On Monday 5th September The John Lyon School 1st and 22nd XI football teams challenged the Old Lyonian Football Club. Both matches were played in a friendly but competitive atmosphere, and with a warm balmy evening a summer of little training became apparent on both sides. In the JLS 1st XI match the score finished 1-1, with opportunities at both ends of the pitch foiled by some first class goalkeeping. In the JLS 2nd XI match the OL's won 3-1, with tactics outweighing stamina.
With both the School teams and the OLFC teams facing a busy season ahead these matches are always an excellent opportunity for the senior students to find out more about playing for the Old Lyonians Football Club when they graduate
