Sunday sees the start of the Maccabi GB (Southern) Football League as 29 teams do battle over the next nine months.
CLUB-BY-CLUB PREVIEWS BELOW:
Ahead of the big kick-off, we’re giving out predictions as to who will be popping the champagne in May. Tipping Oakwood A to make it back-to-back Premier Division titles, we’re predicting L’Equipe to claim a second consecutive title to become Division One champions and are putting our money on new boys Fairlop FC to begin life in Jewish football by scooping the Division Two title.
League chairman David Wolff is backing James Gershfield’s London Lions White side to reciprocate their Saturday team’s title-winning success of last season by lifting the Premier Division, is putting his faith in North Raiders London B becoming Division One champions, and new boys Bayern Mincha to get their hands on the Division Two title.
Speaking about his hopes for the forthcoming campaign, he said: “We have 29 teams competing, which is slightly down on last season and is disappointing, and we have to firstly look to retain that number. We have a new development officer in place, whose first objective is to keep that number in place and then look at ways of improving on that number.”
