Yaffe is a class act, says Collins

    Marc Yaffe marked his return to action in style by firing a hat-trick as South Manchester 2nd came from behind to defeat Leeds Maccabi 3rd.

    The striker, who has been out injured since May, recently completed 30 minutes for the first team before completing the full 90 for Neil Collins’ side on Sunday.

    And the South Manchester 2nd boss was full of praise for Yaffe, who showed his class with three deadly finishes.

    “We’ve been crying out for a striker since Jack Lee got injured and it was great to see Marc do the business,” said Collins.

    “He’s had injury problems and hardly played so I was really happy for him.

    “I think he had five chances and he’s scored three and set up another one for Aden Levin so that shows how good he is.

    “In the end, it was a good win but Leeds gave us a good game and we had to fight.”

    With just 12 men in the squad, boss Collins was forced to play at centre-half alongside son, Mark, while defender Darren Brewer deputised in goal for the injured Gary Stewart.

    But despite Leeds taking the lead, the visitors fought back to claim the points and leave themselves in positive mood ahead of next weekend’s Feldman clash with Hyde Park.

    “We had a very small squad available with eight out so it was always going to be difficult but we should have some back next week,” added Collins.

    “Jack Lee has been out for nearly six weeks but we’re hopeful he could return to action and that would be great.

    “It will be a difficult game but we’re looking forward to it.”

    Collins also revealed that first-choice keeper Gary Stewart is making good progress after suffering a horrific eye injury in last weekend’s defeat by Haroldeans.

    He said: “Gary came along to watch and was in very good spirits.

    “The eye is healing and hopefully he will be back in a couple of weeks. He might wear a head-guard but we’ll just be delighted to have him back.”
