Adam Zaidman (NL Raiders A) – Kept a well-deserved clean sheet. Great distribution and made a great save in the first half to keep the score at 1-0

Nicky Cooper (Bayern Mincha) – Played full-back and on the wing, came on as a super sub in the second half and made all the difference helping to keep his side in the title race
Josh Wagner (Faithfold A) – Faithfold’s man-of-the-match, won all of his battles and scored a classy goal which edged him ahead of his partner Johnny Gahan
Doron Shooter (Real Hendon) – Formed an excellent partnership with Martin Smulovitch as they dealt with the Rory Delap-esque FC Team long throws
Richard Stern (Redbridge B) – Stood out at right-back for his side, solid defensively and offered a threat going forward

Jono Gaon (London Lions Blue) – Produced a tireless performance, which was rewarded with two scoring well-taken goals
Josh Wood (Hertswood Vale) – Continues to lead the side, produced an assist of the highest quality and defensively, won challenge after challenge
Louie Libbert (Oakwood B) – Recently moved down from Manchester, and fitting into his new surroundings, as put on a starring show
Josh Pugh (Scrabble) – Captain once again led the side superbly and got on the scoresheet to boot

Jake Gilbert (NL Raiders B) – His hat-trick was a lesson in finishing, but he did plenty of work off the ball for the team too, was a nightmare for the opposition right-back
Brad Wine (Oakwood A) – Was superb, leading from the front, and pulled his team through to help earn them a point

Daniel Shafron (NL Raiders A)

Nicky Cooper (Bayern Mincha)

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.
