Chigwell turned in a five-star performance at the top of Division One, while Lions put seven goals past Hendon in Division Two.



Chigwell moved to within a point of leaders North London Raiders thanks to a 5-2 win against Scrabble. Lloyd Becker and Scott Warren scored two each, with Richard Slater claiming their fifth. Adam Barton and Steven Moss replied for Scrabble.


Lions maintained their title challenge with a thumping 7-0 victory over Hendon. Ory Halperin and Darren Dryer both claimed hat-tricks, with Peter Joffe also on target.

Marshside are a point and place behind Lions after they came back from a goal behind to beat St John’s Wood Tigers 3-1. John Perloff put the Tigers ahead, though Sam Nourazi’s penalty and goals from Fara Moghim and Ed Saleh saw Marshside to the points.


Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
