Masters Team of the Season: profiles


Phil Caplin (Camden Park) - the Camden stopper was busier that he would've liked this season but he continues to leap around in goal like a 15-year-old

Rob Kaplan (Camden Park) - another member of the Camden old school, Kaplan rarely came out second best against players sometimes half his age. A true competitor

Warren Schenk (Jewventus) - another solid campaign from the MSFL stalwart. Reads the game like Maldini, plays it like John Terry

Jason Sears (Brady Maccabi) - At 49 years old Jason has once again proved to be a rock at the heart of our defence. He captains our side and for a young team its very good to have someone like jason to look up too. He has helped me out and made my job a lot easier and every week he remains to be one of the fittest players on the field.. He remains to win everything in the air and i vote him for player of the year.. he deserves it.. Superb footballer, a wonderful person and everyone in Jewish football should look up to him.

Pete Lazard (London Maccabi Lions A) - the oldest player in the league kept up with the MSFL's finest and ensured that the Lions were competitive

Rick Harris (Camden Park) - pooped up with some useful goals. Put in a shift every week. Likes to keep things easy like Sunday morning

Danny Reuben (London Maccabi Lions) - Reubs has been a real club man this season. Played in the Garston Vets League, MSFL Premier and Division One. Distractions off the pitch did not impact on performances on it (and I'm not talking superinjunctions!)

Gabriel John (Jewventus) - Tyger from the halfway line. No-one will ever forget John's stunning strike from the halfway line. Probably because he'll remind us all every day for the rest of his life. No-one hits a football truer that the man who evented Tygerpaw. Look out for him in next year's Rich List (PG!)

Ben Simons (Faithfold C) - super Simons came away with 29 league goals to his name. Played a key role in the team's Barry Goldstein triumph. Feed him and he will score. It does what it says on the packet

Daryl Phillips (Faithfold A) - still regarded as one of the top strikes in the JC MSFL. Warmed-up for the Morrison final with four goals in 20 minutes of a Masters match. Also scored a hat-trick against Raiders and you will do well to find a harder working striker

Mark Wagman (Brady Maccabi & Maccabi Masters Rep) - kept the Raiders defence on it toes in the Morrison and finished the season with another double to his name. One of the first names on Dan Collins' teamsheet. Hit the winner in the cup final
