Priory Celtic round-up.

Priory’s U9 Whites claimed the club’s first honours of the season when they secured runners-up place and promotion from Division Four.

However, they certainly kept the management team and parents on tenterhooks in a tense encounter that was settled by a Daniel Walker strike half way through the first half.

Priory’s mini-soccer teams agreed with their opponents to play on the all-weather surfaces which saw further great games.

James Lock scored two for the U10 Greens after his recent move from the Whites in a 5-2 win over Toton Tigers, Harvey Jefferies, Thomas Hutton and ConnorJones scoring the others.

The U9 Greens finished the autumn season in style with a 3-1 win over Wollaton Hall, Theo Simmonds with a brace and Jacob Gregory strike ensuring a more than deserved top five place.

In mini-soccer friendly action, Dylan Baker won the man-of-the-match award for the U7s , Eddie Wylie and Jamie Muir shared the award for the U8 Greens whilst Owen Scattergood won the award for the U8 whites.

In a top of the table clash, Priory’s U12s travelled to SouthwellCity knowing they had to win to stand any chance of promotion, and in a game that saw the lead change hands on numerous occasions a fantastic four-goal haul from Robbie Horsley saw Priory edge out Southwell by the odd goal in seven.

Sunday’s fixtures were washed away by the torrential downpours.
