Match Report

It's been a while, but I'm pleased to report on a Lions win! The boys ran out deserved 3-1 winners against Walsall Wood Saints Wasps.

In difficult conditions, the boys were on top from the start. Despite playing against the wind, the Lions dominated the first half, going close on several occasions. It was therefore a bit of a surprise to go into half time trailing by a single goal.

The second half was pretty much one way traffic, with chances coming and going. In the end, goals from Harrison (2) and Jayan gave us the win

Daniel - more safe handling, great kicking and one top drawer save. A standard morning for our Number 1.

Paddy - nothing got past him all game. Solid in the tackle and even popped up in the opposition box a couple of times!

Jakey - won everything. Read the game really well and had one long range pile driver go narrowly over

Louis - as above. Really determined tackling at CB and LB. Another top performance

Philip - really good on the floor and in the air and some great passing to set up some of our attacks

Noah - lightning quick down the wing. Had a one on one that was deflected wide. Set up several chances with some great crosses

Will - a captains performance. Won plenty of ball and linked u well with defence and the forwards

Ethan - showed his versatility, playing CMF and RB. Won plenty of tackles

Harrison - caused the Walsall defence problems all morning. May not have been the prettiest of goals, but did brilliantly to grab a brace

Luke - a really lively performance that only lacked a deserved goal. One terrific volley that deserved better

Jayan - great to see Jayan back in the goals. His live wire performance certainly deserved one

Mak - linked well with Jayan, Luke and Harrison on a dominant second half performance........possibly deserved a penalty in the first half?

Well done boys. More performance like this and you'll get the results you deserve.
