CYRIL ANEKSTEIN CUP FIRST ROUND (team in brackets represents division of team):
BOCA JEWNIORS (2) 0 FC TEAM B (2) 2
Team claimed their first win of the season as two second half goals from Eitan Ben Zion and Eddie Sternberg saw them book their place in the second round.
Boca’s Elliot Grant told jewishnews.co.uk: “Boca had a wonderful first half, playing from the back and down the wings with some superb chances towards the end of the first half. The defence we excellent and held a high line and every ball the opposition played through were being caught on the offside trap. It was a debut for Josh Edjelbaum who was authoritative and vocal throughout.
“We felt we lacked the attacking prowess needed to score the first goal in the first half and it was the same pattern of play in the second – with high intensity and end to end chances for both teams.
“With the referee not choosing to play a linesman, their first chance on the second half saw what we felt was their striker well offside, he just kicked the ball like he was kicking it away and it went in. Everyone stopped and waited for the whistle but the goal was given. There was similar uncertainty with the second goal – a bad challenge that looked like a head injury saw everyone stop, even the goalkeeper. Their midfielder kicked the ball, our goalkeeper left it and the goal was awarded – play should have been stopped!
BRADY MACCABI 8 FC TEAM A 2
Brady bounced back to winning ways with this emphatic win.
Reiss Mogilner and Dan Cohen scored two each, with Rob Cohen, Daniel Harrod, Ben Kohler and Marc Rister also on target.
HENDON UNITED A 3 CAMDEN PARK 1
Hendon made it four wins from four to remain at the top of the table, while defeat for Camden signaled a third straight defeat.
Zac Lewis, Ari Last and Dovi Fehler scored Hendon’s goals.
Jake Saunders’ stunning striker had drawn Camden level in the first half.
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 6 WOODFORD WANDERERS 0
Raiders hit six goals for the second successive week.
Liron Mannie scored twice, with David Dinkin, Dave Cohen, Ben Ellis and an own goal completing the rout.
Woodford joint-manager Daryl Kay told jewishnews.co.uk: “Again, not much to shout about this week. We had a severely depleted team, with four key first teamers unavailable and although we didn’t concede until around the 40th minute or so, the Raiders front line was too much for us.
“We tested their goalkeeper a few times, but he produced some excellent saves, and we nearly gave ourselves a lifeline at 3-0 but Harrison Midda smashed his penalty over the bar. I’m not saying we’d have won the match, but at 3-1, we could have been well back in the game.
“Sometimes, you have to hold your hands up and say that the other team are just better than us, period. We know the games we can win this season, and I’ll make sure that we do win them, but I will be looking for more of an effort the next time we play Raiders.”
REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 5 MACCABI LONDON LIONS A 1
Redbridge made it three wins from three, as Lions’ 100 percent winning start to the season.
Russell Goldstein helped himself to a hat-trick, with Daniel Garfinkle and James Berkley also on target.
BRIXTON OLD BOYS 1 HENDON UNITED B 6
Hendon claimed their first win of the season in emphatic style thanks in no small part to five goals from Adam Ellis.
Glen Turner scored his first goal in four years, with joint-manager Jonathan Nesbitt telling jewishnews.co.uk: “Overall we are delighted with the result and the performance. We were a little slow out of the blocks, but the determination and energy from the lads today was brilliant, to keep going even after we were three or four up.
“Everyone showed desire to get more, but to also come back and defend when needed. Hats off to Adam Ellis today, he was untouchable and scored one hell of a worldy with his chip! Looks like the Hendon Boys may be having a sweet new year after all.”
Mitch Gerber scored Brixton’s consolation.
FINCHLEY CITY 5 ATHLETIC BILBAUM 1
City claimed their second win of the season, while it was a fourth defeat of the campaign for the visitors.
Daniel Polak scored a hat-trick for the hosts, with Gav Krieger and Alon Pinhas also on target.
Manager Joel Holder told jewishnews.co.uk: “I got the reaction I was looking for after last week’s defeat to Scrabble. The boys started on the front-foot and didn’t allow Bilbaum to settle. We played some good football and were clinical in front of goal. Daniel Polak’s finishing was of the highest quality, whilst Eli Davila put in a superb performance in midfield.
“The boys know that this is the standard we must replicate to win the title this season.”
LOS BLANCOS 1 SCRABBLE 2
Scrabble made it back-to-back wins as they won a tough, physical game.
They took a 30th minute lead when Josh Bharier broke into the Blancos penalty area and placed his shot wide of the goalkeeper’s outstretched arm.
The hosts equalised in the 50th minute, by they weren’t on level terms for long as Dan Stock’s cross was headed home by Danny Sherman ten minutes later.
Manager Ray Abrahams told jewishnews.co.uk: “That’s back to back league wins now and our season is up and running. I thought we controlled the game well today and our defence was so solid. We had a hat-ful of chances to close the game off and with a bit of luck may have scored more on the day. In the end sometimes you have to dig out the win in these type of games and this is what we did today.
“I thought we were denied a penalty as well when Josh Green was brought down by their keeper but we were good for the three points.
“It keeps us in with the leading pack and or target for our aim of back to back promotions. We’ve got a big squad now and a competition for places but the attitude in the group is brilliant and our new signings have fitted in very well.”
Adam Hersh scored for Blancos, for whom manager Nick Grosse told jewishnews.co.uk: “We are all extremely disappointed to have lost. We were completely off the pace all over the pitch, particularly in the first half, which was in stark contrast to our victory last week. I know the players will want to improve and I sincerely hope do in time for next Sunday.
“We were overrun in the first half by an attack-minded Scrabble who were able to break hard and fast. We were 1-0 down at the break and still in with a shout. We improved dramatically in the second half, scoring a scrappy equaliser, however, within three minutes we conceded a very poor goal from a long throw.
“We weren’t good enough in the first half, it’s a simple as that!”
MACCABI LONDON LIONS B 3 FAITHFOLD A 1
The Lions went top of the table on goal difference thanks to goals from Adam Abadi, Joshua Bloomand Daniel Mattey.
Manager Samuel Marchant told jewishnews.co.uk: “A third win in a row in the league is very positive, I couldn’t have asked for more.
“Again we were far from our best, but if you’re to go far in a league campaign, winning when not at your best is vital. We have to take each week as it comes, focus on the next game and work on constantly improving as a unit. I feel our squad has much more to give and it’s about getting every cog in the machine working in unison.
“Next week we face Catford and Bromley in the Cyril Anekstein cup and it will be difficult, preparations will be starting immediately.”
Marc Charles scored for Faithfold.
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS B 0 REDBRIDGE B 4
With both teams going into this game with 100 percent winning starts, something had to give and it was the Raider’s start as they were emphatically beaten by the Essex side.
Richie Caplin, Carl Dobrin, Dean Ben Yosef and Anthony Cope were all on target for the visitors.
Raiders’ joint-manager Jonathan Adelman told jewishnews.co.uk: “I was just pleased we were able to field a side given how many absences we had this week.”
CATFORD & BROMLEY 4 RC UK FC 1
Catford made it four wins from four as the visitor’s indifferent start to the season to the season continued.
Cats did fall behind early on, but an own goal from the home side on level terms going into the break, before Joel Lassman, Callion McGregor and player-manager Jeff Gotch sealed the win.
Gotch told jewishnews.co.uk: “We went behind for the first time this season, I was looking for a response and got it.
“It was also a great send-off for our captain Richard Adams who is off tomorrow to LA to start a new chapter with his fiancé, we wish him well and will miss his presence greatly.”
Player-manager Avi Markiewicz scored FC’s consolation. He told jewishnews.co.uk: “I’m at a loss for words. We dominated the game and were the better team. We just weren’t effective enough in the final third. Unfortunately individual errors were punished and cost us the game.
“We scored a great team goal to take us 1-0 up. Catford went right back down the other end and scored from an own goal out of nowhere. A further two goals that were simple finishes from unchallenged bounces practically on our goal line. Their final goal came from a break right at the end from yet another failed chance.
“You can’t argue with the score line though. We deserved to loose because being the better team means nothing unless you win.
“Catford have been playing with each other for a while and they know each other’s games well, we are a brand new team and are still getting to grips with that, but we will learn and we will be back.”
FAITHFOLD B 8 MILL HILL DONS 0
Seven goals from Richard Fogelman, coupled with Louis Taylor’s strike saw The Greens claim their first win since the opening day of the season.
L’EQUIPE 3 HERTSWOOD VALE 0
L’Equipe made it three wins from three, thanks to goals from Max Martin, Andy Smith and James Mandell.
REAL HENDON 3 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS C 0
Hendon claimed their first win of the season as two goals from player-manager Chaim Gothold inspired them to the points.
Gav Noe was also on target, with Gothold telling jewishnews.co.uk: “It was an excellent performance and result for us to end the year. We didn’t do ourselves justice in our first two games of the season, but today we took our chances and defended resolutely.”
TEMPLE FORTUNE 2 REDBRIDGE C 5
The visitors made it three wins from three, as Fortune fell to their first defeat of the season.
Jimmy Castle helped himself to a hat-trick, with Rafe Neimam and Daniel Jacobs also on target.
Redbridge manager Josh Hambling told jewishnews.co.uk: “Firstly I want to squash any rumours of paparazzi spotting the manager stumbling out of Stratford casino at 4am singing frank Sinatra greatest hits!
“This was far our best display so far this season. I asked the boys to come out the blocks fast and they definitely delivered as we went 2-0 up in 20 minutes. We battered them in the first half and should of registered a few more goals. Some of our movement and work rate was different class. They got a penalty on the stroke of half-time and the one thing that we didn’t want to happen was give them hope.
“The second half started pretty evenly obviously they were still fired up from the penalty and equalised. I think that 10 minute spell was the only time we were on the back foot. We scored straight afterwards then followed with another soon after that. Jimmy castle capping off a fantastic display with a penalty to secure his hatrick and bury the game at 5-2.
“I think our season is well and truly under way after that display and I know the boys don’t fear anyone in this league.”
Jorden Sharafia and Gab Stone scored for Fortune, for whom manager Simon Linden told jewishnews.co.uk: “Our first half performance this morning cost us, it was no way near good enough and to be honest we was lucky to come in at 2-1 down.
“The second half was much better and at 2-2 with 20 minutes to go, I fancied us to go for the win but once that third went in and time was running out, Redbridge took full advantage and scored two goals.
“The better team on the day won the football match – it’s how we bounce back next week that now matters and I’m confident we will.”
