Israel lie second in Euro 2012 qualifying Group F following a goalless draw against Georgia in Tblisi on Tuesday night.

September 7, 2010

JC MSFL Oakwood manager Alex Schock described his side as the "best passing team in the division" as they secured an impressive opening day win over Division One new boys Chigwell Athletic.

Not even Josh Silverberg's double could prevent Maccabi from making it six points from six as Haroldeans crashed to defeat in their first game of the season.

Elsewhere, South Manchester Sports Club 2nd made it two wins out of two with the 7-0 thrashing of Westdene 2nds.

Blasted out in the first round when he challenged for Khan's WBA light-welterweight title in Newcastle last December, Salita took the decision 78-74 on the cards of all three judges.
