Danny Caro's Quote of the Week: November 15


Rachmanus spirit is part and parcel of Maccabi football and after the pull-outs of Matchday 10, it was so refreshing to see Jonathan Cohen's Temple Fortune battle on brave with only 10 men (for 90 minutes) against Catford & Bromley Maccabi.

They may not have won, but come the final whistle, he was rightly proud of his players.

Cohen told JC Sport; "We had to play the entire game with just 10 players and no recognisable keeper this week owing to two weddings and one no-show on the day. In the end Catford tried to run the ball into the corner and will admit that they played a very good and resilient side on the day. I was very pleased with the effort and commitment shown by all."



- WILL CASTLE (Camden Park) - "Unfortunately we were just a bit short today - you know you are in trouble when I end up on the pitch!"

- JON JACOBS (Redbridge JC A) - "A draw would have been a fair result on the day but am just delighted with the commitment and passion of my squad - they wear the Redbridge shirt with a lot of pride and the win was just rewards for keeping going"

- ADAM GLEKIN (Hendon B) - "Next week it will be vital for us to get our mojo back and not let this minor blip turn into a full blown slump"

- JASON STEIN (Oakwood B) - "Yes we missed he opportunity to go back top, but it's still a ninth game in a row unbeaten which isn't to be sniffed at"

- RIC BLANK (Oakwood A) - "We seemed to lose our heads and acted as if we were down with five to play as opposed to one all. Quick throws, free kicks, square balls across the middle of the park - we killed ourselves"
