As other clubs with greater resources wilt in the wintry wet the Dragons drive on to record decisive wins:
The Firsts beat Yeading Town 4-2 away in the Cup to reach the Quarterfinals. The Dragons performed well and were 3-0 up at half time. Quick pace, good team spirit and hard work gave the Dragons the advantage. The 2nd half was a quieter affair as they only scored once more whilst letting Yeading have a consolation couple of goals.
The Reserves walloped Kodak 5-2 at home. It must be said that the conditions were poor with the rain in the preceding days leading to a wet pitch that had not drained as well as one would hope. The Dragons however dealt with the conditions to control the match and win.
The U17s will be awarded a win as Ruislip Town could not field a team. The Dragons continue their 100% win record.
The U16s thrashed Pitshanger 6-0 away. This was a fantastic bravura Dragons performance with passing, tackling and shooting of the highest order. Chances were taken when previously they would have been fudged, shots were on target when recently they would have sailed away offering not a jot of consternation to the opposition. The Dragons found their voice and calls for the ball were coming from left, right and centre. In short, a hugely professional and enjoyable match on a sparkling late Autumn afternoon.
The U14 Girls had no match because Alexandra Park North could not field a team at the allotted time
The 14 Boys lost 0-2 in the Middlesex Cup against Whetstone Wanderers from the Watford League’s top division. Despite a few nervous glances between the Dragons as they watched Whetstone warm up, they played an excellent first half and had the better chances to score first. After a goalless first half, Whetstone managed to score twice from rebounds in the box as they held off the Dragons. The Dragons had shown that they can compete with any team in any division.
The U13s beat Bessingby Park Rangers 3-0 at home. This was the Dragons first clean sheet. The score could have been more as the Dragons had a plethora of chances with 3 shots hitting the cross bar and two the posts. Overall this was a great Dragons team effort.
The U12 Girls beat Enfield Town 13-1 at home in their first County Cup match. Despite the late start the Dragons began with their usual determination and early on it became evident that they were out to win. Despite an early own goal, the Dragons proceeded to fire in 7 goals in the first half and 6 in the second. A good performance by every Dragon.
The U12 Boys will be awarded a win as Hendon were suspended for reasons we can only guess at.
The New U11 Boys lost to Elite Magic away. The Dragons played well in the first half, poorly for 20 minutes of the second and then well again for the last ten minutes. The challenge now is to play at full tilt for the whole match.
The U11 Girls scored their first goal to huge jubilation against Vicky Park Rangers. The Dragons played well together on both sides of the ball with the goalies making huge saves – even stopping a 4 against 1 breakaway. The midfield and defenders worked together & the strikers had shots on goal. The newcomers contributed, with even the youngest players getting scoring chances. Most important of all the girls had fun! The had lost but by a much reduced margin
The U10s trained as they prepare to be entered in the League
