We got a real team performance, says Kyte

Shirley Park's promotion hopes were dealt a blow as they were beaten by rivals Lions B at Norseman FC.
Last week's scorers did the business again for Jamie Kyte's men, with top-scorer James Gold (2) and Jonny Cutter seeing them home.
Striker Saul Conway registered for Shirley.
Delighted Lions boss Jamie Kyte told JC Sport: "It was another great performance from all the boys. We needed a team performance and that's what we got. We kept Kent quiet and exposed them in the first 15 to take an early two-goal lead. Once again we were unlucky not to get a few more, Dan Green hit the post and Henry Ziff hit the crossbar.
"We now look forward to our next game against Camden. Rumours are they've signed a new keeper and I'm looking forward to our two hotshots Cutter and Gold testing him."
Shirley Park boss Dave Lusman told JC Sport: "It was a bad day at the races for Park. Confusion at the beginning of the game lead to us playing on a junior pitch at Norseman which was tiny. It didn't help either teams as no player had more then a second on the ball. It really didn't suit us - there was no space to exploit or play.
"Credit to Lions as the win was deserved; we had are chances but their keeper was excellent and defensive pairing at the back kept Jamie Kent and Saul at bay.
"Our title push has come to an end as it's far to late for us with to many points dropped."
