Priory Whites are in great form again

On a very busy weekend for Priory the young U8s kicked off proceedings with two friendly games.

The Whites entertained Toton FC with Ben Howarth claiming the man of the match award whilst the Greens travelled to Wollaton where Ellis Burrows scooped the award.

Both of Priory’s U9 sides kept their 100 per cent records though in contrasting results.

For the second week running the Whites scored double figures in beating West Bridgford 10-1, with hat-tricks from Ben Griffiths and Jake Flowers amongst other scorers, while the Greens had to battle hard at FC Cavaliers, George Simpson scoring the only goal in a tense encounter.

In a local derby game on Sunday Priory’s U10s lost to local neighbours Moorgreen 6-1 and the U12s couldn’t hold onto a 3-1 lead away at Keyworth, finally losing 4-3 against last year’s Division One runners up

There were satisfactory results for both U11 teams. A comprehensive 5-2 win for the Whites on Saturday saw Chris Neilson scoring two and there was an emphatic 8-2 away win for the Greens at Clifton Aces, Tommy Smith and Christopher Huskinson both scoring hat-tricks with Cory Wren notching the other two.

It was six points in four days for Rob Evans’ U13s as a win by the odd goal in five under the floodlights on Thursday night against St Ann’s was followed by a 7-2 thumping of Wilford Lions on Sunday morning.

There was no such luck for either of the U14 or 15s with both tasting defeat, the U15s losing at East Leake and though a Nicholas Scott effort gave the U14s the lead they finally fell 3-1 at home to Gedling Town.

Result of the weekend though goes to the U17s who played host to Wollaton Hall U18s, where a man of the match performance by keeper Eric Towle and two fantastic strikes from Arash Abdollah and Michael Thomas gave the green and whites a 2-1 win and kept them unbeaten this season.

All three Priory Girls teams were in action on Sunday morning.

Strikes from Ellie-Rae Richardson and Lauren Turner ensured the U16s where back to winning ways by disposing of Wollaton Hall and the U12s carried on their strong start to the season by dispatching Welbeck Welfare 10-1.

The U11s though had a baptism of fire in their first ever league game when they met Derby County, and though outplayed at times the girls, led by Bethany Garner, never let their heads down and showed great spirit.
