A mixture of league and cup action saw Chigwell score 11 in the former, while Raiders hit half-a-dozen to increase their lead at the top of the Division One table, writes Jeremy Silverstone

HENRY SWERNER MACCABI MASTERS FOOTBALL LEAGUE CUP, sponsored by Visualeyes Opticians and Sunglasses, Barnet.

The Maccabi Masters Cup kicked off this weekend – and it saw Chigwell clearly signal their intentions with an 11-2 win over Division Two leaders EHRS.

Lloyd Becker notched up five goals and Mark Conway’s double, along with strikes from Scott Warren, Adam Klein, Richard Slater and Rob Donn, saw them to the most emphatic of wins. Steve Krieger and Malcolm Joseph – from the penalty spot – replied for EHRS.

Lions A also progressed, at the expense of Brady A. Graeme Grossman gave Brady A the lead, but strikes from Rob Glass, Bradley Lazarus and Craig Pearl turned it round for Lions as they won 3-1.



Leaders North London Raiders extended the gap at the top of the table to seven points as they saw off Scrabble with a 6-0 victory. Lee Cash scored twice, with Hezi Yechiel, Tony Plaskow, Jonny Blain and Alex Bourne also all on target.


Brady B pulled off the shock of the day as they claimed their first win of the season – two goals from Jon Nesbitt earned them a 2-0 win over St John’s Wood Tigers, to lift them off the bottom of the table.



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”
