The U16 Boys played a friendly against the U15 Boys in preparation for their respective upcoming quarter final matches in the Trophy Cup
The U14 Boys had no game.
The U13 Boys beat Harrow St Marys 3-2 at home in the League Trophy Cup. The Dragons started slowly and were punished, going into half time 0-2 down. In the second half, the Dragons roared into life and scored immediately to half their goal deficit before battling to equalise. As the minutes ticked by the Dragons pushed for a winner, and the high risk paid off as a third goal from their striker sent the Dragons into the Quarter Finals.
The U12 Boys and the U11 Boys had no matches.
The U10 Boys trained.
The U16 Girls did not play.
The U14 Girls were just beaten 1-3 away by Vicky Park Rangers. An intense game from the start with all to play for. The Dragons at times displayed good football, however mistakes gave Vicky Park the advantage. Despite not getting the result they wanted, this game doesn’t define the Dragons and what they are capable of – the squad will come back stronger and more determined than ever.
The U13 Girls beat Broomwood 3-2 at home. In a very evenly matched game, the Dragons just had the upper hand by half time and went into the break with a 1-0 lead. Broomwood then came out fighting but the Dragons kept their discipline, shape and movement to earn a well-deserved win.
The U12 Girls and the U11 Girls had no games.
The Firsts trained in preparation for their upcoming Cup Final
The Blues were narrowly beaten 1-2 at home by Ickenham. In this final game of the season the Dragons take positives into next season. The young Dragons took a deserved lead through a 25-yard strike which left the keeper stationary, only for Ickenham to equalise 5 minutes before the break. The 2nd period was an even affair which hinged on a Dragons sin bin with 8 minutes to play. Ickenham scored in injury time and went top of the table. The performance shows just how good this Blues team can be.
The Old Dragonians just lost 1-2 at home to Larkspur Rovers. The Old Ds completed their inaugural season in the MCFL Sunday league. This game was a microcosm of the season as a whole: competitive in all fixtures but just coming up short with the final result. A fine goal by the Dragons attacker gave the Old Ds an early lead only for Larkspur to equalise and score an 88th min penalty. The team has developed greatly over the season and look forward to further progression.
