The U16 Whites walloped Pinner United 6-0 at home. With a depleted squad due to half term absentees, the Dragons were apprehensive about facing a team they had only managed to draw with a few weeks ago when they had had a full squad players to choose from. The Dragons fans needn’t have worried. Early nerves were calmed when the Dragons scored in the opening 3 minutes, with a deft, glancing header from a corner. From then on the Dragons never looked back and simply swept the visitors aside with a commanding display to register their third consecutive win in all competitions. Six different Dragons got their names on the scoresheet but most pleasing of all was that elusive clean sheet, the first of the season.
The U16 Reds drew 3 – 3 with Celtic away. After going 3-0 up, with only 15 minutes to go, the Dragons contributed to their downfall as they then conceded three sloppy goals. There has been a drop in form for the Dragons the last two games but their fans are sure they will come back stronger next week.
The U18s in the Premiership just lost 3-5 at home to Kodak.
This last game mirrored the Dragons season as they played the better football with their midfielder twice jinking in from the left and unleashing brilliant shots from outside the box only to see the bar rattled. A swift counter attack saw Kodak go ahead, a further goal from a corner and then a sublimely taken goal saw Kodak go 3 up. A flowing move saw the Dragons pull a goal back before the half. Two further Kodak goals in the second half saw the Dragons go 1-5 down. It was then that the Dragons fighting spirit showed, as both teams tired, a passing move cut through Kodak, to be followed by a great cross which left the Dragons striker to tap in. Shortly after the Dragons scored again and the comeback was on. Unfortunately, time ran out as Kodak defended to the last ditch.
