Dov Owen (Real Hendon) – Was superb in goal for Hendon, producing in particular, one remarkable save at the end to secure the win

Gilad Kestenbaum (Real Hendon) – Was outstanding at the heart of the Real Hendon defence as they a claimed much-needed win
Yisroel Lewis (RC UK FC) – Was the rock at the heart of the RC defence, won everything, headed away corner after corner, nothing got past him all game
Josh Bentley (Scrabble) – Won every one-on-one, worked well with Brandon Sassoon at the heart of the Scrabble defence and rolled back the years, chipping in with the first goal of the day
David Benaim (Faithfold B) – Put in a solid shift at right-back, both solid defensively and a threat going forward

Adam Burchell (Maccabi London Lions A) – Lively throughout during the 90 minutes, he was a constant threat and scored twice
Oliver Sade (Finchley City) – A great performance, something happened every time he got on the ball, which was epitomised by his superb injury time free-kick which sealed his side the three points
Simon Englander (Hertswood Vale) – Man-of-the-Match performance for Vale as they frustrated the title challengers to claim an unlikely point.
Jacob Kaye (Redbridge C) – Put in a superb performance down the right flank, which was capped off by scoring a spectacular solo goal

Zac Lewis (Hendon United A) – Scored four brilliant goals – each one worthy of goal of the week – as he put on show which left him simply unplayable
Zach Cohen (Mill Hill Dons) – Absolutely dominated the game, scored a hat-trick after 18 minutes, then added a fourth later on and was a nightmare to defend against

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 Newsalso 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.
