New Look 10's Get Underway
By Chris Flower
Adriel With First Goal Of The Season
First fixture back at the park saw a new look dragons side get their first run out in what would prove to be a very entertaining first game of the season against Wandgas.
The boys made a great start and quickly set out to punish the away side early with Hubert and Jayden testing the keeper with some decent long range efforts, swiftly followed by a good piece of individual skill from Ryan as he managed to split the defence for Adriel to get the opener with a cool finish. 1-0 at half time.
Despite the greens dominating the first half an early long range clearance managed to catch the wind and rifled over Luca's head with a cruel bounce making it 1-1, not a fair reflection of the game at this point as Luca made some comfortable saves to keep the score at 1-0. The gaffer decided to make a few subs which introduced the newest members of the team Alfie, Diyar and Mirun who quickly got on the ball in wide area's delivering tricky crosses for the keeper to deal with and we again dominated but couldn't make our chances count with two goal line scraps which on another day could have been given but it wasn't to be.
The later stages of the second half see our defence come under some pressure as Wangas tried to steal the win but we stood strong as Callum,Kellany,Abdulrahman and Abdul mopped up and played out from the back with great composure.
Thanks to Wandgas for a good game this morning and thank you to our ref Danny Taylor. As always thank you to the parents for your continued support.
See you all next week as we welcome Motspur Park
Squad: Luca,Callum,Kellany,Abdulrahman,Abdul H,Alfie,Ryan,Mirun,Hubert,Diyar,Jayden and Adriel
