It's not all about front men, says Rosenfeld

November 18, 2010

Josh Rosenfeld, the manager of Brady Maccabi, was keen to play down the contribution of strikers Josh Hershman and Mark Smith whose hat-tricks helped maintain their promotion charge in a six-goal demolition of fellow high-flyers Camden Park.

Hershman was at his dazzling best in front of the JC cameras for the second time this season. Officially a winger, he has now bagged 15 in all competitions, and his form has led to Rosenfeld recommending him to Rep Team manager Danny Berg ahead of this week's get-together.

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2010

After two league defeats in a row, Los Blancos bounced back in some style.

Joel Minsky's men enjoyed all the early possesion and were rewarded when Sami Birnbaum seized on a losse ball in the box to fire into the corner.

The lead was doubled when Danny Kon finished well follwing a fine Blancos move.

Raiders replied against the run of play, but further strikes from Birnbaum and Kon meant Minsky's men went in 4-1 up at the break.


Five-star Faithfold C march on

By Danny Caro, November 12, 2010

'We need to learn how to win' was the summation from stand-in boss David Tropp. He's not wrong. Perhaps it's not surprising when you consider the Real Life start to the season that despite going 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 up, we still contrived to lose the game by two clear goals.

JC Monthly Awards - October

By Danny Caro, November 5, 2010

They say that strikers get all the glory. Not this time. While it would have been easy to pick North London Raiders hotshot Jacob Gold for our Player of the Month, the award goes to midfield maestro Adam Joselyn.

Gold currently tops the Premier Division scoring charts and while it would have been easy to pick him, the efforts of Raiders club captain Joselyn cannot be overlooked.
