Jake Doffman (NL Raiders A) – Produced an incredible save that would be admired at even the highest level of football to keep Raiders 1-0 up and send them on their way to victory

Andy Cohen (NL Raiders C) – Great shift at left-back, which was topped off by scoring a lovely cushioned header
Max Foster (Manchester Maccabi) – Manchester’s man-of-the-match, was outstanding and produced an outstanding block-sliding tackle in a bullish performance
Dale Bradman (Oakwood A) – A rock at the back for Oakwood, was fundamental as they came out on top in the clash of the top flight’s top-two
Jonti Aremband (RC UK FC) – For most of the game was played out of position at right-back, nothing got past him and was also a huge threat going forward

Josh Bharier (Scrabble) – Gave a great example of power and pace when running with the ball from midfield and then scored a goal-of-the-season contender
Michael Stratton (South Manchester Maccabi) – Captain of the club led by example and ran the game in the middle of the park
Michael Woolf (Temple Fortune) – Controlled the game, in both screening the defence and starting attacks. Read the game beautifully
Josh Cohen (Hertswood Vale) – Productive morning down the right flanks which saw him score twice – one a contender for goal of the week

Zach Cohen (Mill Hill Dons) – Four goals, plus assists saw him turn in the perfect performance. Caused the Catford defence all manner of problems for the entire 90 minutes
Saul Shapiro (South Manchester Maccabi) – Scored South’s second and third goal to take the tie into a penalty shoot-out – before he scored the winning kick

Ric Blank & Daniel Kristall (Oakwood A)

Saul Shapiro (South Manchester Maccabi)

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.
