Mike Myers (FC Team A) – Was Team’s Man of the match, kept his side in the game as he produced at least five great saves to help defeat the champions

Alon Hirshkorn (FC Team A) – Had a particularly good game at left-back and was solid throughout
Dan Field (Neasden) – Having hardly played all season he came into the side today and was dominant. Strong, quick and no nonsense defending
Gavriel Nussbaum (Shacharit Donetsk) – Strong performance at the heart of the Donetsk defence, and capped off performance with a goal
David James Cohen (FC Team A) – Team’s best outfield player at right-back. Had a great game and more than played his part in beating newly-crowned champions

Jon Breger (FC Team B) – Was influential throughout the 90 minutes, dictated play and got on the scoresheet
Ricky Engleman (NL Raiders A) – Didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. Dominant central midfield performance and looks in good shape for the cup final next weekend
Scott Kay (Neasden) –Was excellent in midfield today. Won everything in the air and his influence on the pitch on the pitch encourages everyone around him. Capped off a great performance by scoring the winning goal.
Lorian Madanes (FC Team B) – Scored a hat-trick, which was just reward for all the hard work he put in, ahead of next week’s Cup Final

Adam Ellis (Shacharit Donetsk) – Quite brilliant up front, ran opposing defence ragged, pacy, skilful and scored twice including a sublime effort
Dan Orgel (North West Neasden) – Most determined player on the pitch. Scored a quality goal and gave absolutely everything for the team. Looked dangerous throughout

Adam Ellis (Shacharit Donetsk)

Ben Gilbey (FC Team A)

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
