Hendon are now in the driving seat to retain their league and cup treble

THE BIG MATCH of the weekend may have disappointed in terms of spectacle, but there was no doubting its result will have serious ramifications as to who wins silverware at the end of the season. Prior to their 1-0 win at the weekend, Hendon manager David Garbacz said the winner would go on to win the treble, and he doesn’t seem to have changed his view since. “We believe we have the talent and more importantly belief to do it again,” he says. “It would be a remarkable achievement that’s for sure.” Remarkable it would be, though no doubt Norstar – and Neasden in the semi-final of the Anekstein Cup – have something to say about it.

AVRAM GRANT continues to be widely sought after with South Africa reportedly showing their interest in acquiring the Israeli as their technical manager. Even though Bafana Bafana’s interest isn’t ‘official’, Ghanaian FA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie Daara has gone on record to say: “He has a contract binding him to Ghana for the next two years. We have the advantage and if anything like that should happen, we will fight. But, we don’t expect him to leave because Grant has given us his word.” Grant, who must be experiencing this ‘flavour of the month’ for the first time in his managerial career has only just played down interest from West Ham and has said he intends to see out his contract with Ghana.

BACK IN March 2014 we ran a back page story with the caption ‘Is this the worst challenge ever made in football?” And while Ryan Shawcross, Martin Taylor or Roy Keane could give Maccabi Haifa’s Ruben Rayos a run for his money, the challenge on Bnei Yehuda’s Rafi Dahan was definitely not one to be seen by the squeamish. The repercussions of that tackle nearly a year ago have finally come to an end – but there is no happy ending. Dahan, 25, was last week told by doctors his career’s over as he will never fully recover from the anterior cruciate ligament damage inflicted on him. A tragic end to what was a tragic moment of madness.
