Joe debuts for U23s against Sheffield Utd

Former BWB captain Joe Porton made his debut for Bristol City’s U23 team last week.  Playing a strong Sheffield united side, Joe played in his familiar midfield role but could not prevent the Robins losing 4 – 0.  Nevertheless, it was a good experience for the Welsh youth international, and we hope to see him get more chances in the coming future.

Evander is snapped up by Huddersfield Town

Former Bath Schools player Evander Grubb has been signed by Huddersfield Town. Still only 16, Evander Grubb impressed the coaches at Huddersfield Town following his move from Bristol Manor Farm.

The 16-year-old was released by Bristol Rovers last year, but after an impressive start to the season in non-league at The Creek he found his way back into the professional game, earning a two-year scholarship with Championship Huddersfield following a trial.

Evander, from Radstock, made headlines in September after becoming the youngest scorer in the history of the FA Cup, netting a brace for Manor Farm in a 5-1 win over Cadbury Heath in the preliminary round. At 16 years and 54 days old, he beat the previous record by nine days.

Evander was always very slight, but always very lively and creative.  In the Scharr Nations Cup in Stuttgart he managed to take Bayern munich apart 🙂 I am sure he will continue in the same spirit further north.  We wish him all of the best.

Season 2019/20 Trials

Thank you to all for registering and trialling for season 2019/20. The process is never easy, much as we would like to support all players with additional training, our numbers are limited by funding, facility space and coaching staff available. We congratulate successful trialists and would encourage those who didn’t succeed this season to try again … keep enjoying football and we will see you on a touchline we’re sure in the not too distant future.

The U13/14 squad will be finalised wk comm 1 July (probably on Thursday 4th July by email.)

We would reiterate that our programme is FREE of charge, this means that we have to limit numbers of players to coach / facilities available to us.


If your business can support us and what we do please get in touch and email Damian.


If your club would like to arrange fixtures in 2019/20 – please email Damian Hodge and we will get some dates in the diary as an extension to our and your games programme.
