FA Award a big boost for Jewish soccer, says Myer

    Brian Myer says he is proud to be associated with the Manchester Jewish Soccer League after it received a silver award from the FA.

    The MJSL has been recognised as the best grassroots league in the region following the accolade which is part of the FA’s Respect and Fair Play Award.

    League chairman Brian Myer said: "It’s an excellent achievement to be recognised by our governing football body and to be described as ‘one of the best Leagues in the country for fair play’ is indeed something that we can all be proud of.

    "Recognition in the wider community is always very welcome. Much of this recognition is due to the very hard work put in by our Secretary and vice-chairman, Paul Rose, who liaises constantly with the Manchester FA in his dual role on our League Executive and on the MFA committee.

    "So whilst we might be small in numbers, we are well known and recognised in football terms not only in our own community, but throughout Greater Manchester and the rest of the country.

    Now we need to maintain our high standards and, as usual, it is up to the managers, secretaries, players, referees and all who play any role in our League to ensure that we stay in this position.

    The MJSL will be rewarded with the choice of hosting the FA Cup or a guest speaker at an event, funding to improve coaching or hospitality tickets to see England at Wembley.

    FA Respect manager Dermot Collins said: "Achieving the Silver Award has marked the Manchester Jewish Soccer League out as one of the best league’s in the country. Through education, promotion and dogged perseverance, it has changed the behaviour of teams and individuals and in doing so helped to ensure the continuing health of our national game."
