Give the girl a break

By Danny Caro, January 25, 2011

Spot the difference.

Sky Sports hauls Richard Keys and Andy Gray off its Monday Night Football programme following inappropriate comments towards a female assistant referee.

Meanwhile, a week after making inappropriate comments towards TV and radio presenter Vanessa Feltz, Ally Ross is at it again, albeit a less offensive remark this time.

The Sun columnist is doing himself no favours. Does he have a personal gripe with Vanessa? I have to ask.

Do The Sun care? Evidently not.

C’mon Ally. Leave the girl alone.

Pinner make their point

By Danny Caro, January 24, 2011

Under 18s maintained their title hopes with a 2-2 draw against Park Street Village in the Watford Friendly League Yellow Division.

The table-topping Sky Blues Under 18s arrived for their crucial league match with only eleven available players. Opponents Park Street hadn't played for some weeks due to bad weather and provided very tough opposition, which belied their mid-table status.

An even first half ended with an excellent finish from Matt Goodfield after he was set up by a fine through ball from skipper Alex Trup to put Pinner one up at the break.

Title rivals finish all square

By Danny Caro, January 24, 2011

Hyde Park and Republic of Mancunia failed to take full advantage of Manchester Maccabi 3rd’s shock defeat to Sporting JLGB.

Yochai Zorno cancelled out Oli Grant’s opener from the penalty spot for the home team whose player-boss Phillip Braham rued a missed opportunity.

“With Manchester Maccabi losing, a draw was a perfect result for them but not so perfect for us. We would have loved the three points but they came back strong. We should have killed the game off in the first half. Overall it was a good game with a fair few chances.”

Four-midable Brady set up Redbridge clash

By Danny Caro, January 24, 2011

Brady Maccabi booked a trip to Redbridge Jewish Care A in the quarter-finals of the JC Cyril Anekstein Cup after maintaining their domination over Division One rivals Camden Park with a 4-0 victory.

Manager, Josh Rosenfeld rested some of the big guns, as a cup game was a welcome distraction from the league. He also welcomed back season long absentee Oli Kenner to the squad, however after wheezing after 15 minutes of running the line it seems he may still be a few weeks away from fitness.

Match abandoned because the pitch was never playable

By Danny Caro, January 20, 2011

What's the most bizarre reason you've heard for a football match being abandoned? Rain, a thunderstorm, fighting. Not this time. Just when I thought that I'd heard it all, along comes another, an absolute classic.

The players from Pinner JFC and Los Blancos were tucking into their half-time oranges at the JC MSFL Division Four contest when Les Conway, the Pinner chairman, informed both teams and the referee that the match could not continue. Why, I hear you ask? Because the pitch was unplayable, apparently.
