Bolstered by their successful run in the cup there is a real belief, within the Bridgewood High FC squad, that the team can win cup competition and promotion glory.
In order to provide the team with a better chance of success additional training sessions have been added to the team’s hectic schedule. Focusing on set-piece manoeuvres and ‘total football’ match strategy, the first floodlit training session was heralded as a major success by Bridgewood High School Football Development Officer, Derek Mansell. He said:
‘The lads are really committed to performing at the very best of their abilities. The team is also very fortunate that we have such great training facilities and staff and parents who are willing to give up their own time in support of the team.’
The following short movie of the latest BHFC training session was filmed, and edited by Bridgewood High School student, Mitzi Hassett. It will be submitted as part of her Design and Technology GCSE coursework.

Inspired by their brilliant win in the first round of the cup, three Bridgewood High FC players have combined their passion for football with music and have recorded a cup anthem. Timothy-Houghton Smith, Angelo Del Paggio and Aaron Jacobs have worked to produce the song which they hope will be adopted and sung by supporters at future games. The song will also be entered, for assessment, as part of each student’s GCSE coursework.
Using the state-of-the-art music facilities at Bridgewood High School, the three students are pleased with the end result which is available as a free download on this site.
I am sure that I speak on behalf of the entire school by wishing the Bridgewood team the very best of luck in their second round match against Wapping Bow. It would be good to hear the catchy song echoing from the touchline in future games!
‘We’re black, we’re white, our team is dynamite … Bridgewood High!!!!’

Phoenix reporter, Mitzi Hassett, caught up with Bridgewood’s Sam Smith to get the lowdown on dribbling with the ball.
‘Dribbling the ball needs skill, vision and an awareness of who is around you. At first you will need to keep both eyes on the ball, but as you get more confident, you’ll be be able to look up whilst you are dribbling and decide whether to have a shot or pass to a team mate.
Being able to dribble well means you can create space and help set up attacks. As you get better you may wish to add the odd trick (like Ronaldo!) to your dribbling to help you throw the defender and get past them more easily.
Remember, dribbling is all very well, but don’t get carried away. Often a pass to a team-mate may be a better option than taking on yet another defender.’ – Sam Smith.
