Neasden frustrated by red-hot Reggel

North West Neasden B and North London Raiders A claimed a win apiece in a JC MSFL Division One double-header.

Neasden won the opener 3-0 thanks to goals from Kane Swerner (2) and Rob Lerner.

They forged ahead in the second match courtesy of a long-range strike from Ryan Sher. Recent signing Richie Reggel turned the game on its head with a hat-trick, including his first goal since his move from Bafana Bafana, with Andrew Benson adding the other in a 4-2 win. Sher completed the scoring.

Neasden joint-manager Ryan Glynne said: “Unfortunately the bad weather during the middle of the season has hindered us as double-headers are proving a real issue. We will try to address it and finish the season on a high.”

Speaking about game two, Raiders boss Adam Fegan said: “Given that we were missing nine players from the team that beat Manchester, this was arguably our best victory of the season.”
