We still long for the warmth of spring which creeps ever closer:
The Girls beat Ickenham 4-0 away in a very exciting, high energy game dominated mainly by the Dragons. Two goals were scored in the first half and neatly, another two in the second. The Dragons had gone out to win and did not disappoint – their determination and tenacity showed through.
The new U11s lost to CS Rangers away on Wormwood Scrubs. The Dragons are still work in progress in a match of two contrasting halves. In the first the Dragons gave Rangers too much time and respect and so were punished. After a few words and adjustments at half time the Dragons went out to perform brilliantly which resulted in a competitive half of football.
The U12s beat Greenford Celtic 2-1 away. The Dragons played remarkably well with a full contingent of parents encouraging them on. They lead 2-0 to almost the end when Celtic scraped a lucky goal.
The U13s will be awarded 3 points as Pinner could not raise a team.
The U14s lost 2-4 away against Hanwell Town in a match refereed by Hanwell’s coach. The Dragons ran the show but failed to take goal scoring opportunities. This was one of those games where the luck was running in the other direction. On a positive note the Dragons were happy with their style and structure so – “defeated but not disheartened”.
The U15Bs away match against Greenford Celtic was called off as their pitch was deemed unplayable.
The U15As beat Hendon 3-1 at home. The Dragons were again without their goalkeeper, facing Hendon who they had lost twice to earlier in the season. This was a lively, tight match until the Dragons converted a penalty after a foul on their striker. The Dragons then doubled their lead to 2-0 at the half. There was now no room for complacency as in times of yore. A third goal soon came and then the Dragons soaked up the pressure before conceding a late penalty.
The U18s lost 1-4 away to Kodak. The Dragons again failed to put their opposition away when dominating the match. Five good, but missed, chances and a couple of outstanding saves by Kodak’s keeper keep them in the game before alas a couple of penalties and a couple of breakaway goals gave Kodak their victory
The Reserves away match was called off because the opposition could not find their keys to their changing room
The Firsts home match was called off because the boiler at LCS had broken down
