MSFL still thriving, says Wolff

David Wolff, chairman of the Maccabi (Southern) Football League, has confirmed that six new teams will be joining the league for the 2011/12 season.

Athletic Finchley, Brady Maccabi B, Brixton Old Boys B, Boca Jewniors, FC Team C and SPEC will join Division Four, taking the league up to 51 teams.

Pinner JFC, Real Life and Zig Zag have withdrawn.

Wolff said: "This proves that the league is still thriving. It's always good to see fresh blood and things are looking really good.

"We have a good product although I would like to see the number of teams climb above the 60 mark. We also provide a full quota of referees which is not something that all amateur leagues can say."

Only one of the proposals recommended by the Advisory Committee, a working party set up by the clubs, was adopted by the league's AGM.

Lester Jacobs, a committee representative, said: "I was very disappointed with how our recommendations were met. It was as though no one had heard of them before.

"We set the committee up for the clubs but if they don't want us we won't bother.

"We'll call another meeting and see where we want to go from there."
