On Sunday the Dragons training was a Blues v Reds in house match.
Christian and Amos selected the following teams:-
Blues: Amos, John A, Ryan, David K, Paul, Sam A, Hywel, Tommy, Aris, Adam, New Sam.
Reds: Christian, Muzz, John B, Jason, Leanne, Amy, Anthony, Simon D, Stefan, Simon E, Kris.
Playing on a very wet pitch and with light rain it was never going to be easy under food. One other obstacle being the river next to the pitch losing two match balls with the possibility of the game being abandoned due no footballs thank goodness we managed to keep our only other ball out of the river quite a skill for the defenders haha!!!!!!!!!!!!.
It was the Blues who struck first a solo run through the Red defence by Aris led to a fine finish by him. 1-0 Blues.
There was a lot of play in the center of the park. Both defences were having fine games.
It was a cross come shot by Jason that beat Amos in the Blues goal the ball going in off Amos own goal to him. 1-1 Although he did make up for that error 10 minutes later with a fine save from Kris. With new Sam having to come off with an injury the Blues played on with 10 men for the last 20 minutes of the first half. Half time 1-1
Second half and the Reds applied a lot of pressure to the 10 men of the Blues and it did not take long for Stefan to put the red 2-1 with a fine run on goal. It was not long before the Reds made it 3-1 Stefan again this time heading in a cross on the goal line.
With a man down the Blues were finding it hard but kept battling away. Aris then went off for the Blues so with them down to 9 Amy swapped sides and played for the Blues.
Both goal keepers were called into action after that making a few fine saves. The Reds then made it 4-1 with a bit of a defensive mix up Stefan running in again to score his 3rd of the game and complete his hat trick.
The Blues then made it 4-2 Paul scoring for them after some good team work.
Aris then came back on for the Blues making it 11 – 10 in players to Blues.
The final score of the game came from a corner Anthony playing the ball in low for Simon E to hit it through the keeper on the line.
Final Score 5-2 to the Reds.
Thanks to everyone for making it a very enjoyable afternoon.

The winner was Simon D, who looked very accomplished in the midfield.
