Brady Maccabi A beat Faithfold

Late strikes from Mark Herman and Mark Wagman helped Brady Maccabi A clinch part one of a possible double after they overcame a resilient Faithfold in the Henry Swerner Cup final at Wingate & Finchley.

Herman broke the deadlock a minute from time with Wagman sealing the tie a minute into injury time.

Brady manager Daniel Collins said: “It was a very close game in the pouring rain. Faithfold played extremely well from the start. They didn’t let us play our normal style of football and it wasn’t until I moved a number of players around at half time did we get on top.

“Their guest keeper was in inspired form and it wasn’t until I was planning the penalty takers as I thought the game would finish in a draw. Faithfold should be very proud of their performance.”

Brady now need to beat Faithfold again this Sunday to force a play off for the league and the potential double.

Collins said: “My players never gave up and showed the spirit needed if we are to do the double again.”
