HAMMERS LAND LAUFFER
Hendon United Sports Club A have landed a major coup after signing Team GB gold medal winner Ben Lauffer. Hendon boss David Garbacz said: "We are delighted to have persuaded Ben to make the short journey to the Hendon ranks. He is a major signing for us and is one of the best Jewish footballers in the country. He has lots of good mates in the team and should settle in well." And in a warning to Hendon's Premier Division rivals, Garbacz warned: "Expect at least two more major coups before the new season commences."

------------------------------------------

NEASDEN FLEX MUSCLES WITH TWO BIG SIGNINGS
Neasden A have announced two big signings after landing Paul Babai and Jonny Haik from Premier Division rivals Faithfold A. The pair were key players in the Faithfold team that were runners-up in the Peter Morrison Trophy and finished third in the MSFL.

SHINDLER RETURNS TO NEASDEN
Scott Shindler, the JC MSFL Division Two Player of the Year, has explained his reasons for leaving Temple Fortune A after just one season to return to former double winners Neasden A. Shindler told JC Sport: "I want to play at the highest level I can, with good quality players whilst getting first-class training from Darren Yarlett. My year at TFFC was a fantastic year and I hope they have another successful year and challenge well in Division One. I wish them all the very best."

------------------------------------------

REDBRIDGE SIGN ITALIAN STALLION
Double winners Redbridge Jewish Care have beefed up their squad with the signing of MSFL Golden Boot winner Fabio Rivieccio from Glenthorne United. The deal is the first under new manager Eilon Kennet.

------------------------------------------

ENGEL STEPS DOWN AT HARMEN
Mark Engel has stepped down as manager of Southgate Harmen B. Engel was in management with the club for two years, one as assistant to Dan Sasto and one as the manager. Engel told JC Sport: "I enjoyed the challenge very much, and particularly last season where we survived relegation with eight minutes of the season to go. The players and the club have been wonderful however, I just can't dedicate the time to keep moving the club forward, due to work commitments. I will be leaving the management in capable hands of Marc Cohen. My future plans are not yet decided but I am sure I will be involved one way or other on Sunday mornings."

------------------------------------------

RUMOUR MILL

After an extremely strong pre-season, Brixton have flexed their muscles and it appears that they are closing in on Daniel Shafron to complete their squad this season. After a long summer of deliberation for Shafron it appears that he now has to make his mind up on his future in the MSFL.

------------------------------------------

Following the news that they will be sponsored by The JC next season, Chigwell Athletic are ready to make a record-breaking MSFL offer to lure Alex Levack from Faithfold A. Chigs chief Richard Slater, the midfielder’s brother-in-law, is prepared to blow his summer budget on the Team GB stalwart now he knows that he will not have to cough up on a new kit. A determined Slater told JC Sport: "We're not going to let this go until we get our man."

------------------------------------------

Double winners Redbridge Jewish Care were devastated to hear that Daran Bern, a leading contender for JC MSFL Player of the Season, is leaving Jewish football to play with friends in the Harlow Sunday League next season.

------------------------------------------

Blizzard Storm have pulled off a major coup after wonderkid Shai Revivo agreed to join from Premier Division giants North West Neasden A. Revivo informed his teammates of his desire to play for the Division Four runners-up, in which he will accompanied by former JFS FC teammate Sean Ladier. Simon Linden, the Blizzard boss, has expressed his delight in landing one of the rising stars in the Jewish game. He told JC Sport: "I'm thrilled to have Shai on board. He has the bags of ability and will fit in very well to the good side we have here."

------------------------------------------

Josh and Malcolm Newman have reportedly given their wish-list to London Maccabi Lions chairman Adam Solomons. They include Neasden wonder kid George Fierstone, Glenthorne's Fabio Revieccio and Los Blancos' Dany Kon.

------------------------------------------

It is not yet known whether or not Cohen has chosen to accept the offer, with Danny Caro, joint-manager of North London Raiders (Cohen's current club), anxiously waiting to hear the decision.

It's rumoured that Los Blancos have also come in for Cohen, stating the club intention of Peter Morrison semi-final, promotion as champions from whichever division they end up in and Cyril Anekstein final. Cohen is still to accept or reject their offer.

What we are hearing here at JC Sport is that Dan Cohen, MSFL Rep Team and North London Raiders A goalkeeper, is intending to hang up his gloves to concentrate on coaching and refereeing. We understand he'll register for Los Blancos, where his cousin Adam is captain, and play one in three upon his return from coaching in Seattle, America.

------------------------------------------

Here is the word coming out of the Glenthorne United camp. Joshua Hambling, Adam Kantor and Craig Mervish have all moved to north London to play for Norstar B, while Matthew Geppert has retired.

It went on to say: "We have no idea who Joshua Hambling, Adam Kantor and Craig Mervish and are not currently in the market for anyone from East London."

In other news, after featuring in the Norstar end-of-season trophy, the club confirmed they are considering an approach for the Leader twins and Adam Posner from North London Raiders. Posner's ability to score rubbish free-kicks is truly breathtaking.

------------------------------------------

Over-rated, glory-hunting, lazy lower league striker Richard Fogelman is looking for a way out of Jewventus. He told JC Sport: "I've loved every minute at Jewve but feel I have one move left inside me." Blizzard Storm boss Simon Linden has been alerted.

------------------------------------------

There are big rumours coming out of Neasden that, after a disastrous year, they have called upon the services of Joshua Hambling. A Thornes insider told JC Sport: "The guy is tenacious, quick and has scored memorable goals for Glenthorne B. He is a real asset and only played at that level to help his mates."

Also Ashley Stanton is due to leave Glenthorne due to Paul Biller. Biller is the key to Glenthorne's left-hand side in next year's second division.

Any news on transfers will come from us directly."

------------------------------------------

Josh Cohen is considering going in to management at Redbridge.

Joshua Hambling has decided to hang up his boots at Glenthorne due to on going arguments with ex-managers Elliot Coulton and James Law. Craig Sandford has come in and decided he wants fresh faces and new talent and unfortunately Joshua Hambling does not live up to his expectations.

Daniel Shafron is on his way out of Glenthorne. Rumour has it that he is angry with current managers Dave Blitz and Dan Lipman at the fact Paul Biller will be the main left winger next season; this will also spell the end of Ashley Stanton’s glittering career.

At the Glenthorne meeting it was confirmed Daniel Shafron wan first prize for worst miss of the season.

Fabio Rivieccio is on the verge of putting pen to paper to join newly-crowned league champions Redbridge Jewish Care A.

------------------------------------------

Richard Bronzite has confirmed that Daniel Gordon will remain at RJC next season. He told JC Sport: "I believe recent press speculation is due to translation problems. He is fully committed to our club."

Paul Lenchner is a big target for RJC this season

------------------------------------------

Glenthorne duo Josh Wynne and Jay Lawrence are having talks with RJC.

Daniel Shafron has been offered a contract by RJC.

------------------------------------------

Brady Maccabi manager Josh Rosenfeld has gone on the record as to his summer plans. He told JC Sport: "After spending the week in Spain for Lee Cash's wedding, I am pretty confident of securing the services of Scott Shindler to Brady. I was with Scott all week and he told me how excited he would be to join the club. I am also confident of Daniel Cole returning to the club he always loved.

Rosenfeld added: "One of my main targets of the season is European futsal player Jonathon Green. I believe he will be a huge addition to the squad and wish him luck in Rome.

Finally, he confirmed what all Brady fans wanted to hear, that Josh Hershman has stated he will never leave Brady.

------------------------------------------

Reports coming in say that Jonathan Meltzer is desperate to join Glenthorne B.

Responding to the rumours, Meltzer told JC Sport: "If an opportunity opened up and it was a deal that suited both clubs then of course anything is possible. But I am happy at Inter Borehamwood and like the fans. But football is a strange game ..."

------------------------------------------

A source at Rowley Lane has told me that former Neasden A captain Jon Ellis is close to agreeing a move to Lions A next year after leaving the ex-league champions by mutual consent.

Other reports claim that Ellis will join Brady Maccabi, who will find out in the coming weeks if they will be promoted.

Neasden joint-manager Darren Yarlett is raiding Faithfold for two top players and Lions A for one.

Yarlett has confirmed that Dan Cole, Kyle Bentwood, Danny Daggers, Sammy Ross, Lee Cash, Jake Gottlieb, Max Shields, Bradley Sharp, Mark Lazare and Elliot Stern have all signed new deals at Neasden.

------------------------------------------

Josh Ejdelbaum has stood down as manager of Athletic Bilbaum. Mark Pasha and Edward Green will lead the team next season.

------------------------------------------

Joel Kutner has left Blizzard Storm and joined Los Blancos. Blizzard boss Simon Linden told JC Sport: "We wish him all the best as he is a top player who served this club so well over the last two years."

Meanwhile, Linden is plotting a big announcement over the next few days, big names are being talked about ...

------------------------------------------

L'Equipe's Jason Miller was seen taking part at Temple Fortune's first training session of the season at Mill Hill Park. He is seen as the perfect replacement for striker Ben Isaacs who is out for the season with damaged cruciate knee ligaments.

------------------------------------------

Terry Jeffries and Adam Glekin are the new management team of Temple Fortune B's team in Division 4. They are looking to sign several new faces to improve the squad.

------------------------------------------

NW Neasden C are getting in shape for their second season with some key additions and player retentions. Player-manager Louis Taylor is thrashing out a contract to keep goalkeeper Ed Bloom at the club. He has agreed to play every now and then due to commitments to Saturday football, but Taylor is hoping the Neasden C team spirit will see him turn out for us on a regular basis.

Multiple trophy winner Adam Levene has signed on to play another season as well as club player of the year Richie Braham.

With interest from lots of players to join the club, it looks like it could be another successful season for Neasden C after their promotion to Division 3.

------------------------------------------

Norstar have released a statement to confirm that the position of manager Jonny Bunt is not under threat. It read: "Despite the rumours, the Norstar FC board can confirm that they have every faith in Jonny Bunt's ability to manage the club." Statement ends ...
