Memorial Park Whites U9 - 4
EB Lions Blues U9 - 0
EB Lions were out of the blocks quickly with David Wood, Connor Tough and Robert Bunting (captain) marshalling the midfield well.
They should have gone into the break in front, but found themselves a goal down despite dominating play.
The second half saw a great debut performance from Lee Saunders, who combined well with Jack Reynolds on the left. Bradley Hicks and Luke Jearrad in defence both put in a tremendous tough tackling display.
Upfront, Matthew Kennel) ran tirelessly creating chances continually testing the opposition's goalie. Performance of the day went to the EB Lions goalkeeper MoM Ollie Mulcahy who commanded his area well and produced some truly outstanding saves.
With such a great team performance the EB Lions will find this defeat hard to swallow; but they will take heart from their overall efforts, and with continued hard work, dedication and some long overdue luck they will turn the tide.

This was a match that the Lions needed to win to improve their chance of getting into Division 1.
From the start Lions looked the stronger team and after 10 minutes Hattie French scored after some fine passing and movement.
At half time it was 1-0 but could have been far more. After the break Lions got an early goal from Bethan Woolsey after a long throw from French. With six minutes remaining Megan Viljoen scored their third after a strong run and then in the last minute Letchworth broke through and scored.
Lions produced some good play throughout the match, controlling midfield with Darcy Ashby, Katy Thiel, GoM Devon Ferguson and Eden Scott putting in some very strong performances.
