Goals from Lee Bibring, Daniel Levenfiche, Jake Gottlieb, Danny Daggers and TJ Keterman eased North West Neasden A into the fourth round of the Sunday Challenge Cup for the first time after they hammered Caribb Club FC 5-1.

A penalty in extra time from Daniel Kent saw Division One leaders South Manx A upset Premier Division London Maccabi Lions B in the second round of the JC Cyril Anekstein Cup. Jamie Kent had given the Manx a seventh minute lead only for Danny Reuben to level things up.

Manx boss Jon Nitka commented: “It was a great team performance.”

By Danny Caro, December 4, 2008

I can't believe what the world is coming to with pink shirts and boots becoming increasingly popular at all levels of the game. First, South Manx A wore the feminine-coloured tops. This was followed by the JC MSFL's answer to Arsenal striker Nicklaus Bendtner as East London Knights player-manager James Ryan and Glenthorne United B's Jason Silver recently invested in a pair of Nike Mercurial Vapor IVs.

The odds were stacked against Norstar from the start as the Lions fielded almost their whole Saturday side which tops the Hertfordshire Senior County Premier Division.

The class divide was evident in the opening exchanges as the Lions stroked the ball around the greasy Rowley Lane surface.

A stoppage time effort from player-manager Jon Davody earned Marylebone maximum points against a resilient Hawks team.

The Frenchmen almost scored on a few clear chances. Davody controlled the ball inside the box on a corner kick and his deflected shot hit the crossbar.

JC MSFL Division 2:
Southgate Harmen B 3 Rapid Banta 2

On a grey day in North London, the B's of Southgate recorded their second straight 3-1 victory.

Goals from the two Simons were enough to see the day ended in delight for Southgate, as they only gave up a goal after a penalty.

Elliot 'Vern' Gordon gave the team a great deal of cover, sweeping up behind the back four of Engel, Dreifuss, Taylor and Sasto, who all defended very effectively throughout the morning.
