The joint leaders of the London Unity League, The London Falcons and The London Romans met on Sunday 11th November in a match sponsored by the the West London LGBT Convention and OutWest Surrey. It didn't take long for GFSN side The London Falcons to take the lead in a fiery encounter, with new signing Richard Cowell letting fly from outside the box with an unstoppable drive. Within 20 minutes the Falcons had moved into a commanding position at 3-0, with goals from former club captain Tom Price and James Edeki's first of the afternoon.
By half time the Falcons, who had played almost the entire 45 minutes in the Romans half, took a commanding 5-0 lead, with outstanding strikes from both Falcons leading goal scorer Edeki and club skipper, Ian Kehoe.
With the vital National cup game coming up on the 25th November (see below for details), Falcons club manager Craig Randall made sweeping changes with no less than 6 players making way for the Falcons substitutes. Some may have expected the goals to dry up in the second half and perhaps the Romans to make more of an impression, but that wasn't to be as the Falcons once again proved the quality of the squad Randall has assembled by thrashing another 5 goals past the beleaguered Romans side to leave a final score of London Falcons 10-0 London Romans, a new London Unity League record and the Falcons record winning margin since the club formed last year. The other goals coming from Sam Elliot (pen), Kevin Latham, another strike from Man of the Match James Edekie to complete his hatrick, recent signing Tony Kerr and Gary Britnell adding the last in the final minute of play.
Next up for the London Falcons is the Gay National League Cup quarter final tie against former Champions, Brighton Bandits. The game is due to be played at Charlton Athletics training ground in New Eltham.
