Priory Celtic Round-up
Despite the elements doing their best to hamper the weekend’s games there was plenty of action centred on the 3G pitch at Kimberley Leisure Centre.
First up were the U10 Whites who are in desperate need of a win and will have to wait a further week after a 2-1 reversal to Aslockton Cranmers.
The U9s drew 1-1 with Attenborough Colts, the lively Sammy Shah scoring the equaliser for Priory.
The U8 Greens entertained Carlton Town in a great game that did its best to keep the large crowd warm. Notts FA head of Charter Standard, Barry Shackley, attended and praised all involved in the match.
Finally the U11 Whites took on Dunkirk Colts knowing a win would place them near the top of Division Three, but it didn’t look like it was going to go according to plan when Dunkirk scored first.
Priory soon settled though and goals from Liam Garner and Oliver Waite (two each), a rare headed goal from Jake Flowers plus further goals from Jack Shaw and man-of-the-match Ed Flynn saw Priory go to the top of the league.
The U10 Greens’ 12 match unbeaten run came to an end at Radcliffe as despite a Tom Ellis man-of-the-match performance they suffered a 3-0 loss.
Moving onto Sunday’s results, the U14s shared the points with Ravenshead Reds, Ben Elvey and a first goal of the season from Kai Brady securing a 2-2 draw.
The U11 Hoops crashed to a 3-0 home defeat against Team DNF and both U7 teams put in great displays, Archie Watson winning the man-of-the-match award for the Green squad.
Perfomance of the day came from the U8 Hoops who travelled to Gedling.
Josh Poxon scored a hat-trick which saw Dave Tatum’s side put in their best performance since their creation before Christmas.
