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.
Fortunately his camera escaped scratch free! See Danny Caro’s weekend round-up on
