Jake Elliot was in top form in goal, behind the brilliant Jack Griffiths and Lucas Ford.

And Leo Streeter broke up play with help from Casey Clifford as the first half ended goalless.

Tigers came out for the second half in determined mood, pressing Priory from the front as Tom Casey led the way.

Taylor Riggs was switched so Bobby Sansum Snook could launch raids on the wing and crossed for Streeter to open the scoring.

Sansum Snook also forced a second goal as his early cross surprised a Priory defender who could only turn the ball into his own net.

Elliot comfortably dealt with any Priory attempts that came his way after that to claim his first Four by Four Creative Services man of the match award.

The under-nine Lions fell to a 3-0 defeat against a very good Priory A side.

Lions worked hard but their passing game was hampered by difficult pitch conditions.

Zak Roberts and Ray Payne worked tirelessly on the wings, as Sam Puddy tried to link up with Jacob Lawton in attack as the first half ended goalless.

The home side took the lead within five minutes of the restart and, despite some fine saves from Harvey Bird, doubled their lead when a striker evaded four challenges to poke home.

Man of the match Ben Murray and Olly Gomm toiled in the Lions defence, but could not prevent Priory adding a third late on.
