Olim League season 2012/13 preview

September 19, 2012

The Olim League kicks off for its 4th season on Saturday night in what promises to be another exciting season.

England B have dropped out of the competition but have been replaced by a very similar looking FC Anglia.

The league was won by Jerusalem last season with Aviv taking the honours in the cup. England and Jaffa clinched the honours the previous season - a signal that nothing can be taken for granted in this increasingly competitive climate.
