Lions White won the relegation six-pointer in style - romping past fellow strugglers Camden 4-1.

A double from Ben Winters and further strikes from Joel Lassman and James Belchak completed a good morning's work for LML.

Richard Silver grabbed the consolation for a Camden team who finished with 10 men.

Lions assistant-manager Jonathan Meltzer told JC Sport: "It was a good performance and a pleasure to play a game after the weather being so disruptive this year. David [Pollock] and I are really proud how a group of 16 and 17-year-olds have got on with men’s football after joining the MGBSFL halfway through the season.

"It’s fantastic to see experience players such as James Gershfield, Joel Lassman and Peter Lazard support these boys on the pitch and we are creating strong foundations for the future of Lions. It’s lovely to see the squad getting results as-well as experience."

Camden boss Nick Kagan told JC Sport: "I'm disappointed as we didn't give a good account of ourselves and our performance was a real step backwards from Raiders - Beaten and outfought by the better team in the first half, a sending off knocked the stuffing out of us early in the second.

"There's some soul searching to do this week for all of us - this is the first season we have experienced where things haven't been going our way, and I think we have to adjust our style of play and general attitude to start scrapping for everything.

"On the sending off, the player involved has never been booked before - he's not the type of person to strike another player, and the decision was totally wrong - the ref was conned by some shameful Lions playacting. Unfortunately, it's going to rob of us of a key player for the rest of the season – the last thing we need."
