Well done our U18s – now equal top of the Premiership. The team are a tremendous tribute to the Dragons, football and indeed youths in general.
The U18s convincingly beat Regents & Tufnell 4-0 at home. Had the Dragons lost this could have been their last game – a potentially sad day for the players who have been together through triumphs and tribulations, some since they were 10 years old. This was another great team achievement – a hattrick from the Dragons star striker summed up their performance. On this win the Dragons should face a playoff with Hendon to determine which team is crowned the Premiership champions.
The U17s had no match
The U15 Boys beat FC Starz 2-1 at home. The Dragons were faced with a pitch at St Marks that made it difficult to play the possession football they have trained for – which worked to the advantage of the weaker FC Starz. The Dragons persevered with a fantastic touch and finish by the left winger to take the early lead and a winner by the Dragons leading goal scorer to scrape by with a 2 – 1 victory.
The U15 Girls had no match
The U14s had no match
The U13 Boys lost 1-3 to league leaders Harrow United at home. This was a much better match then the previous week against the strong Harrow side. For much of the match the result could have gone either way.
The U13 Girls had no match
The U12 boys beat Headstone Manor 2-1 away. Every week is tough and every week questions are asked about the character and determination of the Dragons. This week was no different as they had to dig in for victory to now sit at the top of the table with one match to go.
The U12 Girls had no match
The U11 Boys drew with Wealdstone. This was a cracker of a match with both goalies earning their non-existent fee. There was absolutely no doubt however that the Dragons had the most shots on goal and it was only the tremendous efforts of Wealdstone’s goalie that prevented a thumping Dragons win.
The U11 Girls lost to Islington Borough away in a close & intense game. The Dragons worked hard to match the very strong Islington side and, based upon the ovation they received on leaving the field, they achieved their objective.
The Under 10s trained and played as they are poised to be registered as the new Dragons U11s Team.
The Seniors had no match as they look forward to their quarter final of the Covid Cup
