Cole to step down at end of the season

Jamie Cole, manager of North West Neasden A, has confirmed that he will step down at the end of the season.

His decision comes on the back of a disappointing season when the club failed to win silverware for the first time in several years.

Under Cole, Neasden have dominated Jewish football in recent times, completing an unprecedented hat-trick of league and national cup doubles.

Cole said: "After five years of managing the best club in Jewish football, it is with regret that I have decided to bring the curtain down on my managerial career due to work commitments.

"I have had the best time which involved finishing runners-up in the League and Cyril Anekstein Cup final in my first season, then winning the treble-double which included winning the league and Peter Morrison Cup in each of the following three seasons, leading the Rep Team to success - a record that any manager in the world would be proud of.

"That Neasden side was the best I have ever managed and one which broke all records. I have no doubt that such a feat will never be repeated. They say winning a trophy is easy but defending it is the hard bit, and it just goes to show the character of and hard work put in by everyone at the club. Quite simply they are all born winners.

"I would like to thank all of the players, my joint manager Daniel Fox, coach Darren Yarlett, Chairman Sammy Carr, David Woolf and the MSFL and all of the parents who supported us every week.

"I shall remain involved at Neasden in some capacity and hope to oversee some exciting changes at the club."
