Firstly, all of us at Dudley Lions wish to congratulate both Pye Green and Living Hope on their promotions this Saturday to Division 2, with the former being achieved without kicking a ball!!!
Victory today was achieved by showing immense character by coming from behind twice in the 1st half after literally gifting the home team a 2-1 advantage, and us missing a penalty that would have pulled us back on level terms.
Shortly after missing his penalty, Steve Devonport then produced possibly the goal of the season with an absolute screamer from 30 yards which gave the keeper no chance for 2-2. From there on in we pretty much took control of the game, and added further goals from Ryan Cartwright and Matt Hassall who we really missed last week against Pye Green.
lf my maths is right, victory next week against Hawbush will see us promoted, which will be an amazing achievement considering that at the end of September we were in the bottom 4! I would also like to say a huge well done to all 3 officials today.
