Results W/E 10th March 2024

The Firsts lost 2-6 to Camden and Islington away. The Firsts were riddled with injuries but still managed to pull a squad together. They started the game well and to their delight went 2 -0 up. Then, following an injury to the Dragons’ keeper, the flood gates opened and the Dragons couldn’t hang on.
The Blues narrowly lost 0-1 at home to Kodak. This was one of the best first halves the Blues’ Coach said they have seen the team play. Despite the beautiful football, in the end it was not their day and the Dragons couldn’t finish their chances.
The Old Dragonians had no scheduled game.
The new U11 Girls played magnificently to beat Actonians 3-2 away. The Dragons had a bare seven players to face the massed Actonian hoards. The Dragons played to their strengths, with the instruction to defend indefatigably and, when the opportunity arose, to “hoof it up field and hope for the best” . The “best” did happen and at a nail biting 2-2, as the minutes ticked inexorably to the end, the Dragons scored the winner. This was a brilliant performance from the Dragons. 
The U13 Girls beat Islington Borough 2-1 at home. This was a great result after such a long period of games being called off. You might have excused the Dragons for not being fully match fit, but they played well and, importantly, outscored their opponents.
The U14 Girls beat Enfield Town 2-1 at home. The Dragons played an exemplary first half to go two nil up. They then tired in the second half to concede one goal, but importantly they held on to the win that they deserved.
The U15 Girls had no scheduled game.
The U16 Girls lost 0-4 at home to Watford in the Cup. The Dragons put up a valiant fight in difficult conditions with the pitch only just playable. Despite going down, they kept their spirits high and fought until the final whistle.
The U11 Boys just lost 1-2 to Super Skills at home. Another competitive match where the Dragons narrowly fell on the wrong side of the result.
The U12 Boys Red lost away at Brook House. A hard-fought game in unfavourable conditions with a few questionable decisions from the ref.  The Dragons passed creatively and linked up play to create the opening goal and were matched in their prowess by the Dragons’ goalkeeper making a number of outstanding saves.
The U12 Boys White drew 0-0 with Football Samurai at home in the League Trophy. Credit must go to Samurais who defended very well, despite only having 7 players. The Dragons were rusty playing their first match for a month. A tactical switch for the Dragons at half time saw them dominate the second half, but they just could not capitalise on their clutch of chances on the very wet and bumpy pitch.
The U13 Boys beat West Drayton 9-3 away. The Dragons were playing champagne football in the first half, tearing through the West Drayton defence. There was a natural easing off the gas in the second half but the Dragons still managed to score goals.
The U14 Boys had no scheduled game.
The U15 Boys beat Forest United 3-1 at home. The Dragons came flying out of the blocks in this must-win game and looked like the team of old. A great all-round performance from the whole team.
