Peter Morrison Trophy

The clash of the titans is the perfect way to end the year

By Danny Caro, December 18, 2008

The best two teams in the JC MSFL will go head-to-head on Sunday as Chigwell Athletic A entertain runaway leaders North West Neasden A at Hadley FC in Arkley.

Thirteen points clear of their nearest rivals, Neasden have been scoring for fun this season with captain marvel Lee Cash in red-hot form. The Maccabiah hopeful has already scored 25 goals this term and going into the tie on the back of a seven-goal bonanza last week, will be the one to watch out for.

Hammers two good for Bafana

PMT: Hendon Utd A 2 Bafana Bafana 0

Upon arriving at West Hendon, both teams were amazed to see a lake had formed outside the changing rooms and feared that yet another postponement would ensue. However, to everyone's surprise, the pitch was in near perfect condition and Hendon had a rare chance to play some football on a Sunday morning.

The game started briskly with Hendon creating the better of the chances and the impressive Avidan Last was denied three times in the first half hour with only the woodwork denying Saul Conway.

By Danny Caro, December 4, 2008

I can't believe what the world is coming to with pink shirts and boots becoming increasingly popular at all levels of the game. First, South Manx A wore the feminine-coloured tops. This was followed by the JC MSFL's answer to Arsenal striker Nicklaus Bendtner as East London Knights player-manager James Ryan and Glenthorne United B's Jason Silver recently invested in a pair of Nike Mercurial Vapor IVs.
