Big guns made no difference, says Stein



Jason Stein described Oakwood's victory over AC Mill Hill as "far from one-sided" after his big guns ended the season in style.

Ben Zloof put Mill Hill ahead before Oakwood stepped up a gear, with Bradley Wine (2), Dan Ash and Guy Helman completing the turnaround.

Oaks manager Jason Stein told JC Sport: "It was an enjoyable game and I was pleased with our performance. Players like Jacob Richler Kleiman, Dan Ash, Ben Buck, James Abrams and Oren Hury have been mainstays of our side this season and I'm glad for them that they could sign off with a win.

"Fifth spot is about par for us this season and we want to do better next year. But we've achieved more wins, scored more, conceded fewer and earned more points than the B's did under the failed Tussie administration last year.

"Ian can bleat on all he likes, but the facts speak for themselves and I'll be taking the necessary steps to strip him of his Ambassadorial post within the club due to his insubordination. That's an exclusive for you.

"On Mill Hill, there is no point denying some that there is some tension between ourselves and Mill Hill which stems from a horrible affair in October and the fact they refused to play us on 3G in February, but I had a very, very cordial chat and a laugh with the Mill Hill hierarchy after the game and they're a good set of people doing a good job for their football club.

"In Ben Zloof, they've got a top striker and I wish them every success next year. However, there's a bit of revisionism taking place. Zloof put them 1-0 up, so them painting this is as a one-sided affair isn't true.

Mill Hill boss Dan Beresford told JC Sport: "I thought we gave as good as we could against an Oakwood side with several first team players from the Premier Division.

"Going in 0-0 at the break, we came out second half and took the lead through yet again a quality goal, but then we got over-run by theire Premier players who all scored, so overall I'm not to dissatisfied or disappointed with the result.

"I just wonder why in Division Two, not for the first time this season, we have played against a Premier side, as FC Team dropped into Division Two from the Premier this season, so I'm thinking about the option of signing Joe Jacobson, Eyal Berkovic and Ronnie Rosenthal for next season, and maybe Dean Furman."
