By Danny Caro, September 13, 2010

A controversial last-minute penalty denied Manchester Maccabi 1st victory in the Thameside League Division One as they were forced to share the points following a four-goal thriller against Astley.

Played in windswept conditions, it was Maccabi who played the better football and dominated the first 25 minutes with some lovely one and two-touch football without an end product. But for all there lovely play it was Astley who scored first.

Early signs look good for Israel

By Danny Caro, September 7, 2010

I managed to stream the entire 90 minutes of Israel's 2012 qualifying match against Malta, on Iraq Goals of all places. The irony of it. My first impressions of the team under Luis Fernandez team were positive, even if it was against limited opposition.

Under Dror Kashtan, the former incumbent, I'd been left frustrated by his negative tactics with the team never fulfilling its potential, especially when drawn in a weak group. This was just the kind of game that Israel would have made hard work of under him, perhaps nicking a late goal at the death to save their blushes.

Maccabi U11 start in style

By Danny Caro, September 7, 2010

Maccabi Under 11's kicked off their season with a solid performance in the their first game at the 11-a-side level.

Playing at home on a full size pitch for the first time was always going to be hard for the youngsters, and managers Mark Cook and Ian Ballin set the team up to play in a 4-1-4-1 formation.

Maccabi took the lead halfway through the first half when Marley Rubens picked up on the ball on the halfway line and danced around two defenders before squaring to Sam Green who made no mistake from eight yards.

MAL maintain winning habit

By Danny Caro, September 6, 2010

MAL celebrated winning the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League Division 3 title with a friendly victory against Grimsdyke CC at Old Camdenians.

Grimsdyke won the toss and chose to bat on a typically firm looking wicket. The openers survived well against some good swing bowling from Yoav Lebens and Mark Landau, managing to 'guide' a few edges to the third man area along the way. It took a bit of good fortune to break the partnership, Oram striking firmly down the ground only to see Lebens deflect the ball onto the stumps in his follow through to run out Sulieman for 23.

London Lions on the up

By Danny Caro, September 6, 2010

London Lions climbed to fifth in the South Midlands League Division One after finally won back to back games with a 3-1 victory over Amersham Town.

A double from James Gershfield and one from Aron Barnes helped them build on the recent 6-0 drubbing of previously unbeaten Sun Postal Sports.

The Lions made hard work against Amersham. A host of missed chances and then a poor error of judgement nearly cost the home side all three points but in the end the Lions always had enough to get the right result.

By Danny Caro, September 6, 2010

A brave display from Shahar Peer was not enough to stop Venus Williams from powering through their fourth round clash at Flushing Meadows.

Seeded 16 at the US Open, Peer succumbed to third seed 6-7, 3-6 as she suffered her sixth straight defeat against the collusus.

Peer broke Venus Williams to lead 3-2 in the first set but failed to hold her serve before losing 7-3 in the tie-break.
