s Festival

In an inspiring afternoon of hockey Nailsea U10's showed us just how much they are improving,  not just individually but as a team. This is their third festival in what is only their first season. Katie Henderson and Ellie Richardson were solid in defence, whilst Saskia Lawrence, Paige Richardson and Johnny King were lively and supportive in midfield. Up front Ben Warren and Kieran Jelliss kept running, battling and confusing the opposition.

The team finished with three 1 - 0 wins against Yate, Firebrands and All Stars and a 0 - 0 draw against Clifton. The goals were scored by Ben Warren, Saskia Lawrence and Katie Henderson, who scored in her ten minute stint in attack.



29th November

NAILSEA  U16’s     0      v     2   THORNBURY  U16;s

The young Nailsea side are used to playing above their age group and remain undeterred. Each game sees their play improve and their confidence grow. Throughout the first half they fought off the strong competition with great defensive play from Mollie Chidzey, Alice Hill and Lucy Milton.

Player of the match Bernie Forge work well with Danielle Clarke, Cat Coates and Sarah Page  across the midfield. Despite several opportunities shots by Lizzie Williams and Rosanna Wood were defended well. At the other end last minute stand in keeper Jasmine Wood made several good saves, but some clever passing and quick movement gave Jasmine little chance with Thornburys two goals. Despite the score line the Nailsea girls can be proud of their improvement.


U10's Results

U 10’s Festival @ Yate

Nailsea U10’s put on a brilliant display in only their second outing. Surprised and pleased at the previous festival the Managers and Supporters were stunned and in awe at their improvement, effort and determination in only two months of being together. Such was their confidence that when one team failed to turn up, the players joined forces with some Clifton players to fill the gap.

The younger players, Maisy Hole and  Paige Richardson only six, Lois Pinkney and Ben Warren seven and Johnny King eight all competed as strongly and determined as the older ones.  Johnny, Maisy and Lois also played several games for the combined clubs team, nicknamed the All Stars.  Ellie Richardson and Katie Henderson have obviously listened to their coach and tried hard to keep their position and create space. Saskia Lawrence and Jakob Hole volunteered to share the Goalkeeping duties, despite both being keen attacking players. The fact that Nailsea had no goals against them says how well they both played between the posts and out on the field they scored three goals each. Who is Kieran Jelliss, newest member of the team,? you would not think so, keen and confident chasing and tackling from the start.  Which leaves demon attacker, who never gives up until the ball is in the net, James Warren, scorer of eleven goals. Well done and thank you to the players and their supporters.

Nailsea Played 4  Won  4  Goals For 16  Goals Agst  0:                 2 – 0,  6 – 0,  2 – 0,  6 – 0

All Starts Played  4 Drew 2, Goals For 2, Goals Agst  2  Lost 2 :  1 – 0,  1 – 1,   1 – 0,   1 - 1


FIRST OUTING FOR NAILSEA’S U10’S - 19th Oct 2014









Nailsea’s  newly formed U10’s group had their first outing at the weekend in a festival of hockey at Yate. Keen, enthusiastic and lively they amazingly, all out performed any expectation.

Jakob Hole and Saskia Lawrence opted to share the goalkeeping duties, switching to  attacker when in the field, where both showed excellent stick skills and positional play. James Warren also played some strong attacking hockey forcing the opposition keepers and defenders to make vital saves. Little brother Ben was like a small terrier snapping at the heels of anyone daring to threaten a Nailsea  advance. Vinnie Pinkney supported the attack with confidence and determination, continually keeping up the push towards goal.

Obviously enjoying themselves and despite their slight build, Lois Pinkney and Paige Richardson showed determination with their running and tackling. Playing mostly in defensive positions, Ellie Richardson and Johnny King kept their area secure. Ellie kept her eye on the ball whilst Johnny did everything to keep the opposition at bay but couldn’t resist pushing forward at any opportunity. Katie Henderson and Maisy Hole showed  positive tackling technique and ball control, looking keenly to make to right pass.

The results of the four short matches were :- wins over Redland 4 – 0,  Clifton 1 -0. Weston 4 -0 and a 2-1 loss against City of Bath
