With the Easter holidays there were again fewer matches than usual as the Dragons notched up their third League Title this season:
The U17 Boys beat Acton Ealing Whistlers 3-2 at home. With only 12 players available and 4 fasting, the Dragons faced an uphill battle. After conceding from an early corner, the momentum shifted quickly with the Dragons putting in three quality goals to take the lead in the second half. AEW’s one goal wasn’t enough and the Dragons held on to the lead to emerge triumphant.
The U16 Boys beat Old Actonians 4-0 away in the Divisional Play Off to win the League Title. The Dragons were missing players against the OAs, who have a prolific scoring record, so had a monumental task ahead of them. To make matters worse, a Dragons defender committed a “professional foul” on OA’s striker who would have otherwise scored. The referee had no option but to show a red card leaving ten doughty Dragons fighting for survival. It is one of life’s unsolved mysteries as to how they managed it, but managed it they did, to score four very welcome goals and keep a clean sheet. A tremendous team effort to win the Title.
The U12 Boys beat Wealdstone 5-3 away in the League Trophy. Even though these mighty Dragons conceded three, which would usually lead to a loss, they found the back of their opponents net more times to win by the final whistle.
The Firsts were beaten 0-2 at Kodak away. Unfortunately, the Firsts were not able to build on last week’s victory despite having a fair share of chances. The Dragons could not convert while the home team were clinical when it mattered.
The Blues won 4-2 at home against West London Wanderers. A commanding win from the Blues who look to take this momentum into the end of the season.
The Old Dragonians did not play.
All other Youth Boys and Girls teams had no games.
