Deryk’s e-mailed me with his comments on Saturday’s satisfying first home win against Romford Spitfires:
“Another milestone reached, our first home victory as the re-formed Lions. Whereas I was, as usual, apprehensive before the game started the mood in the dressing room meant there was only ever going to be one result and it did not involve points for the Spitfires!
“At the beginning of the season we were referred to as the “wooden spoon team” and the “hapless Lions.” Well know this: we have tightened up our act. We are disciplined, motivated, focused and we act and play as a
team. The worm has turned. We are Lee Valley, we are the Lions and WE ARE BACK!”
Rousing words indeed, Deryk!
