GFA Cup Day and a tricky tie against District League Div 1 opponents St Pancreas F C.
These teams met this summer in the 7 aside tournament in which Bilbao came out victorious but unfortunately a match where Goalkeeper Callum picked up his bad injury which put him out of football for this season. So Bilbao new all about these tough opponents. Squad: Powell, Kelly, Meek, Pearson, A.Elsbury, Watts, Joyce, Turner, House, R.Elsbury (c), Stokes, Clark, Thomas & Royall
Bristol Bilbao hit by a series of niggling injury's managed to patch together a team with only 50% actually fully fit to play. On 90 minutes and full time however after a tremendous team performance and endevour they were again victorious winning an amazing 7 goals to nil. The scoreline no way describes the closeness of the match especially the first half in which both teams were up for the game.Second half saw Bilbao gradually dominate,as St Pancreas slowly conceded Bilbaos superior football quality and realized that any physical approach would not win out against the Bristol Bilbao football philosophy. The match was over.
