Caro’s Col­umn

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

When I heard that Faith­fold A hard man Lee Hyams was in­volved in an in­ci­dent at the New Year sales I im­me­di­ately feared the worst. Thank­fully the de­fender’s tale did not in­volve scuf­fling at Brent Cross, but it is still some­what em­bar­rass­ing.

Hyams, whose 2007 res­o­lu­tion is to go the whole year with­out a book­ing, came a crop­per when try­ing to beat the queues at Next’s Bore­ham­wood branch. To­gether with ex­pec­tant wife Hay­ley, he ar­rived at an empty car-park in the early hours only to find they had turned up a full day be­fore the doors opened.

On Sun­day, Hyams will line up against his for­mer Chigwell team­mates when the JC MSFL re­turns to ac­tion fol­low­ing a two-week break. Match day 14 in­cludes a mix­ture of JC MSFL and Cyril Anek­stein Cup clashes.

Di­vi­sion 4 lead­ers North-West Neas­den C are hop­ing for a cup up­set against Hen­don United C, while Bafana Bafana will be look­ing to avenge a 6-1 league de­feat when they take on Di­vi­sion 1 ri­vals North-West Neas­den B.

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Lon­don Mac­cabi Li­ons A will be look­ing to pull clear at the top of the ta­ble with vic­tory over Red­bridge Jewish Care A. And the Di­vi­sion 3 top-of-the-ta­ble clash sees Red­bridge Jewish Care B travel to South Man­cu­ni­ans. Red­bridge, who boast the mean­est defence in the di­vi­sion, will have to be on their guard against the pro­lific strike force of Richard Fo­gel­man and Craig Ed­wards. The Di­vi­sion 4 game-of-the-day pits Red­bridge Jewish Care C against Lon­don Mac­cabi Li­ons C. Pro­mo­tion chas­ing Chigwell Ath­letic C will at­tempt to end AC Crick­le­wood’s 100 per cent record in Di­vi­sion 5.

It is of­fi­cial. I am old. I was in­formed by North-West Neas­den’s Masters play­er­man­ager boss Gary Sw­erner that I am now el­i­gi­ble to play in the golden oldies league as the re­sult of a new rule per­mit­ting keep­ers over 32 to play. Neas­den, Tem­ple For­tune and EDRS Stone­grove are all seek­ing to se­cure my ser­vices.

Af­ter com­ing through four months’ in­tense train­ing ahead of last year’s MDA box­ing night, JC pho­tog­ra­pher David Katz will not be au­di­tion­ing for the next se­ries of Celebrity Ice Danc­ing af­ter suf­fer­ing a heavy fall while do­ing his best Torvill and Dean im­pres­sion.
