Season 2013/14 preview: Los Blancos


Competitions entered: MSFL Division One and CA Cup

Have you made any new signings? We have found a worthy replacement for keeper Josh Cohen in Nick Grosse from Raiders along with Darren Russell and Matt Keston. We have also completed the signing of James Joseph of Hendon B as well as Sam Cramer and Jono Gaon

Which of the signings excites you most? James Joseph is once to watch with his bursting runs from midfield. If Gaon can continue where he left off with his goal tally then this season could see record number of goals from Los Blancos

Have any players left? Josh Cohen, one of our founding members and star goalkeeper, is making Aliyah and will be sorely missed. Other than that we have retained the vast majority of our star players

What are your hopes for the season? Always aiming high and hoping we can adjust to the demanding Division One quickly. If we finish above mid-table then that would be a satisfying result

Which players would you describe as the 'ones to watch' and why? Adam Waters can change a game with one of his bursting runs so he is definitely one to watch. So too James Joseph and creative spark Darren Russell. As always Julian Gertner will terrorise teams from his right back position when he returns in November

Which team do you consider your strongest challengers? Most of the teams are unknown to us, but Brady B were very impressive last season so they will be a tough team to beat

Captain: Adam Waters

Team sponsor: Continuing their support from last season Cohen Arnold chartered accountants and auditors are our sponsor

Home ground: West Hendon playing fields

What will your team bring to the league this season? Pride, passion and determination ... and a team of mensches!
