WELCOME TO THE BRANTHAM ATHLETIC FOOTBALL  CLUB WEBSITE
*********************************************
Brantham's first team had their first  pre-season friendly last week when they entertained Haybridge Swifts at the Brantham Leisure Centre with a good crowd at the game to watch the game.
Despite the game finishing 0-0 it was a good match and certainly both teams had their fair number of chances on the evening.
Good to see some new and regular faces and also good to see some people who might be coming back to play for the Blue Imps next season,in the Brantham line-up for the game.
Brantham went forward from the first whistle with Simon Mann playing some telling through passes for his team mates to run onto and he not only created chances but had a couple of top class shots on target that the Heybridge keeper did well not only to stop but to hang onto.
Brantham 's Sean Gunn ran and chased after every ball and caused our opponents some problems with his direct running and ability to shield the ball from them.
Both teams pushed men forward at every given chance and both teams had  their fair share of shots on goal but neither side could make anything count.
The two  goalkeepers made some top class saves to deny their opponents with Brantham's Paddie Hawkings making three world class saves to deny Heybridge taking the lead.
Good  to see ex-Imps player Jack Smith who had a bad injury at the end part of last season for Heybridge and we wish him a safe and speedy recovery from his injury. 
 The first team have two matches for the coming week and they are on Tuesday  12th July when we host Brightlingsea Regent at Brantham Leisure Centre with a 7.45pm kick off and then on Friday July 15th the Brantham first team are at home to Bury with a 7.45pm kick off again.

The Golden Goal was not claimed for the match at home to  Heybridge.
