Runners-up spot for U13 Girls is secured

Priory Celtic


Priory’s U13 Girls, who have fought through the season with injuries and played the majority of the games with depleted squad resources, rounded off their season with a great 2-0 away win inspired by two goals from Bethany Garner at West Bridgford which saw them secure a runners-up place in Division Two.

There was cup semi-final heartbreak for the U10 Greens however, who, despite taking the lead through Matthew Dickinson, lost out to favourites Radcliffe Olympic.

The Greens can now concentrate on the league and remain in contention for a second promotion this season.

Chris Elvin will be more than proud of his U16 squad who are now in with a serious chance of promotion.

On Sunday they won 8-1 at second-placed Ripley Rangers.

Priory were winning 7-0 at half-time following a blistering display with goals from James Horton (3), Joe Shortland (2), Kris Cieslak and George Summers, Josh Hope added the eighth goal in the second half.

The U11 Whites need either of the two teams to drop points to claim any honours this season.

A comprehensive 3-0 home win over Ruddington Colt came thanks to two goals from Liam Garner and a superb strike from Jake Flowers to gain the three points.

The U11 Greens had the chance to go top of Division Six but lost 6-2 at Stapleford Villa and the Sunday U11 Hoops narrowly lost the local derby 2-1 at Underwood Villa.

In mini-soccer friendly action, Oscar Trigg won the man-of-the-match award for the U7 Greens whilst Tyler Beer claimed the award for the U8 Whites and Sam Knowles won for the U8 Hoops.

Rounding up the results from a reduced fixture list, the U14s lost at home to Netherfield Colts whilst the U13 Greens, who are finding life hard after promotion earlier this season, never disappoint in their high scoring games as they lost 5-2 at Sandiacre on this occasion, Elliot Bott and Christopher Husskison scoring for Priory.

The U10 Whites will just want to see the end of the campaign after defeat at home to Rolls Royce Leisure, whilst the U9s claimed a decent point in a 2-2 draw with Hucknall Sports, Taylor Stubbs and Ben Spencer both on the scoresheet with Luke Garton claiming the man-of-the-match award.

Meanwhile, Priory’s soccer school for boys and girls of all ability has now grown into two sections (the Greens and the Whites) and continues to take place each Wednesday at the Leisure Centre in Kimberley between 6-7pm on the new 3G pitches.
