Today’s Results.

Goals galore at the Hood but not for the 1s who lost 3-1 to Civil Service (Jonny scored and shared MOM with Crusher) Vanny DOD.

2s won an AFA Inter Cup game at HSBC 4-2 AET 2-2 FT. Chas hat trick and Ackers. Chas MOM and Sherbs DOD for being late. His chauffeur turned up late.
4s won 5-3 Aaron Hatrick.
6s and 7s both won yes but both 11-0 For the 6s Tony scored 6 and for the 7s Ryan got 4 and was MOM but Billy scored 2 but still got DOD for missing from 2yds (harsh)

3s and 5s had no fixture this weekend.

Pics mainly from 2s but also the Hood bar where things are warming up for quiz. Should be a good night.!!!!!

So onto the results from today then.

1s lost 3-2 to Alleyn Old Boys in the AFA CUP, despite a brace from Sam Harvey.
2s suffered their first defeat of the season, going down 2-1 at Norseman 2s.
3s produced an inspired display to beat Nottsborough 2-1 – Tom Benham & Dan Kelly the goalscoring heroes. Celebration video posted earlier (a must-watch)
4s were very unlucky to go down 3-2 at Dorkinians 4s in the Cup, having led 2-1.
In the big showdown of the Merton 5s & 6s, it was Kev’s charges who did the business, putting the 5s to the sword with a 4-1 win. One sad feature of the game was a bad knee injury to Clive (pictured). Get well soon matey.
As for the 7s, an “experienced” team put in a good performance against Corinthian Casuals U21s in the SAL Cup, eventually going down 4-1. They’ll be a force in the league though.

Well done to all, and let’s keep the good momentum going into next weekend (which is also quiz night!).

A breathless day of football; goals aplenty, and some remarkable results to boot (just one defeat across the club in 90 mins, in fact). Here goes:

1s beat West Wickham in the AFA SURREY CUP. 2-2 at full time, but snaffled the penalty shootout 4-2 (Clappers nudging in the final penalty)
2s drew 1-1 with Cambridge Heath 2s; Gabby Draghici scoring a worldie/benefiting from a keeper howler
Grab a beer before this one… the 3s game finished 4-4 during normal time against Old Finchleians 4s. At the end of extra time, it was 6-6!! Alas, the penalty shootout went awry (0-3), but cracking effort from the 3s.
4s drew 2-2 at IBIS Eagles 5s after being 2-0 down, with stand-in keeper veteran John Gridley saving a penalty
5s picked up their first win of the season, coming back to win 2-1 against HSBC 5s
6s drew 3-3 against City of London 3s after some confusion about KO times. Another cliffhanger!
7s went down 7-1 to a very strong Old Salesians 3s

Really great effort all round lads!

4s having a few Beers with the Boys After playing Football Today, we Drew 2-2 and I was the hero as I Saved A Penalty after My son Danny Gridley hacked someone down ( he owes me One! )

Great camaraderie, good humour & team spirit show by Old Lyonians FC yesterday. After missing a near open goal to equalise and gain a point, the forward (in the dressing room) had his clothes taken away ! He was then made to come into the Merton bar wearing only his undies !
SHARON enjoyed it & VAL gave him an large portion of pasta !
nice to see the spirit of our football is still going strong…SAL still the best ….

Labourers required

Your club needs you! The committee has signed off on improving the patio area outside our beloved clubhouse. This initiative has been very generously subsidised by the Papanastasiou family, in memory of Nick, who we sadly lost last year.

In order to do this, we need your help. Our man Peter Kemp is the brains behind the operation, has it all worked out, and will be directing us on the day. But we could use another specialist or two, and definitely need willing labourers to help with things like shifting dirt in wheelbarrows, laying slabs, digging etc etc. We will be doing this project (weather permitting) on the following 2 days, starting at about 10am:

Sunday 8 October
Sunday 15 October

Are you available to help on both/either date?
