Under-10s in an eight-goal thriller

On Saturday Priory’s U10 Whites had the opportunity to claim runners-up spot in the third Division.

Priory were on a seven-game unbeaten run, but opponents Cotgrave were also in good form and took an early lead.

Oliver Waite equalised with a wind assisted lob ten minutes later, but Cotgrave then re-took the lead twice more before Ben Atkin and Gabriel Dawson replied to make it 3-3.

Then, with two minutes to go, Jake Flowers pounced to give Priory a 4-3 lead, agonisingly though, with the last kick of the game, a speculative free-kick from inside the Cotgrave half ended up nestling in the Priory goal to finish the game at 4-4.

Saturday morning also saw all of Priory’s youngest age group hold training sessions against other local teams – both the Soccer School players and Greg Newbold’s new U7 Hoops team held their first session and all received medals as a memento of the day.

Whilst Nottingham Forest didn’t get the result they had hoped for in their last game of the season, 18 Priory players had a day they would never forget as they provided a Guard of Honour for the Leicester game (pictured)

Priory where nominated for the privilege by the Nottinghamshire FA for their success both on and off the pitch this season, and the club would like to thank Chris and Jenny Elvin who chaperoned the children throughout the afternoon.
