YOUR WEEKEND REVIEW STARTS HERE:

LONDON SUNDAY FA CHALLENGE CUP

FC TRIPENI 5 FAITHFOLD A 2
A depleted Faithfold team tumbled out of the LFA Senior Cup following a crushing 5-2 defeat against former winners FC Tripeni.

Mike Pearson and Jake Gottlieb registered for Faithfold.

Superhoops boss Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport; "It was a disappointing performance. We struggled with numbers, had three defenders out and then Dan Howard came off injured at half time. We didn't really get going and our game was not the same standard we have set."

-------------------------------

EASY LIKE SUNDAY MORNING
HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A 4 MILLWALL ALBION 0
Hendon marched into the next round of the LSFACC courtesy of strikes from Yishai Last (2), Greg Corin and Danny Kon as they proved too strong for Millwall Albion.

Jubilant Hendon boss David Garbacz told JC Sport: ""In truth, I thought Millwall would be stronger than they were, but we made them look pedestrian and the only negative was with some of our finishing.

"We have not gone far in this competition in recent seasons, but there is genuine belief that this year we can go on a good run and who knows where that might take us."

Michael Kenley bagged a brace as Brady climbed into third spot with a 3-1 victory over Camden.

There was also one for Alex Hershman as Brady registered their fourth win of the season.

Brady joint-manager Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "We had a very young team out today with seven of the starting 11 19 or under, and they showed great maturity when in possession especially in the first half as they dictated the game.

Guy Marks netted for Camden whose manager Josh Marks told JC Sport: "It was a very disappointing result."

REDBRIDGE MAKE THEIR POINT
FC TEAM A 2 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 2
A stoppage time effort from Adam Stolerman earned Redbridge a point in a thrilling contest against FC Team in a match moved to Fairlop.

RJC's Jack Vangelder had cancelled out FC Team's opener but the north Londoners thought they had won it with a late goal, only for Stolerman to deny them in the final seconds.

Team's goals came through Tom Miller and Adam Rones.

RJC boss Sam Rosenthal told JC Sport: "I have mixed emotions over the point. We were camped in their half the whole of the second half and should have finished them off. That said we thought we were going to be done by the ultimate smash and grab."

FC Team boss Mitch Young told JC Sport: "Once again we arrived in Redbridge without a goalkeeper and no substitutes, however we found ourselves seconds away from beating them. I am very happy with the performance and the way we defended as a team."

GREEN MACHINE KNOCKS OVER LIONS WHITE

Lions Blue completed a memorable early season double over Anekstein holders Lions White, with a Dan Green double setting them up.

Central defender Nick Astaire was also on the mark for Jamie Kyte's troops.

Sam Shooter netted for Lions White.

LML Blue boss Jamie Kyte told JC Sport: "It was a well-fought game and perhaps a flattering scoreline. We were lucky not to concede after the Whites got behind our backline on numerous occasions, but David Kosky was quick off his line on both occasions smothering the ball away."

An LML White spokesman told JC Sport: "Sunday’s display against Lions Blue was a fantastic performance - on and off the pitch - from a squad that contained nine players aged 16 to 17."

Oakwood's strikes came through Bobby Cousins and an own goal from Dan Grossman.

NLR boss Phil Peters told JC Sport: "I don’t think I’ve ever felt happier about three points in all my years managing in Jewish football, nor have I ever felt my heart pound so fast."

Oaks joint-manager Ric Blank told JC Sport: "We were masters of our own downfall. This season we've completely outplayed Faithfold and lost, contrived to throw away points in the 93rd minute against Brady and now Raiders. I have a fantastic group of lads at my disposal at this club and I don't take that for granted. But now we need to come together, put the team first, get a result against Camden and start climbing up that league table."

We should have been at least 2-0 up when the C’s equalised and then had another great chance to be 2-1 ahead before we switched off for two minutes and allowed them to score twice. The difference was that they took their chances and we squandered too many of ours."

Oaks boss Ian Tussie told JC Sport: "In the summer I felt like Moses having led the boys to The Promised Land, but after a difficult start it's time to be more like Noah and save the animals from the storm."

CRAWFORD LATE SHOW BREAKS FAITHFOLD'S HEARTS
FAITHFOLD C 2 LOUGHTON ORIENT 3
A last-gasp strike from Jamie Crawford saw Loughton Orient claim their second victory of the season as they edged out 10-man Faithfold at Chase Lodge.

Faithfold top-scorer Dan Gordon missed a first-half penalty as Loughton keeper Marc Jacobs diverted the ball over the bar, but the home side went into the break a goal to the good thanks to a low drive from Ben Simons.

Loughton started the second half well, with Josh Hambling's thunderbolt volley from outside the box and a stunning overhead kick from central defender Dean Silver put them ahead. Faithfold equalised with a bullet header from Josh Barnett, but Crawford settled the contest soon after Gordon was sent off.

Loughton player-manager Dan Curtis told JC Sport: "We needed this win today. It's not been the start to the season we were hoping for but hopefully this result will kickstart us."

Faithfold player-manager David Garson told JC Sport: "To lose in the last 30 seconds was harsh in what was a well contested game. However, we know if we play like we did in the first half the results will come."

The match was marred by an injury to Boca's Dan Ezra who suffered a dislocated shoulder following a bad fall in the process of scoring. We wish him all the best.

L'Equipe co-manager Josh Lewis told JC Sport: "Following our first defeat of the season last week, it was important to get back to winning ways and we did just that. I also wanted wish the Boca right winger well as he went down with a bad injury in the last 15."
