The race for Fogelman reaches boiling point

Richard Fogelman has put every Maccabi Masters League team on red alert with his recent announcement that he will be plying his trade with the older boys this season.
After a staggering 42 goals in 16 matches for L'Equipe last season in the MGBSFL, the 2014/15 golden boot winner and Division Three player of the year is hot property.
Fogelman was recently spotted eating his favourite schnitzel in Mill Hill Park cafe and JC Sport managed to get a few words from him: "I had an agreement with my wife that the recent birth of our second son would result in me hanging up my boots for the forthcoming season," he said. "I have somewhat gone back on my word and decided to play masters which I see as a compromise due to games being played every other week."
Front-runners for his signature include Waldaf Town. Fogelman not only has a few good friends in this team, but "anyone knows a Waldorf salad is the perfect accompaniment for any shnitzel". There is the prospect of him forming a strike partnership with Alex Bourne and there is no doubt that a shnitzel-Bourne wrap could get messy for any defence.
North London Raiders are joint favourites for Fogelman's signature, with the likes of Gabriel John and Bray Hochenberg attempting to do everything they can to reform old partnerships. It must be noted that he was recently spotted at a Raiders training session in Mill Hill Park.
The likes of David Garson has also been spotted trying to schmooze Fogelman in Mill Hill synagogue while they sit in the kids service talking about the mouth-watering partnership with him and Daryl Phillips for Fairhfold.
If Fogelman can average three a game in the MGBSFL then there is no doubt he will score bucket loads for whatever masters team he picks. I'm sure he's already licking his lips at the prospect of once again setting a new goal-scoring record in a season.
