Priory Celtic round-up.

In a quiet weekend only one Priory team found themselves in league action due to the mini-break taken for the half-term holidays.

The U15s faced a tough task at Stanton Ilkeston, who currently sit joint top of Division Three.

Despite plenty of possession and creating chances to open the scoring in the first-half the form book was the winner as Stanton applied pressure throughout the second-half giving them a comfortable win.

Three mini-soccer teams took advantage of the break to play in friendly games.

The U7s and U10 Whites both played Sandiacre Town. The U7s’ man-of-the-match was Lucas Ellis whilst the U10s won 2-0 with goals from TG and a Zehn Rana strike. Man-of-the-match Niall Storer made some excellent saves and Will Moore made his debut and showed some nice touches.

The U9 Greens headed to West Bridgford Dynamos for their friendly game in which eight goals where shared in a 4-4 draw.

The scorers were Tom Ellis, Thomas Penney, Theo Simmonds and Thomas Marshall, who also claimed the man-of-the-match award.
