FOOT­BALL IN BRIEF

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CHELSEA BOSS Avram Grant has scotched re­ports that Is­rael de­fender Tal Ben Haim will join New­cas­tle United in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow. “Tal started the sea­son well,” said Grant, “and then did not play so much but is now back in the first team. I think he has played as much as any de­fender at Chelsea this sea­son. He knows that Chelsea have a large squad and a lot of ro­ta­tion be­fore he joined the club. He is an in­te­gral part of our squad.” JOE JA­COB­SON helped keep alive Bris­tol Rovers’ FA Cup dream by scor­ing a penalty in the shootout in Tues­day night’s first round re­play win over Ley­ton Ori­ent. LE­ICES­TER CITY are be­lieved to be pre­par­ing an of­fer for Mac­cabi Ne­tanya mid­fielder Tamir Co­hen, the son of for­mer Liver­pool star Avi Co­hen. SAM SLOMA bagged a brace as Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge cruised into the quar­ter-fi­nals of the Es­sex Se­nior Cup with a 3-0 vic­tory over Brent­wood Town. GOALS FROM Adam Stol­er­man (2) and Zak White came in vain as hold­ers Lon­don Li­ons crashed out of the Herts Se­nior Cen­te­nary Cup at the first hur­dle with a calami­tous 5-3 de­feat against Kneb­worth. BRADY MAC­CABI claimed a win and a draw from a dou­ble-header against Pin­ner Pu­mas. Two goals from Rob­bie Met­zgher helped them come from be­hind to draw 22 in match one. Max Klass, Met­zgher and Adam Botkai helped them win the sec­ond en­counter 3-0. MAX DEM­BINA and an own goal helped Brady Mac­cabi beat St. Al­bans Rangers 2-0 in the Wat­ford Friendly League Un­der 10 Di­vi­sion.
