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.


Oaks start out as favourites

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.


Thornes stun Harmen

August 20, 2008

Southgate Harmen B 0
Glenthorne Utd B 2

First half strikes from Jamie Weinrich and Joshua Hambling kept Glenthorne United B unbeaten in their short history after a dominant performance against the Minor Cup finalists Southgate Harmen B.

The Essex boys started brightly and were almost rewarded within 10 minutes when a long-range effort from Matt Conway bounced off the woodwork.


Goldsmith inspires FC Team

By Danny Caro, August 12, 2008

FC Team A displayed a gritty workman-like performance in their second pre-season friendly of the campaign. With up to seven regulars not available the squad was threadbare.

Raiders dominated possession for vast periods of the game however when given the chance FC Team looked equally as dangerous going forward with superb performances by the entire midfield and forward line.


Ryan Crowned King By The Knights

August 11, 2008

After a shakey start to East London Knights pre season campaign, they were entertained by a division 3 outfit in Faithfold C. Although playing some good football in recent weeks they have lacked a cutting edge.


Silver stuns Bafana

By Danny Caro, August 11, 2008

London Maccabi Lions B and Bafana Bafana opened their pre-season programme with a close and hard fought game at Rowley Lane this Sunday.

With a tough four week programme of fitness behind them, Lions came into this game with much to prove to new manager Gavin Stollar, who was taking charge of his first game with the Rowley Lane club.

Cash claims the ultimate prize

By Danny Caro, June 6, 2008

Lee Cash has been crowned JC MSFL player of the season as North West Neasden enjoyed a clean sweep at the end-of-season awards.

The marksman enjoyed a memorable campaign, lifting the Peter Morrison and Premier Division trophies. The Spurs fan also chipped in with 19 league goals and was the second top scorer in league and cup.

After picking up his award in Edgware, Middlesex, Cash said: “It’s a great honour to win, but I’d also like to stress that if it wasn’t for the team and all that we’ve achieved this year, then I don’t think I would have received this award.
