A penalty from Laurence Myers helped Brady Maccabi A move to within two points of top spot as they drew 1-1 against London Maccabi Lions A in Division One. Adam Brand netted for Lions.

South Manx went third in the table after claiming an impressive 6-2 victory over Glenthorne United A courtesy of strikes from Mark Powell (2), Eric Elbaz, Gavin Jacobs, Darren Coon, and a 40-yarder belter from Ollie Olsen. Stewart Block and Faraharz Bozorgzad-Moghim scored for Glenthorne.

A hat-trick from Faithfold's Mark Klinger consigned EDRS Stonegrove to their fifth defeat in seven games.

Dave Roberts (2), Mark Goldman and Neil Sapler helped Clayhall A edge a point clear in Division Two as they dispatched Ashlodge 4-0.

Brady Maccabi B continued their improvement with a 4-2 win against Temple Fortune. Long-range goals from Malcolm Hershman (2) and Pete Sugarman, plus an own goal, saw off the threat from Fortune for whom Steve Feiger and James Ryan's netted.

A late strike from Bruce Brent, his second of the game, preserved Norstar's unbeaten record in an eight-goal thriller against London Maccabi Lions B. The Lions roared into a 3-0 lead inside 19 minutes with Howard Freeman (2) and Marc Morris doing the damage. Simon Lawrence and David Jacobs joined Brent as Norstar's comeback gathered momentum. Stuart Coutts looked to have nicked it for the Lions before Brent's late intervention

Won 4-1.

This was a great team performance from the 14s picking up their first away win of the season and third on the spin.

Following a very well taken opener from Kaveer Patel in the first half, a hatrick from James Smyth sealed the victory.

Had it not been for some great saves from the Panathinaikos keeper, it could have been more.

And having scored three in the first half, the blues played more fluent attacking football in the second period albeit with only a single goal to show for it.

Under 12s - Home to Everett Rovers Green (WFL Yellow Division)

Lost 4-6
