Boss Gold just lov­ing Lions pride

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY DAVID GOLD

Lon­don Lions boss Tony Gold reck­ons his boys are ready to roar fol­low­ing their open­ing day suc­cess. Af­ter fall­ing be­hind within the first 45 sec­onds to Lon­don Col­ney, Lions hit back through Andy Glynne and the re­turn­ing Dean Ny­man. And Gold, whose team lost out to Lon­don Col­ney twice last sea­son, says he is de­lighted with his team’s start to the new sea­son. “I have noth­ing but ad­mi­ra­tion for this Lions squad,” he said.

“Fol­low­ing last week’s em­bar­rass­ment at Berkham­sted in the cup, the lads have re­sponded in the only way they could with a gutsy, hard work­ing and tech­ni­cally su­perb 90 min­utes of foot­ball.

“We now have some­thing to build on and work to­wards.

“It is im­por­tant we don’t get car­ried away, a lot of hard work is still re­quired.”

Reel­ing from con­ced­ing such an early goal, Lions im­proved af­ter the break and grabbed a de­served equaliser when Glynne turned home Ben El­lis’s cross.

Lions be­gan to dom­i­nate with Gold’s men look­ing the more likely to win the game.

And with less than half an hour re­main­ing, Ny­man raced onto sub­sti­tute Josh Ken­net’s beau­ti­fully weighted through ball to seal the points.

Lon­don Lions: Danny Ber­liner, David Soutar, Adam Myeroff, Ollie Craig (Adam Klein), Kyle Bent­wood, Andy Glynne (Avi Schwartz), Aron Barnes, Daniel Stan­ton, TJ Keter­man (Josh Ken­net), Ben El­lis, Dean Ny­man .
