Whites secure a vital win at high-flying Dunkirk

A BUSY weekend for Priory’s teams kicked off with a vital 2-1 away win for the U10 whites away at high flying Dunkirk with goals from Joshua Whyte and Alexander Wright

That kept the Whites’ fantastic run going and their concerted promotion push on track.

Andy Draper’s U18s remained top of the table after a nail-biting 3-2 win over Wollaton Hall U18s.

Despite starting the match with only ten players, goals from Josh Brown, Jamie Finn and Josh Broad were just enough to see them home.

With seven games to play the U18s now have a realistic chance of silverware this season.

Sunday saw a 1-0 win for the U10 Greens in an entertaining match against mid-table Bulwell Rangers, the result keeping the boys in pole position for the championship.

There was a local derby between Priory and Kimberley Miners Welfare in the U14 age group – bragging rights going to the Welfare after a 6-2 victory.

Both Priory’s girls teams had vital games. The U14s, needing three points against bottom-of-the table West Bridgford, certainly made hard work of securing victory until a three goal blitz in the second half secured a 4-1 win.

The girls now need to beat Mansfield next week to win the title.

The U15 girls sought revenge over Lincoln City after being dumped out of the cup by them last month, but despite scoring in the first minute through Maisie Clifton the girls couldn’t hold on but will take deserved credit for gaining a point. With results going their way they could now still take the runners up slot in the first division.

In the remaining games on Sunday, the U11s made it 11 wins out of 11 with a 5-1 win at Clifton FC with goals from Agostinho, Bagguley, Jones, Marshall and Fowlkes-Stevenson, whilst the U12s narrowly lost 3-2 at Aspley Beacon.

The U13s lost 3-0 at home to top-of-the-table Gedling Town, while the U8s travelled to Gotham for a top versus second encounter but fell to a 4-0 defeat.
