With half term depleting teams other clubs forfeiting their matches rather than fulfilling their fixtures in contrast to the Dragons who played on regardless:
The Firsts beat OIR 1-0 at home. A great team effort from the flagship Firsts who scored a fantastic team goal and kept OIR firmly shut out. The Dragons are breathing down the necks of third place with two games in hand.
The Blues drew 1-1 away at London Titans. The Dragons are enjoying a better run of form they plan to continue. .
The Old Dragonians were beaten 0-2 at home to Wishing Well Wanderers in Round 2 of the Divisional Cup. An entertaining tie that could have gone either way but a contentious penalty decision against the Old Ds set Wishing Well on their way through to the next round.
The U12 Girls played a season-first Double Header at home to Ealing Trailfinders, losing the first game 1-2 but winning the second 1-0. The Dragons battled hard in this gruelling encounter that, in the first game, went to the visitors. It could easily have gone wrong again after going down to 8 players, but the Dragons miraculously pulled off a win.
The U13 Girls had no match.
The U14 Girls beat Actonians 1-0 at home. A solid performance from the Dragons who, after scoring early in the game, coped with the immense Actonians pressure well to hang on for a hard fought and well-deserved victory.
The U15 Girls were awarded an automatic home win as the opposition didn’t fancy playing the Dragons.
The U17 Girls were beaten 3-7 at Limehouse away. With an under-resourced squad and no subs, the Dragons put up a tremendous fight and managed to score three which normally wins a game. Limehouse unfortunately scored more, but the Dragons can rest knowing they did many things right.
The New U11 Boys beat Belmont Bees 1-0 at home. The Dragons won this much awaited game, cancelled twice before, against their biggest challenger in the League. A brilliant team performance.
The U12 Boys won 3-0 at Princes Park away. The Dragons took another step closer to winning the League by beating closest rivals PP. A very mature performance from this young squad.
The U13 Boys lost at home to Magix. The Dragons were missing players due to half term but bravely played, despite knowing that Magix had discovered the only 6ft 4in 12-year-old in west London. The match was hard fought at times but the difference between the two sides was Magix’s giant who knows how to kick the ball like a rocket.
The U14 Boys lost 2-4 away at Pro FA. A tight game that, despite the result going to the home team, still leaves the Dragons at the top of the League by three points.
The U15 Boys were awarded an automatic home win as LPOSSA forfeited the game.
The U16 Boys were awarded an automatic away win as London Athletic could not raise a side.
The U17 Boys were beaten by Harrow Utd 0-4 at home. Missing two of the squad’s centre backs and the only goalie, this wasn’t the best week to go up against top of the division Harrow United. The Dragons stand-in keeper made a few fantastic saves to keep it close, but ultimately the task was too great.
The 10s trained in preparation for entering the League.
