    Norstar Old Boys' management team of Alan Dove and Jeremy Silverstone bowed out in style after announcing their retirement after a nine-year stint in charge of the Maccabi Masters team.

    The match in Paris signalled the fifth leg of their end-of-season tours, following previous visits to Amsterdam, Munich, Madrid and Brussels, and the match against Maccabi Paris-West proved to be a competitive affair.

    Norstar came from behind to win 5-4 with strikes from Brian Deal (3), Gary Rowland and Bruce Brent.

    Dove said: "We were up against a really talented Paris outfit, on a very bumpy pitch, in searingly hot conditions, but we coped brilliantly and deserved to win. It was a smashing game played in a fantastic spirit and it was lovely to bow out with a win."

    Silverstone commented: "It really does feel like an Entente Cordiale, and we look forward to welcoming them back to London for the second leg.

    "The past nine years have been incredible for all of us, and we've had more fun than we could possibly have imagined. Masters football has given us all a prolonged lease of life and the friendships we've developed will be life-long."

    Norstar Old Boys won the MMFL Division Two title in its inaugural season in 2003, and were runners up-in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

    The team evolved out of Mike Peters' original Norstar team which played in the AJY Men's League in the 1980s. There are now two Norstar teams in the MSFL, headed up by Mike's son, Philip.
