Supersub Stock hits late strike to clinch double for North West Neasden

A last-gasp strike from supersub Matt Stock helped North West Neasden A complete the league and cup double as they came from a goal down to beat 2007 league champions Hendon United A at Wingate & Finchley on Sunday.

The Peter Morrison Trophy final was far from the predicted classic and the manner of Neasden’s victory was anything but a work of art.


North London to be hit by cup fever

By Danny Caro, May 2, 2008

Wingate & Finchley will host a football extravaganza over the bank holiday weekend with the Jewish FA Cup final, better know as the Peter Morrison Trophy, the showpiece match.

It’s hard to separate North West Neasden A and Hendon United A and I’m expecting a classic with end-to-end action and plenty of goals. It looks set to be a classic with some of the leading lights in Jewish football on show. On a sombre note, the match, as will all league games, will be preceded by a minute’s silence in memory of JC MSFL vice-chairman Harry Shapiro.


Hammers ready to burst double bubble

By Danny Caro, May 2, 2008

Newly crowned JC MSFL champions North West Neasden A will look to complete the league and cup double when they take on last season’s league winners Hendon United A in the final of the Peter Morrison Trophy on Sunday afternoon.

Neasden, whose chairman is Sammy Carr, are no strangers to Wingate & Finchley and they are sure to bring a healthy following in their pursuit of more silverware. Having beaten the Hammers home and away in the league this season, manager Jamie Cole believes they have the psychological edge going into the game.

Hendon United A 7-1 Redbridge Jewish Care A

Hendon United A reached their first major final after outclassing Premier Division rivals Redbridge at Rowley Lane.

A delighted Hendon manager Jonathan Kestenbaum commented: “There was so much determination on show, having been beaten in three semi-finals in the past 12 months. I just got the sense throughout the whole squad that they knew this was a must-win game, and as they proved, they played some really good football.”
