With just less than a month to go until the start of the Jewish league football season, Boca Jewniors have announced that they’ve withdrawn from the League.

Their place in Division Two has gone to Real Hendon, who drop back down a division, meaning the top-flight will have ten teams, Division One now 11 and Division Two 12.

In what would have been their fifth season, the club’s Anton Nyman said: “To be honest [when we registered] we thought we had enough players, but then from what we had, several more disappeared off radar and we gave up hope.

“We started back in 2011 – so have had a few good seasons. Unfortunately, too many players have dropped away to the new teams and it makes it impossible to continue with depleted resources.”
