The U16’s lost 2-4 away to Hayes and Yeading in the League Cup. This was a much better performance from the Dragons against the top of the Premiership side. Yeading pulled 2 goals ahead before the resilient Dragons drew level. Disaster then struck as Yeading were awarded a penalty in the most dubious of circumstances. The Dragons were finally undone when the howling gale swept ball and Yeading the length of the pitch to score against the run of play. This game was probably the tipping point for the Dragons – they will get much better from here on in.
