Peer said: "Would it make them happy if I stopped representing Israel? Where would the country be then? We lost to Poland who were a very tough team."

Six-hit Redbridge keep treble hopes alive

By Danny Caro, February 10, 2011

Sam McCarthy, manager of Redbridge Jewish Care A, cut a relieved figure after watching his team keep alive treble hopes with a hard fought victory against Division One high-flyers Brady Maccabi in the quarter-finals of the JC Cyril Anekstein Cup.

They ran out 6-1 winners but the tie was far from comfortable for RJC who finished the game with 10 men after right-back Craig Sandford was sent off. It needed some late intervention from hat-trick hero Dean Nyman, Steve Summers and Daran Bern to send the Premier Division leaders through.

We're coming to park the bus

By James Masters, February 10, 2011

Stuart Delmonte says that his Manchester Maccabi 1st side will try to pull out all the stops to avoid a mauling against London Maccabi Lions in Sunday's Peter Morrison Trophy tussle.

The Tameside League side will travel down to Rowley Lane for a 2pm kick-off without four first-team stars and fears over being overrun by a Lions side desperate for cup glory.

And London-born Delmonte concedes his side face an uphill task if they are to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Israel beaten by Serbia in friendly

By Danny Caro, February 10, 2011

Israel were beaten 2-0 by Serbia in a friendly played in front of a paltry crowd of just 7,783 at the Bloomfield Stadium on Wednesday night.

Luis Fernandes, the Israel manager, used the match to try out an experimental five-man midfield ahead of next month’s Euro 2012 qualifiers.

A strong Serbia team, who included Jewventus playmaker Milos Krasic and Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, forged ahead midway through the first half.

Good work from Ivanovic saw him power down the right flank before sending in a precision cross that was converted by the onrushing Zoran Tošić.

Real Life good value for a point

By Danny Caro, February 7, 2011

Heath Banta saw their Division Three promotion aspirations frustrated in a thrilling encounter that finished 2-2 against relegation-threatened Real Life.

Real Life will be happier with the point than Heath given the 7-2 defeat by the same side in their last game two weeks previous. But there will also be that familiar feeling of disappointment that having been 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go, they could not hold on for that still elusive first league win of the season.
