North West Neasden A vs Camden Park
This is now turning into a very good season indeed for anyone connected to Camden Park.
Last weekend they booked their place in the hat for the quarter-finals of the Peter Morrison Trophy following a terrific win over Liverpool Haroldeans.
They left it late though, with goals in the last 10 minutes from Mike Khalastchi and Guy Marks taking them through. And if they can get a home draw, they will fancy themselves against most teams.
The thing about Camden this season is that they are sharing the goals around. Richard Silver is a regular goal-getter but manager Josh Marks knowing his players are capable of springing up from all positions.
Having claimed six wins from their first nine games in Division One this season, Marks knows they have plenty to do if they are to gatecrash the promotion party.
Currently lying in fourth spot, they make the trip to an experienced Neasden team who were on the receiving end of a 5-2 defeat against leaders Shirley last Sunday.
If there were two positives to take out of the game, the first was the performance of Adam Klein who looked right at home in the middle of the park. “I bossed it,” Kleiny was heard telling Hodes after the game. Yeah, you keep believing that Kleiny!
The other thing that struck me was a goal scored by Jonathan ‘JC’ Cohen. It also found the top corner/top bins, postage stamp. JC certainly hasn’t hit many better than that and now that he has the bit between his teeth, Camden beware. That is the message.
But Camden will fancy getting behind a NWN defence featuring Phil Smith, Jon Kaye, Adam ‘Shaggy’ Leveson and Daniel Lack.
As long as they get their shape and their attitude is spot on, my money would be on another Camden win.
