NWN 'dug deep' to cage the Lions


Stirling Kay believes North West Neasden can use the 4-0 victory over Maccabi London Lions as the catalyst to kick-start their season.

Plagued by a series of injuries to key players and inconsistent availability, Neasden climbed off the foot of the Premier Division table courtesy of a double from Michael Field plus one apiece from Danny Sherman and Adam Arnold.

Kay commented: "We had so many players out, but we really rolled up our sleeves and put in a great team performance to earn three valuable points."

Oli Henry helped Blizzard Storm return to winning ways at the expense of SPEC FC in Division One.

Simon Moses lifted Los Blancos out of the relegation zone following a 6-5 win over title-chasing Camden Park. Zvi Freedman (2) and Adam Waters cemented the points.

A deadly double from Philippe Auret helped Whetstone come from behind to beat Oakwood B. Joint-manager Anthony Cohen commented: "The boys dug out a win without playing anywhere near their best."

FC Team C climbed above FC Team B after completing a league double in Division Two. Having beaten them 3-2 at the start of the month, strikes from Dan Stanton (2), Aron Barnes, Dan Alfreds and top-scorer Adam Stolerman sealed a 6-5 win. Danny Moss, Richard Salmon, Dan Silverman and Adam Rones were among the scorers for the B's who were denied a share of the spoils when Matt Davis kept out a penalty from Jon Breger.

FC Team C manager David Gordon said: "We now have some room for error, but the aim is to just continue our great league form and see where we end up."

High-flying AC Mill Hill were edged out by a single goal as Norstar London Raiders C registered their first victory thanks to a goal from Jarred Rudman.

King Crown maintained their one-point advantage at the top of Division Three following a 4-2 win over Lions Green. Phil Braham (2), Adam Nusenbaum and Yossi Lanning registered.
