Lions mauled again

    Spartan South Midlands League Division One
    Langford 5 London Lions 2
    Tony Gold, manager of London Lions, believes that the 5-2 scoreline flatter Langford after his troops suffered their third defeat on the spin.

    Gold said: "The result certainly did not reflect the performance with Lions the better footballing side over the 90 minutes.

    "However, inexperience from the younger members of the side, and four individual mistakes for four of the five Langford goals, meant Lions left Henlow with nothing to show for their efforts."

    Ben Ellis and Max Kyte notched for Lions but the two goals were nothing more then mere consolation.

    Gold said: "I will continue to back the players and give them all the confidence and encouragement I can, providing they continue to play the football they played today giving maximum effort as they did.

    "The result was unfortunate. We were punished because we made four awful individual mistakes and we can’t expect to win games if we continue to make those mistakes.

    “The 5-2 scoreline certainly flattered Langford a little because we created enough chances to at least take a point.

    "However, in the end, the difference between the two sides were that they were far more clinical at both ends of the pitch.

    “We are lacking an abundance of quality at the moment and that is obviously plain to see, and certainly only natural given the players we have lost over the summer.

    "In order to compensate, we must continue to work hard and harder as a team and with a little more luck and composure in defence and up top we will get back to winning ways."

    Lions: Declan Green, Danny Berg, Kyle Bentwood, Adam Myeroff, Max Kyte, Ben Sollosi, Ben Lampert, Daniel Stanton, Ben Joseph, Dean Nyman, Ben Ellis
