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.”


Shulton joins Pinner

By Danny Caro, September 8, 2009

Team GB star Scott Shulton has joined the coaching team at Pinner JFC.

The Ebbsfleet United midfielder will be responsible for developing the club’s Under 16 and 18 squads.

As an energetic box-to-box midfielder, Shulton began his career at Watford before joining Wycombe Wanderers at the age of 12. He signed professional forms at Adams Park in 2008 and spent part of his learning curve on loan at Hendon during the 2007-08 season.

Who's hot, who's not and who's just plain up for it

By Danny Caro, September 3, 2009

The opening weekend of season 2009/10 of the JC MSFL features some mouth-watering contests. Match of the day comes in the Premier Division where JC Cyril Anekstein Cup holders Hendon United A entertain Faithfold A at Hadley FC.

The Hammers have been busy over the summer with new boss David Garbacz busy with his chequebook as the team looks set to repeat their League Cup final success over North West Neasden A to win the championship.


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


MSFL preview: Premier Division

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.

MSFL preview: Division One

By Danny Caro, September 3, 2009

Big spending Brady Maccabi and Montana Boca United A look like the teams to beat this season.

Under new manager Simon Hakim, Brady have bolstered their squad with a triple raid of Division One rivals North West Neasden B.

In has come Yoni Sidi, Adam Harvey, Mark Meltzer and Rob Lerner. There are also rumours that Team GB hotshot Paul Hakim, the manager’s son, will play a part in the campaign.

GB’s top-scorer at the Maccabiah, his presence could arguably be the difference between a top four finish and the title.


MSFL preview: Division Two

By Danny Caro, September 2, 2009

Chigwell Athletic begin the season boasting a clutch of players proven at Premier Division level. Whoever finishes above them is likely to be crowned champions.

Founded in 2001 by Richard Slater, Daniel Castle, Glenn Davis, Darren Morris, Russell Yershon and Steve Summers, the Chigs still hold the record of reaching the top-flight in only four seasons, winning three league titles along the way.

Keeper Neil Lawson is aiming for the most shutouts and with the rock-solid pairing of Jon Raven and Jon Swead in front of him, opposition strikeforces will have their work cut out.
