Under 12 Coach Adela Rodriguez’s overview of the 2017/18 season.

This was a season of change for the Under 12’s. Alongside challenges with changes in pitches, coach Joe Robinson left just before Christmas and long-time manager Mick Preston announced his departure at the end of January.

Adela Rodriguez took over the managerial reigns, working alongside BFCitC coach Ed Smart. The players and parents would like to extend a huge thank you to each of them for their valuable contributions to the team.

After a challenging start, performances started to pick-up. Although results were indifferent, only the eventual league winners Lostock Hall Panthers would inflict a heavy defeat on the Clarets.

The highlight of the season was a hugely entertaining 3-3 draw at rivals Preston North End which saw a last-minute equaliser save the ‘Lilywhites’ blushes!
