Fantastic Fairlop hit the jackpot

Boosted by the arrival of Daniel Garfinkle from Redbridge A, Fairlop FC produced their Sunday best to register their biggest win since joining the MGBSFL.

    Daniel Rosen fired a treble in the 10-0 demolition of Hertswood Vale. Adam Goldman, Kai Vale, Matt Berkley, Aaron Dias, Brad Gayer, Ryan Cole and Daryl Rubin accounted for the other goals for a Fairlop team who finished the weekend in seventh spot.

    Fairlop "were in control from the first minute," according to manager Aaron Dias. It took Vale just nine seconds to smash home a volley which set the tone for the game.

    The visitors controlled the game and Prince, "in the form of his life", came close with an effort Dias compared to "Messi against Getafe in 2007".

    The game really opened up and Dias managed to get himself on - "and boy did i make a difference". After setting up the attack for Goldman's goal, Dias fancied one for himself. Having received the ball in the area, he sold his marker a dummy and coolly finished into bottom corner.

    Hertswood were denied what would have been a consolation at 0-7, with the Fairlop keeper making a "world-class save, with a strong left hand".

    Reflecting on the goal bonanza, Dias told JC Sport: "It was great to see three debutants today - Guy Weisselberg and Mitch Gold returning from injury and Daniel Garfinkle making his first appearance since signing for us on Thursday.

    "On to next Sunday, Lions Vets in the last 16 of the Peter Morrison Trophy."

    Hertswood joint-manager Jacob Emanuel missed the game due to a family celebration. Reflecting on the game, he told JC Sport: "Essentially, we didn't turn up and got battered by a team that deserves to skip promotion straight to the Prem in the summer.

    "We felt it was a good opportunity to rest a couple of players who had a couple of niggling injuries...we've got some big games coming up in which we have to pick up points, so this game wasn't a priority.

    "Having said that, Danny [Hirschberger] spoke of the quality on show from Fairlop - an absolutely deserved win and I wish them all the best for the rest of the season.

    "Although MH Dons look to be running away with the league, I notice that they have yet to play Fairlop... I'm sure those two games will give the Dons an idea of what they could face should they get promoted next season.

    "I will also take this opportunity to say how refreshing it was to see Fairlop win so magnanimously in their post-match comments ... perhaps Bayern Mincha, in particular Daniel Holder, could learn a thing or two from Aaron Dias and co.

    "Our next three games will give us a clear indication of how successful our season will be. With only six points separating us from fourth-placed Catford, I expect us to step up against Faithfold, Raiders C and Straw Hat and grab as many points as possible."

    HERTSWOOD: Gal Alkalay, Josh Cohen, Simon Englander, Josh Gorb, Ashley Hirschburger, Harry Marlow, James Neidle, Isaac Segalov, Jonty Schogger, Jack Shulman. Edan Dodi. Subs: Danny Feuer, Anthony Snow

    FAIRLOP: Jacob Sanders, Daniel Bean, Matthew Berkley, Ryan Cole, Max Freedman, Bradley Gayer, Adam Goldman, Daniel Rosen, Daryl Rubin,, Kai Vale, Pierce Prince. Subs: Aaron Dias, Daniel Garfinkle, Mitchell Gold, Joel Russell, Guy Weisselberg

    SCORERS: Rosen, Goldman, Vale, Berkley, Dias, Gayer, Cole, Rubin
