Plymouth FA - Football Cluster League  - Laira Green A and B 

Laira A and B teams headed down to the new and still under construction Manadon Football Development Center.  After a hard fought 90 minutes of matches, both teams faced each other.  In a close game the A team eventually won 2-0.  After a great effort from both teams the A team missed out on progressing by goal difference....... just 1 goal.  All teams behaved respectfully to each other.
