After what appeared to be a lifetime ago, the Tigers were finally back at the Lane for a match against Beacon FC. If you wanted to see a game that virtually had everything in it, then this was the one!
The Tigers started quite confidently and were soon passing the ball around, however some sloppy defending left the Tigers 1-0 down. This group of young players are not like the Tigers of old and shortly before halftime Alex sent Joshua through to get a deserved equaliser to make it 1-1.
After a very positive team talk where we asked the boys to change a few things tactically at corners both offensively and defensively the boys took to the 2nd half. However another defensive slip allowed Beacon's in to make it 2-1. But these Tigers don't let their heads drop and straight from kick off the Tigers worked the ball and a shot from Blue eventually fell to Alex who calmly tapped the ball over the line for his 10th goal of the season.
A freezing cold afternoon kick off for the young Lions today; as soon as we could we got the boys warming up, wasn’t long before they were hyped up and raring to go!
The game started at a frantic pace, some of the Lions football was fantastic, I counted one passing move of 9 passes and then we got a shot off. Our opponents goal was living a charmed life in the first half with the crossbar and post being hit at least 3 times, we finally managed to beat the Valliant’s keeper who was having a great game through Marcelo with yet another fantastic passing move.
Half time 1-0 to the Lions.

U10 Tigers made the relatively short trip to Hillyfielders for an early KO.
On a very muddy, slippy pitch the Tigers played their passing game from the off & it it wasn't long before Matthew sent Joshua off to make it 1-0. The Tigers continued their pass & move football, but however found a goalkeeper on his game.
Shortly before halftime a long kick from their keeper wasn't dealt with by the Tigers defence, which resulted with the equaliser in off the post
