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.”
