Yar­lett em­bar­rassed by de­fen­sive hor­ror show

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL DAR­REN Yar­lett has warned Lon­don Lions that a re­peat of the de­fen­sive hor­ror show against Bov­ing­don will not be re­peated.

The Lions coach looked on in dis­be­lief as the Row­ley Lane team threw away a 2-0 and 5-1 ad­van­tage to draw 5-5 in the Herts Se­nior County League Pre­mier Divi­sion.

Char­lie Kasler fired Lions ahead from the edge of the area. The lead was dou­bled when good link-up play in­volv­ing Harry Hatch­well and Josh Ken­net re­sulted in James Ger­sh­field slid­ing the ball home.

Bov­ing­don halved the deficit 10 min­utes into the sec­ond half but ex­cel­lent work from Ken­net al­lowed Ger­sh­field to re­store the two-goal ad­van­tage.

Austin Lip­man made it 4-1 but Bov­ing­don con­tin­ued to cap­i­talise on sloppy de­fend­ing to score twice, either side of an own goal.

Bov­ing­don ral­lied su­perbly in the clos­ing stages to score twice, much to the dis­ap­point­ment of Yar­lett.

“I don’t think I have ever felt this an­gry af­ter a game,” he said. “The play­ers know, ev­ery sin­gle one of them. It’s not good enough, and it can’t hap­pen again.

“Some­times play­ers need a kick up the back­side. They all know the last 20 min­utes of the match can­not be tol­er­ated.

“We al­ways try to take the pos­i­tives, so we earned a point, scored five goals and, at times, played some good foot­ball.”
