MGBSFL PREMIER DIVISION
FAITHFOLD A 2 HARMEN 4

Oli Leslie believes Harmen can challenge on all fronts following a stunning 4-2 win at the home of 2013 champions Faithfold.

Strikers James Gershfield (2), Jake Gottlieb and super-sub Joey Lazare sealed a famous win.

Alex Kaye and record goal-scorer Daryl Phillips registering for Faithfold, but it was Harmen's day, much to the delight of co-manager Leslie.

"Big mention for Jake Gottleib and James Gershfield whose true class really shone through today and they proved today why they share so many Maccabiah caps between them," Leslie told JC Sport.

"We showed in the game that we will challenge on all fronts and every team that plays us should fear whats coming."

Harmen co-manager Joe Marsh told JC Sport: "Faithfold asked us a few questions in the game on Sunday, but we responded in the only way that we know how and that is to play football.

"Over the last three games the boys have been superb and all 14 boys battled hard today and continuing to attack even after Faithfold scored their two goals.

Disappointed Faithfold boss Zuriel Solomon told JC Sport: "I'm disappointed with the result - we just did not get going.

"We were always playing catch up and just made too many errors. We were missing a few today, but errors made really cost us. Well done to Harmen who have put a decent team together."

Harmen squad: Alex Bowman, Ben Henry, Ben Weinberg, Bradley Dryer, Bradley Sharp, David Ronson, George Fierstone, Harry Fine, Jake Gottleib, James Castle, James Gershfield, Joey Lazare, Jon Morris, Marc Foster, Omri Brinner, Ricky Rinder, Rob Blackman, Sam Castle
