With the wettest February since records began it was another weekend of limited matches which however did not prevent the Boys U13s from recording a record win:
The Firsts just lost 1-2 to Pitshanger Dynamo away in the Quarter Final of the Alec Smith Premier Division Cup. The match had originally been scheduled at home, but it was waterlogged and unfit to play on.
The Reserves had no match
The U17s Reds had no match
The U17 Whites lost away to Drayton. The Dragons looked the better side for the first 20 minutes and were comfortable at 1 nil up, but awful tackles took out their captain and another their central midfielder, with both ending up in A&E. We wish them a speedy recovery but fear they may be out for the rest of the season.
The U16s home match against St Joseph’s was called off due to a waterlogged pitch
The U14 Boys away match against Celtic Red was called off due to a waterlogged pitch
The U14 Girls away match against Whetstone Wanderers was called off due to a waterlogged pitch
The U13s thumped West Drayton 9-1 away. Returning to action after 3 weeks out the Dragons started slowly but managed to score first. By the start of the second half the Dragons had found their footballing feet and were raring to go – scoring goal after goal. It was particularly gratifying to that so many of the team scored showing how well they have come together as a team. Onwards and upwards!
The U12 Girls away match v Barnet Nightingales was called off due to a waterlogged pitch
The U12 Boys lost at home to Premiership Hanwell Town in the League Trophy Cup group stage. Having played little football in recent weeks the Dragons were ill prepared for such an encounter but nevertheless it was better to back on the pitch rediscovering their footballing skills.
The U11 Girls home match v Vicky Park Rangers was called off due to a waterlogged pitch
The U11 Boys just lost to Pitshanger at home. With the Dragons again having played little football in recent weeks, and missing key players, their fans feared the worst but were proved wrong by the increasingly doughty young Dragons. If it had not been for an unfortunate penalty and other happenstances the Dragons could have won. All in all, a very creditable Dragons performance.
The U10s trained in preparation to joining the League
