Priory’s U10 Greens and U16s flew the flag for the club in their respective cup semi-finals on Sunday morning.

The U16s entertained Pelican FC for a place in the final which would see a repeat of last year’s showpiece against local neighbours Awsworth Villa.

In a tense and exciting encounter Priory just managed to hold on to an extra-time lead to win 2-1 and book their place in the final, but the U10 Greens couldn’t reproduce their heroics in previous rounds and succumbed to a 3-0 defeat away at higher-placed Riverside FC

The U18s didn’t have a game on Saturday but saw results in other games go against them, and they need to ensure they return to winning ways on Saturday when they entertain Wollaton Hall

There was action on Saturday though as both U8s played at home, Liam Garner wining the man of the match award for the Greens whilst the Whites manager gave the award to the whole team for a truly outstanding second-half performance again Vernon Colts.

In league action the U10s easily saw off rivals Edwalton Cavaliers 6-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Ben Dickinson plus goals from Joseph Dawson, Josh Leondhart and Thomas ‘TJ’ Syson

On a busy Sunday morning at the Leisure Centre the U9s easily brushed aside Sherwood FC 8-0 and now sit in second place on their league.

Chris Elvin’s U13s beat Gedling Town 4-1, goals from Joshua Bukraba, Nicholas Scott, Robbie Wallis and Jaylen Rhodes, however the U14s are still looking for their first win of the season after losing to Sherwood.

Chasing six points from their remaining three games to ensure they win the second division title, Priory’s U14 girls had everyone biting their nails in their performance against Clifton Girls.

Despite being in total control of the game the girls just couldn’t make their chances count, however their exerted pressure finally paid off with 15 minutes remaining when Lizzie Mathews eventually took her chance to put Priory in front.

Even then the girls where thankful for a great save from keeper Ellie Brown to maintain the lead, and two further goals from Jess Calder in the last five minutes gave the girls a comfortable win.

The ever improving U12s played their second game in four days on Sunday.

After narrowly losing by the odd goal to runaway leaders Gedling Town on Thursday evening they travelled to Wilford looking to get back to winning ways and two goals from Euan Owens and a strike from Marcus Worthington rewarded them with a 3-2 win and a further three points.
