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 ….

5th Team 2017 – 18

Friendly Results – 02.09.2017

The 1s ran into a very strong West Wickham side who beat us 5-1 scoring some terrific goals and playing some really good passing football. We will improve on this. Some good performances from our lads Vanny, Siri, Rat, Sam, Harrison and many more but with so many new faces we need a little more time to gel but very promising. West Wickham is a lovely place to go even if you do lose 5-1 and it was an enjoyable afternoon. Thanks for the game !!!

Merton FC New Season Club Day – 26.08.17

On Saturday 26th August from 2pm, we’ll be having pre-season friendlies and an inter-club game. All games will be at the Hood (and possibly Raynes Park too if we can’t get two pitches). Given that we’ll all be in the vicinity of the Hood that day, our resident BBQ-master Darren Avey will be working his magic once again – for your benefit. So please do come on down chaps. Food will likely be served around 5pm, bar will be buzzing and the Man U vs Leicester will be on telly. A good old jolly to start the season! It will also be a good time to pay your membership.

Friendly Results – 12.08.17

Todays Results

The 1s/2s lost 2 games at Chiswick to Poly 1s/2s. The first 5-2 and the second 3-1. Some good football in two good pre season games. Poly are a good club and very strong. DQ (pic) scored all our goals, Gubby (pic) kept goal in both matches and was then off to T&M to keep for the 3s/4s (Bless him !!!). The 3s/4s lost 5-2 but we had goals from Dom Plumridge and Aaron Loftus. 5s/6s and 7s drew 2 – 2 against West Wickham.

Saturday 09/09/17 SEASON STARTS

When we arrived at the venue Polytechnic were just finishing a testimonial for their excellent and long serving Centre backs Messers, Banford and Checkitt. This is now going to be a traditional event to celebrate retiring players. Poly are one of the SAL’s top clubs winning Div 1 The AFA Senior cup and the SAL Senior cup. We play them next week at the Hood. (Pic of the Poly boys)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s Results. The 1s ran into a very strong BOE side and lost 4-0. Very high quality game and BOE were very impressive and should hold their own in Div 1 on this showing. The 2s beat BOE 5-3 in another good game with Chris Rayner and DQ both scoring twice. Denys also scored. We had at least 10 new members playing and showed strength in depth.
