Chigwell run riot in first round of Maccabi GB Peter Morrison Trophy

Club continue their impressive start to their season, which has seen them rack up four league wins from four games


The first round of this season’s Maccabi GB Peter Morrison Trophy took centre stage on Sunday morning, with the standout performance of the day being Club De Chigwell’s 13-0 win over Lads on Torah.

Continuing their impressive start to their season, which has seen them rack up four league wins from four games to see them top Division Two, Chigwell’s Jake Sugar and Joe Klein scored four goals each, with Ollie Silver, Ben Rodol, Josh Novack, Sam Adams and Nick Goodrich also all getting on the scoresheet to complete the most emphatic of victories.

Manager Joshua Dobias said: “It was a very good performance against a much-improved Lads on Torah side. We now go again next week in the league and look forward to see who we draw in the cup.”

The holders Oakwood A booked their place into the next round with a 2-1 win over a battling Real Madreidel side. Joshua Bharier and Charlie Kasler scored for the Os, with manager Jake Finestein saying: “It was a tough game against a well-drilled team. We dominated the game, took our chances eventually and are now looking forward to the next round.”

Brook Farm Rovers were involved in arguably the most dramatic game of the day, finding themselves ultimately on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline against London Athletico. Marc Charles, Philippe Auret and Ben Levene all scored for Rovers.

Manager Dan Cohen said afterwards: “We started awfully going 3-0 down, but kept battling and got ourselves back in the game. We pushed for an equaliser at the end but wasn’t to be. We need to cut out the defensive mistakes we’re making and will then start winning games.”

Temple Fortune put in a spirited performance against Redbridge Jewish Care Purple, but it wasn’t enough as they suffered a 2-0 home defeat.

Goals from Dylan Berger and Joshua Gavin weren’t enough to prevent HMH B losing 3-2 to Millbrook Park Calcio, while Natan Blank and Joe Metliss were other to score in vain, as Hampstead Ducks were beaten 4-2 at Stoke Salmon.

Camden City came away from 40 Year Wanderers with a 7-2 win, while there were walkover wins awarded to Mill Hill Dons, NL Raiders and Hendon United.

The one league game played saw Brady Maccabi FC go joint-top in Division Two as they made it four wins from four with a 5-0 win at Beitar Bushey.

Goals from Aaron Diamond, Ben Myers, Conor Brand, Jake Aspis and an own goal sealed the win, with manager Ricky Ansher saying: “We went in knowing this would be a tough fixture after facing them on the opening day of the season, but our hard work is starting to show, especially in the dominance of today’s game. Being able to keep clean sheets while keeping the goals flowing, led to a very enjoyable and positive performance today”.

Elsewhere, HMH bowed out of the London Sunday Challenge Cup when they were beaten 6-2 at Baiteze Squad FC.

Maccabi Masters Football League leaders Scrabble dropped their first points of the season as they were held to a 1-1 draw at EHRS Stonegrove.

Russell Rich gave EHRS a well-deserved half-time lead before Scrabble grabbed an equaliser with 20 minutes to go through Jamie Kaye. Scrabble player-manager Jon Yantin admitted: “EHRS were unlucky to not secure all three points as they put in an excellent performance against a disjointed Scrabble side.”

Elsewhere, goals from Paul Doctors and Darren Dryer earned Maccabi London Lions a 2-0 home win over Temple Fortune, while Brady claimed their second win from three games with an entertaining 6-3 victory over Glenthorne.

Kevin Lotzof bagged a brace, with Gavin Sherman, Paul Rodin, Paul Shamplina and Scott Ansher also all on target. Sid Shaw, Marc Linch and Gary Adams replied for Glenthorne.

London Lions’ First XI picked up a point on the road in their latest Spartans South Midlands Football League Premier Division match, drawing 0-0 at Stansted. The draw leaving them in joint-13th place in the table.

London Lions’ Development team also picked up a point at the weekend, as David James Cohen, Aron Gale and Frank Hyman all scored in their 3-3 draw at home to Everett Rovers. Laurence Judah’s side now sit in sixth place in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division.
