Dean Caplin (Oakwood B) – A clean sheet, which came as a result of him producing a few decent saves when the game was still in the balance

Ryan Cole (Fairlop FC) – Defensively as solid as you get, nothing got past him and he was spotted on numerous occasions motoring down left wing
Ben Lauffer (Hendon United) – Returned to the team and showed all his class. Great on the ball, reads the game so well and along with Greg Corin, gave Brady no chances
Joel Barnett (Los Blancos) – Player-manager was first to every 50/50 and possessed an aura of calmness to Blancos which allowed them to win the tie
Ben Kon (Hendon United) – Didn’t put a foot wrong. A fantastically gifted player, manager says it’s “a pleasure to see him back playing for Hendon”

Matt Berkeley (Fairlop FC) – Absolutely magnificent throughout. Skilful throughout, was a bag of tricks throughout and a joy to watch
Joe Metliss (Real Hendon) – Stole the show for the Bees, controlled the game and was integral in their win
Ben Winters (Maccabi London Lions Blue) – Gave another tireless performance and rewarded by scoring an absolute worldie to tie the game 2-2 with ten minutes to play
Dan Ash (Oakwood B) – Described as being sensational on the right wing, knocked the ball about really well, beat his winger repeatedly and missed his customary chances

Oli Sade (Los Blancos) – His trickery, finishing and tireless running tied the Raiders back line in knots, was simply unplayable today and scored a Messi-esque goal!
Sam Hammerton (Maccabi London Lions White) – Superb performance up front, which was deservedly capped off by a goal

Joel Barnett (Los Blancos)

Ben Lauffer (Hendon United)

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.
