Maccabi Masters review: September 10

There were victories for Chigwell Athletic, Maccabi London Lions A, EHRS Stonegrove and St John's Wood Tigers on the opening weekend of the Maccabi Masters Football League season.


Chigwell made clear their intention to regain the title with an emphatic 7-1 win over Brady Maccabi. Tim Frome had put Brady ahead but the east Londoners hit back in style through Scott Warren (2), Daniel Sugarman (2), Ben Graham, Daniel Castle and Robert Donn.

Lions A signalled their ambitions too, running out 5-1 winners over Scrabble, with goals from Saul Conway, Michael Abrahams (2), Danny Gordon and Bradley Lazarus. Tim Levene netted Scrabble’s consolation.

Meanwhile, in Division 2, two debut goals from Marc Morris and one from Martin Seifert saw EHRS to a 3-0 win over Brady B.

A late goal from Gary Myers secured a 2-1 victory for St John’s Wood Tigers over Marshside. Tigers had taken the lead through Jason Bentley just before half time and when Leon Wise headed in a Barry Silkman cross with just five minutes remaining, Marshside thought they’d earned themselves a point, only to be denied by Myers’ last gasp winner.
