The Blue half of Rowley Lane is smiling following victory in the inter-club derby over the Whites.

With manager Jamie Kyte again, David Kyte took charge of LML Blue and his team came up trumps, with a solid first win in the over a young White side.

Goalkeeper David Kosky marked his return to action after a week away with another clean sheet, while a 16-year-old debutant Jack Davis produced a strong performance at right-back supporting Matt Green, the returning Adam Littas and the ever-reliable Adam Kosky.

A holding midfield duo of Richard Gold and Max Kyte dominated the centre of the park, with Oli Sade, Harry Davis and Will Beresford allowed freer roles with the former two scoring the second and first goals respectively in a first half that could have seen many more had it not been for the excellent keeping of Oli Colmans making his debut for the Lions whites.

Up front Raph Khalili was a constant threat and his efforts really deserved a goal, but alas it was not to be.

Second-half sub Sam Senchal, on for injured Littas, kept the Blues solid and a young White Lions had some good performances, particularly in the second half with promising performances from Sam Shooter leading the attack and Jamie Murray at full-back.

LML's David Kyte told JC Sport: "Three points were welcome to the Blue lions who have a long season ahead but with performances like this there is some light at the end of the tunnel."
