JC Olim League Week 12 review

By Danny Caro, January 19, 2011

Jaffa recorded an emphatic 6-0 victory over Modiin in the JC Olim League.

A booking error at the Modiin home pitch meant that this game was played at a neutral venue in south Tel Aviv.

It was not long until the team from down the road in Jaffa took an early lead. Playing up front in place of his suspended brother, Daniel Berkeley tucked away his first of the night to put Jaffa ahead.

The following 20 minutes saw Modiin come back into the game and dominate possession without creating too many shooting opportunities.

Manchester Maccabi 3rds make it 10 out of 10

By Danny Caro, January 18, 2011

Daniel Rubenstein (2), Harry Myers, Max Rose, Adam Stevens and an own goal helped Manchester Maccabi 3rds maintain their six-point advantage over the chasing pack as they thumped Westdene 2nd 6-2 in the MJSL.

Maccabi controlled proceedings throughout, but Westdene set themselves up defensively in the first half and were able to keep Maccabi largely at bay as a result.

The visitors were playing their first league game for over a month, and it showed as they displayed signs of rustiness in the final third.

By Danny Caro, January 18, 2011

Night Cricket resumed in Israel last week after a mid-season break. All the teams in the second division are chasing League leaders Pearl Wanderers Cricket Club, with the Gold Insurance Bet Shemesh Lightning team producing an excellent performance by beating Modi'in EasyIsrael by 8 runs.

By Danny Caro, January 18, 2011

High-flying FC Team came from 3-1 down to win a seven-goal thriller against Greens United in the Middlesex County League Division One.

West Ham ‘committed’ to keeping Avram Grant

By Danny Caro, January 18, 2011

West Ham United today confirmed that Avram Grant will continue in his role as first-team manager.

It appeared that a successor would be appointed following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at home to Arsenal, after which the Israeli manager threw his scarf into the crowd.

There was speculation that Martin O’Neill, the former Aston Villa boss, would be appointed but it has been reported that he was unwilling to put himself forward while Grant remained in charge.

Ally Ross: Hang your head in shame

By Danny Caro, January 18, 2011

Vanessa Feltz has received some rave reviews following the launch of her new BBC Radio 2 show. But it appears that not everyone is a fan.

I don't usually read Ally Ross' column in The Sun, but his piece today was well below the belt, to say the very least. Actually quite vicious, in fact.

Having given more digs than a Chilean miner, Ross (par 6) compares Feltz's new show on Channel 5, where she offers advice on style, beauty and relationships, to "Hermann Goering being given a job on the check-in desk at El Al".

London Lions reserves in seventh heaven

By Danny Caro, January 17, 2011

A strong Lions side eventually ran out emphatic winners away at Tring on Saturday, but the gale force wind and heavy, sloping pitch meant they had to work hard to see off spirited opponents.

Two early runs from Ben Ellis set the tone for Lions' attacking intentions, but with the slope in their favour and the cross wind making things tough full stop, Tring were able to get out and at Lions, with the swirling balls tough for Frank Hyman and Adam Lauffer at centre back, the latter though again excelling in unfamiliar territory.

Patience the name of the game as Phillips send Faithfold through

By Danny Caro, January 17, 2011

A hat-trick from Daryl Phillips steered former winners Faithfold A into the fourth round of the Peter Morrison Trophy as they overcame a gritty Holy Mount Zion.

The Premier Division side were on top throughout the first half with Paul Babai and Benjy Dymant dominating in midfield and wingers Lorian Madanes and Joe Cohen both looking extremely dangerous. However strong defending from the Division Three team kept Faithfold at bay.

The deadlock was finally broken after a period of concerted pressure. Good work on the right by

Colmans wonder goal caps Brady win

By Danny Caro, January 17, 2011

A goal of the week contender from Brady keeper Oli Colmans – that travelled the distance of the pitch – was clearly the icing on the cake as the Edgware club moved top of the JC MSFL Division One with a 6-0 demolition of Montana Boca United A.

Having come close to scoring earlier in the game, the stalwart keeper claimed the game’s final goal with a wind-assisted drop-kick that flew over stranded Montana keeper Lee Duskwick before nestling in the net for his first goal in senior football.

By Danny Caro, January 17, 2011

AC Whetstone secured the Maccabi Junior League Under 14 title with their 11th consecutive win of the season.

They beat title rivals Hendon White 5 -2 at The Hive in Edgware. The victory takes Whetsone to 22 points from 11 games and means they cannot be caught at the top.

Whetstone opened with a 20 yard thunderbolt from David Clements.

Hendon equalised minutes later with a scrambled finish from a corner but Phillipe Auret restored AC Whetstone's lead when he coolly rounded the keeper.
