Tigers tamed as Leverstock Green finally put an end to their losing run


As if Hemel Town’s FA Cup exploits were not enough, there was yet more drama on Tuesday night – as Leverstock Green’s long losing streak finally came to an end.

Levy had lost their previous 13 games in all competitions – a sequence stretching back to mid-August – but they put in a much-improved display to see off London Tigers 3-1 in the Premier Division Cup.

Tom Hardy scored in the first half, with Connor Deadman adding the second in the 47th minute and Daren Bloor making it 3-0 in the 74th minute.

Tigers pulled a goal back, but Levy held out for the win despite being under some pressure, with a good performance in goal from Dan Blacktopp.

Green are away again in the next round, this time at Hadley.

The side should pick up some much-needed confidence and momentum from Tuesday night’s result, and take it into Saturday’s Challenge Trophy tie at home to St Margaretsbury.
