Bethel 6 - Bethesda 3
Scorers: Jac Lloyd-Williams, Llyr a Iestyn (4)
The best performance of the season so far with everyone in the team using the ball well and aware of their positions throughout. The best example of playing from the back from any team this season was demonstrated by Nia, exactly like Franco Baresi or Fabio Cannavaro from the great Italian team.
The team went ahead 3-0 early in the game and extended this to 5-1 before the opponents struck near in the end in a 6-3 win to Bethel. The scorers were Jac Lloyd-Williams, Llyr and Iestyn (4).

Llanberis v Bethel
A good start again this week with Jac Green and Iestyn putting the team ahead. Bethel lost control a little after the break but then responded strongly. A close even game with effort and commitment from everyone. The focus for the next training will be on moving the ball quickly between each othe

Bethel v Bontnewydd
A better start today and the team generally kept their shape better and trusted their teammates. Bethel went 2 goals up early on but by half time it was all square. Bethel dominated after the break, scoring 7 without reply. Although the attack was excellent, deserved praise needs to be given to the defence (Llyr and Jack Green) who didn’t miss a tackle all game.

Bethel v Llandwrog
A slow start from the team today (don’t forget kick-off 9:30 not meeting time 9:30!) but as the game progressed they came more and more into the game. It was 3-1 to Llandwrog at the final whistle but on the request of the opposition a second game was held with Bethel creating chance after chance. Iestyn was on the scoresheet and through the game there was more evidence of team play. It finished 5-3, although a goal was ruled out right on the final whistle. There was at least 10 great chances and if the team continue to play like this the goals will come.

Llanrug v Bethel
After two weeks of continuous rain, the game had to be moved from Bethel’s waterlogged pitch to Llanrug. The team started well with purposeful passing but it was Llanrug who went infront, but gradually Bethel got more organised, and after a cracking goal from Gruff Bethel finished the game strongly. Maths is a weakness for the coach! But the general opinion is that the game finished level 4-4 with a positive optimists thinking Bethel sneaked it!

Nantlle Vale v Bethel
Again this season there is a bigger pitch, with larger goals and 7 a side.
Although with only one training session held, Bethel travelled to one of the strongest sides in the league to start the season. Unfortunately, Liam had left the team but with 3 new players joining to create a stronger squad. Although it wasn’t a full squad for the 1st game, it was a positive start with no goals during the first 15 minutes, but a few changes created some uncertainty and Nantlle Vale scored regularly until Bethel tightened things during the last 10 minutes.
A very encouraging start, with a few things to work on tactically due to unfamiliarity of the players with each other and a new 7 vs 7 format. Keep the faith!
