Ben Pollins (AC Whetstone) – Excellent throughout, but won his side three points with a stunning late save

Sam Lewis (Faithfold A) – There weren’t too many plus points for Faithfold, but the performance of Lewis at left-back was one of them
Avi Mocton (Hendon United C) – Filled in admirably at the heart of the Hendon defence, doing all he could to snuff out the league leaders strikeforce
Jake Yudelowitz (Norstar Raiders C) – Impressed once again at the back in the calming manner his teammates have become so accustomed to
Gideon Barth (Hendon United B) – His striker teammate may have bagged a hat-trick, but full-back got special praise for an “excellent” performance

Dan Alfreds (FC Team B) – Dangerous down the left-flank, claimed three assists and gave Brady problems for 90 minutes
Daniel Castle (Chigwell Athletic) – Rolled back the years with a dominating performance, full of energy, winning tackles and breaking forward
Ari Last (Hendon United A) – Took over the armband from Josh Lipman and lead by example with a vintage display including two goals
Lorian Madanes (FC Team B) – caused them problems all day long with his pace and skill. Worked well with Lassman and earned his goal

Mitch Lassman (FC Team B) – Was clinical with his two goals and led the line brilliantly to instigate stunning cup win
David Garfinkle (Hendon United B) – Was superb up front, netting a match-winning hat-trick to keep live Hendon’s hopes of avoiding relegation

David Gordon (FC Team B)

Mitch Lassman (FC Team B)

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.
