James Bell (L’Equipe) – Stand-in goalkeeper normally plays centre-midfield. Communicated well with the back four and made two crucial saves to earn a clean sheet

James Lesner (Los Blancos) – Exemplary game at left-back, up and down the wing tirelessly and also scored a penalty
Josh Marlow (Boca Jewniors) – Was simply described as being imperious at the heart of Boca’s defence
Sam Castle (Harmen) – Best performance of the season, made several last-ditch tackles, won every header at the back and was unlucky not to score
Alex Sherr (Norstar London Raiders C) – Asked to fill in in a position he’s not played in before, but put in a fantastic shift, up and down the right flank all game

Rafi Marom (Blizzard Storm) – Scored one, made one, turned in a good all-round performance
Dale Bradman (Boca Jewniors) – A fantastic performance and barely put a foot wrong as Boca stunned Faithfold
Luke Brookner (Camden Park) – Ran the game in midfield, efficient on the ball and tireless work rate
Lorian Madanes (FC Team B) – Simply described as being the best player on the pitch, capped off performance by getting on the scoresheet

Adam Stolerman (FC Team C) – Typical performance up front from the prolific striker, although three goals on this occasion was in vain
James Gershfield (Harmen) – Great hat-trick from, what his manager describes, as being, ‘one of the best players in the League’

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.
