There's no ignoring King Kennet this time

Unlucky to miss out seven days ago, Redbridge boss Eilon Kennet gets the nod this time after masterminding the result of Matchday 12 of the JC MSFL season - a 3-1 victory at the home of a resurgent Lions A team.

A brilliant performance from striker Steve Summers, along with notable displays from Ben Graham and Richie Caplin, capped an excellent team performance from the east Londoners.

Kennet got his tactics spot on, and told JC Sport: "I'm very pleased with it went overall. We had a game-plan which the boys carried out very well and we could have gone in at half time more that just one goal up.

"Ironically, Lions' best period was after we got our second goal right at the start of the second half, but as we all know the best form of defence is to attack and once we were 3-1 up, the match was more or less over.

"I always enjoy my return visits to Lions - lots of friendly faces and always a good game of football.

The 'new' Lions will only get better and better, but for now we are a little more experienced and 'professional'.

"Results have been good recently, but it's too early to speculate about the title, as there are quite a few contenders with similar results.

"The more we win the more it becomes a habit, but we aren't a big squad and any injuries will be a setback. For now we look forward to next Sunday."

Lions interim manager Andy Landesberg told JC Sport: "It was back to the real world for Lions. Whilst we had a good percentage of the play today, it was three critical mistakes that cost us today.

"Redbridge are a strong, experienced, quality side and on balance probably deserved the three points."
