Last season’s Premier Division winners Hendon United A

AND SO the wait is nearly over. Sunday morning sees the start of the men’s Jewish football season! The big question in the Premier Division is can anyone stop the Hendon juggernaut which claimed a league and cup treble last season. And the signs don’t look too promising at this stage, as not only have Hendon signed one of the best up-and-coming youngsters in Dovi Fehler, managers of the other sides in the division aren’t exactly exuding confidence that they can overhaul them. There does though seem to be more of a competitive edge in the other three divisions, with a handful of teams in each believing they can lift the title come May. And as Sunday morning heralds the start of the men’s season, the afternoon sees the kick-off to the Jewish News Maccabi Junior Football League. With more teams and players than last season, each week will see up to 600 kids taking to state-of-the-art pitches at Barnet’s Hive and The Ark Academy in Wembley. And once more jewishnews.co.uk will be the place to find all the fixtures, results, match reports, photos and video highlights.

WHILE Arsenal fans may have been hoping Arsene Wenger was spending Monday night trying to tie up a few more signings, he was instead in Rome managing one of the sides in the “Match for Peace” at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. The exhibition match involved players from different cultures and religions: Jewish, Buddhist, Christian (Catholic, Protestant, Evangelic), Hindu, Muslim and Shinto. The match, to promote peace, was organised by the Pope, with the proceeds going to Scholas, a project that aims to connect schools and educational networks from different cultures and beliefs from around the world. Israeli striker Tomer Hemed was on target, as the Pope’s team lost 6-3. And Wenger signed Danny Welbeck.
