A frosty start to the games on Sunday saw the Lions up against a decent Beechdale side in one of the first games of the day. A better start was had by the opposition and they scored, unluckily, dropped through the ‘ keeper, Aaron Clee’s legs from an un-sighted shot. Not undeterred the Lions continued to battle and produced some good football. Ella Spiers and Charlie Smith having excellent games started to get a foot hold in midfield and defence respectively. Ella took a tremendous smack in the face from a rebounding clearance, but continued without complaint. Further on in the game a good move saw Ritchie Sutton combine with Ryan Wood to produce a one on one with the ‘keeper only for Ryan to flash his shot wide of the mark, with the keeper stranded. More was to come as the Lions kept tackling hard, winning the ball and spraying it forward. Joshua Guest was involved in a move which saw Ryan Wood with a carbon copy one on one again with the ‘keeper and unfortunately, a well struck shot was off target with the ‘keeper beaten. Another chance went begging as the Lions continued to push forward. Beechdale saw a couple of opportunities go close, and finally won a free kick just outside the Lion’s area. A fierce shot saw the diving Aaron Clee get his fingers and his face in the way only to see the ball hit a post and go in – an unlucky attempt as Aaron was forced off for the remainder of the game. Joshua Guest taking on the job between the sticks. The Lions continued to show some good touches at the start of the second half. Connor Byrne and George Bicknell were brought on to influence the Lions attacking play. George Bicknell getting forward on a few occasions only to hit a wall of defenders as Beechdale sat deep. Always worried about the counter attack Beechdale broke away to secure a third goal, but as always, the Lions kept their heads and continued to try and get forward. Owen Lloyd played well and tackled hard to get the ball from danger areas, sometimes out numbered in defence but seemed to get in a vital tackle at the last to stop any further goals going in. Well done to Ella and the lads.
