Perfect 10 for rampant Lions

September 15, 2008
London Lions crushed a stunned Bovingdon side as they produced an outstanding footballing performance.


Scoring a perfect 10 in all departments, the football on show wouldn't have looked out of place in the Barclays Championship with reward for all the players' hard work so far this season beginning to bear fruits.


Two out of two for the Knights

September 15, 2008
JC MSFL Div 4: East London Knights 6 Pinner JFC 2


Another terrific display by the Knights crowned off a thumping victory at Wanstead Flats this morning.

Although things didn't start to brightly for the Knights after two minutes into Simon Marks's debut it was cut short by a hamstring strain when he over-stretched for a ball played in the air forcing the home side into a change.


Super Simons boosts Neasden C

JC MSFL Div 2 Holy Mount Zion 0 NW Neasden C 1

Back at the spiritual home of HMZ and under the shadow of the Wembley arch on a blistering day for football, both these teams slogged out 90 minutes of a hard fought game played in a very good spirit.

These teams both took three points off one another last season so this one was always going to be difficult to call. Especially with Neasden missing five key players including hot shot striker Stevie Bloom.

London Maccabi Lions A  2-3  Glenthorne United A


A magnificent display from Glenthorne's Lewis Walker was the difference between these two sides in a fantastic game at Rowley Lane to start the new Maccabi League campaign.

Walker scored twice and set up the third after a magnificent solo run for teammate Daniel Lassman to score late on to send the visitors home with maximum points.

Defending champions North West Neasden A were given a scare before coming through 4-3 against Bafana Bafana. Daniel Stanton (2), Jake Gottlieb and Daniel Levenfiche saw Jamie Cole's men home. Aaron Lawee, Jonny Kaye and Dave Ossack netted for Bafana.


Thornes stun Lions

September 12, 2008

Two goals from Lewis Walker helped Premier Division new boys Glenthorne United A shock JC Cyril Anekstein Cup holders London Maccabi Lions A 3-2 in the opening week of the programme.

MSFL ref Mark dies

By Danny Caro, September 12, 2008

Tributes have been coming in for Maccabi League referee Michael "Mickey" Mark, who passed away last week.

A lower league official, Mark, 71, was scheduled to officiate at a friendly last weekend but died three days earlier after collapsing on his way to Regent's Park.

He was involved with the league for more than 40 years after initially joining Brixton. He refereed for more than seven years.


JC MSFL week one preview

By Danny Caro, September 5, 2008

Season 2008/09 of the JC MSFL gets under way with some mouth-watering clashes on the cards. Our experts look ahead to all the action across five divisions.  


Champions Neasden could not have asked for an easier opener. Having strengthened what was already an incredibly strong squad last season with the additions of Ricky Kennet and Lee Bibring from the Lions, Jamie Cole and Daniel Fox have an embarrassment of riches at their disposal.


Neasden and Hendon just got stronger

By Danny Caro, September 4, 2008

Following a summer of high-profile signings, this season's top-flight ultimately looks like a two-horse race.
Defending champions North West Neasden A have promoted assistant-manager Daniel Fox to work alongside top boss Jamie Cole.

The pair have prioritised the title but with strength in depth, a repeat of last season's double is a distinct possibility.

By Danny Caro, September 4, 2008

The experts have spoken and it's official. Oakwood EDRS have been installed as title favourites, much to the surprise of North West Neasden B, South Manx A, North London Raiders A and Chigwell Athletic B.
