LML U10's clinch WFL Red Division title


London Maccabi Lions Under 10s won the Red Division of the Watford Friendly League with three games to spare after beating Borehamwood Red 2000 5-3, with strikes from Sam Goldberg, Joseph Abrahams, Oli White and two goals from Jason Burns.

After winning the Red Division at Under 9s, matching this feat at Under 10s is just an incredible achievement – it’s a first for London Maccabi Lions, and not many teams in the Watford Friendly League achieve this feat either.

Manager Nigel Burns, who is assisted by Joel Philips, said: "This is a really special group with individual flair, a huge amount of technical ability and battling qualities all in abundance and they play as a team.

" Most of the boys have been together for three seasons, with some of them playing together for four - they train really hard and fully deserve to be where they are."

Having won the double last season, LML have also reached both the Watford Friendly League Cup finals in May. Burns added: "A possible treble is on the cards, but we know a lot of hard effort will be required."

Lions: Scott Leslie, Brandon Roach, Moshi Benaim, Ben Werter, Oliver Kaye, Oliver White, Sam Goldberg, Joseph Abrahams, Jason Burns, Dylan Phillips
