Tony Hirschstein (Temple Fortune) – May have been on the losing side, but pulled off several top-class saves to keep the score down

Avishai Kestenbaum (Hendon United A) – Played as emergency left-back and was faultless throughout
Oliver Segal (FC Team B) – Stepped into center back position and was outstanding throughout the 90 minutes
Aron Luftig (London Rovers) – Filling in for the second week and took complete control at the back. Opposition strikers didn’t have a sniff at goal.
 Gavriel Nussbaum (Shacharit Donetsk)Part of a defensively strong Donetsk side which claimed an impressive win over the Lions

Rafi Marom (Blizzard Storm) – Finding his feet in the Storm midfield, worked hard throughout and created a lot of chances
Marc Woolfe (Norstar London Raiders C) – Ran the game with his excellent range of passing and calmness on the ball and also claimed an outstanding assist
Josh Jacobs (Real Sosobad) – Ran the game, his best performance of the season by miles. Was completely unselfish and made a great interception which led to Sosobad’s opening goal
Adam Arnold (North West Neasden) – Scored twice, tormented Woodford for 90 minutes with a superb display of trickery and work rate

Dan Gordon (Faithfold B) – ‘Flash’ was just that up front, causing all manner of problems for the Fortune defence and deservedly helping himself to a hat-trick
Matt Stock (Norstar London Raiders A) – A hat-trick inside the first half an hour and gave the Faithfold defence the run around all morning

Marc Woolfe (Norstar London Raiders C)

Zack Gothelf (Norstar London Raiders C)

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.
