HMH boys do it for Grazioli

A second-half onslaught put paid to Manchester’s hopes in Oldham

A second-half onslaught put paid to Manchester’s hopes in Oldham

Strikes from Jake Norton, Aaron Benjamin, George Goldberg and Josh Dreyfuss secured the Under 14 Harris Balcomb Trophy as Highgate & Muswell Hill overcame Manchester Maccabi 4-1 at Boundary Park.

The Londoners forged ahead only to be pegged back at the break. The second half was a different story as they upped their game, scoring three times and hitting the woodwork.

Victory capped an excellent season for last year's double winners, who recently finished third in the Watford Friendly League Blue Division.

HMH manager Avi Goldberg said "The boys showed great determination, courage and skill to overcome a spirited Manchester side to finish off a great season in style.

"They were determined to show their outgoing coach Giuliano Grazioli just how good they really were."
