London Maccabi Lions Under Nine’s reached the fifth round of the County Cup after beating Stevenage Town Youth 3-1 after extra time.
Going up against a Stevenage side unbeaten in their respective league, Lions manager Lee Collins knew that this was going to be a massive test of character for his cubs.
Stevenage started extremely well pressing forward at every opportunity and they started to take control of the first half. Lions keeper Hadley Shapps needed to be in top form and he was up to the task, pushing a fine free kick past the post.
