Results W/E 12th January 2020

For whatever reason, some opposition teams defaulted to reduce the fixtures which were actually played:

The Firsts drew 0-0 with League leaders London Samurai away before losing on penalties in the Middlesex Cup Quarter Final. This was a fantastic team performance from the Dragons which made for an exciting match. They controlled the game to create three one on ones with Samurai’s goalie but alas none were slotted home. The Dragons then scored from a free kick only for it to be disallowed by the referee. Samurai had only one shot on goal in the entire game as they simply could not cope with the Dragons. At the final whistle it remained 0-0 and it was on to penalties which did not go as well as Dragons everywhere would have hoped.

The Reserves lost 0-3 to Wiseman West at home. The Dragons were hampered by a small squad and conceded 3 goals in the first half. A spirited second half performance saw the Dragons keep position, but they were unable to carve out opportunities. The Dragons did however restrict Wiseman from any further chances to score. There were positives to take from the match. 

The U17 Reds will be awarded 3 points as Abbey FC could not field a team.

The U17 Whites beat Ruislip Town 4-2 away. The Dragons kicked off the New Year with an excellent away win despite missing a few regulars. They put in excellent performances all over the pitch in the first half, taking the lead after 13 minutes and never looking back. A great start to 2020.

The U16s were robbed 0-3 by Regents and Tufnell Park in a disastrous game ruined by a thoroughly incompetent referee.  The referee gifted Regents, not by design, but by sheer ineptitude steeped in absolute certainty.  One might conclude that the Dragons management had reservations about the referee.

The U14 Boys lost 2-4 at home to a strong Celtic side. The Dragons took the lead before a few defensive lapses led to 4 consecutive Celtic goals.  The Dragons had good chances in the second half and regained the momentum but were only able to claw back one goal. The Dragons continue to look for the final 10% needed to take 3 points from the top sides in the division. 

The U14 Girls home match was called off by the opposition as they could not raise a team

The U13s match against Kodak away was called off by Kodak

The U12 Girls lost away to Ruislip Rangers. The Dragons were a little rusty in their first game of the year exacerbated by some forgetting their boots. Never the less the Dragons faced up to the challenge and played to the best of their ability. They battled on and showed great spirit by not giving up which lead to them being duly rewarded with a goal in the last five minutes of the game.  

The U12 Boys had no match

The U11 Boys lost against Pro FA away on a quagmire of a pitch in Barnet. This really was hard work as the Dragons squelched around in the mud.  

The U11 Girls were in good spirits as they trained with no match

The U10s trained in preparation to joining the League
