With a busy close season in the transfer market needed after the loss of Ella “shes no Fella” Spears and Ryan “Curley” Wood to Stoke City and Hednesford Town, the new manager has had to delve deep into the club funds to secure Ellison “Eddy” Yates from The Panthers ( two twix and a mars bar!!) and a Van Persie styled signing of Liam “Fanny” Craddock from the Tigers ( undisclosed Fee!! ) to bolster the Lions for the new season which kicked off today!

Our first fixture was a quickly rearranged friendly match against Brewood, a team we have never managed to gain a point against in the past to kick off our campaign; quickly followed by a second league game against them!! Again the footballing gods were having a laugh at the Lions expense!!

With the early exchanges going Brewoods way the Lions dug in and rolled up their sleeves and got to work, with Sammy Silk in goal, Owen Lloyd and Connor Stevens excelling in defence.With more and more chances being made and spurned Brewood scored just before half time, a little against the run of play. The Lions started the second half the better and after a cracking individual goal from Liam Craddock, grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and quickly were awarded a penalty which was brilliantly saved by the keeper onto the post and the rebound falling to the lions was equally brilliantly saved. But the Lions were not to be denied moments later Liam rose like a tin of John West Salmon to nod home a corner from Connor Stevens!!

The second game was much the same, against the run of play Brewood took the lead just before half time and again the lions fought back with a headed goal from new team captain Josh Guest from another “Colin” Stevens corner. But for all the pressure the Lions could not seal the win!

After two great performances by the team, Liam Craddock got man of the matches. Well done Liam and well done team keep it up!!
