Lewis lets Ra'anana off the hook

By Danny Caro, November 17, 2014

Runaway league leaders Ra'anana made the trip to the capital to take on in-form Jerusalem who had climbed to second.

Both sides were missing a couple of players, but were nonetheless near full strength for this titanic battle between the league's two top scoring teams and two of the meanest defences.

Just think, Morrison madness could’ve been easily avoided

By Danny Caro, November 14, 2014

In an age where the amateur game is struggling, numbers-wise, the burden of extra cost and commitment is something that appeals to very few clubs right now.

Further up the ladder, the JPT remains sectional in the early stages before opening up in the latter rounds, with the prize for the two finalists a big day out at Wembley.

Danny Caro's Quote of the Week: November 9

By Danny Caro, November 11, 2014

The cameras turned up in their droves for the big rematch - Hendon vs Redbridge part deux. Although both teams and managers passed the test without incident, and dare I say a touch of class, this week's top quip came from a little lower down the ladder. Yes, that man Jason Stein came up trumps again. He looks certain to have the JC Quote of the Season accolade wrapped up by Chanukah.
