For­tune’s six ap­peal

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

A hat-trick from Robert Botkai helped Tem­ple For­tune Old Boys win the Ralph Ep­stein Me­mo­rial Tro­phy for the 13th time by de­feat­ing Bushey Old Boys at Hilling­don Bor­ough.

Bushey started the brighter side and went for­ward from the start. Af­ter only two min­utes, a fine move re­sulted in Dar­ren Coombe cross­ing the ball from the left wing for Alan David­off to fire home past Serge Wein­berger from close range.

Steve Feiger put For­tune back on level terms on 11 min­utes fol­low­ing a swift pass­ing move.

For­tune took the lead on the stroke of half time when Feiger’s up and un­der struck the cross­bar and re­bounded to the feet of sub­sti­tute Botkai who tapped home.

Moroc­can Yali Mamouri opened up a two-goal lead with a strike early in the sec­ond half be­fore Jeremy Fess made it 4-1 from close range.

Bushey con­tin­ued to bat­tle with Coombe smash­ing an ef­fort against the un­der­side of the bar. Then Dave Sum­mer, mak­ing his 200th ap­pear­ance for For­tune, was ad­judged to have han­dled inside the area, but Bushey cap­tain Steve Lewis failed to con­vert.

Botkai scored twice in the clos­ing stages with his third com­ing from 30 yards.
