Another weekend of mostly called off matches left only a few Dragons on the pitch whilst recording more wins that losses as oppositions defaulted:
The Boys U12s, U13s and U14s oppositions could not raise teams to give the Dragons three wins without the trouble of lifting a boot.
The U12 Girls lost at home in the quarter final of the Cup against C & K Basildon. The Dragons began in good spirits, but their good humour was smothered by Basildon’s rather ruthless approach. Your correspondent’s maths is not quite up to calculating the score but suffice it to say with more application the Dragons might have equalled the record loss secured by the U15 Boys ten years ago. The Dragons later reflected on their team and individual performances and will take the match as a learning experience. As the ever-ebullient Manager said, “Onwards and Upwards”.
The U16 Boys lost away to Brentham Colts 2-5. After having dug two players out of their pits the Dragons had a bare team to face a very strong outfit. Playing at home Brentham had plenty of subs to refresh their side in the fairly bleak conditions. Nevertheless, the Dragons played energetically with moments of brilliance but were let down by two unfairly disallowed goals.
All the other matches were called off as pitches were either waterlogged or the oppositions could not raise a team
