Priory Celtic round-up
Result of the weekend went to the U13 Girls who returned from Holy Spirit FC with three points after a fine 6-2 win.
In the rain and the mud Priory raced to an early two-goal lead only for Holy Spirit to pull level before half-time, then a blistering 20 minutes saw the girls incredibly score four more times to secure the points.
The goals were scored by Megan Ashton, Skye Storer and a hat-trick for Beth Garner, however all the players deserved credit for a great performance, girl of the game going to Caitlin Dickinson.
After the heavy rain on Saturday evening the pitches at Kimberley Leisure Centre where unplayable which meant the U12, U13 Green and U16 games where postponed but the new all-weather pitches lived up to their name and remained playable, allowing the U7 teams to play their round robin games against the two Keyworth United teams.
Evie Wharton and Leonardo Formosa claimed the player of the match awards.
The rain couldn’t save both the U14s who lost 7-2 at Manor FC, Luke Marshall and a debut goal and Michael White with the consolation, or the U11 Hoops who made the tough trip to high-flying Karamia FC returning pointless after a 7-1 reversal.
On Saturday both U10 sides continued their rich vein of form.
In Division Four the Greens moved up to second place with a workmanlike performance beating Attenborough Colts 2-0, Bobby Watson and Theo Simmonds scoring the goals with a man -of-the-match performance from Josh Caley.
The Whites claimed three points at Toton Tigers with a 3-1 win, Tommy Reeves, Josh Wakelin and Ben Howarth all scoring.
The improving U9s narrowly lost both their round robin games by a solitary goal, 1-0 to Wollaton Hall FC and 2-1 to Burton Joyce – Ben Spencer claiming his first for the club.
The U13 Whites’ push for promotion suffered a setback when rivals Southwell City triumphed 3-2, Robbie Horsely and Matthew Hallam scoring for Priory.
Both U11 teams put in much-improved performances though both narrowly lost, the Greens going down 1-0 to Burton Joyce whilst the Whites couldn’t hold on to a 2-1 lead in a great local derby at Moorgreen, eventually losing 3-2.
Wrapping up the weekend’s action the U17s took advantage of teams around them having their games postponed due to the weather by demolishing Sherwood FC 11-2 and remaining at the top of Division three, Kaylum Mitchell scoring four of the goals.
The senior team once again took part in a goal-fest of a game losing 7-4 at home to Woodborough Celtic.
This weekend is likely to see a much-reduced fixture schedule due to the half-term school holidays.
