Joe Botchin (Oakwood A) – Pulled off some brilliant saves in his side’s Cyril Anekstein Cup semi-final win

Ben Myers (Scrabble) – Had a superb game and didn’t put a foot wrong or play a bad pass in 90 minutes
James Korn (FC Team) –Strong at the heart of the Team defence, concentration slipped in five minutes of madness, but was regained to see side home
Dan Howard (Hendon United) – Hadn’t played 11-a-side in few years and played through the pain of a groin strain during the game. Showed how class is permanent on debut
Dave Esterkin (NL Raiders A) – Another first performance for the A’s in an irregular position and was superb

David Leiwy (Faithfold A) – Left his manager speechless with his performance. Got a hat-trick, an assist and was simply unplayable
James Gold (Maccabi London Lions White) – Was threatening throughout the 90 minutes, and claimed a couple of assists
Robert Samuelson (North London Raiders C) – Marshalled the midfield extremely well, broke up the opposition play with ease
Dave Kizneris (Faithfold A) – Only on for 45 minutes, but made such a difference. Scored one, assisted one and had the beating of his man every time

Simon Moses (Los Blancos) – Led side superbly from the front, scored twice to see his side to victory
Rupert Wood (Scrabble) – Enjoyed his best game to date for the club with his powerful running and tackling, and weighed in with the opening two goals

Avi Markiewicz (Faithfold A)

Joe Botchin (Oakwood A)

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
