A stunning last-minute penalty save from Redbridge keeper Richard Stern ensured the East Londoners made a winning start after a seven-goal thriller at South Oxhey.

Stern's full-length save rubber-stamped victory in a game the visitors led four times.

Having won their opening fixture against Red Sea the previous week, Montana went into the game in confident mood. That said, their hopes were not helped by the absence of Raymond Harrod, Simon Peterman, Adam Osper, Trevor Henen, Simon Wax, James Tarlton and Simon Hecker.

Hendon United A 3-0 Faithfold A

Faithfold’s Zuriel Solomon tore into his troops after a disastrous start to the season against a rampant Hendon team.

The player-manager blasted his wasteful strikers, as they were swept aside by last season’s League Cup winners.

Bemoaning his side’s lack of cutting edge, Solomon said: “It was disappointing up front. We couldn’t hit a barn door with the way we finished out there.”

MSFL week one review

By Danny Caro, September 8, 2009

There were goals galore on the opening weekend of the JC MSFL season.

Daniel Levenfiche, last season’s Player of the Year, scored four times at defending champions North West Neasden A hammered Glenthorne United A 5-0. Danny Cohen claimed the other.

Joint-manager Daniel Fox told JC Sport: “It’s good to start the season with a win, and that's exactly what we did. The team played well and we were confident that, even though it was goalless at half time, when we got the first the floodgates would open.”

Lions maintain winning ways

By Danny Caro, September 3, 2009

London Lions remain joint top of the Herts County Senior League Premier Division table with the systematic dismantling of Mill End Sports, winning 3-0 at Clarence Park.

Goals by Adam Stolerman, Ben Lampert and Ben Ellis saw off the spirited resistance of the visitors who had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping the scoreline respectable.

Lions came close on 12 minutes when Lee Cash drove in from the right only to see his shot fly wide of the near post. Mill End’s keeper then smothered the ball as Adam Stolerman tried to round him

By Danny Caro, September 3, 2009

Targeting a third consecutive Premier Division title, North West Neasden A start the campaign as favourites.

The addition of Maccabiah star James Gershfield and Mancunian Kyle Bentwood means they should not be hard-hit by the loss of Ricky Kennet and Lee Bibring, who have returned to London Maccabi Lions A after one season.
