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.

The boys are backing down

By Danny Caro, January 13, 2011

Danny Reuben, the head of London Maccabi Lions’ Sunday section, hit out at the club’s younger players after he was forced to pull its B team from the league.

Reuben cited a lack of commitment and enthusiasm as part of the reason the team had to fold. He said: “At the beginning of the season we were confident we had enough players. We desperately wanted to keep the side going and this is not a decision we have taken lightly. We did everything to keep the team alive.”

By Danny Caro, January 13, 2011

This year looks set to be a tough one for amateur sport. With numbers declining in competitive football and cricket nationwide, it is no surprise that the MSFL has lost a third team.

A sporting all-rounder, Ziff is passionate about driving more young people into Jewish cricket with the ultimate goal of setting up a Jewish super-club.

By Danny Caro, January 11, 2011

They huffed and they puffed - but Real Life still could not chalk up a first league win of the season in a ding dong battle against Zig Zag in the mud at Edgwarebury.

In many ways they WEre indebted to goalkeeper Will Martyn who pulled off three world-class saves - twice in the first half and once in the second - that meant the spoils were shared. And they'll be thankful for the contribution of Rob Greene who popped up with two quality goals in the second half.

By Danny Caro, January 11, 2011

The meeting in Modiin saw England were looking to protect an perfect record against a Jerusalem side starting to find form at the right time.

Jerusalem were well marshalled by Dan Kosky and league veteran Danny Newman who were both outstanding at keeping the England team to little more than half chances and long shots in the first half.
