Josh Alswang (North London Raiders B) – Even in defeat, the makeshift goalkeeper didn’t let his side down

Ryan Cole (Redbridge A) – Named man-of-the match after putting in a magnificent performance, was simply unplayable and claimed two assists
Gilad Kestenbaum (Real Hendon) – Was solid for the entire 90 minutes and scored a great header to top off performance
Adam Newman (Scrabble) – Played his first full game in a few months and looked solid as a rock. Showed great distribution and produced clearances both in the air and on the ground
Ben Davis (Hertswood Vale) – A fantastic game both defensively and offensively, which also saw him grab his first goal for the club with a 25-yard screamer from the edge of the box

Yarden Sharon (Catford & Bromley) – Described by his manager as being the best player on pitch, which was justified by the way he controlled the game
Jamie Leboff (Boca Jewniors) – Worked tireless in the middle of the park for Boca and got on the scoresheet for his efforts
Eli Davila (Finchley City) – Described as putting in one of best individual performance all season. Had a 100 percent tackle completion as he bossed the midfield
Dan Geey (Oakwood B) – Rolled back the years as he turned in an exquisite standout midfield performance

Zac Lewis (Hendon United A) – After a few quiet weeks, was back to his mesmerising best as he scored the perfect hat-trick – header, left foot right foot
Jonny Blain (NL Raiders C) – Scored four times, including a goal-of-the-week contender with an effort direct from the kick-off

Jacob Emanuel & Jack Shulman (Hertswood Vale)

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.
