Richard Cooper (Temple Fortune) – Reserve goalkeeper kept Fortune’s first clean sheet of the season as he pulled off numerous saves during the 90 minutes

Parys Hammond (London Rovers) – Won absolutely everything at the heart of the Rovers defence and got a kick in the face for his trouble
Dan Ailon (Oakwood A) – Had a brilliant game against one of the league’s top strikers in James Gershfield, gave him very little throughout
David Rhodes (Norstar London Raiders A) – Commanding performance at centre-back. Led his team strongly and dealt with any threat that Lions had to offer
Ricky Shafier (FC Team B) – Travelled from South London and was excellent up and down the right including two assists

Jason Shoffman (AC Mill Hill) – Ran the game in the first half and created several chances with some unbelievable energy and driving runs
Ben Lauffer (Hendon United A) – Was only half fit but still ran the show with a superbly creative midfield performance
Avi Mocton (Hendon United B) – Gave assured performance for Hendon in the middle of the park and set them on road to victory by netting their opener
Sam Reeves (Faithfold A) – Brilliant performance for the Greens in midfield, played a starring role in their thrilling win over Woodford

Ethan Davis (AC Whetstone) – Came on in a forward midfield role to give the Oakwood back four a torrid time. Turned the tide of the game in Whetstone’s favour as youngsters went on to claim win
Adam Stolerman (FC Team C) – Brilliant performance up front, constant threat, but display slightly tarnished by also missing a penalty

Dan Ailon (Oakwood A)

Jeremy Brown (London Rovers)


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.
