Priory Celtic Round-up
In a much-reduced schedule the performance of the weekend came from the U14 Whites who, after a 3-0 away win at Carlton Town, have a realistic chance of staving off relegation, goals from Chris Neilson, Matt Hallam and Robbie Horsley securing the welcomed three points.
The U12 Greens put in a late push for promotion with a 9-3 win over Bingham Town, Thomas Hutton claiming a four-goal haul with the other goals shared out amongst the team.
The U12 Sunday squad lost at champions-elect Derwent Rangers but the U11 Greens claimed promotion without kicking a ball as results went their way.
Taylor Stubbs and Eddie Wylie scored for the U10s as they drew 2-2 with Burton Joyce and both the Saturday and Green U8 squads recorded good wins
Priory Green U7s travelled to Hucknall with a weakened side with players away for Easter. After falling behind in the first-half, they managed to get goals back when Harrison Fields scored and then Daniel Bailey got Priory’s second. Fields then got his second but Priory ended up on the wrong end of a 5-3 scoreline.
Fields won the parent’s player of the match and Dennis Breffitt won the manager’s award for his much-improved efforts in goal and pulling off some excellent saves.
|The only thing consistent about the senior team at the moment is their inconsistency, as they beat rivals GCS 6-1 only a week after a similar reversal, Connor Tuhig coming off the bench to score a hat-trick.
The veteran squad’s long wait for their first win of the season continues after a 2-0 loss at home to Brampton.
Meanwhile, Priory have had their FA Community Club Status renewed by the Notts FA, an acknowledgement of the dedication of all managers and volunteers at the club who now provide football for over 300 players of all ages.
The U14s ran out 12-0 winners against Clifton Aces. Chris Neilson scored five goals whilst Josh Whyte, Jake Edwards, Luke Parker (2), Connor Heatherington (2) and MOM Cole Hamer also found the net.
The U12 Blues overcame Team DNF 5-3, helped by a hat-trick for Lewis Williams, while the U10s faced Edwalton and scored thanks to some quick thinking at a free-kick from Jake Spittal and MOM Noah Hemsley.
The U9s played Wollaton and scored through Ossie Gregson and two from George Skevington, while the U8 Blues had goals from Max Boylon and Byron Hatton-Lowe against Southwell, George Moore parent’s MOM and Joshua Allen-Mee manager’s MOM.
The U7 Whites played Underwood Blue with goals from Sebastian Staley, Jack Bradshaw, Reuben Clowes, Adam Hodgson, Owen Hayes and Barney Pitts in a fine team display.
The U7 Blues played Trowell with Thomas Shirley and Alfie Kirk on target and Kyran Thompson MOM. A mini-tournament with Bagthorpe and Alfreton followed on Sunday with Ryan Garrett and Harvey Peacock scoring Colts’ goals.
