SPARTAN SOUTH MIDLANDS LEAGUE DIVISION ONE
LONDON LIONS 4 LANGFORD 0
Lions were keen to put last week’s disappointment at Baldock behind them and continue their otherwise fine run of form.
It didn’t take long to get things started; after only 17 minutes Lipman added to his catalogue of free-kick goals in a Lions shirt when he found a gap in the rather porous wall and arrowed his effort into the bottom corner to open the scoring.
Lipman doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time – this time his effort from long-range, finding the top corner to send the hosts into the break in good shape.
The Lions were in control throughout, and Lipman completed a superb treble when Liron Mannie whipped in a cross from the right which the Lions midfielder glanced perfectly into the far corner.
Lipman's one-man show was disrupted when Lions scored a fourth near the end when the now beaten Langford got in a mess of their own making at the back, allowing Adam Bolle to slot home his 25th of the season.
All in all, a good day’s work which Lions can hopefully continue with two cup finals and a busy run-in to come.
