Late winner earns Buccs men victory
A last-gasp strike from Bradley Milburn-Anderson ensured TeamBath Buccaneers made it two wins from two at the start of their 2010/11 England Hockey League Conference West campaign.
Buccs and Fareham were tied at two goals a-piece for the final 30 minutes of Saturday’s game before the 20-year-old struck to earn TeamBath Buccs a 3-2 win.
Richard Bendry had put Buccs ahead midway through the first half and Phil Ball made it 2-0 after 22 minutes, before James Seagar pulled a goal back for the visitors just before the break.
Kent Langridge levelled up for Fareham five minutes into the second half. But then Milburn-Anderson – a product of Buccs’ Junior Academy – netted his first Conference West goal to ensure Buccs secured all three points.

Buccs ladies’ firsts recorded the first point of their 2010/11 Conference West campaign with a 0-0 away draw at Swansea. Despite some good build-up play, Buccs couldn’t break the deadlock and the game ended in a goalless draw.
