The Warriors conceded first against a good Alphington side, but battled back well with Man of the Match Jamie Pitter scoring twice to rubber-stamp his status as the team’s top scorer this season.

In their second game against West Exe the Warriors played very well with plenty of energy in all areas and, thanks to the efforts of Man of the Match Toby Edmunds, finished the season on a good note.

The Raiders, up against West Exe first, performed very well in a close game with few goals but plenty of chances for both teams!

Goalkeeper Oscar Parkinson was the Raiders’ star performer and he made a number of fine saves.

In their second game against Alphington, the Raiders, after a slow start, rallied with Herbie Isherwood the stand-out player with his solid defensive work.

Raiders coach Keith Pulman said: “Both myself and the other coaches who have worked this seas with Raiders and Warriors are very proud of the efforts and the dedication of all the players this season. They have turned up in all weathers and have always giving their absolute best. We are all looking forward to next season”
