The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO

PETER MOR­RI­SON Tro­phy hold­ers Manch­ester Mac­cabi 1st marched into the quar­ter-fi­nals af­ter mauling Lon­don Mac­cabi Li­ons C 10-1 with hat-tricks from Adam Lavin, Leon Huller and Adam Stevens. Bobby Cousins com­pleted the rout.

A tre­ble from FC Team A play­er­man­ager Mitchell Young put the Di­vi­sion 5 out­siders into the last eight in their first sea­son.

They came back from a goal down to beat South­gate Har­men B 4-2. Andy Sheena also net­ted. Si­mon White (2) reg­is­tered for Har­men.

“We showed the FC Team spirit to come from be­hind and win,” com­mented FC Team cap­tain Gideon Moss. “We dom­i­nated the game from start to fin­ish and thor­oughly de­served the vic­tory.”

Look­ing ahead to the quar­ter-fi­nal clash against for­mer win­ners Faith­fold, he added: “We are now ea­gerly an­tic­i­pat­ing a tie against the elite of Jewish foot­ball.”

Lee Bib­ring smashed six of the best as 2005 win­ners Lon­don Mac­cabi Li­ons A thumped pre­mier di­vi­sion ri­vals North Lon­don Raiders A 9-0. Max Field­grass and the ever­green Tony Gold fin­ished the job.

Li­ons joint-man­ager Ben Win­ston said: “It was an ex­cel­lent dis­play against a de­cent pre­mier side, who kept go­ing un­til the end.

“Full credit to them but we were re­ally fan­tas­tic at times and scored some won­der­ful goals. Lee Bib­ring and Max Field­grass in par­tic­u­lar were mag­nif­i­cent.”

A five-goal salvo from Daryl Phillips helped for­mer win­ners Faith­fold A to an 8-0 de­mo­li­tion of MJSL out­fit BJ WAM. Fur­ther strikes from Andrew Wolfin, Adam Phillips and Paul Sham­plina helped the greens march on.

Nine-man Chigwell Ath­letic A recorded a 3-2 vic­tory over Leeds Mac­cabi.

Adam Hakimi, Paul Lench­ner and Michael Witzen­feld net­ted in a game that saw Craig Sandford dis­missed for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week and sub­sti­tute Dar­ren Mor­ris who col­lected two book­ings in the space of five min­utes af­ter re­plac­ing Rus­sell Brill.

Goals from Michael Fil­son, Toby Levy and Lawrence New­man helped South Manch­ester Mac­cabi 1st over­come Hill­gar Ath­letic 3-1.

Else­where, an ex­tra-time strike from Saul Con­way booked Oak­wood EDRS A into the semi-fi­nals of the Mid­dle­sex FA Sun­day Ju­nior County Cup as they de­feated Rayn­ers Lane 2001 FC.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion for the first time, Jamie Kent gave the JC MSFL side an early lead.

The vis­i­tors equalised in the sec­ond half but Con­way, to­gether with the hero­ics of keeper Andy Em­den set up a semi-fi­nal at home to Broad­way Celtic on Fe­bru­ary 11.
