Sunday Masters review – week 9


There was a clash of the top-two in Division One, while Temple Fortune claimed their first points of the season in dramatic style in Division Two, writes Jeremy Silverstone


In a ding-dong battle at the top of the table, league leaders Chigwell and second-place North London Raiders battled out a thrilling 4-4 draw. With Raiders 3-1 up going into the final 25 minutes, Chigwell rallied to edge ahead 4-3 before being pegged back in the final minutes. Adam Stolerman’s hat-trick and Adam Barton accounted for Chigwell, though Adam Harvey’s double, along with strikes from Elan Ovits and David Lederman earned Raiders a point.

HMH enjoyed a comfortable 5-0 win over Faithfold, thanks to Dan Swimer’s hat-trick and strikes from Simon Ritterband and James Pincus.

A hat-trick from Scott Warren, plus an own goal helped Brady A to a 4-1 win over Scrabble, who scored through a superb individual strike from Serge Cowan.


A last-minute goal from Phil Mayer gave Temple Fortune their first points of the season as they saw off Brady B.

EDRS kept up their challenge as two goals each from Steve Krieger and Martin Seifert gave them a 4-1 win over Hendon Harriers, for whom Richard Reuben netted.

Lions continue their seemingly inexorable march towards another title goals from Jason Harris, Michael Abraham and David Kyte gave them a seventh successive victory with a 3-1 win over St John’s Wood Tigers, with Perry Somers notching a consolation for Tigers.

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 Newsalso 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.
