🔴🤩 RC LENS LONDON U16S V. RC LENS LONDON U15S 🔴🤩⁣ ⁣ An organised, clinical performance by the U16s saw them come out 3 – 0 winners against their younger counter-parts earlier this afternoon, in what was an exciting, competitive game at Club Des Sports 🏆⚽️⁣ ⁣ The U16s started very strongly, scoring two goals early to put them in a dominant position. The U15s continued to push for the comeback, playing some slick, intelligent football but couldn’t find the breakthrough against what was incredibly focused, hard-working U16s team performance 👏🏼🔥⁣ ⁣ Overall, a proud day for the club, with both teams demonstrating the confidence, passion and respect we pride ourselves on #OneClubOneUnity 🙌🏼 ⁣ ⁣ Many thanks to everyone who attended to support the teams (and to those who supported on our live stream !) 🙏🏼⁣ ⁣ #Football #Soccer #RCLens #London #YouthPremierLeague #Elites #Goals #Team #Club #Sport #CestUneFamille⁣
