Meet the teams: L'Equipe


New manager Nick Stern has been busy bolstering his squad ahead of the new season as he looks to bring glory to the club.

COMPETITIONS ENTERED: We will be entering all Jewish competitions as well as hoping for a Minor Cup to end the season

HOPES FOR SEASON: Our hopes are to bring the first piece of silverware to L'Equipe's cabinet.

SQUAD ADDITIONS: Just a couple new signings this year, namely Dan Fisher and Grant Bates from Lions. As well as renewing the contracts of some key players, Mark and Andy Smith, James Mandel, Jeremy Newton and James Bell.

WHICH ONE EXCITES YOU MOST? Seeing Grant Bates have a first full season in the Maccabi league should bring fear to all our opponents.

PLAYER OUT: No players have left

ONES TO WATCH: A dynamic midfield duo of James Bell and Jeremy Newton should be very exciting as well as seeing Jules 'Tony Adams' Bohm

MAIN RIVALS: I have a lot of respect for Jeff Gotch over at Catford as well as looking forward to seeing Scrabble back in the league.

CAPTAIN: Mark Singer will remain as captain fantastic this season

SPONSOR: T. Grant Well:Being - an up-and-coming Osteopath and personal trainer based in North London

HOME GROUND: The fortress, West Hendon playing fields

WHAT WILL YOUR TEAM BRING TO THE LEAGUE THIS SEASON? Our team will bring cohesion to the league. We will never forfeit games, will ensure that we are ready to play with smiles on our faces each week and most importantly we will aim to bring fun to Sunday mornings, whatever the conditions or however wet and windy it is!
