Lethal Lions hit perfect 10
LONDON LIONS 10 BELSTONE 2
FOOTBALL LONDON Lions reached their second semi-final of the season after humiliating their closest league rivals Belstone 10-2 in the quarter final of the Aubrey Cup.
Top-scorer James Gershfield and Max Kyte helped themselves to hat-tricks as the Lions turned on the style at Rowley Lane.
Lions coach Darren Yarlett said: “To be honest, I am lost for words. I expected us to win but not like this. The boys were absolutely ruthless, probably the best I’ve seen in my time here.”
Josh Kennet (2), Austin Lipman and Adam Burchell also netted, with Gershfield’s hat-trick goal his 41st of the season and his 101st for the first team.
“I have seen us play better,” said Yarlett, “but our forward players were the difference. They were superb.
“This was the start of a very important run of games for the club and we now have a week to prepare for our Herts Centenary Trophy semi-final against Bishop Stortford Swifts who we know are a very good side.
“We will need to be at our best if we want to reach the final.”
