A late strike from Daniel Stan­ton lifted Lon­don Lions back to sec­ond in the Herts Se­nior County League Premier Divi­sion as they held off Chip­per­field Corinthi­ans.

Giv­ing a rare start to the ev­er­green An­drew My­ers and a de­but to Dean Ny­man, the Lions took the lead in the first half. Hav­ing seen his first penalty saved, Adam Stol­er­man fared bet­ter from an­other spot-kick sec­onds later

With Dar­ren Gard­ner giv­ing the Lions de­fence count­less prob­lems, it came as no sur­prise when the Corinthi­ans equalised in the sec­ond half.

To their credit, the Lions stepped up a gear and Stan­ton found time and space to find the net and earn his team a 2-1 victory. Lions boss Tony Gold said: “When the lads play like thos it makes all the hard work worth­while. Andy My­ers put in an ex­cep­tional per­for­mance, both vo­cally and phys­i­cally.”
