Lower Youth Development League Match 3 Report

Lower League Match report – Match 3


Match 3 in this year’s YDL Lower was back on home turf at Longford Park


As ever a big thanks to our officials, Scott, Rachel, Peter, Sue, Graham, Neil, Dave and Kamil– whose contribution not only ensures that the fixture can take place, but also contributed valuable points to the team score which again increased from the previous match.
