A round-up of all the action!
The first round of the e-First Division took place on Sunday 7th January. Lions sit top of the pile thanks to their 6-2 triumph over Gibraltar Utd, however they will need to keep up their goal scoring form as Matchday One saw goals galore – 23 to be precise! As Lions lead solely on goal difference, it looks like the rest of the pack will be aiming for top spot as Lions take their slender lead into Matchday Two.
Here’s the lowdown on all the action..
Europa FC’s early goal set the tone for the first 45, which saw the home side double their lead just on the stroke of half-time.
