FC Marylebone 2 Hendon Hawks 1

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.

Holy Mount Zion 0 North London Raiders B 5

Eagle-eyed Bloom keeps Neasden on course

November 19, 2008

JC MSFL Division Two:
FC Heath 1 North West Neasden C 4

North West Neasden C kept up their promotion push with their second win over FC Heath in three weeks as a Stephen Bloom hat-trick led them to a comfortable 4-1 win.

On a slightly boggy South Oxhey pitch, Neasden started the brighter and their first chance was not long in coming as a flowing move down the left saw Michael Hershman cross for Bloom who laid the ball off to the advancing Mark Simons who was unlucky to see his first-time shot cannon back off the crossbar.

November 19, 2008

Ryman League Division One North:
Tilbury 0 Wingate & Finchley 3

Wingate & Finchley gave themselves some breathing room ahead of the playoff chasing pack with a convincing away victory at Tilbury.

The first half was an even and open contest, and Wingate went in a goal ahead at the break mainly thanks to the heroics of goalkeepr Gavin King. The second half saw a difference in class as the visitors comfortably killed the game off.


Bs sting the As in FC Team derby

By Ben Simon, November 11, 2008

FC Team B caused one of the shocks of the day as they ended their A team's 100 perfect record in a five-goal thriller.

The B team came into this game on a three-game winning streak but that was nothing compared to the A teams highly impressive 100 per cent start in their first eight league games of the season.

However, the As will be the first to admit that the closest they had come to losing in those eight games was the first meeting with the B team where they held on to their one goal lead under immense pressure for the final 30 minutes.


Lions show style

November 11, 2008

London Lions 4 Standon & Puckeridge 2

London Lions turned on the style once again as they beat 4th placed Standon & Puckeridge 4-2 at Rowley Lane.

When the Lions are good they are very good and if they can just fine tune their possession and passing of the ball to a far more consistent level then they could be exceptional.

The first 25 minutes was a little disjointed as both teams looked to get a foot hold on the game. It was the visitors that drew first blood with an Adam Myeroff own goal giving them the lead.


Knights are top

November 11, 2008

JC MSFL Div 4: Pinner JFC 1 East London Knights 3

A brace from player-manager James Ryan and Justin Bell helped the Knights go clear at the top of the table.

The latest instalment of the Knights debut season took them to the Roger Bannister Playing Fields to take on struggling Pinner JFC.
