Crick Athletic Reserves VS Bourton – AWAY

Coventry Alliance Football League Division 3

Crick Athletic Reserves 1 Bourton and Frankton 1

An 85th minute penalty from Nick Manning ensured Bourton and Frankton came away from their visit to Crick with a deserved point following their 1-1 draw. 

The late leveller was at least what the visitors deserved having been the better of the two sides particularly in the second period where their build-up play was missing the crucial edge in front of goal. 

The first half was an evenly fought contest which saw Crick go ahead on 11 minutes with Josh Goodwin finding the net.  After that early setback, Bourton settled and more than matched the hosts without carving out any real chances with the breeze at their back. 

Both sides continue to go toe-to-toe in the second half and it was Bourton who looked the more likely to score as their neat build-up play created a series of clear cut openings to not only level but also go in front.  

With several chances going astray, it looked like it wasn’t going to be the visitor’s day and they had a scare on 78 minutes when Crick nearly made it 2-0 with a drive which cannoned off the crossbar.

Yet with seven minutes left Bourton’s persistence was rewarded. Another breakaway on goal saw Tim Sutcliffe upended in the penalty area from which Manning sent the goalkeeper the wrong way from the spot kick to earn a share of the points.

Bourton VS Harbury FC – HOME

Coventry Alliance League Division 3

Bourton and Frankton 3 Harbury FC 5

Two goals from Danny McManus and a single from Tim Sutcliffe were not quite enough to earn Bourton and Frankton their first win of the season after a 5-3 home reversal to newly-promoted Harbury FC.

Instead it was the visitor’s Claudio Silva who took the limelight by bagging four of his side’s tally as they claimed the points at The Field. 

Conditions may have been wet on a glorious-looking Bourton pitch but both sides contributed to a good entertaining game with Harbury edging possession and Bourton still clearly trying to settle into our new system and style of play. Yet they thought they had the perfect start by finding the visitor’s net early on only to be denied by a dubious offside flag, only for the visitor’s to then go down the other end and take the lead themselves.

McManus grabbed his first to draw Bourton level but Harbury hit back before the break to go in front once again at 2-1 which soon began 3-1 just after the restart. A fourth midway through the second half effectively sealed the points and contest, and although McManus added his and Bourton’s second to make it 4-2, Harbury added a fifth through Ross Quartermaine. 

The hosts did have the last word with Tim Sutcliffe adding Bourton’s third late on but Harbury had already done enough to close out the victory.

Whitnash Town VS Bourton – AWAY

Coventry Alliance Football League Division 3

Whitnash Town 1 Bourton and Frankton 0

Bourton and Frankton’s new manager Michael Hoey had a losing start but will take plenty of encouragement from his side’s narrow defeat away at Whitnash Town on Saturday.

As the scoreline suggests, it was a close game in windy conditions with the visitors deserving at least a draw in their first game back after a week off.  

Having seen several decent chances go close, Bourton went behind 10 minutes from end and although they pressed forward in the latter stages were unable to grab a deserved equaliser. In particular they can probably feel hard done by to not have been given the chance to level in stoppage time when strong valid calls for a late penalty were turned away.

Cov Sky Blue VS Bourton – AWAY

Coventry Alliance League Division 3

Coventry Sky Blues 3 Bourton and Frankton 3

Bourton and Frankton got their 2020-21 Coventry Alliance League campaign underway on Saturday by earning a hard-earned point away at Coventry Sky Blues FC.

With the start to the season delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, B & F showed no early signs of rustiness and were quick into their stride to lead 2-1 at the break in their opening Division 3 encounter.

However the Binley-based hosts came out strongly in the second period to not only level but go 3-2 in front.

Not to be outdone though, B & F responded and deservedly came away with a point thanks to a late equaliser.

On the mark for the visitors were Tim Sutcliffe with a double and Nick Manning.

Bourton & Frankton announce two welcome boosts for new season

Bourton and Frankton Football Club have received two significant welcome boosts as they continue their preparations for the 2018/19 season.

The village-based club, located five miles from Rugby, have secured a sponsorship deal with Rugby-based company, Weatherseal Facades, who will sponsor the club’s playing and training kit for the coming campaign.

That news has been given a further boost with the club securing another 10 year lease of their ground on Main Street in Bourton-on-Dunsmore – which has been their home for nearly 100 years – through to 2028.

Bourton & Frankton are one of the oldest established clubs in the local area and will once again be playing on Saturday afternoons in the Coventry Alliance Football League. An FA Charter Status Club, they continue to offer one of the best playing surfaces, along with changing rooms and showers, plus a very active social scene.
