Cardiff Dragons FC 1 – 4 Stonewall FC

Match report

GFSN Cup, 3rd October 2015, Pontcanna Fields

The Dragons took on LGBT icons (and World Championship winners!) Stonewall FC with a squad embracing the full range of our membership. Old and new players, men and women, combined to give the London side a fright or two before a flurry of goals before half-time put paid to any dreams of lifting the trophy for this season.

It was the home team who had the last word, however, with substitute Liam slotting in after some good work from Ruth and Ryan to augment a remarkable second-half clean sheet. All in all, the Dragons—especially 11-a-side debutantes Megan R, Thom, Zak and Joe—can take considerable pride in creating so many chances and forcing such accomplished rivals to dig deep to wear them down.

The afternoon was rounded off by our visitors joining us for a delicious al fresco feast prepared by Sue, Megan and Muzz. Many thanks to them, manager Ryan, and all our supporters.
