TEAM OF THE WEEK:

————————–

GOAL OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS:

1) Ben Winters (Maccabi London Lions B) – A deft touch saw him lift the ball over the full-back, before he ran into the box, kept his composure and fired home

2) Benji Weinberger (Maccabi London Lions B) – Gained possession 30 yards out from goal, took a few touches of the ball before unleashing an unstoppable effort into the far top corner

3) Liron Mannie (North London Raiders A) – Jake Doffman found Matt Stock with a clearance, who in turn made a darting run, which resulted in him passing to Mannie, who smashed a shot into the top corner from 25 yards

4) Jordan Sharifia (Temple Fortune) – An overhead kick from 20 yards which was described as ‘an unbelievable effort and contender for goal of the season’.

5) Rob Samuelson (North London Raiders C) – Let fly with a stunning strike from just outside the box

————————–

SAVE OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS:

1) Bradley Segal (Finchley City) – Superbly tipped over the bar a venomous strike from Michael Kenley

2) Scott Shear (Redbridge B) – Faced with a Los Blancos striker bearing down on goal, produced a great stop

————————–

QUOTE OF THE WEEK NOMINATIONS:

1) Rob Shooman (Faithfold B): “They played well, they can only play what’s in front of them. Unfortunately today, their opposition was CRAP – and we paid the price!”

2) David Garbacz (Hendon United A): “We’re playing with lots of confidence at the moment and it will take an extremely good team to stop us this year.”

3) Jonathan Nesbitt (Hendon United B): “We’ve now won two and lost two in the league which is probably fair as we have turned up for two of the games and been away with the fairies for the other two. Lets just hope the fairies don’t make a return this season.”

SUNDAY CHALLENGE CUP FIRST ROUND:
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 6 ANORTHOSIS 2
Raiders got their Sunday Challenge Cup campaign off to an emphatic start as four goals from Liron Mannie helped them to this win.

David Dinkin and Jordan Marks were also on target for Dan Shaffron’s side, who told jewishnews.co.uk: “Our performance today was once again excellent all round.

“We were up against a side we knew nothing about, but we took the game to them and got the goals that our attacking play deserved. We got in to some great positions and when the chances came, we finished them off superbly.

“Liron and Stocky linked brilliantly for each of our four first half goals, we played with confidence and urgency. We did gift them a goal after 20 seconds, but credit to the boys because they showed great character to keep their heads, turn things back around quickly and then at that point, we went on to win the game comfortably.”

PREMIER DIVISION:

FIXTURES & RESULTS:
TABLE:

FC TEAM A WOODFORD WANDERERS 3
Team claimed their first win – and points of the season – as they moved off the bottom of the table.

Lorian Madanes and Richard Salmon scored two each, with two own goals sealing their win.

Player-manager Mitch Young told jewishnews.co.uk: “It has been an extremely tough start to the season having nine players out through injuries, however we welcomed one or two defenders back today as well as Ed in goal and our two new signings slotted in nicely.

“It was a much-needed morale-boosting victory and we should have scored double figures. It was nice to see us boss the game and I was happy with the overall application. This result will kick-start our season and we just will take one game at a time knowing that with a settled team we can be a match for anyone.”

————————–

HENDON UNITED A MACCABI LONDON LIONS A 1
Hendon remain three points clear at the top of the table after Yoav Kestenbaum’s hat-trick saw them to this impressive win.

Yoav Lebens was also on target, with manager David Garbacz telling jewishnews.co.uk: “From 1-12 we were brilliant today against a pretty strong Lions team.

“We pressed them and harried them without the ball and when we had it we moved it quick and skillfully and created numerous chances. The enigmatic Yoav Kestenbaum was at his brilliant best today with a great hat-trick, but there were strong performances all across the team with Avi Korman leading the way in midfield as we cruised to our fifth straight win in the league.

“We’re playing with lots of confidence at the moment and it will take an extremely good team to stop us this year.”

James Gershfield scored for Lions.

————————–

OAKWOOD A BRADY MACCABI 0
Two goals from Sam Cantor proved to be enough to send the Brady boys to their first defeat of the season.

Joint-manager Daniel Kristall told jewishnews.co.uk: “This was a big win after last week’s cup disappointment. We needed this win to get our season moving again and we are now well placed in the league to challenge.

“After a slow start and escaping Brady’s best chance of the match which arrived in the first minute, I felt we passed a very tough test. I am sure they will take points off some good sides this season.

“Once again, our squad was tested to its maximum but we dug in deep and picked up the points. We had more going forward today but had to make several changes to our defence. I must say Max Clynes who came in for Alex Lee was outstanding, as was Ilan Scorah helping out at left back. We rarely looked in any danger.

“But when Sam (Cantor) plays like that, he is unplayable. There is nobody in the division who can get close to matching him for ability. He was by far the best player on the pitch and deserved his two goals. His movement and the way he brings others into play, gives us another dimension.

“I felt as a team we controlled the game and played some nice stuff. We will only get better in the coming weeks.”

REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 3 CAMDEN PARK 0

Redbridge made it four wins from four as two goals from Dean Nyman, along with Sam Sollosi’s strike saw Jon Jacobs’ side to the points.

(MATCH PHOTOS)
(MATCH REPORT)
Lions made it four wins from four to remain top of the table on goal difference as two goals from Michael Kenley helped them to this emphatic win.

Further strikes from Ben Winters, Joshua Bloom, Dom Feldman and Benji Weinberger wrapped up the win.

Moshe Fehler scored City’s consolation.

————————–

HENDON UNITED B 3 ATHLETIC BILBAUM 0
Hendon claimed a much-needed three points as they piled on the misery for bottom-place Bilbaum.

Adam Ellis fired them ahead, as he latched on to Ronen Wenstein’s through ball, before Gid Barth doubled their lead from the penalty spot, having been brought down in the box.

The points were made safe when Weinstein’s cross was controlled by Ellis, who touched it back to Saul Cohen who hit a sweet left foot shot from the edge of the box and watched as the goalkeeper could only palm it onto the post and in.

Player-manager Jonathan Nesbitt told jewishnews.co.uk: “Overall a very pleasing performance, although we did drop-off towards the end and arguably could’ve came away with a few more goals, with some of the boys missing a few sitters, we can’t really complain.

“It was a great response to poor performance last week, we started on the front foot not giving them time and space on the ball and had many early chances, we knew it was only a matter of time before we scored.

“We’ve now won two and lost two in the league which is probably fair as we have turned up for two of the games and been away with the fairies for the other two. Lets just hope the fairies don’t make a return this season.”

————————–

LOS BLANCOS 1 REDBRIDGE B 2
(MATCH REPORT)
Sam Rank’s side join Lions on 12 points as they also won their fourth consecutive win.

Richie Caplin and Joe Jordan goals saw the Essex men to a battling win.

Joseph Davis scored for Blancos, for whom manager Nick Grosse told jewishnews.co.uk: “We mostly dominated the first half but were unable to convert the three or four decent chances that we created.

“With the scores goalless at half-time, we knew we could win if we kept up[ the intensity. Unfortunately, tiredness began to set in and we conceded from a well worked move finished off with a looping back post header. Although we responded quickly with a Joe Davis penalty, unfortunately a goalkeeping error with about 10 minutes to go meant a loss despite the strong performance.

“I am very upset with myself, I hate to let the team down, even more so now I am manager, but goalkeeping mistakes are always fatal – I still don’t know why I picked that position!

“Nevertheless, I am yet to see a Blancos performance this season that has truly disappointed me. We continue to expect to win every match we play, anything less is a disappointment.”

————————–

NORTH LONDON RAIDERS B 8 FAITHFOLD A 1
Raiders remain joint-top of the table alongside the Lions and Redbridge, albeit having played a game more, thanks to this emphatic win.

Nicky Woolf scored a hat-trick, Simon Buchler chipped in with two, with Jake Gilbert, Elad Hertshten and Will Ufland completing the scoring.

Dan Yossman scored for the Greens, for whom manager Rob Shooman told jewishnews.co.uk: “You can’t win a game with eight players missing, you can’t win a game when you give the opposition six goals through juvenile mistakes that wouldn’t happen in a school playground. I’m very upset at the moment as with a full team the result would have been very different.

“They played well, they can only play what’s in front of them. Unfortunately today, their opposition was CRAP – and we paid the price!”

DIVISION TWO:

FIXTURES & TABLES
TABLE

BOCA JEWNIORS 1 REDBRIDGE C 4
Aaron Goldberg’s
first half hat-trick saw Josh Hambling’s side make it four wins from four.

Daniel Jacobs netted their fourth.

Benjamin Lederman scored for Boca from the penalty spot, with Anton Nyman telling jewishnews.co.uk: “We started the game far too slowly, they scored in their first three attacks and left us looking pretty lost. We fought back well and created some chances, although in the last kick of the half they got a penalty making it four.

“We came out much stronger in the second half, maybe too little too late, but created some meaningful opportunities and got our reward with a timely penalty. If we can take that second half team performance into next week’s game, I think we have a good chance of getting something from it.”

————————–

FAITHFOLD B 2 CATFORD & BROMLEY 1
Catford’s 100 percent winning start to the season was somewhat surprisingly ended by Faithfold.

Josh Barnett and Chaim Bordon scored the goals for David Garson’s side.

————————–

HERTSWOOD VALE 0 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS C 3
Raiders claimed an ultimately comfortable win, as Vale slumped to their fourth straight defeat of the season.

Nick Haringman scored twice, with Rob Samuelson also on target. Joint-manager Sam Rose told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was a fine performance as we returned to winning ways. What was most pleasing was the attractive football we began to play in difficult conditions and the solidity with which the defence performed.

“Raiders are really starting to gel as a team and I think you can expect great things from us for the rest of the season.”

————————–

L’EQUIPE 8 MILL HILL DONS 2
L’Equipe bounced back from conceding nine goals in the Cup last week, by putting eight past the Dons.

James Mandell helped himself to a hat-trick, with Matt Gilbry, Max Martin, Andy Smith, James Bell and an own goal completing the rout.

Richard Hayim and Harry Moss scored for the Dons, for whom manager Brandon Hamme told jewishnews.co.uk: “It was a very solid performance in the first half, but we became to tire in the second half. As the weeks go on and the fitness improves, the results should come.”

————————–

TEMPLE FORTUNE 3 FC TEAM B 1
Fortune got back to winning ways as they moved up into fourth spot thanks to this win over the basement boys.

Brett Stead, Adam Lenz and Jordan Sharifia scored for Simon Linden’s men, who told jewishnews.co.uk: “It’s good to get back to winning ways, it should have really been more comfortable. I’m happy with our first five results. The boys are all looking forward to Catford next, massive game!!! As for Jordan’s goal, you won’t see any better, unbelievable.”
