The damp weather continued over the half term:
The Dragons are starting a new team for 8-11 year old girls. Interested parties should phone the Hon Sec on 07860 459178 for information
The U11’s were narrowly beaten 1-2 at home by the London Eagles. This was almost an exceptional performance by the Dragons who came very close to beating a team who were on a 9 months unbeaten run. The Dragons were well organised in defence and snuffed out attack after attack. The midfield and attack created tremendous goal scoring opportunities but almost inexplicably found it difficult to actually put the ball in the back of the net. It is time for more shooting practice!
The U12s walloped Harrow St Mary’s 10-0 away. Following last week’s best result of the season the Dragons went one further with a magnificent bunch of 10 goals – each one scented with sheer class and undeniable beauty and two superb hat-tricks! The Dragons remain top of the league and are still definitely a force to be reckoned with!
The U13s thrashed St Joseph’s 8-0 at home. This was a great win for the Dragons against a good, well organised side despite being a man down towards the end. The Dragons are properly cohesive squad. This was a good job well done.
The U14As against AFC Wembley was called off due to a no show from official referee and unplayable pitch conditions, another game in hand for the Dragons.
The U14Bs had no game
The U15 had no game
The U17s had no game
The U18s just lost 2-3 away to Ruislip Town. The Dragons had had a difficult start to the season and were on the verge of folding in December. However an incredible effort by all in rebuilding the squad had put them finally in a position to compete. With some new players it was difficult in establishing a pattern of play. Never the less despite all this was a great game with the Dragons coming back from 2-0 down but alas, with just a couple of minutes remaining, another error led to Ruislip’s winner. Despite an eventual disappointing result the Managers were “delighted with being able to compete once again”.
The 1st Team had no game
The Reserves game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The new U10s continue to train in preparation to joining the League.
