Grant Waissel (Norstar London Raiders C) – A fourth clean sheet of the season, and although he didn’t have a lot of saves to make, he organised the defensive unit well from between the sticks

Simon Bagel (SPEC) – Returned after a lengthy time out through injury and produced an excellent display
Jonny Samuel (Norstar London Raiders C) – Made some excellent tackles and lead by example, a true captain’s performance
Ben Grabiner (AC Mill Hill) – Outstanding at the heart of the Mill Hill defence and capped off wonderful performance by getting on the scoresheet
Gideon Chain (L’Equipe) – Part of an outstanding defence, with Chain highlighted as being ‘phenomenal’ by his manager

Jonny Harris (London Haroldeans) – Superb for Haroldeans, controlled midfield, giving as good as he got against promotion-seeking Storm
David Rose (London Maccabi Lions Blue) – Put a man-of-the-match performance as he starred for the Lions in the centre of the park
Guy Marks (Camden Park) – Found the end product to match his fantastic dribbling, popped up with a much-needed last minute winner; emerging as a real candidate for player of the season.
Dave Sawyer (Temple Fortune) – Was outstanding in the heart of midfield for Fortune, didn’t lose a single header or tackle

Josh Newman (Brady Maccabi B) – May not have been on the winning side, but was in imperious form as he grabbed a hat-trick in thrilling 3-3 draw
Zack Rich (Temple Fortune) – Playing the lone striker role, Fortune’s man-of-the-match was a real handful for 90 minutes, and a constant threat the Jewdinese back four

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.
