Fairlop two good for Cats

Daniel Garfinkle and James Jaconelli earned Fairlop their seventh win of the season by seeing off a resilient Catford team. The east Londoners are now 13 points behind leaders Bayern Mincha with five games in hand.

    Jubilant Fairlop manager Aaron Dias told JC Sport: "I'm sure Jeff will agree with me when I say the scoreline flattered Catford. We knew it was going to be a tough game after the draw earlier in the season. And the last-minute change of pitch to a muddy bobbly pitch was never going to suit the Jewish Barcelona, but we started fast and went 1-0 up in 10 minutes. The lads must have had a late night though as they went to sleep for the last 20 minutes of the first half.

    "But we came again in the second half and after wasting a number of good chances, we finally got the second which killed off any chance of a late surge for Catford.

    "Overall, I'm really happy with our performance. I think today showed how far the team has matured since our incorporation, and at no stage did the boys panic.

    "The club have rewarded the boys' recent form with a winter break to Barcelona so no game next week, then onto the big one the Dons away, let's just hope they remember the goalposts!"

    Cats boss Jeff Gotch told JC Sport: "We produced a good defensive performance but Fairlop are clearly a very good side, littered with very good players. Good luck to them in their persuit of the title."
