South Manchester Maccabi retain NJCL title

    South Manchester Maccabi retained the NJCL crown for the third consecutive season after easing to a nine-wicket victory in the title-decider against Manchester Maccabi.

    Put in to bat, Maccabi had no answer to the pace of Akiva Lieberman (3-11) and the guile of David Glick (4-13).

    Wickets fell regularly with only Avi Barr (15) putting up any resistance. Lieberman capped an excellent performance with a stunning full-length diving catch to dismiss Doyle.

    Maccabi were dismissed for 39 as Jonny Lieberman (2-2) and Avrom Topperman wrapped up the innings.

    South encountered no real problems knocking off the runs as Shaya Rabinovitz and the ever-improving Dovid Black reached the target for the loss of one wicket.

    A maximum 25-point haul ensured that South kept hold of the trophy against a Maccabi side who have tailed off badly following an impressive start.

    The race for the runners-up is hotting up after Salford claimed a 50-run victory over Leeds Maccabi.

    Simon Williams (92) and Daniel Goldsbrough (88) helped Salford finish the first innings on 220-4.

    Key contributions from Daniel Paul (54), Elliot Koffman (45) kept Salford in the game but they closed on 170-9.
