There are two games left in the season and they involve away trips to both the teams who are below us in the league. Our target is to win both games and so finish the season on a 5 – 5 record. The Farnham Knights game will not be easy as they have beaten us before. This is our closest league fixture even though it involves a round trip of about 160 miles!


Coach Powles says “We have been playing the Knights for over 25 years, there is a lot of history so it’s always a game that means a lot to both teams. They have one of the best RB in the country and have just had a good win, so we expect a close game.”

Having played 5 games, we are now in the second half of the season with a record of won 2 and lost 3. All the losses are against the two teams who have a 100% winning record. It is now time to reinforce our home advantage with a win over the visiting Knights.


Kick-off is at 14:30 and the event is free to attend for all supporters.


Coach Powles says “Frustrating game last Sunday as I thought we played better than the first game, the first quarter was tight, the 3rd quarter was scoreless. We just allowed the game to get out of control in the 4th. I thought we tackled better and the Offense had some success, but we had some unfortunate turnovers and poor special teams play that gave the Blitz a short field and to their credit they took advantage. You just can’t make the mistakes we did against top teams.


But we can take some positives forward, we competed for large periods, and if we clean up the mistakes we know we can play to a high level. We are only half way through the season, so we have a lot of football ahead of us, we are still in good shape and our eyes are firmly pointed ahead.”

Q: what made you take up American Football?


A: My first year of university, my flat mate said he was going to try out for American Football so I tagged along to the try out. I was initially cut but joined the UWE Bullets the following year.

Q: what other sports do you play?


A: None as seriously as American Football, but I play 5-a-side football with some guys from work every week.


Q: When did you join the Bristol Aztecs and what position (s) do you play


A: I joined during my second year at university as a defensive end. Going into my fourth year as an Aztec I play all positions on the defensive line and offensive tackle too.


Q: what's the day job?


A: Software Designer for Hewlett Packard Enterprise


Q: were you surprised when you were selected as our first captain for the 2018 season and why do you think you were chosen?


A: Quite a bit, I'd been a captain before at my university team, but was surprised at the opportunity to be a captain for the Aztecs. I think my team first mentality and work ethic gave the coaches reason to chose me as a captain.


Q: What’s your Instagram address?


A: My Instagram is: felixdadodo
