JC MSFL rumour mill: March 16

London Maccabi Lions A managers Malcolm Newman and Josh Newman will be offered a new three-year deal following an excellent first year in charge.

JC Sport understands North West Neasden have drawn up a shortlist identifying managerial targets. Josh Rosenfeld is believed to be top of the list.

Norstar boss Phil Peters will make a fresh bid for Woodford Wanderers hotshot Jerome Marks this summer.

Oakwood have failed in a cheeky bid to fly defender Louis Basger straight in to the Armitage for Sunday's Peter Morrison Trophy semi-final against South Manchester Maccabi Sports Club. The move was scuppered by South Manchester chairman Jonny Davis, who told JC Sport: "There's more chance of me landing on the moon."

Five Premier Division teams have sounded out Shirley Park star man Nicky Plotnek, who has just been selected for the first Olim League Representative Team.

Athletico Finchley star Andrew Greenwall Cohen has denied rumours that he's considering applying for a place on BBC Strictly Come Dancing after winning the JC MSFL Celebration of the Week award for his sharp moves against Glenthorne last Sunday.

Neasden C are considering a move for Temple Fortune B strikers Terry Jeffries and Joey Glynne. NWN player-manager Louis Taylor told JC Sport: "We need more fire-power next season."

Raiders attacker Adam Posner was spotted having lunch with Norstar manager Phil Peters on Friday.

Athletico Finchley look set to make a shock bid in the summer to sign Norstar A star Simon Perlmutter. 'Perli' could make the shocking swap from Orange to Red to team up with his cousin Zach Margolin - The Athletico Finchley chairman. It is believed Norstar will do anything in their power to keep their five-star skills striker, but the family connection with Athletico may prove too strong.
Gideon Rabstein (Athletico Manager) told JC Sport: "Margolin has been working on this signing all season. It would be a shock move as Norstar have promotion to the Premier League in their sights, but as they say - family comes first!"
