    PETER MORRISON TROPHY QUARTER-FINAL
    MANCHESTER MACCABI 1st 0 BRADY MACCABI A 1

    Brady A will travel to Premier Division rivals Redbridge in the last four after edging past Manchester in an ill-tempered affair against the 2011 winners at Brooklands.

    Jonny Ellis was the matchwinner as Joel Nathan's boys joined Redbridge, South Manchester and Camden Park in the hat for the last four.

    This was a very tight match played on a poor surface and in freezing windy conditions. Manchester started the brighter with the wind behind them, however they failed to create any clear-cut chances against a Brady defence superbly marshalled by keeper Oli Colmans and central defenders Jordan Nathan and Ellis.

    As the half wore on Brady started to take control, and nearly scored from a Ben Joseph free kick that eluded everyone but was turned round the post by the alert Josh Samberg in the Maccabi goal.

    The second half started as the first finished and Brady should have scored from a corner when Josh Gordon missed from inside the six-yard box.

    Shortly afterwards Manchester lost Oliver Gilbert to a straight red for an over-the-top tackle and Brady took advantage straight away when Ellis powered in a great header from a Brad Sharp corner.

    Despite being down to 10 men, Manchester came back into the game but the central defender pairings of Jordan Nathan, Jonny Ellis before he went off injured and Ryan Fox stood firm and Brady held out for a great win.

    Jubilant Brady boss Joel Nathan told JC Sport: "The game was not the greatest advert for football, but we knew we were in for a battle and when it got tough they couldn't deal with our stronger players.

    "We now have a semi-final to look forward to and hope to go one stage further than last season."
