Priory Celtic round-up
It would appear the race for the U18 Division Two championship is now a two horse race after Priory’s comprehensive 5-2 win away at Southwell on Sunday morning.
Two goals and a man of the match performance from Angus Wright set them on the way and with rivals Sandiacre Town only managing a draw the title looks now like it’s between Priory and season-long rivals Aslockton.
There are four games to go and the game between the two teams is scheduled for the last match of the season.
Playing their first game this year, the U16s claimed three points at home to Mackworth, Joseph Bukraba (2) and James Horton claiming the goals, whilst in the girls league section the U13s, who also travelled to Southwell, went down 2-1 despite playing with eight players for the majority of the game.
Rounding up Sunday’s action, the U7 Whites travelled to WB Colts, Jeevan Mann winning the man of the match award for the first time and Archie Watson won the award for the U7 Greens.
In YEL league action the U14s lost 4-1 away at Gotham Rangers whilst the U13 Greens are finding life hard after promotion losing 6-2 at home to Long Eaton United, Elliot Bolt and Joshua Wright on the scoresheet for Adrian Lawes’ side.
The game involving the U12 team had to be cut short due by eight minutes to a serious injury to one of Radcliffe Olympics players. In true sporting fashion Priory, losing 3-1, allowed the result to stand ensuring the Radcliffe player was treated by the emergency services,
The U11 Hoops also lost to Radcliffe Olympic, 4-0, Niall Storer putting in a man of the match display, and the U8 Hoops awarded the man of the match award to Ethan Coy on his debut after their game at Rolls Royce.
Amongst the games played on Saturday there were two exciting encounters that ended 2-2.
The first game played at Kimberley Leisure Centre saw the U11 Whites take a two-goal lead through a brace from Liam Garner only for their opponents Southwell City to score twice from free-kicks to level the game.
A freak goal direct from a corner cost Priory U13 Whites three points in their home match with Radcliffe, while two goals from Tom Hutton were in vain as the U11 Greens lost 4-2 away at West Bridgford Colts.
The U11 Whites went down 4-0 to champions elect West Bridgford Rossoneri.
Finally, the U9s put in their best performance of the year with a great 7-3 win away at Burton Joyce, Jake Dawes stealing the show with a five star haul to aid the victory.
