Men and masters to compete in new Maccabi cup competition

MASTERSBALLWEBThe League chairman’s of the MGBSFL and Masters League have announced a new cup competition which will feature sides from both divisions.

Held in order to extend the season for both Division One Masters and MGBSFL teams, the new competition will feature sides who have either finished their season or have just a few matches remaining.

Four teams from each League have been invited to participate and will play in two groups, with the top two teams progressing to a semi-final.

Masters chairman Stuart Lustigman said: “For some teams the season has finished too early.  We have pitches and referees available so why not take advantage of the situation?  It is also an opportunity to showcase the Masters League in the hope that more players and teams will come join us when the time is right.”

MGBSFL chairman David Woolf added: “It’s an ideal opportunity for a few of our teams to extend their season and compare their abilities with older opposition. I really hope that everyone enjoys this experience. It should be great fun.”

Group A:
Scrabble (incorporating Southgate Harmen) – MMFL
Hendon United Sports Club  ‘B’ – MGBSFL
Brady Maccabi – MMFL
Faithfold ‘B’ – MGBSFL

Group B:
Waldaf Town – MMFL
Jewdinese – MGBSFL
N L Raiders – MMFL
Norstar NL Raiders ‘B’ – MGBSFL

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
