Lions flying thanks to Kyte double

BALL2London Lions moved up into second spot in the table as they swept aside Sarratt in convincing style.

Herts Senior County League Premier Division:
Sarratt 0 London Lions 4
Saturday, 5 September, 2015


Playing their second away game of the week, Lions were determined to make a quick start and had a number of good opportunities before they took the lead midway through the first half when Max Kyte was upended in the box as he rounded the goalkeeper, but he dusted himself off to score coolly from the spot to put the visitors in front. Lions were controlling possession but failed to find another goal, meaning Sarratt were still in the match at half-time and they came out with renewed effort in the second half.

For a period, Lions were forced to defend stoutly, with Zac Rose and goalkeeper Josh Tray looking particularly assured. However, another goal effectively ended the game, and that man Max Kyte added to his already impressive early season tally with another strike from a loose ball in the Sarratt box. Supersub TJ Keterman then got in the act, driving a free-kick in from 20 yards; before adding his second late on to complete the scoring.

Manager Andy Landesberg was pleased with “another good display, with an important clean sheet.”
