Rep team out of luck

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY JC SPORTS RE­PORTER

FOOT­BALL THE JC MSFL rep team bowed out of the Lon­don In­ter-League Cup in cruel fash­ion when they were de­nied a place in the fi­nal due to a one­goal in­fe­rior goal dif­fer­ence.

Jonathan Kesten­baum’s troops were un­beaten in the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter claim­ing a win and two draws, but hav­ing fin­ish­ing their group they were elim­i­nated af­ter the Wool­wich & Eltham League pipped them to the post af­ter fin­ish­ing 2-2 against the Lon­don & Kent Border League.

Kesten­baum said: “The sit­u­a­tion is heart­break­ing. We fin­ished joint-top with the same num­ber of points, same goal dif­fer­ence, same head to head - and yet Wool­wich went through be­cause even though we had the same goal dif­fer­ence, they scored one goal more.

“How­ever, to have fin­ished joint top and be un­beaten is an un­usual achieve­ment and I think the team can be proud of this year’s ef­fort. But there is much to build on and they will come back stronger next sea­son.”
