Our last game was away at Sheffield, this was always going to be tough, but the fact that the 18’s were already reduced by two second year players receiving 2 match bans, in the Nottingham game previous; we were in more need of the help of the U16. They had played Sheffield A U16 on the game directly before, and injuries came to Niks almost as soon as their game had started. The u16 playing up to the U18 must have been shattered before the game started, and I must say I was proud how well they played through those 3 periods, it was a tough game against the well drilled Sheffield side. Well done all of the team, the score ended 3 – 2 to Sheffield, and the Bulldogs outshot Sheffield 38 shots to their 34, it was a hard fought game to the very end. Cameron Kushnirenko made his debut for the 18’s, well done Cam. Lewis Baldwin well deservedly received the MVP – goals went to James Royds and Jay Fagan. I don’t know how they continued but Max Broadhurst played the whole game with a fracture to his wrist, and Adam Barnes suffered the whole game with an injury to his knee – Great Team effort guys WELL DONE!!!
