Flyers end season on a high

THE Downend Flyers first team ended the 2022-23 season flying high, unbeaten in their final three games including a creditable draw against Frampton, a point which ensured the opponents finished as worthy champions.

Orla Montgomery came off the bench to score for the Flyers, with Amie Norris scoring the goal for the visitors.

Coach Dean Giles admitted after the game that although this season should have gone better, he was pleased with drawing the final three games against very strong sides, a marker in the sand for the new campaign that will start in September.

Over the close season, Dean will oversee a recruitment drive for our first team as well as additional coaches for all three of our women’s sides.

Meanwhile the reserves and A team have both also completed their seasons with creditable positions lower down the footballing pyramid.

Both sides will be looking to build on this great start in 2023-24.

Finally, the girls section of the is now enjoying tournament season, with the club hoping the girls will enjoy the opportunity to play in the smaller and shorter format of the game at various venues across the country.

A little bit of silverware would be a lovely bonus, of course!

The club are also looking forward to hosting their own tournament for the third consecutive year, at Johnson’s fields near Pomphrey Hill on June 24-25.

It is promising to be another showpiece event for the biggest girls’ club in the Bristol area, with around 100 teams expected over the weekend.
