Sweet 16's do the trick for London Maccabi Lions

    JOHN RUBENS UNDER 16 CUP FINAL
    Manchester Maccabi 1 London Maccabi Lions 4

    Strikes from Jonny Daitz (2), Sammy Kingston and Jack Davis steered London Maccabi Lions to victory in the under-16 final as they beat Manchester Maccabi 4-1 to lift the John Rubens Cup at Salford FC.

    Leo Berger put Manchester ahead on the stroke of half time, but the Lions stepped up a gear to win comfortably in the second half.

    Lions boss Gavin Alexander said: “I’m delighted for the boys. We have never played in a national Maccabi tournament so to win is fantastic, especially with an under-15 team in an under-16 competition. It shows just how good a squad these Lions boys are.

    “Jordan Freeman who was voted players player of the year took captaincy for the game, but it was a real team performance.

    “We look forward to defending it again next year.”

    Manchester manager Tony Gellman said: “It was literally a game of first halves but once they equalised the writing was on the wall.

    “We had the wind in the first half but Lions are a very good team and deserved to win, even if the scoreline flattered them a little. Our boys competed exceptionally well against a physically stronger team.”
