MJFL outdoor five-a-sides review


There were five team winners at the Maccabi Junior Football League outdoor five-a-side tournament.

In the Masters competition, Brady Maccabi White edged out Camden Park 1-0.

North London Raiders romped to a 5-1 victory over Brady Blue in the Plate final.

In the juniors events, HMH edged past Alyth Belsize Red 2-1 to lift the under-nine trophy.

London Maccabi Lions hit Hendon United White for six in the under-10 final.

The under-11 final was a tighter affair with Brady Blue squeezing past Lions White 2-1.

There was a seven-goal thriller in the under-12 final with BBM United overcoming Zig Zag 4-3.

MJFL chairman Laurence Thorne said: "We experienced another very successful outdoor five-a-sides day and welcomed 62 teams, covering all our Junior age groups, from Under 7 to Under 12.

"Games were played in the best of spirit and every game was officiated by qualified referees. The weather was quite kind to us and apart from two short sharp showers, the remainder of the day was bathed in warm sunshine, giving perfect playing conditions.

"During the afternoon session, non-competitive under-7 and under-8 matches where at the conclusion of the afternoon, with every player received a medal, whilst the competitive element came out for our Under 9, 10, 11 and 12 age groups where winners and runners-up medals were awarded."

The event attracted 500 Jewish children.
