FC TEAM SHOW FAITHFOLD WHAT FOUR
FAITHFOLD A 0 FC TEAM A 4
FC Team A recorded their best-ever result to cap off a solid finish season in the Premier Division.

Two goals from striker Richard Salmon plus one apiece from Matt Drage and Jonny Breger completed a 4-0 demolition of Faithfold A.

Faithfold's misery was compounded when captain Alex Levack was sent off.

Delighted FC Team boss Mitch Young told JC Sport: "What a fantastic way to end a great first season in the Premier Division. The boys were brilliant today we scored some well worked goals and defended brilliantly.

"We have taken 11 points out of the last 15 remaining so this really bodes well for next season. We have learnt a lot and I fully believe in the squad and with one or two changes, I fully believe we can make a real go of it.

"I would like to thank Jonny and all the team for their hard work this season. We didn't want it to end the way we were playing, but we will go into pre-season full of confidence.

"Special mentions for Jon Toby who has been an unsung hero and has been outstanding and it is no suprise since Ed Bloom has come in we have looked like a different side. It's a pleasure ot manage these boys and we have loved it !! Bring it on!"

John Nitka's men needed to win the game to pip Norstar A to second place and a dominant second half display did the trick at Enfield Playing Fields.

Jamie Kent, Michael Posner, Alon Heshkorn (2) and Rob Hershkorn (2) were the goal heroes for Brixton in a game where they scored all their goals in the second half.

Redbridge's consolation came through Richie Caplin.

After 55 minutes Rob Hershkorn delivered a defence-splitting pass for Kent to smash the ball home the opener.

The goal calmed Brixton's nerves and they took total control of the game and played some delightful football.

Alon Hershkorn then scored twice (57 & 69), followed by Rob Hershkorn (72 & 78) with substitute Michael Posner scoring in the 75th minute.

Jubilant Brixton boss John Nitka told JC Sport: "After a very nervous first 45 minutes we did not get going, however the second half was a different story.

"Our midfield of Ben Weinberg, George Fierstone and James Kaye controlling the game. A massive thank you to my players and look forward to next season.

"We have had a fantastic year finishing off with back to back promotions from Division Two into the Premiership, as I predicted. Roll on next season!"

Brixton: Jake Doffman, Rob Blackman, Ed Weisz, Sam Franks, James Lee, James Kaye, Ben Weinberg, George Fierstone, Rob Hershkorn, Alon Hershkorn, Jamie Kent. Subs Michael Posner, Gideon Sidi, Simon Lindall, Jamie Gurvitz, Craig Draper
