MGBSFL DIVISION THREE
TEMPLE FORTUNE 2 REAL SOSOBAD 6

Dan Shafron believes his team have clicked into gear following the 6-2 demolition of Temple Fortune.

Two goals apiece from Richard Rosenthal and Barry Green earned the Sosobad boys their second consecutive victory in an exhibition of fantasy football in Pinner.

The Real gaffer commended Green following two stunning strikes, in a game where Andy Levy and Josh Jacobs added the gloss.

"Today the team were excellent," Shafron told JC Sport. "It was a very solid performance - we played very well, controlled a lot of the possession and were finally relentless in front of goal.

"The goal-scorers took their chances well and I am happy for Barry Green and Josh Jacobs to get off the mark, as well as Richard Rosenthal who scored two very well-worked goals.

"I must say that Green’s brace were, for me, very special and we are all delighted for him as they have been a long time coming and very much worth the wait.

"I think their heads dropped soon after we scored our third even though they did pull the game back to 3-2. They caught us out a couple times and took their chances which were more sloppy errors from us than well worked from them.

"Generally I thought the defenders were really solid with and without the ball and not once did we feel scared or not in control.

"Fortune were a team who were there for the taking today and it was a comprehensive victory however we know that upcoming games will not be as easy as this and we have to remain disciplined and focused if we want to be successful."

Chairman Josh Hambling added: "Today was a great birthday win for the manager who we now refer to as Dan Shafrinho.

"As each game passes, we are growing stronger and after our opening day slip, the team are bucking their ideas up especially after some firm words from myself and the manager, our work-rate, desire and overall quality of football is heading in the right direction.

"The boys have really taken to Shafrinho’s philosophy and the respect he gets within the club is rightly deserved. I know it’s early days, but I might have to renew his contract to stop Premiership clubs poaching him!

"It's great to get another win on the board and I am looking forward to a good contest against Rovers next week. I’m sure the boys will be buzzing."

The result saw Fortune slump to a third successive league defeat, with Zack Rich and Darren Zitren on target for the hosts.

Fortune manager Jonathan Cohen told JC Sport: "We have to stop gifting teams goals. There were three poor goals conceded today which were easily avoidable.

"We also have to put in the effort for 90 minutes."
