Redbridge failed to pick up the three points they needed to secure the title – falling to a loss which hands the title to Oakwood.

Zac Neiman had drawn Redbridge level after Hendon took the lead from Avi Korman’s penalty, only for Zac Lewis to see them take a 2-1 lead into the break.

Goals from Steve Summers and Sam Sollosi in the space of three second half minutes then saw Redbridge take a 3-2 lead – to leave the title in their hands, but further strikes from Josh Harris and Yoav Kestenbaum saw the hosts claim a dramatic win, which saw The O’s crowned champions.

FIXTURES & TABLES
TABLE

RC UK FC 7 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE C 7
Third hosted fourth – and they shared 14 goals in this epic.

Jonti Aremband and Akiva Solomon scored two each, with player-manager Avi Markiewicz, Dovi Vogel and an own goal completing the scoring for the home side.

Jordan Sapler scored four goals for Redbridge, with Aaron Goldberg, Rafe Neiman and Nate Kashkett ensuring a point for Josh Hambling’s side.

Hambling told jewishnews.co.uk: “This was a battling performance that was one for the supporters (attendance of 6 today) with plenty of goals but, a great spirited comeback by the RJC boys. It was a game where nearly ever shot went in.

“We look to keep this crop of youth and experience as we go again next year where we’ll be going for the league. All in all a good year from the squad as a new team with a number of changes plus losing Bradley Grant for half a season we’ve made a good account of ourselves. Now the real season starts time to whip out the golf clubs!”

Markiewicz told jewishnews.co.uk: “A back and forth game that we lost because of an extortionate amount of defensive errors. We should have done better and didn’t, sums up our season really.”
