Gothelf: Lions are fearless


Zack Gothelf insists his Oakhill Lions won’t fear anybody when the draw for the semi-finals of the Harold Feldman Trophy is made on Thursday.

The Lions continued their impressive run of form by thrashing Leeds Maccabi 3rd 7-1 to record their fifth successive victory.

And Gothelf, whose team are aiming to win the competition for an unprecedented third year in a row, is adamant it's his side which everyone will be fearing in the semi-finals.

“We’re not at all bothered who we get in the last four,” said the Lions boss.

“We’re pretty confident at the moment and we’re playing some really good football.

“We didn’t start that well against Leeds and we found it quite difficult in the fog, but we turned it on after the break.

“We passed the ball around beautifully and it was a real joy to watch.”

Rob Selwyn scored a hat-trick, while Benji Las, Josh Daniels, Marc Woolfe and Harry Roache were also on target.

And Gothelf says his side’s second half showing was just too much for a Leeds side still searching for their first win of the season.

He added: “We stepped it up after the break and Leeds just didn’t look like they could live with us.

“They did well in the first half and should have scored, but we really improved in the second half and were very comfortable.”
