Marc Woolfe (NL Raiders B) – Excelled in central midfield, before donning the goalkeeping gloves – and pulled off a string of fine saves, including a penalty

Adam Waters (Scrabble) – Playing out of position but in top form defending well and raiding down the wing. Switched to central midfield and scored Scrabble’s second goal
Daryl Rubin (Redbridge A) – Was brilliant, composed and a goal threat at set-pieces, is simply a Rolls Royce of a defender
Brandon Sassoon (Scrabble) – A real captain’s performance, powerful headed clearances and distribution was of top class quality and scored
Zac Garbacz (Hendon A) – Wasn’t troubled defensively and made good use of the ball going forward

Benji Weinberger (Maccabi London Lions B) – Scored a match-winning brace, with the arriving in the 90th minute, as he showed his terrific finishing capabilities
James Bell (L’Equipe) – Man-of-the-match performance, won every tackle, displayed some beautiful passing and topped it off two brilliant goals
Ryan Kramer (Mill Hill Dons) – Claimed three assists, won numerous crucial challenges and cut the Raiders defence open several times with some delightful balls
Richard Winton (Catford & Bromley) – Tormented Redbridge throughout with a superb performance down the flank

Leor Sidle (Oakwood A) – Was simply unplayable. Never stopped running and his persistence and pressure paid off in stoppage time when he scored the winner
Dean Nyman (Redbridge A) – A menace to the whole backline, rolled back the years with a Man-of-the-Match performance

Jeff Gotch (Catford & Bromley)

Leor Sidle (Oakwood 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 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.
