Hat­field cage Li­ons


The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -


LON­DON Li­ons boss Tony Gold ac­cused his play­ers of “go­ing miss­ing” af­ter the Row­ley Lane team slipped to sixth in the Herts Se­nior County League Pre­mier Di­vi­sion.

Li­ons fell be­hind within two min­utes when keeper Danny Ber­liner was lobbed from 18 yards. Ber­liner did not last much longer as a knee in the hip forced him off, leav­ing de­fender Jon El­lis to fill in be­tween the sticks.

Hat­field dou­bled their ad­van­tage on the stroke of half time and clinched the points with a well-taken third 15 min­utes from time. Striker Lee Cash came clos­est to a con­so­la­tion for the Li­ons but his drive was kept out by a fine save from the home keeper.

Gold said: “Hat­field were hun­grier, more de­ter­mined and made fewer er­rors in dan­ger­ous ar­eas that can hurt you.

“It did not help los­ing our keeper early on, but when you come to places like this you need 11 men that will stand up and be counted. To­day, too many of my play­ers went miss­ing.”
