There were goals galore in the Nathan Horwitz Cup, while Division One leaders Raiders suffered a first league defeat of the season…


NATHAN HORWITZ MMFL DIVISION TWO CUP, sponsored by Atlantis Travel.

Marshside progressed at the expense of Glenthorne, with two goals from Jason Rich, along with strikes from Fara Moghim, Justin Woolf and David Hyman, giving them a 5-1 win.

Also into the hat for the next round are St John’s Wood Tigers, who dispatched Brady B 7-0. Ashley Marks and Darryl Lazarus scored two each, with Paul Herszaft, Grant Morgan and Adam Soller goals completing the rout.

Lions B will join them too, as a hat-trick from Michael Abraham and goals from Arthur Duke and Simon Black secured a 5-0 win over Temple Fortune.


The battle of the top two saw leaders North London Raiders suffer their first league defeat of the season as Chigwell came away with a 3-2 win.

Steve Summers’ double and Scott Warren’s strike saw them to the win, despite Raiders’ Jonny Blain reducing the deficit to a single goal with a second-half brace. The win sees close the gap between the top two to just four points, with them still having a game in hand.

The other game in the division saw Danny Carr and Scott Ansher earn Brady a 2-1 win over Scrabble, for whom Dan Lewis replied.



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”
