After a difficult first few weeks in the top flight Lions under 11s are finally starting to find their feet.
Last weeks final minute defeat by Creswell 4-3 after looking the better side for most of the game would have dented the confidence of a lesser team but not the lions!!
This week the team faced Lane Head who had beaten them narrowly in the pre season round robin 3-2, and after last weeks narrow defeat the lions were not going to be denied again. New boy Rhys Parry scored his first goal for the team in the first 5 minutes of the match superbly set up by last weeks hat-trick hero Josh Guest. The pair again combined in the final third of the pitch to make it 2 and then 3-0 and a quick fire hat-trick for Rhys Parry. The midfield of Josh, Aaron and Connor LLoyd had now got a firm grip on the game, passing,moving and retaining possession and without the ball constantly pressing the opposition into mistakes. The ref then gave a very harsh penalty against Connor ‘Psyco’ Stevens to make the score 3-1 and virtually straight from the restart ruled out a fourth goal for Rhys for a foul before superbly lobbing the advancing goalkeeper.
The second half was much the same but with no goals but plenty of opportunities to score more, but more impressive was the fantastic team performance and great defensive displays from Connor, Richie and Owen and Silky underpinned by the man of the match performance by Liam Craddock playing as sweeper!
After losing two players just days before the start of the season the lions have had to add players and shuffle players around to play in different positions which includes playing the top scorer as a sweeper and the right winger as a right back!! Nobody said it would be easy but keep improving and keep playing our football and we will win games and lots of admirers!!!
Well done boys!!!
