CYRIL ANEKSTEIN CUP FINAL:
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 2 OAKWOOD A 1
David Dinkin’s penalty saw Raiders retain the Cyril Anekstein Cup, as them completed the first leg of a potential league and cup treble.
Ricky Engleman had fired them ahead, before Dave Woolman drew the O’s level.
BRIXTON OLD BOYS 1 BRADY MACCABI 1
Brixton secured a valuable point in their bid to escape relegation, as they held Brady to a point.
Josh Kalinsky scored for the hosts, with Reiss Mogilner replying for Brady.
FC TEAM B 6 FAITHFOLD B 1
Team kept their incredibly slim chances of winning the title alive as they thrashed the bottom side.
Jon Breger helped himself to a hat-trick, Adam Rones scored twice, with Andy Sheena making it a sweet six. Player-manager Mitch Young told jewishnews.co.uk: “We struggled to find our rhythm in the first half only leading 1-0. The goal in itself was very fortunate as well to be honest. Second half our quality shone through and we were very very comfortable. Job done and on to the next one! Would like to thank Martin Fox for filling in to ref last minute.”
Faithfold manager Rob Shooman told jewishnews.co.uk: “We scored three own goals , three clearances rebounded of defenders hitting other defenders and there was a very dubious penalty. The game was quite equal until these incidents happened and we didn’t deserve to let in six goals. The game was played end to end at good pace and quality, FC Team deserved to win they were the better team but the score line is totally unjust .
My boys worked hard and luck was just against us. We are now looking forward to next season and if we can keep these guys together we will be competing in the top half of the table.”
OAKWOOD B 0 REAL SOSOBAD 0
Oakwood’s promotion hopes of a top-two finish are over as they were held to goalless stalemate.
O’s manager Jason Stein told jewishnews.co.uk: “This was a game that will not live long in the memory. Both sides tried to enjoy it and by all accounts it was played in good end of season spirit and refereed well.
“Given neither side had a proper substitute, the pace of the match dropped off, although we did carve out a few decent chances that on another day may have seen us win.
“All in all, I’m happy enough to have avoided defeat at this stage of the season even if we could have done much better in the final third.”
Sosobad manager Daniel Shafron told jewishnews.co.uk: “We clubbed together today and showed great determination and desire to work hard for each other for 90 minutes.
“We were disciplined in our setup, very well organised and kept Oakwood at bay for the entire game. They had a couple of chances from distance and our goalkeeper Elliott Coulton made a great one-on-one save. We could have won the game when a shot from very close range was kept out from someone who looked remarkably like me! Nevertheless, I’m proud of the eleven that showed up and the boys can now enjoy a few weeks off before our final game against Brady.”
BOCA JEWNIORS 0 ATHLETIC BILBAUM 5
Bilbaum moved up to fourth spot with this comfortable win.
Ed Green scored twice, with Josh Pugh, Ben Bell and a deflected own goal sealing their rout. Manager Julius Judah told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was another comprehensive win. It’s a shame that our season is over as our 2016 form has been brilliant; 38 goals scored and only one loss. We hope to build on that in the post-season cup!”
Boca’s Anton Nyman told jewishnews.co.uk: “The first three goals came from slack defending and unfortunate bounces on set-pieces (including an own goal in there).
“Bilbaum were the better side but the scoreline arguably did us no favours.”
HENDON UNITED B 1 CATFORD & BROMLEY 2
Catford claimed an impressive win against fast-falling Hendon.
Jamie Sinai and Ashley Stokes scored for the Cats, for whom player-manager Jeff Gotch told jewishnews.co.uk: “Just like our previous games against Hendon we found ourselves trailing at the break from some sloppy defending. But the second half saw us make a couple of substitutions, and from there on it was one-way traffic, as we took control with two quick goals around the hour mark
“It’s been an up and down season where we have taken most our points from the top five sides in the league, anyway it’s a good basis for next year.”
Benni Sluckis scored for Hendon.
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS C 0 MACCABI LONDON LIONS B 4
Lions secured promotion to Division One with this comfortable win at Brunel.
Benji Weinberger scored twice, with Adam Abadi and Charlie Cohen also on target. Manager Samuel Marchant told jewishnews.co.uk: “We’re delighted to be promoted! Our target at the beginning of the season was exactly that and it feels fantastic to have achieved it and in such style. The football we played at times today was truly sensational. The team knew what today meant and its importance and they went out with he required hunger and desire. Everyone on the pitch was exceptional and we can now relax and celebrate the achievement!”
