Coventry & Warwickshire U7 Trophy Event
Group Fixture (Italy Section)
Lions, without George Newbold, took part in a group fixture of the Coventry & Warwickshire U7 Trophy Event held at Kilsby Lane, being drawn against strong opposition in Baginton Lions, Alvis Juniors, Leamington Brakes Blue and Coventry Sphinx.
Lions started brightly winning their first two games. A solo effort from Aidan Lynch, a strong run out of defence and shot from Charlie Whittle and a clinical finish from Luke Chow brought the goals, backed up with good saves from Harry Marson. Elijah Robinson claimed a couple of assists.
Injuries disrupted the side for the third game, which was lost. It meant Lions had to win their last match to top the group. This they did thanks to Bobby Linnecor pressuring the goalie into scoring an own goal and Ollie Broad’s hard work in midfield.
Next Saturday Lions will play Rugby Town Eagles, who won their group, in a final decider.
