By Danny Caro, May 29, 2014

Brady Maccabi won the under-10 competition at hte Maccabi 5's in Mill Hill.

A team featuring Ben Tibber, Daniel Dutch, Jordan Smith, Freddie Martin, Taylor Rosen, Sam Meisel and Brandon Roach won all five group matches, including convincing wins over both Alyth teams and both Hendon (HIS) teams and their own Brady under-9’s.

Brady went on to play group phase runners-up Hendon in the final. Having beaten them 3-1 in the group stages, the final was much closer, finishing goalless at the end of normal time.

An extra-time effort from Freddie Martin clinched the trophy for a Brady team who scored 17 goals overall and conceded one.

Sam Meisel was outstanding in goal for Brady, while captain Ben Tibber and Taylor Rosen were both excellent in defence. Jordan Smith sparkled in midfield, while strikers Daniel Dutch and Martin tormented the other teams with their pace and trickery.

Elsewhere, Norstar London Raiders C ended a memorable campaign with victory in the Open tournament.

More than 500 players competed in an event featuring junior players aged nine through to the Masters.

The other winners were: Masters - North West Neasden, U14/U15/U16 – Brady Maccabi White, U13 – Jlads, U11/12 – Brooklyn FC, U9/10 – Brady Maccabi
