Henry Swerner Cup final preview

    James Bloom hopes that Faithfold can make it a cup double on Sunday when his Masters team take on double-chasing Brady Maccabi at Underhill.

    With the club's MSFL A-team involved in the Peter Morrison Trophy final against Manchester Maccabi at Boundary Park, Bloom believe his troops have what it take to stop the Brady juggernaut.

    FAITHFOLD PLAYER PROFILES

    BRADY PLAYER PROFILES

    Bloom told JC Sport: "Brady are obviously a quality team but we played them in the final last year and only lost in the last few minutes.

    "We have signed some decent new players this season who have made a big impact."

    Faithfold striker Joel Nathan poses arguably the biggest threat to Brady's double hopes. The marksman hopes to catch the eye of the on-looking Barnet scouts who are apparently in the market for a proven goal-scorer following last week's League 2 heroics against Port Vale.

    There were 4,500 fans at Underhill last Saturday and although fewer are expected in Sunday's MMFL Henry Swerner showpiece, the WAGs, children, grandchildren, friends and family members are sure to drum up some atmosphere.

    Bloom said: "We are looking forward to the occasion and know if we play as we have at times this season we can give Brady a very decent game.

    "We have had some decent results recently including a 6-1 win over Glenthorne so we approach the game full of confidence."

    It's been another excellent season for Brady A that has seen them retain their title for the fourth year in succession and the fifth in six seasons in the league. The Edgware boys are also trying to complete the double for the third time in four years.

    Once again, under the managership of Daniel Collins, Brady A provided the core of the Masters Rep side which reached the final stages of the Peter Morrison Trophy.

    Players to watch out for include red-hot striker Mark Wagman, defenders Nigel Goldthorpe and Adam Gishen plus Max Radford.

    The man-of-the-match award in Sunday's final has been honoured in memory of the late Peter Moss. His son, Gideon, will present the trophy.

    Big match ticket:
    MMFL Henry Swerner Cup Final
    Faithfold Masters vs Brady Maccabi Masters
    Underhill Stadium, Barnet FC
