PHILLIPS INSPIRES SUPERHOOPS
FAITHFOLD A 1 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 0
A second-half strike from the evergreen Daryl Phillips kept Faithfold top of the table as they maintained their perfect record with a hard-fought win over Raiders at Chase Lodge.

Faithfold player-manager Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "First half was pretty even although I thought we comfortable. Second half we upped the tempo and created numerous chances and the game should have been put to bed but you have to take your chances.

"Raiders are a tough team as we found out last season and we were sloppy in our own passing which gave them chances. A good move created our goal from some good football to be finished of clinically by Daryl."

A POINT GAINED BY FC TEAM
FC TEAM A 2 LONDON MACCABI LIONS A 2
Jon Breger and Tom Miller got FC Team off to a solid start as they drew with the Lions at Meadow Park.

Two goals from summer signing Lorian Madanes, in his second spell with the club, earned Lions a point.

FC Team boss Mitch Young told JC Sport: "Having gone 1-2 down, we fought back I made the substitutions and we got a deserved equaliser. It was a fair result as both teams were evenly matched and we showed against one of the title favourites that we can match them all the way.

Lions joint-manager Josh Newman told JC Sport: "The game was played in tricky conditions for both sides and although we were not at our best, there were encouraging signs and certainly positives to build on for the rest of the season."

NEW BOYS SHINE IN DRAW
OAKWOOD A 1 BRADY MACCABI A 1
It was a story of the debutantes at Parmiters as Oakwood and Brady shared the points in a 1-1 draw, as predicted.

Summer signing Marc Lazare opened the scoring for Brady with a header following an excellent cross from Bradley Sharp and it appeared that Joel Nathan's men would hang on to take the points until Rafi Bloom popped up with a late leveller for the Oaks.

Brady boss Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "Overall I'm disappointed as we let Oakwood score with virtually last kick of the match when we let our concentration slip, however on reflection a draw was probably the correct result as I felt we controlled the game for most periods but didn't create enough while Oakwood missed some clear chances."
