Ellis helps Neasden retain Morrison

By Danny Caro, May 11, 2009

A 76th minute strike from defender Jonny Ellis helped NWN retain the Jewish FA Cup as they battled past Hendon in a war of attrition at Wingate & Finchley.

An uneventful first half saw Daniel Stanton come closest to breaking the deadlock but Hendon keeper Danny Berliner was equal to his volley.

Berliner was the hero again midway through the second half after Lee Cash's corner bounced up and hit the hand of Hendon's Dovid Korman. Ref Jon Smith, in his last match, pointed to the spot but Cash's low shot was brilliantly parried by the Maccabiah keeper.

Matt Sofier put them ahead after 70 minutes only for Raiders left-back James Fattal to level with the last kick of normal time.

Joint-manager Jamie Cole said: “Most of their team represent their Greek-Cypriot League who won the competition last year. It just shows how far Neasden as a club have come this season. We had to battle at times, harder then we ever had this season.”

PMT (northern section): Crumpsall 1 Westdene 1st 2

A late goal from Adam Leker edged Westdene 1st into the next round of the Peter Morrison Trophy as they beat Crumpsall.

This was a fiercely contested cup-tie with tackles flying in on both sides. It took until four minutes until the end before it was settled.

The first half belonged to Westdene as they dominated possession and the midfield area not allowing Crumpsall to settle. However, Crumpsall's defence was on top form keeping them at bay.
