WEEK NINETEEN TEAM-OF-THE-WEEK

————————–

GOAL-OF-THE-WEEK-NOMINATIONS:

1) DANIEL POLAK (NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS C) – Picked up the ball in his own half, dribbled towards the Faithfold goal before playing Oli Nathan in down the right. He pulled the ball back to the edge of the box which was was rifled in on the half-volley by Polak

2) JONO GAON (LOS BLANCOS) – A well-placed 20 yarder into the bottom corner

3) DARREN ZITREN (TEMPLE FORTUNE) – Brilliantly well-worked team goal which saw Matt Leader, Nicky Stone and Michael Goldberg all exchanged first-time passes, before Zitren cooly slotted home at the back post.

————————–

SAVE-OF-THE-WEEK-NOMINATIONS:

1) WILL CASTLE (CAMDEN PARK) – Sprung to his right to push away a stinging shot from 12 yards out

2) MICHAEL SIDLOFF (BOCA JEWNIORS) – A sublime stop from the penalty spot

————————–

QUOTE-OF-THE-WEEK-NOMINATIONS:

1) JOSEPH LEVY (AC MILL HILL) – “This was one of the friendliest games of the season, marred by the referees decision to send of 3 players for foul and abusive language in the dying minutes.”

2) NICK KAGAN (CAMDEN PARK) – “This is at least the third game this season that we should have won and ended up drawing. I’m no mathematician, but taking three points instead of nine is always going to be a problem.”

LOS BLANCOS 2 HENDON UNITED SPORTS B 1
Blancos moved five points clear off the bottom of the table as two goals from Jono Gaon helped them to what could prove to be three massive points in their bid to avoid the drop.

Blancos’ Jonathan Gaon told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was a well-earned win which helped us towards our target of a mid-table finish, with great performances all over the pitch.”

————————–

WOODFORD WANDERERS 2 NORTH WEST NEASDEN 1
Woodford went joint-top of the table as they, in the words of manager Tony Charles: “eeased to a dominant victory.” Goals from Jason Goldstein and Mitch Hahn saw them to another impressive three points.

Jamie Cooper scored for Neasden, for whom manager Stirling Kay told jewishnews.co.uk: “This was a game that was won with two very well taken goals by Woodford, after we had taken the lead through Jamie’s penalty. There was no doubt that this game was a very tight game, it was very even throughout right up to the last kick of the game where they cleared the ball off their line twice in our final push to get a equaliser.

“For me the difference between the sides was Mitch Hahn, coming on in the first half, and he gave Woodford that somebody special, and was involved in every thing good Woodford did.

“I was very proud of my players in the way they stuck to their task in very poor conditions. As I said during the week, we went in to the game with out seven first team players, and this was our first game for seven weeks. We also had to bring on our only sub in the first half. So for us to of taken a very strong Woodford side to the last kick of the game shows as a club how far we have come. No question we deserved to get at least a point from the game with the effort put in by the boys but that’s football.”

DIVISION TWO:
TABLE
SEASON PREVIEW
FIXTURES & RESULTS

AC MILL HILL 2 OAKWOOD B 2
The clash between sixth and seventh unsurprisingly ended in a share of the points – even if it did see the hosts have three men sent-off.

Ben Zloof and Mark Truman scored for Mill Hill, with player-manager Joseph Levy telling jewishnews.co.uk: “I am most disappointed that we surrendered a goal lead twice and thought that Oakwood were there for the taking, but credit to them, they kept plugging away and got their rewards.”

David Woolman scored twice for the Os, for whom Ben Pollak told jewishnewws.co.uk: “We were much improved as a unit today, we battled hard and got something from the game, although the lads are a tad dissapointed not to take all the spoils. David Woolman’s return from injury has been timely, he’s been like a new signing and signing Jonny Pressman on a free until the end of the season has really tightened us up at the back. I still hope to unveil a couple more signings before the window slams shut but I won’t mention any names.

“I’ve been delighted with the reaction of the players since being appoint assistant to the manager, they often say that shaking up the management will bring results and the board have to be praised for making the move. It’s too early to say whether I’d be interested in the role on a permanenet basis, that wouldn’t be fair on Ian – he’s done a terrific job the gaffer getting us out of a very competitive division three. I’ll just focus on the next game against Faithfold B, it’s a real relgation six pointer and not one for the faint hearted.”

————————–

FAITHFOLD B 0 NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS B 3
The Raiders went eleven points clear at the top of the table after a bullet header from Matt Green,  shot from Rob Samuelson and a trademark Nicky Woolf finish from the edge of the box saw them to this comfortable win against a struggling Faithfold side.

Faithfold manager Robert Shooman told jewishnews.co.uk: “It really was a game of two halves, the first half they were really good – the best performance from a team we have played all season, both on and off the ball, where they scored their three goals.

“I changed things around at half-time and it was a much better performance from us in the second half, we came close but could not find a breakthrough. A good game played in the right spirit and we lost to most probably the team who will win this division, and they deserve to.”

MATCH POSTPONED – WATERLOGGED PITCH

HENDON UNITED C 1 AC WHETSTONE 6
Whetstone are up into fourth spot as they literally hit Hendon for six.

Philippe Auret and Jonah Gordon Boyd led the way on the goalscoring front, scoring two each, while Samuel Leader and Joshua Silverman also found the back of the net.

Joint-manager Clive Nathan told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was a difficult, bobbly surface and having gone in at half-time at 1-1, I would have taken any sort of win. However the boys were fantastic and really got at it in the second half. Our youth and fitness allowed us to play at a high tempo and that got us four goals in quick succession. Bearing in mind the conditions, we played some really good football and scored some excellent goals.”

Jono Nesbitt scored for Hendon, with player-manager Adam Glekin, who wasn’t at the game, telling jewishnews.co.uk: “The result was very disappointing.”

LOUGHTON ORIENT VS JEWDINESE

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS C 8 FAITHFOLD C 2
A hat-trick from Will Ufland helped Norstar to this emphatic win, which saw them go joint-top of the table.

Ollie Nathan, Jonny Samuel, Jamie Weinrich, Dan Pollack and Adam Rosenthal also all got on the scoresheet.

Dan Gordon and Ben Simons hit back for the visitors.

TEMPLE FORTUNE 2 BOCA JEWNIORS 5
Boca turned in a five-star performance as they moved up into joint-fifth with this win.

Adam Kay scored twice, with Zalmy Cohen, Paul Shinwell and Dovi Vogel completing the win.

Darren Zitren scored twice for Fortune, for whom manager Jonathan Cohen told jewishnews.co.uk: “We played well in the first half and scored two really excellent goals. But with only one sub, a few players short this week and a difficult pitch, we ran out of legs and the match got away from us.

“They deserved the win but the margin was a little harsh on us.  I also feel that if referees are to not officiate within the letter of the law then they must explain their decisions clearly and rationally to players and managers.”
