SPARTAN SOUTH MIDLANDS LEAGUE DIVISION ONE
HAREFIELD UNITED 1 LONDON LIONS 2
With a familiar face returning from Aveley after a few seasons in the Isthmian League, Adam Bolle lined up at centre forward as Lions boosted their firepower with Kyte returning for his first start of the season.
This allowed Austin Lipman to return to his favoured No.10 role, and the all three started the game strongly and looked to be a real handful.
They combined to set up the opener for Kyte, who expertly chipped the keeper to open the score.
Prior to half-time, Lions and Kyte had doubled their tally when a foul resulted in a penalty which the Lions striker sent confidently into the top corner.
Lions were not quite as fluent after the interval, but almost wrapped it up with another penalty, but this time Kyte failed to convert when on for his hat-trick.
Harefield made a late charge by pulling one back but Lions held on.
Manager Andy Landesberg said: “We were not at our best, but sometimes you have to accept that we got out with three points and move on to the next one.
“Signing Adam Bolle is something that will make a difference to us as we look to keep building; and it was good to see Max back among the goals.
“Hopefully we can get one or two more back before long as well.”
