Israel Eli-vated by Guttman's total football

By Danny Caro, November 24, 2014

After several false dawns, it appears that the Israel national team are on the up. A close inspection of the post-match comments from the manager and some of the players and you will find one common theme — the word “team”.


Just think, Morrison madness could’ve been easily avoided

By Danny Caro, November 14, 2014

In an age where the amateur game is struggling, numbers-wise, the burden of extra cost and commitment is something that appeals to very few clubs right now.

Further up the ladder, the JPT remains sectional in the early stages before opening up in the latter rounds, with the prize for the two finalists a big day out at Wembley.


Gershfield has turned Harmen into serious contenders

By Danny Caro, November 10, 2014

If ever a club made a statement of intent, signing James Gershfield, Jake Gottlieb and Max Shields was it.

Harmen’s pulling power has blown the MGBSFL title race wide open and it will certainly make the next few months an exciting contest for the neutral.


Shooting star Scott is off the mark. Now watch him go

By Danny Caro, November 3, 2014

It was only three minutes … but it’s a start. Scott Kashket’s cameo appearance for Leyton Orient in the defeat against Preston North End saw him join the likes of Dean Furman and Joe Jacobson as Jews playing in the Football League.


Tired? You don’t know the half of it, Raheem

By Danny Caro, October 24, 2014

It was approaching 11pm as we trickled out of Rowley Lane. After a roller-coaster of a season, it was fitting that London Maccabi Vale’s AGM was a little rocky. But in the end, there was a general feeling of satisfaction that the right decisions had been made and the right people were in place to take the club forward.


The magic of the Morrison

By Danny Caro, October 13, 2014

There is something quite unique about the blend of players involved in this season’s Peter Morrison Trophy competition.

On one hand, you have players at, shall we say, the twilight of their careers. And on the other, you have young boys just starting out in the men’s game.


Mercurial Madanes a real star

By Danny Caro, October 3, 2014

The opening weeks of the MGBSFL season have featured some eye-catching performances, both individually and collectively.

The early signs are pointing towards Norstar London Raiders, defending champions Hendon, Oakwood and a much-improved Harmen pushing for honours, while it would be foolish to write off former winners Faithfold and Redbridge altogether.


Reds must dust themselves down and go again

By Danny Caro, September 24, 2014

All good things come to an end, as the old saying goes, but Hendon United’s defeat against Faithfold is bound to have hit manager David Garbacz hard.


Home is where the heart is for Maxi

By Danny Caro, September 19, 2014

I sensed the feeling of unfinished business when Michael Klinger committed another campaign to Gloucestershire CC.

Having had his season cut short by injury, the former Maccabiah star is now settling into his new home in Perth after moving from South Australia to Western Australia.


Dovi’s not a gamble. He’s a winner

By Danny Caro, September 12, 2014

There is something quite exciting about Dovi Fehler’s transition from big fish in a small pond to MGBSFL galactico.

Plucked from the depths of Division Three, he’s fresh, hungry and ready to make a name for himself in the top-flight.
