LONDON FA SUNDAY INTERMEDIATE CUP ROUND TWO

DEPLETED TEAM WELL BEATEN
FC TEAM A 1 ANOTHOSIS FC 4
FC Team A tumbled out of the LFASIC following a 4-1 defeat against Cypriot team Anothosis FC.

Striker Declan Selbo had put Team ahead.

FC Team manager Mitch Young told JC Sport: "With six players missing for various reasons, we knew it was going to be a struggle, but things were made even worse after five minutes when Dan Silverman got injured so I had to play 85 minutes at right midfield!

"Saying that, we took the lead and managed to hang on until the last 10 minutes. We failed to take our chances to go 2-0 up and then they scored the equaliser and with five minutes to go a cross come shot. We then went all out attack and conceded two on the counter.

"It is a shame but we will have all our players back for the league next weekend!"

DC Prediction: FC Team A 2 Anothosis FC 1

PETER MORRISON TROPHY ROUND TWO

SILVER SHINES AGAIN FOR CAMDEN
SOUTHGATE HARMEN 1 CAMDEN PARK 4
Richard Silver continued his purple patch in front of goal with a brace in the 4-1 victory over Division One rivals Harmen at Ashmole School.

Silver converted a penalty and scored another, with Rob Hershkorn and Josh Toff also on the mark.

Sam Castle registered for Harmen.

Camden's Nick Kagan told JC Sport: "It was a solid performance. We controlled the game from the first minute to the last. Everyone played well, we took Harmen's sometimes over-physical approach in our stride although we never really needed to hit top gear."

Harmen boss Dan Uzan told JC Sport: "Camden deserved the win. They played really well with a lot of energy and determination. Despite the scoreline, we actually played OK, but too many individual mistakes cost us.

PETER MORRISON TROPHY ROUND ONE

WOODFORD COME BACK TO BEAT TEAM
FC TEAM C 1 WOODFORD WANDERERS 2
First division Woodford avoided a shock in a hard-fought win over Division Three high-flyers FC Team C.

A virtuoso performance from super-sub Joe Summary and a late strike from James Ryan helped them come from behind after FC Team hotshot David James Cohen had put FC Team in front.

Woodford manager Paul Hyams told JC Sport: "It was a great cup game and a deserved win for the Wanderers. Hopefully a little run could lead to something special for us this season and I want to take this form in to the league."

FC Team joint-player-manager Michael Myers told JC Sport: "It was a back-to-the-walls job today. Team were unlucky to lose in that manner but Woodford deserved the win, the better team on the day.

DC Prediction: FC Team C 2 Woodford 1

RELIEF FOR FAITHFOLD B
FAITHFOLD B 5 NORSTAR B 1
There was some cheer at last for Faithfold B as Sam Lewis (2), Richard Winton, Stefan Simons and Ben Moss took them past Norstar B.

Faithfold assistant-manager Ben Lewis told JC Sport: "A few weeks off have helped to get some players back and also move on, with some players not ready to commit leaving the club and we wish them all the best.

"What we are left with is a core of committed and technically very good players and it looks like we will benefit from working closer with the other teams in the club.

"Young starlet Sam Lewis scoring twice from the first team squad so we can't wait for the next game although the division is extremely challenging for us for reasons we have spoken about before we are looking forward to it!"

DC Prediction: Faithfold B 3 Norstar B 1

OAKS EDGE SEVEN-GOAL THRILLER
BRADY MACCABI A 3 OAKWOOD A 4
Oakwood A maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a thrilling 4-3 victory over Brady in the all-Premier Division clash at Rowley Lane.

MATCH PHOTOGALLERY

Brad Wine, Dan Ash, Raphi Bloom and Carl Peters were the marksmen for the Oaks.

Brady's goals came through Jon Ellis, Ben Joseph and Josh Hershman.

Oaks joint-manager Ric Blank told JC Sport: "It sounds closer than it was as we were 4-2 up and they scored consolation right at the death. It was tough game without too much rhythm."

Oakwood co-manager Alex Schock told JC Sport: "We think it's now been a year since we have been beaten in 90 minutes - just the defeat in extra time to Hendon in the PM final last year. This is a massive achievement for our club."

Brady boss Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "We're very disappointed to lose a game we should have won, but we paid for not taking our chances. It also doesn't help when we are missing six keys players as our squad is stretched to the limit and meant we only had 11 players available today."

TEN-MAN HORNETS FLY INTO NEXT ROUND
FAITHFOLD C 2 HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB B 5
Hendon B returned to winning ways with Yishai Last (2), Alex Neiss (2) and Chaim Gothold on target in the 5-2 success over third division Faithfold C.

Gothold blotted his copybook with a red card.

Faithfold's goals came through Dave Sherman and Josh Barnett.

Hendon joint-manager Motty Korman told JC Sport: "We were 3-0 up inside 25 minutes, but played rest of game with 10 men after having a man sent off. We're always in control of the game on a muddy Copthall pitch.

Faithfold player-manager David Garson told JC Sport: "It was pudding of a pitch at Copthall - the mud was the winner and we all came off grateful we don’t have to wash the kit. Good luck to Hendon in the next round."

SUPER SINAI TAKES CATS THROUGH
CATFORD & BROMLEY MACCABI 1 NORSTAR C 0
Jamie Sinai was the matchwinner for Catford & Bromley as they booked their place in the hat for the next round with a hard-fought win over Division Three strugglers Norstar C.

Catford & Bromley captain Adam Luria told JC Sport: "We had to really fight to get a result from this game as Norstar pushed us all the way. With a scratch team and no subs due to a host of absences of key players, we made hard work of the game. We could have had any complaints had they taken us to extra-time or further. We wish them luck for the rest of the season as they certainly should pick up more wins in their division."

David Domb, who took charge for Norstar in the absence of Zack Gothelf, told JC Sport: "I thought we deserved to at least take them to extra time.

"We can take a lot from our performance today, and hopefully we can take the positives into our next league game."

MAGIC MAN MENDEL TAKES CHIGS THROUGH
OAKWOOD B 2 CHIGWELL ATHLETIC 6
An ANTHONY MENDEL treble eased Chigwell Athletic into round three at the expense of Division Three leaders Oakwood B.

Brad Gayer, Craig Pearl, with a trademark free-kick, and an own goal completed the scoring.

Adam Blin and Ben Polak netted for Oakwood.

Chigs boss Richard Slater told JC Sport: "I wanted a reaction from my players and got exactly that today."

Oaks manager Ian Tussie told JC Sport: "The scoreline doesn't do us justice. They levelled soon after although there was a hint of a handball and offside in the goal. Chiggers took the lead before half time as Champagne Charlie Cohen was more Cava as he headed into his own net, although that shouldn't detract from what was an excellent performance from him today."

FORTUNE MADE TO SWEAT
TEMPLE FORTUNE A 2 LOUGHTON ORIENT 1
Temple Fortune A squeezed past third division Loughton Orient in Pinner thanks to goals from Shai Davidi and Michael Goldberg.

Orient new boy David Blitz had equalised.

Relieved Fortune manager Lee Fegan told JC Sport: "We didn't play well on a nightmare of a pitch. We lost our heads position-wise and didn't do ourselves any favours, but we dug in deep and a single-goal win in the cup is the same as a 10-0 win – we're through and that's all that matters. Well played Loughton though – they made us fight for this victory."

Orient player manager Dan Curtis told JC Sport: "I'm proud of every one of my players. They showed commitment, spirit and I believe we will go far with this team.

BROTHERS HELP BLIZZARD BLOW TOTTENHAM AWAY
BLIZZARD STORM 8 TOTTENHAM CHUTSPAH 1
Brothers OLI SIMONS and DAN SIMONS scored a hat-trick apiece as the Blizzard boys battered third division Tottenham Chutspah.

Zak Presky and Brett Freeman completed the rout.

Blizzard boss Simon Linden told JC Sport: "It's nice to get into the last 16 of the cup. We know that we can beat anyone on our day so who knows how far we can go...

"Today was a good performance, although the two Simons brothers scored 6. I have to turn to Stuart Muller for man of the match. He organised and lead the team very well from the back.

Lions old boy Ben Graham sealed an impressive away win for the east Londoners.

Ollie Craig grabbed a consolation for the Lions.

RJC boss Eilon Kennet told JC Sport: "I'm very pleased with it overall. I always enjoy my return visits to Lions - lots of friendly faces and always a good game of football.

The 'new' Lions will only get better and better, but for now we are a little more experienced and 'professional'."

Lions interim manager Andy Landesberg told JC Sport: "It was back to the real world for Lions. Whilst we had a good percentage of the play today, it was three critical mistakes that cost us today.

CHAMPIONS IN SEVENTH HEAVEN
NORSTAR A 0 HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A 7
A hat-trick from midfield maestro GREG CORIN helped the defending champions finish in seventh heaven in front of the Sky Sports cameras in Harrow.

There were also goals for Ben Kon, Ari Last and two from Danny Kon as David Garbacz's men filled their boots at John Lyon School.

Hendon manager David Garbacz told JC Sport: "Like British rail we are getting there – this was not the ultimate perfect performance despite the score-line as there were times when our defence still looked a little shaky and we needed Russell [Corin] to be on top form to ensure a clean sheet – but the result was never in doubt and going forward that is the best we have played for quite a few weeks.

"We hope we were able to give the watching Sky Sports cameras some decent footage. It is just the confidence fillip we need going into massive games against Faithfold and Oakwood and I wouldn’t be writing the Hendon championship obituary quite yet.

"We know there will be tougher games to come, but Norstar still put up a pretty good fight without much luck.

HAIK THE HERO FOR SUPERHOOPS
NORTH LONDON RAIDERS A 1 FAITHFOLD A 7
A four-goal master-class from JONNY HAIK ensured Faithfold maintained their lead at the top as they produced a simply stunning performance against Raiders at Brunel.

Striker Daryl Phillips bagged a brace and there was also one for Rocky Spitzer in a one-sided contest.

Midfielder Jonny Hesselberg snatched a consolation for the Raiders.

Faithfold manager Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "We were brilliant today start to finish. Raiders were unfortunate today to play us when we were in this mood. We showed full commitment and passion along with some great football our finishing today. But the season is long so we will keep our feet on the ground."

Raiders boss Rob Richman told JC Sport: "Congratulations to Faithfold on a very good win - their finishing was very impressive and it will take a good side to stop them winning honours this season."

LIONS CUTTER SHIRLEY UP
SHIRLEY PARK 1 LONDON MACCABI LIONS B 3
Shirley Park's promotion hopes were dealt a blow as they were beaten by rivals Lions B at Norseman FC.

Last week's scorers did the business again for Jamie Kyte's men, with top-scorer James Gold (2) and Jonny Cutter seeing them home.

Striker Saul Conway registered for Shirley.

Delighted Lions boss Jamie Kyte told JC Sport: "It was another great performance from all the boys. We needed a team performance and that's what we got. We kept Kent quiet and exposed them in the first 15 to take an early two-goal lead. Once again we were unlucky not to get a few more, Dan Green hit the post and Henry Ziff hit the crossbar.

"We now look forward to our next game against Camden. Rumours are they've signed a new keeper and I'm looking forward to our two hotshots Cutter and Gold testing him."

Shirley Park boss Dave Lusman told JC Sport: "It was a bad day at the races for Park. Confusion at the beginning of the game lead to us playing on a junior pitch at Norseman which was tiny. It didn't help either teams as no player had more then a second on the ball. It really didn't suit us - there was no space to exploit or play.

"Credit to Lions as the win was deserved; we had are chances but their keeper was excellent and defensive pairing at the back kept Jamie Kent and Saul at bay.

"Our title push has come to an end as it's far to late for us with to many points dropped."

Blancos player-manager Adam Hersh told JC Sport: "SPEC were the team that turned up on the day. It was a very lacklustre performance from LB, not helped by a much slower 3G pitch than we are used to playing.

MELTZER INSPIRED US, SAYS BRADY'S CAPTAIN MARVEL
BRADY MACCABI B 2 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS B 1
Dan Hildebrand and captain James Joseph were the goal men as Brady beat Raiders for the second week running to boost their promotion hopes. But they did it the hard way, coming from a goal down with new signing Josh Newman impressing on debut at Rowley Lane.

Brady match-winner James Joseph told JC Sport: "A couple of times this year we've shot ourselves in the foot with sloppiness and given ourselves an uphill task. That was the case today and with the way we played in the first half, we needed to change something. Fair play to our very own tactical mastermind, Johnny Meltzer, because I think the change gave us the kick up the backside we needed."
