Not a weekend to remember for the club. A win for the 5th XI and a draw for the 2nd XI the highlights.
Firstly, credit to Old Lyonians who won their first game of the season vs. our ones. An odd game, we quickly went 2-0 down despite numerous opportunities for us to go ahead, before clawing our way back to 2-2. Astonishingly – like the boy who cried wolf – genuine OGs via Charlie Johnson assists again this week. These shots are so heinous, how they creep in I don’t know. Great corner for the first one, mind.
OL hit back in very quick succession scoring twice, before Phil was sinbinned for dissent, and they grabbed another in that time. Despite carving out more chances, we couldn’t match the desire that OL showed. Onto next week.
Very little information on the 2nd XI game but a draw a creditable result. Similarly for the 4th XI who sadly bow out of the AFA Cup. The 3rd XI were hard done by in their game, and succumbed to defeat despite leading at half time. But a good win for the 5th XI, the goal from Sonny sealing that.
The Vets had a game this weekend, looking to retain the LFFA Cup. The score doesn’t reflect the story of the match, but Poly took their chances and we didn’t. A lovely strike from Nick beating two men before driving one in from 30 yards out.
A weekend to bounce back from and it starts at training which still runs from 7.30pm at Battersea All Weather. Make your way there and show your desire.
