MSFL given green light

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

THE long-term fu­ture of Jewish foot­ball is safe af­ter a meet­ing be­tween rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the JC MSFL, Mac­cabi GB, the Lon­don FA and the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion to dis­cuss the ethics of a league that op­er­ates an exclusive pol­icy.

Or­gan­ised via an in­vi­ta­tion from the FA, the LFA ex­plained that sev­eral such leagues op­er­ate in Lon­don and that the pol­icy to in­clude them means that they do not op­er­ate out­side the frame­work of foot­ball un­der the aus­pices of the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Mac­cabi League chair­man David Wolff said: “We ex­plained our po­si­tion and how the league was born as a com­mu­nal ac­tiv­ity in the early 1950’s, and that its pur­pose is rel­e­vant to­day.

“The FA ac­cepted th­ese rea­sons and ac­cepted that we were op­er­at­ing within the laws of the land and that they would seek no fur­ther meet­ings with us on this sub­ject.”
