TEAM OF THE WEEK

GOAL OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS

1) DANNY STEEL (REAL HENDON):
Cut inside, went between two defenders, before his quick feet took him round the goalkeeper to allow him to slide the ball into the empty net.

2) AVI KORMAN (HENDON UNITED A)
unleashed an unstoppable 30 yard pile-driver into the top corner in the final minute of the cup final – Roy of the Rovers stuff.

3) MITCH YOUNG (FC TEAM A)
Dummied a defender, then played a one-two with Lorian Madanes, before curling the ball into the top corner

————————–

SAVE OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS:

1) RUSS CORIN (HENDON UNITED A)
Produced an incredible point-blank reaction stop from a bullet header at an absolutely crucial time

QUOTE OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS:

1) ROB SHOOMAN (FAITHFOLD C)
“We were **** and they took the few chances they had, we missed a bucket load and looked even if we had played until tomorrow we still wouldn’t have scored. They were certainly not better than us.”

2) MITCH YOUNG (FC TEAM A)
“It was an extremely comfortable performance where we should have scored 20.

BRIXTON OLD BOYS 0 FC TEAM B 11
Team kept alive their title hopes as a hat-trick from Lorian Madanes helped them to this thumping win.

Richard Salmon, Andy Sheena and Jon Breger scored two each, with player-manager Mitch Young and James Korn strikes wrapping up the scoring.

Young said: “It was an extremely comfortable performance where we should have scored 20. However, we can only beat what we are put up against and it’s a shame we weren’t tested heading into two massive games.

“Credit to Brixton for fielding an 11 and I hope they can stay together as I can imagine how difficult it is.”

DIVISION TWO:

HENDON UNITED B 0 MACCABI LONDON LIONS B 2
Goals from Joshua Bloom and Zak Linden saw the Lions to this comfortable win.

Manager Samuel Marchant said: “We performed well today. We weren’t at our clinical best but we were very solid and fought extremely well.

“Guy Surkis in the midfield was exceptional and helped us dictate the game.

“Hendon made it very tough for us and although we’re near the end of the season with the standing pretty much cemented, it was a really strong and competitive game of football which was great to see.”

————————–

L’EQUIPE 4 FAITHFOLD C 0
L’Equipe ended their season on a winning note as they secured a top-six spot.

Andy Smith scored twice, with Josh Lewis and an own goal dealing the win.

L’Equipe manager Nick Stern said: “We put in a brilliant team performance and when you dominate at the back, keep a clean sheet, are only defending long shots, then bully and dominate up front scoring four goals, you more than likely deserve to win.

“I was so so proud of the boys who hadn’t played for so long, and with a number of absentees it really does show the strength of the squad.

“We fell short of our goals for the season, but the way we have played the last six weeks has been a joy. We have shown our team spirit and played in a true L’Equipe way the last couple of months. Bring on the cup and of course the annual end of season party.”

Faithfold manager Robert Shooman said: “We were **** and they took the few chances they had, we missed a bucket load and looked even if we had played until tomorrow we still wouldn’t have scored, they were certainly not better than us.

“One of those games, one of those days, every team has them!”

REAL HENDON 6 TEMPLE FORTUNE 0
Hendon ended their season in style as they hit for Fortune for six.

Danny Steel scored twice, with Gav Noe, RA Noe, Yoni Cohen and player-manager Chaim Gothold also all on target.

Gothold said: “It could have been a lot more but fair play to Temple Fortune for working hard until the final whistle.

“It was a good way to sign off the season.”

Fortune player-manager Jonathan Cohen said: “We were poor in the first half but acquitted ourselves much better in the second. I have to say that I don’t think the pitch was conducive to a decent game of football but that does not excuse our first half display.

“I will note that the level of respect showed by my team to ALL officials throughout the game was very good and it was just a shame that the same cant be said for others. We all move on.”
