The U13 Panthers secured promotion to SYL Elite with a draw against Claygate on Sunday 25th March.
The boys needed a win to guarantee promotion but Claygate were in no mood to lie down and let the party start. The Panthers, minus some important team members and exhibiting some promotion chasing nervousness, took the lead and then doubled it after 20 minutes. However with literally seconds to go in the first-half, a very uncharacteristic mix up gifted Claygate a goal.
The second-half started and encouraged by their goal and their pacey striker Claygate equalised and then took the lead. But rather than giving up, the Panthers rallied as a unit and pulled the scores level. The clock was ticking down and although there was a good shout for a penalty in the dying seconds the game ended as a draw. This result meant that the Panthers needed 1 more point from their last 3 games.
The Panthers have achieved promotion by Playing (so far)15, Winning 12, Drawing 2 and Losing 1
Well Done PANTHERS !!!!!!!!!
