Priory Celtic Round-up
As the Young Elizabethan’s first phase of the new two-tier season nears its end, two Priory teams took great steps in their hunt for honours after Saturday’s games.
Matthew Dickinson rightly earned the man-of -the -match award after his six goals for the U10 Greens saw them move to second place in the league table after a 8-1 win against Holy Spirit, Bobby Watson and Alfie Hawksworth also chipping in with a goal each.
The result leaves the Greens needing a win from their visit to West Bridgford to ensure at least a runners-up spot.
The U13 Whites have already claimed the runners-up spot and promotion from Division Two after dispatching Hucknall Town 6-2, Matthew Hallam scoring five of the goals.
A Jake Lawes strike gave the U10 Whites a 1-0 win away at Ernehale, the result giving the boys the slimmest of chances of a top two spot.
Seeing out their last games of the first phase where both U11 teams; the Whites won 5-3 at home against Cotgrave in a really entertaining game, a hat-trick for Liam Garner assisted by single strikes from Ben Griffiths and Jake Flowers, whilst the Greens saw the curtain come down on their season losing by the odd goal in five at Clifton Aces.
In the young U7 mini-soccer section Priory’s men of the match were Aaron Walker for the Whites and Oscar Trigg for the Greens, while Tyler Beer won the award for the U8 Greens.
There were narrow 1-0 wins for both the U11 Hoops and U12s,
A Niall Storer effort, along with the award for player of the game, earned three welcome points for the Hoops at Team DNF, and the same result gave the U12s hope in their fight against relegation from Division One against WB Colts.
An exciting game took place in the U14 section, as eight goals were shared between Priory and Gotham Rangers, a Michael White hat-trick just not enough to claim three points.
Putting an end to a good run of results, the U13 Greens returned home from Hucknall Sports empty handed, an Elliot Bott effort in vain in a 4-1 defeat.
Two strikes each from James Horton and Chris Cieslak gave the U16s three more points in a 4-1 win at Heanor Pheonix, the result seeing them move up to sixth place in the table.
The points were shared between the U17s and Keyworth United who put on an exciting 3-3 draw.
Finally, the U13 Girls were no match for the Nottingham Forest girls team, losing their current unbeaten run, Caitlin Dickinson joining her brother on the scoresheet this weekend whilst Charlotte Basdell claimed girl of the game.
