Chigwell produced an emphatic win to move up into second spot in Division One, while EHRS hit Brady B for six in Division Two…



Chigwell moved up into second spot place after they produced a thumping 7-2 win over Brady A.

Lloyd Becker and Daniel Castle scored two each, with Alex Levack, Mark Conway and Richard Slater making it a sweet seven for the Essex men. Mark Wagman and Shnayer Shapiro replied for Brady.

In the battle of the bottom two, goals from Jeremy Kornhauser, Andy Miller, Dan Ruckin and Paul Lenchner inspired Scrabble to a 4-2 win over HMH, with Alex Bourne striking twice for HMH.


Table-topper EHRS bounced back from last week’s first league defeat of the season as two goals from Ashley Davidson helped them to a 6-1 win over Brady B. James Bloom, Malcolm Joseph, Martin Seifert and Ian Leader rounded off the scoring for the leaders, Gary Rose scored Brady’s consolation.

St John’s Wood Tigers beat Temple Fortune by the same score, thanks to a brace apiece from Jason Bentley and Steve Gold and one each from John Perloff and Adam Soller. Yali Mamouri replied for Fortune.

Moving ominously up the table to challenge EHRS are Lions B, who are now second after their 4-1 victory over Marshside. Danny Schindler, Bradley Lazarus, Max Radford and Craig Henry scored for Lions, with Marshside’s solitary reply coming from an own goal.



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”
