👏 Spartan League Division One London Lions FC 0 v. ‪St Panteleimon FC 2 ‬ ‪(Javonne Molloy, Brad Gilmaney)‬ 📆

Saturday 11th January 2020

St Panteleimon started the new year in the league with an away win against an attacking London Lions team. The home side gave the Saints a good run for their money, and attacked with purpose.

Donald Manaj, the Saints’ keeper, gave another solid and reliable performance. ‬ ‪The Saints scored after 9 minutes with a clever flick from Javonne Molloy, but they did not capitalise one this advantage, and did not really come out of second gear. ‬

‪The Lions had a decent share of the possession, but the Saints had a solid back line and moved the ball in their usual tidy manner. They could not find clear openings however. ‬

‪The second half had a similar pattern. The Lions were relentless, but the Saints contained them, and then tried to build moves on the wings. ‬

‪The second goal came from a corner, with an improvised volley from Brad Gilmaney that was well struck and flew into the top corner. 0-2 gave the Saints a decent cushion and three hard earned points. ‬ ‪

The Saints’ next game is on Tuesday night against Buckingham Athletic FC, at 19:45 at the ground of Haringey Borough on White Hart Lane.‬
