Welcome to the Maccabi London Lions Blue homepage. James Gershfield will lead the Cyril Anekstein Cup holders into the season, with his focus firmly set on more glory
Herts Senior Cup, Peter Morrison Trophy, Cyril Anekstein Cup, MGBSFL Premier Division
HOPES FOR THE SEASON: To continue on from the lions tradition last year and win silverware. I'm aiming high and aim to compete at the top on all fronts
PLAYERS IN: Andrei Grayson, Jordan Levy (from Edgware Town), Jack Mattey (promoted from youth), Akiva Levin (promoted from youth), Jamie Cohen, Declan Green, Max Mizrahi (promoted from youth), Sam Hammerton (promoted from youth), Alex Levack, Adam Myeroff, Tony Gold, Matty Klienman. A few more signing expected but currently in talks with player agents which is holding up the deals being done
PLAYERS OUT: None - no one wants to leave what is promising to be an exciting journey. I want to bring the glory days of 'Sunday Lions dominance' back to Jewish football
ONES TO WATCH: Akiva Levin and Jack Mattey - TWO players that are fully deserving of their call-up to men's football from the Lions youth set-up. Both very technical and will dance their way past defenders. The Bale and Ronaldo of Jewish Football.
WHAT WILL THE TEAM BRING TO THE LEAGUE THIS SEASON?
KIT: Royal Blue
HOME GROUND: Rowley Lane - the home of football
SPONSOR: The Alan Mattey Charitable Trust. SkinnyDip London will also be sponsoring our warm up kits
WHAT WILL YOUR TEAM BRING TO THE LEAGUE THIS SEASON? A mix of Cyril Anekstein Cup winners, an influx of youth players and some experienced heads from the Masters will no doubt bring the glory days and trophies back to the Lane. Having won three trophies last year with the Lions' first team, gaffer Gershfield's aim is to win another three trophies this year with my Sunday side. He told JC Sport: "If I fail to prepare I will have to prepare to fail and I don't like failure!"
