BLOSSOMFIELD suffered defeat on the opening day of the Bodykraft Midlands Division one season as they were beaten by local rivals Hampton.
Although the game was not ill-tempered, two players from each side were sin-binned for innocuous challenges that didn't help the flow of the game.
However ten minutes into the encounter, the visitors opened the lead through Eddie James.
Just before half time Hampton equalised, and two late goals gifted them the win.
Bloss will be hoping to improve on their disappointing start with a victory at home to Edgbaston tomorrow.
