The U16’s beat Manor Youth away 8-3 in the League Cup. The omens were not auspicious. With the veteran Manager having to step in to rouse the initial bare 11 with no goal keeper he could have been apprehensive when Manor’s Manager broke the news that the “ref hadn’t turned up” but “luckily” one of their parents “could ref“. The U16’s are not however a normal team, there is within them a grit and steel which refuses to get crushed for long – reverses yes but giving in no. The match started evenly but gradually the Dragons pulled away to dominate and after a couple of hundred missed chances scored enough to win with ease. The improvement continues.
