There were goals galore in the two League cup fixtures, while Division Two’s bottom side Hendon Harriers fell to another loss…
HENRY SWERNER MACCABI MASTERS FOOTBALL LEAGUE CUP, sponsored by Visualeyes Opticians and Sunglasses, Barnet.
‘Youth’ won out over experience as North London Raiders and Scrabble from Division One enjoyed comfortable wins over Division Two opposition.
Raiders secured their place in the next round with a 7-0 win over Marshside, thanks to a hat-trick from Ben Simons, along with strikes from Wayne Davidson, Hezi Yechiel, Dave Eden and James Cartmell.
Scrabble’s win was even more emphatic as four goals from Stefan Simons, along with a hat-trick from Steven Moss saw them on their way to a 10-0 win over St John’s Wood Tigers. Dan Ruckin, Dan Lewis and a penalty from Jeremy Kornhauser completing the rout.
Temple Fortune edged out Hendon Harriers, Robert Botkai’s double and Yali Mamouri’s strike seeing them to a 3-2 win, Andy Diamond and Kevin Blake hitting the Harriers’ consolations.
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”
