DANNY CARO'S GOAL OF THE WEEK

WINNER: - Kane Gilbery (Temple Fortune A) - scored the best goal his manager, Lee Fegan, has ever seen. The boy took the ball from a short throw off his keeper at the edge of his own area and ran down the wing, twisting and turning, losing his opponents, and still had the energy to put in a powerful shot striking the ball into the back of the net. Even Messi, Ronaldo or even Troy Denney, would have been impressed!

-----------------------------

JC BLOOPER OF THE WEEK
Elliot Castle (Redbridge B) - defensive header right in front of Norstar goal, where he attempted to dive in, got it all wrong and the ball spun out for a throw on

-----------------------------

JC QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Nick Kagan (Camden Park) - "Everyone put in a good individual and collective performance in front of David Wolff - Jewish football royalty - we wanted to make an impression and I think we did that today"

LONDON FA SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP

ZURAWEL MAKES RAILWAY MEN PAY THE PENALTY
RAILWAY ARMS FC 1 OAKWOOD A 1 AET (Oakwood won 3-2 on penalties)
Darren Zurawel was the hero for Oakwood A who held their nerve to beat Railway Arms FC after a penalty shoot-out in the London FA Sunday Junior Cup.

The keeper produced three stunning saves in the shoot-out, after a free-kick from Toby Levy took the tie to extra time.

Paul Bentley, Levy and Daniel Abrams held their nerve from 12 yards to take Oakwood through.

Oaks joint-manager Alex Schock told JC Sport: "The game should have been out of sight by half time, but we weren't clinical enough in front of goal. We're through and that's the main thing."

BIG BEN STRIKES TWO IN HENDON WIN
HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A 4 NORSTAR A 2
Ben Kon bagged a brace as Hendon returned to winning ways with a 4-2 win over Norstar at Hadley FC.

Further strikes from Avidan Last and Dany Kon clinched the points.

Norstar's goals came through summer signing Ben Sheldon and Jeremy Elster.

Delighted Hendon boss David Garbacz told JC Sport: "We were excellent in the first half and took control of the game from very early on."

Norstar manager Phil Peters told JC Sport: "Hendon are a fabulous football team and although we put everything into yesterday's game it wasn't enough. Their classy attacking play cut us open three times in the first half and they scored three goals. You have to take your chances in this division and whilst they certainly did that, we didn't.

THREE CHEERS FOR RAIDERS
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 3 FC TEAM A 0
There was relief for Raiders at Brunel as Rob Richman's men claimed their first win with Adam Joselyn, Mike Hershman and an own goal taking them past FC Team.

Raiders boss Rob Richman told JC Sport: "Today was much more like it from our point of view. We were well aware that FC Team would be a real battle, but having never lost to them at home we were very keen on keeping that run going for the fourth consecutive year.

"We defended much better today and were very clinical when chances presented themselves.

"I'm mighty pleased today as the boys deserved this win for the effort they put in."

Disappointed FC Team manager Mitch Young told JC Sport: "It was a very disapointing result, however I don't believe the scoreline gives a true reflection on the game.

"I was fairly please with our performance and we missed some gilt-edged chances at crucial moments. We know you get punished at this level if you don't take them.

"It was a tight game between two well-organised and committed sides with not much seperating the sides. I look at this as one of those games where Raiders got the edge and a bit of luck, but we move on.

"We want to bounce back and get another win quickly and we will be looking to do that against Hendon next week."

Brixton's goals came through Michael Posner and Rob Blackman.

Redbridge manager Eilon Kennet told JC Sport: "It's always good to get a win over an in-form team, especially if is also confounds your prediction!

"Altogether another very solid performance, with both teams looking for goals and a victory."

Brixton boss John Nitka told JC Sport: "We were beaten by the better team - let's just say we had an off day!"

PHILLIPS STARS AS FAITHFOLD HIT MAGNIFICENT FIVE
FAITHFOLD A 5 LONDON MACCABI LIONS A 2
A hat-trick from stalwart striker DARYL PHILLIPS steered Faithfold towards a glorious win over the Lions at Chase Lodge.

Alex Kaye and Rocky Spitzer were the other marksmen on a memorable morning for the Superhoops.

Faithfold old boy Mike Pearson and captain Yoav Lebens replied for Lions.

Jubilant Faithfold boss Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "We showed a lot of character today after last week's result. This week we were clinical, were strong physically and played some good football."

LML joint-player-manager Josh Newman told JC Sport: "Faithfold were excellent and showed what a good side they are. Zuriel has really got them playing well."

FOUR-MIDABLE CAMDEN MARCH ON
CAMDEN PARK 4 FAITHFOLD B 1
Two goals from David Kanzen boosted Camden Park's promotion hopes as they dished out a 4-1 demolition to Faithfold B at Ark Academy.

Victory was cemented with further strikes from Rob Hershkorn and Richard Silver.

Faithfold's Jonny Horwitz fired a consolation.

Camden's Nick Kagan told JC Sport: "It was a solid win for us today. Faithfold battled and it took some slick passing to see them off.

"Everyone put in a good individual and collective performance in front of David Wolff - Jewish football royalty - we wanted to make an impression and I think we did that today."

Faithfold assistant-manager Ben Lewis told JC Sport: "We were a bit unlucky against a good team."

Glenthorne A made easy work of UJIA, with Daneil Lassman, Daniel Lipman and Jamie Shaw doing the damage.

Victorious manager Sam Rosenthal told JC Sport: "It was a good win. We turned it on in the second half and it probably should've been more in the end.

"We look forward to Camden next week."

UJIA player-manager Darren Rolfe announced he is stepping down after the match.

He told reporters: "Had it not been from their keeper we would have gone in 2-0 up at half time. At 0-0 we were well in the game but we didn't create in the second half and got punished when we couldn't do the simple thing and clear the ball."

Ben Radstone has taken over as boss.

TWELVE GOALS BUT NO WINNER
HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB B 6 CHIGWELL ATHLETIC 6
Game of the day saw Hendon B share the points following an incredible 12-goal thriller against Chigwell in west Hendon, with an injury time effort from Neil Tilley earning the visitors a point.

Hendon's goals came through RA Noe (2), Chaim Gothold (2), Gav Noe and Yishai Last.

Chigwell's scorers were Neil Tilley (2), Jamie Fox, Paul Lenchner and Craig Pearl.

Chigs player-manager Richard Slater told JC Sport: "In 16 years of being involved in men's footbal, I''ve never seen a game like that. From our point of view to score six away from home and not leave with all three points is a joke.

Hendon joint-player-manager Motty Korman told JC Sport: "We will be working on defending in training!"

Chigwell: Rob Shepherdson, Russell Yershon, Lee Hyams (sub: Jamie Fox 45), Paul Lenchner, Richard Slater, Jonathan Swead, Russell Brill, Craig Pearl (sub: Pierce Prince 45), Anthony Mendel, Brad Gayer, Neil Tilley

FOUR-MIDABLE FORTUNE HIT THE JACKPOT
TEMPLE FORTUNE A 4 SHIRLEY PARK 2
Lee Fegan's Temple Fortune produced one of the performances of the day, with strikes from Stuart Haring, Kane Gilbery, Shai Davidi and Craig Cole earning the points against the much-fancied Shirley Park at the Hive.

Shirley Park, for whom Stefan Benfredj bagged a brace, played the majority of the match with 10 men after player-manager Dave Lusman saw red for violent conduct following a confrontation on 40 minutes.

Fortune boss Lee Fegan told JC Sport: "It was a great result but if I'm honest, we didn’t even play the sort of football we are capable of playing but the effort was spot on."

Shirley Park boss Dave Lusman told JC Sport: "We were shocking in parts yet will still should've had this game wrapped up by the end of the first half. To be fair, Fortune were up for it and did what they needed to do as our 10 men struggled with hangovers from the night before."

WANDERERS MAKE THEIR POINT
WOODFORD WANDERERS 3 NORTH WEST NEASDEN A 3
Woodford and Neasden A shared the points following a six-goal thriller in east London.

The Wanderers stormed into a 3-0 lead after 30 minutes, with a stunning effort from Mitch Hahn the pick of the bunch. Woodford's other goals came through Harrison Midda from the penalty spot and Alex Aviram.

NWN were missing Lee Cash and Scott Schindler but Joey Glynne pulled one back with a long-range special and they were gifted a second goal through an own goal. Then Jonny Blain was fouled by the keeper outside the box, according to the striker, but ref awarded a penalty which was converted by Zak White.

Injured Woodford player Jerome Marks watched the game from the sidelines and had this to say: "From being in such a comfortable position, we all feel absolutely gutted to have drawn this game.

"We played some great football and could have quite easily extended our lead after half time.

"Credit to Neasden for getting back into the game, although we shouldn't have allowed it to happen. Our cause wasn't helped when the ref awarded Neasden a penalty for a foul that was at least two yards outside the penalty area. We know what a tough job being a referee is, but this was the worst decision I have seen for a long time. We'll look to bounce back next week against Chigwell, in what should be an absolute cracker."

NWN's Jonny Blain told JC Sport: "It was a good game to play in. The draw just about fair but Woodford will feel very aggrieved about the penalty decision."

New signing Richard Angel enjoyed a dream debut with both goals in Bilbaum's 2-1 win over Raiders B.

Ben Hart pulled one back for Raiders.

Baums player-manager Mark Pasha told JC Sport: "When the BaumBaum follows the trawler, it's because he thinks peanuts will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."

Raiders boss Oli Shorts told JC Sport: "It was frustrating. I thought we deserved more from the game. This is the third game we've lost by a single goal.

"It'll come but at the moment we're finding ourselves in a relegation battle. Saying that I'm sure it'll click."

CATS CRUSHED BY NEASDEN B
CATFORD & BROMLEY MACCABI 2 NORTH WEST NEASDEN B 5
Neasden B romped to victory against the Cats with OLI JOSEPH helping himself to four fabulous goals.

Sam Foster completed the rout as NWN hit the jackpot as NWN made it five wins out of seven to maintain their lead at the top.

Catford's goals came through Dan Zegze and Jonny Lee.

NWN player-manager Adam Levene told JC Sport: "We played well in patches and overall deserved the win. I'm really pleased with our start to the season."

Catford captain Adam Luria told JC Sport: "The scoreline is very flattering as we pushed Neasden for most of the game and were unlucky not to go in ahead at half time.

"After the break we pushed some more but let in some sloppy goals and didn't defend we'll enough when Neasden broke on the counter."

FANTASTIC FC TEAM STUN SPEC
FC TEAM B 2 SPEC FC 0
FC Team B produced a stunning display to halt promotion chasing SPEC FC.

Adam Goldsmith and Freddie Marks hit the net for Ben Simon's men.

FC Team boss Ben Simon told JC Sport: "We controlled the closing stages and perhaps should have added to our two goals if it weren't for some selfish play from several of our attackers and a goal disallowed for offside by a very excitable linesman!

"It was a very pleasing result and now makes it two wins out of two in the league for us against two of the supposedly better teams in the division."

SPEC FC spokesman Ricky Lawrence told JC Sport: "It was a very disappointing result today. FC Team B are a very good side but whilst there is no point going on about the penalty, it was a game-changing decision and I don't think there was a player on the pitch who thought it was a foul.

"We must react better in future though and we'll have to put in a better performance next week."

Blancos player-manager ADAM HERSH led by example as Los Blancos produced a stunning performance against arch rivals Blizzard Storm.

Joel Kutner and Josh Gaon put the icing on the cake.

Blizzard's goals came through Zak Presky and Michael Gaventa.

Delighted Blancos boss Adam Hersh told JC Sport: "After last week, we needed a good response and we gave that today and were more than worthy winners."

Blizzard boss Simon Linden told JC Sport: "Los Blancos were the better side. I'm disappointed with my team. Our performance was not good enough."

NORSTAR B 3 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE B 6
DAN 'FLASH' GORDON stole the show with a hat-trick as Redbridge B hit Norstar B for six.

Jimmy Castle, Scott Oldstein and Ben Binder joined the party as Jon Jacobs' men recorded their first win of the campaign.

Norstar's goals came through Jeff Gotch (2) and Jamie Freed.

RJC boss Jon Jacobs told JC Sport: "The first league win for Redbridge was comprehensive. We were 5-0 up, took our foot off the gas and let them back in but they simply couldn't handle the pace and skill of my team today.

"It's a very proud day, we are still unbeaten in the league and can now think of looking upwards.

"So much for one Jewish sports news reporter (who shall remain nameless) who put this down as a potential relegation six-pointer #motivation"

Norstar boss David Lubczanski told JC Sport: "It was massively disappointing. For periods of the game the team lost complete concentration, conceding weak goals, but we showed fight at 5-0 down.

"We need to perform for 90 minutes consistently if we are ever to pick up a result."

Fortune's goal came through John Kemp.

Jubilant Mill Hill boss Joe Levy told JC Sport: "This was a game which I felt we dominated from start to finish. We stepped up a gear from last week and although our first goal didn't come until the second half, we kept our composure and made it count when it mattered."

Fortune player-manager Terry Jeffries said: "The ref missed a blatant punch by their goalkeeper on me which should have been a red card. I wasn't happy with a lot of his decisions but fair play to Mill Hill who shaded it."

L'Equipe gaffer David Prager told JC Sport: "Sunday's game was a rollercoaster. I am absolutely delighted at the heart and character it took to come back from 4-0 down, but furious that we found ourselves in that position in the first place.

"The second half performance was spectacular and in the end we really should have won the game but a couple of goals."

SUPERHOOPS TWO GOOD FOR ORIENT
LOUGHTON ORIENT 0 FAITHFOLD C 2
Star striker Ben Simons and Dave Sherman were the marksmen as Faithfold C completed a good morning's work in Essex.

Faithfold player-manager David Garson told JC Sport: "The first half was a bit boring in truth, with very few chances for either team.

"I was delighted to keep a clean sheet especially as we played the last 15 with 10 men as Josh Daniels had to go off injured.

"Second half I thought we were pretty much in control throughout and had it not been for hitting the post and a goaline clearance post a clear penalty, I think we could have rolled in quite a few more goals."

Loughton boss Dan Curtis told JC Sport: "We never really got going in the second half and although it was a fairly even match in terms of possession and chances, Faithfold managed to take a couple of theirs and take the three points.

After the match, Curtis confirmed the signing of David Blitz.

FC TEAM C WIN SEVEN-GOAL THRILLER
OAKWOOD B 3 FC TEAM C 4
A late winner from Rob Sanford helped FC Team C boost their title hopes with a thrilling comeback in the top of the table clash against Oakwood B at Parmiters.

Oakwood started well and took a two-goal lead through Ben Polak and Rafi Bloom.

FC Team deservedly got back into the game through David Joseph Cohen but the Oaks restored the two-goal lead through Ben Myers with a free kick.

The second half was a different story and despite a bright start, Oakwood soon lost their shape and the lead and FC Team took the points late on with Cohen and Oliver Senchal also on target.

Oakwood boss Ian Tussie told JC Sport: "FC Team played well and had their tales up in the second half but our lack of discipline and composure cost us in the end."

FOUR-MIDABLE TOTTENHAM MARCH ON
TOTTENHAM CHUTSPAH 4 NORSTAR C 1
There was more glory for Tottenham Chutspah as Ariel Tamman's men did the business against Norstar C.

There were three more goals for top-scorer JONO GAON and one for Daniel Fattal.

David Domb grabbed a consolation for Norstar, but what a strike it was.

TCFC boss Ariel Tamman told JC Sport: "We managed to score two in the second half by knocking it forward with the long balls up to our attack. At this moment we were not completely dominating though.

"After half time two subs were made and our midfield gained strength. At this point we started to dominate the game, with them being given the rare opportunity for a sight of the goal.

Jono Gaon scored a cracker as did the Norstar lad who scored a cracker near the end of the game. We did have one injury during the match when Adam Ben Harosh had a bad impact whilst landing from a jump and we had to carry him off the pitch. After Adam going to hospital it is clear that he tore his meniscus and there is excessive damage to his ligament. He will be out for a couple of weeks at least. Both teams showed respect and wish him a very quick recovery."

Norstar boss Zack Gothelf told JC Sport: "We were much better organised today, and it was individual mistakes, matched by excellent finishing from Jono Gaon that saw us lose again today, rather than collective problems that have cost us in recent games."
