PETER MORRISON CUP – FIRST ROUND:
BAYERN MINCHA 2 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE A 4
Redbridge oversaw a tough challenge from Mincha to book its place in the second round.
Nate Kashket scored twice, with player-manager Sam Rank and Jamie Bernstein also on target. Rank told jewishnews.co.uk: “Our squad was tested today, with a number of players being rested for the mouthwatering game against Fairlop- luckily the player manager can score worldies.
“Our current form is very similar to Spurs – performance levels nowhere near the ability they can produce, but win after win. Results win leagues- not performances.
“We need to learn to be on the ball from minute one, and to be consistently playing the football they can. In the hat for next round, hopefully we get a big tie.”
BRADY MACCABI 1 LOS CAMDEN A 2
The all-Premier Division tie saw the visitors book their place into the next round thanks to a 90th minute strike from Elliot Meslawy.
Oli Sade had fired them ahead, with manager Stirling Kay telling jewishnews.co.uk: “Again I am left praising this sides character who got stuck in and got the result we needed in very difficult conditions, we keep our momentum and I am buzzing for my lads as a cup win is a great feeling.
“We were unlucky to lose our two starting strikers to injury during the game and we hope they can recover quickly. Having not had a game in a few weeks the lads did well to get the result and I was very pleased with a few of the lads coming back from injury and the players that had to play out of position today, I look forward to get the boys on the training pitch so we can keep moving forward and improve this season.
“Brady are an excellent side and were extremely well drilled, I have to praise their battling spirit as they played some good football, they will take points from plenty playing as well as that.”
Ricky Rinder scored the host’s consolation goal.
SCRABBLE 1 FAITHFOLD A 7
Two goals from Lorian Madanes helped Faithfold record this emphatic win.
Player-manager Avi Markiewicz was also on target, as was David Kirzneris, Jeremy Bornstein and Eli Davila.
Markiewicz told jewishnews.co.uk: “We left a lot of the regulars at home and gave an opportunity to those who haven’t had much time and they stepped up well.
“It was a difficult pitch to play on and things got more difficult when David Lewiy went off injured on 20 minutes. Having already lost Doron Shooter to injury we were out of subs and had to play the rest of the game with 20 minutes. In he end it was a comfortable day at the office for Faithfold without being pushed too hard.”
Oli Richardson scored for Scrabble, for whom manager Ray Abrahams told jewishnews.co.uk: “We came into this game with some big defeats against us in the past few weeks and of course with Faithfold A a level higher in the Premier Division and near the top.
“Although the score doesn’t suggest it this was by far our best performance of the season and I’m so proud of my squad for the way we took the game to a top side and gave them some difficult moments in the game. We went toe-to-toe and took the game to them and to be frank we enjoyed a good deal of the possession throughout the 90 minutes. They went ahead with an unfortunate own goal and built on it but we defended very well,created a lot in midfield and created so many chances. The only difference between the sides was the clinical finishing of a Premier Division side as opposed to us but our front men really played well and on another day may have scored four or five goals with a bit better luck.
“We are in the process of rebuilding for next season but the experienced boys in the side rolled back the years with some superb displays.
“If we play like that for the rest of the season and we get our four or five long term injured players back then we can certainly get ourselves out of trouble with a few wins.
“A word for the guys who rolled back the years today superbly…Nigel Goldthorpe, Andy Miller,Serge Cowan, Alex Bourne and Jeremy King and the younger guys like Oli Richardson and Barnaby Powell who were outstanding against a top side.
“To be honest although we are now out of the Peter Morrison Cup today’s game gave us the chance of a break from the league and the boys all played with a smile on their face for the first time in a while.”
HENDON UNITED SPORTS 6 NORTH LONDON GALAXY 0
Hendon eased themselves into the next round as two goals from Dovi Fehler saw them claim a comfortable victory.
Chaim Korman, Avi Korman and Rocky Spitzer were also all on target.
Manager Jordan Sapler told jewishnews.co.uk: “We expected a tough game today, but scored 30 seconds in.
“We played some scintillating football that left Galaxy completely at sixes and sevens and unable to cope. We went in at half time 4-0 up. Dovi got his first from a Chaim cross and then Zack Lewis scores a ridiculously good finish from the edge of the box
“We completely took our foot off the gas in the second half but still had 90 percent of the ball. Dovi got his second with a good finish from 10 yards and then Avi Korman curled the ball in from the edge of the box.
“It was a very comfortable win in which we played some superb football. Galaxy are a nice team who didn’t give up but we showed that we are a different level.”
HERTSWOOD VALE 3 MILL HILL DONS 4
The Dons certainly enjoyed a slice of fortune in the cup as two own goals helped them on their way to victory.
Ryan Kramer and Zach Cohen scored its other two goals.
Dons player-manager Brandon Hamme told jewishnews.co.uk: “A great performance from the boys getting an important win to see us through to the next round. We were desperate to go on a run in the Peter Morrison and it’s great to have got off to a good start.
“We showed our tough gritty side today and worked hard to secure the win. We had several players playing in new positions due to injuries, it was extremely impressive how well they adapted to their roles. We have lacked consistency this season and we will be desperate now to put a run of results together. We now have our eyes set on next week’s game against Redbridge.”
Danny Fauer, Ben Mandel and Alex Trup scored for Vale.
HMH 6 LOS CAMDEN B 1
HMH continued its fine start to the season as two goals from Oscar Wagner helped it to this convincing win.
Alex Moss, Jonny May, Clark Norton and Jake Norton were also on target.
Manager Avi Goldberg told jewishnews.co.uk: “With many first teamers sidelined with injury or away, this could have turned into a tricky fixture but was actually a relatively straight forward win.
“We started playing our A game right from the start, were 4-0 up at half-time and then 5-0 before they pulled one back through sloppy defending. But we went straight up the other end from the restart and made it 6-1.
“It was good to see both the Norton brothers in the score sheet too and young Saul Norton banging themin for hmh U14 on pitch next door!!
“On to next week and back to the league after three straight cup wins in a row.”
JEWDINESE P OAKWOOD OLD BOYS P
OAKWOOD A 8 LONDON LIONS VETS 2
Oakwood easily brushed aside the Lions Vet team, thanks in no small part to a Josh Bharier hat-trick.
Ben Peppi, Toby Levy, Josh Cuby and Dave Woolman were also on target.
O’s manager Daniel Kristall told jewishnews.co.uk: “Tremendous performance and revenge for last years shock exit in the same round. We showed that we learned the lessons from last year.”
OAKWOOD B 2 FAIRLOP FC 3 (AET)
Fairlop fought back from going a losing position to edge this cup classic.
Brad Porter’s first ever goal for the club, coupled with strikes from Adam Goldman and Daniel Rosen saw them to the points, with manager Jake Sanders telling jewishnews.co.uk: “Another week, another Fairlop victory. Once again we were far from our best but we stuck together and came from behind to win, as we always do.
“A few special mentions today. Firstly to Brad Porter who was an absolute rock from start to finish, not to mention him notching for first for the club with an excellent volley at the back post.
“Secondly, to Daniel Rosen. He showed his character and courage to come back from a bad miss during normal time to score the winner with eight minutes to go in extra-time. Onto next week. The treble dream remains alive.
“We thought the cup was this week, but we’re hearing it’s cup again next week as we’re playing in Redbridge’s cup final.”
Jacob Richler Kleiman, on his return from two surgeries, put Oakwood ahead, before Elliot Espinoza equalised. Manager Jason Stein told jewishnews.co.uk: “Some effort today from us today. We went into the game depleted, needing to field a debutant and almost came away with a famous win.
“Before the match I asked for physicality and focus, and told the boys that against overwhelming odds you often get the best performances. That was what we got.
“We’ll rue a few chances missed at the death of extra time that could have taken the tie to penalties, but likewise Fairlop will not want to see our GK Ben Lewis again in a hurry who made some phenomenal saves.
“And while the result didn’t go our way, that was a damn good match played physically by both sides. The only shame is the Fairlop cheerleaders who just don’t give the referee a moment of peace.”

FAITHFOLD C 0 NORTH LONDON RAIDERS MASTERS 4
Raiders earned themselves three much-needed points, while at the same time, piling on the misery for the league’s bottom side.
Jonny Blain and James Cartmell scored two each for the victors. The latter told jewishnews.co.uk: “Despite the heavy rain, the pitch held up well and we play some good passing football. We were worth our 2-0 lead with goals from myself and Jonny Blain.
“Faithfold came back into the game and pushed for goals, but we held tight with keeper James Hodari making some good saves. As the game opened up, we started to dominate possession and eventually sealed the game with two well-works goals for Jonny Blain and myself (again!!)”
