Hendon were written off by many, but saved the best for last

By Danny Caro, May 21, 2015

The heat was off Hendon United after I tipped AFC Flixton to win the Peter Morrison Trophy and manager David Garbacz was delighted spectators at Oldham Athletic saw "the real Hendon".


Final line-ups confirmed, so may best teams win

There’s been a marvellous community feel to the last couple of weeks of Maccabi football. Back-to-back Sundays of important league and cup matches at Rowley Lane have been a sight to behold, with supporters, from the very young to the very old, watching their loved ones achieve their sporting goals.


Raiders were always tasty. Now they're just different gravy

By Danny Caro, April 23, 2015

As a former Norstar London Raiders player and manager, I'm delighted the boys have finally got the monkey off their backs.

They have shown tremendous character to bounce straight back from last year's heartbreak, when Hendon United Sports Club denied them in both league and cup competitions.


Super Sunday will really separate the men from the boys

By Danny Caro, April 17, 2015

It’s impossible not to dress up what can only be described as a bumper programme of league and cup action in London on Sunday.

It all gets under way at Hazelwood Recreation Ground as Norstar London Raiders A go in search of the point they need to clinch what would be a first-ever MGBSFL Premier Division title against strugglers North West Neasden.


Hendon needed a challenge. Now they have really got one

By Danny Caro, April 13, 2015

Having monopolised the Maccabi football scene for the past few seasons, there’s a danger Hendon United Sports Club A could finish the season empty-handed.

Less than 24 hours after the defeat against Norstar London Raiders A, David Garbacz’s men got the Peter Morrison Trophy draw they didn’t want, Maccabi London Lions Spartans.


Israel knows who to stop. The question is how to stop them

By Danny Caro, March 27, 2015

When you go into a battle, especially one on the sports field, it’s always advisable to be wary of the biggest threats. And that might just be one advantage Israel have right now, ahead of the matches against Wales and Belgium.


Pressure gets to the best of us, David

By Danny Caro, March 20, 2015

No title race is ever complete without a moaning manager. From the Premiership to the MGBSFL, it just adds to the drama.

David Garbacz guarantees five-star box-office entertainment in my online previews and reviews, but it appears that the pressure is finally getting to him after his troops failed to deliver.


Rain stopped play, apparently, but there’s no rush to finish

By Danny Caro, March 10, 2015

North-west London came to a grinding halt on Sunday as cup final fever, and a match at the Emirates, gripped the capital. Only four matches went ahead in the MGBSFL. Some were called off due to waterlogged pitches, but I believe the lure of the aforementioned fixtures stopped other clubs from going that extra mile to get their games played.


The season starts now for big boys

By Danny Caro, March 2, 2015

Three titles done and dusted by February. A little odd, some might say. But the season is far from over… the best is yet to come.


Wizard Wolfson made to feel right at home in Hong Kong

By Danny Caro, February 6, 2015

The pulling power of the JC never ceases to amaze. Just a couple of weeks after I reported that Jamie Wolfson of Norstar London Raiders was going to live Hong Kong, I bring news of a big-money move.

No sooner had Wolfson started to settle down to life in the Far East than did Hong Kong Maccabi FC flex their muscles in the January transfer window and move for the wing wizard.
