FAITHFOLD A 0 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE B 5
The newly-crowned champions fell to their first defeat of the season as Redbridge claimed the points to boost its hopes of beating the drop/

Daniel Gordon and Jamie Bernstein scored two each, with Carl Dobrin also on target.

Stand-in manager Sam Rank told jewishnews.co.uk: “We were brilliant today, they were asked to work for each other and they delivered emphatically.

“A lot of big performances from the boys, special mention to goalkeeper Elliot Coulton- who produced a very composed and strong game and the back four – Lassmam and Adleman both deserved there clean sheet.

“The full-backs of Adam Noble and Scott Mckenize was highly impressive. Especially for Noble in second half who won the battle against Faithfold tricky winger David Leiwry.

“Overall the boys showed what they are about today, in all areas of pitch. The boys had a few guys returning and this was a big help.

“Faithfold A and Avi approached the game as an easy win, and they received a very big rude awakening.

“We will take this performance into our next game, and I would expect more of the same.”

Faithfold player-manager Avi Markiewicz told jewishnews.co.uk: “We started brightly and were the better team with the better chances in the first half. A mix of being a bit wasteful and some fine saves stopped us leading at half-time.

“Unfortunately in the second half several factors told. We were missing, Avi Mocton, Josh Wagner, Johnny Gahan, Ben Shirbini, Louis Naghten, Aaron Luftig , Dovi Vogel, David Kizneris and goalkeeper Joseph Corin.

“We had a couple of B team players, a stand-in goalkeeper, many players out of position and only one sub. The fact we were the better team in the first half was a credit to my team. We worked hard and produced a very good display. By the second half we became tired and Sam Solossi down from Redbridge A really started to get space and open up our team despite not scoring and was the difference between our teams.

“It took Redbridge until about the 60th minute to realise that we had a stand-in goalkeeper and at that point they started hitting shots from everywhere and four of the five goals were long range pot shots, including a corner, all of which should really have been dealt with.

“It’s also a bit of a shame as this was a game that we were already winning 1-0 at the 70th minute, in full control a couple of months back, only for the game to be abandoned and ordered to be replayed due to a serious Redbridge injury. I can’t fault my players as they worked hard but with almost our entire first 11 missing, and only one sub it told in the end. We will write it off and move on, hopefully most will be back against Oakwood for the final game and we can go out with a bang.”

FAIRLOP FC 3 MILL HILL DONS 1
The Dons saw their title challenge take a dent as they suffered defeat in Essex.

Daniel Garfinkle scored twice, with Kane Hopps also on target.

Manager Aaron Dias told jewishnews.co.uk: “We always knew it was going to be tough today, especially missing our two star men of recent weeks, James Jaconelli and Jordan Kara.

“What a day! What a result! It was a great day for all players and fans of this wonderful football club. I’ll start by saying I was far from happy with our footballing performance, the Dons set up to make it difficult for us to play football today and for the first 25 minutes their game plan was working. But the boys were patient out there and knew they if they kept trying to play football the goals would come.

“Today should once again showed what Fairlop Football club is all about. Pure grit, determination, passion and a little bit of quality won us that football game.There is a lot of football still left to be played, but that was a big step towards the title!

“Confidence is sky high and the boys are more committed than ever, Roll on the quarter final next Sunday.”

Richard Reback scored the visitor’s consolation, for whom Dons manager Brandon Hamme told jewishnews.co.uk: “A disappointing result but the boys gave it their all and put in a solid display, especially in the second half when we looked like we could have got ourselves back in the game.

“We don’t feel too disheartened with some more match fitness under our belt and some returning faces I believe we can give Fairlop a good game once again next time round and hopefully this time pick up a result.

“Our next game against FC Team is absolutely huge and could completely define our season, we got a result against them last time but they gave us a very good game in the process and we know we will have to be at our best. We can’t afford any more slip ups and I’m confident that we will put the disappointment of Sunday behind us and put in another good performance this weekend.”

Two goals from Ben Bhogel saw Fortune to the win.

Manager Simon Linden told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was a good win, very overdue and an excellent performance from everyone.

“There was no stand out performances, I asked the squad of 13 to put in a massive shift and not one player failed. Onto Redbridge next week which is now a massive game that could take us into the semi-finals.”

Oli Sade scored “an absolute screamer top corner”, though ultimately it was to no avail. Blancos Joel Barnett told jewishnews.co.uk: “We missed a penalty and ultimately too many nights out at the UJIA Purim party cost us.”
