Bull clinches it for London Maccabi Lions

An extra time strike from Dylan Bull helped London Maccabi Lions Under Nine's clinch the Watford Friendly League Cup after a thrilling 2-1 win over Panathinaikos.

Captain Joey Gold put the Lions ahead deep into the second half but Panathainakos, who had beaten the Lions twice this season, replied with virtually the last kick of normal time.

With keeper Hadley Shapps producing heroics at one end, it was left to Bull to convert a Joe Leslie cross at the far post to spark wild celebrations.

Lions manager Lee Collins said: "This has been an amazing first season for this team and to come away with a trophy shows how good this team can be in the next few years.

"They love playing together and they are the smallest squad in the league. I'm a really proud manager today. It's great for the boys and most of all the club as a whole."
