MON­TANA MIR­A­CLE

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

Mon­tana Boca United A were con­firmed as Di­vi­sion One run­ner­sup af­ter Neas­den B failed to beat Faith­fold B. Writ­ten off by many at the start of the sea­son, the club fin­ished three points clear of Neas­den fol­low­ing their 3-2 vic­tory over Hen­don United B a fort­night ago. They are rel­ish­ing their first sea­son in the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion af­ter join­ing Glen­thorne United as the pro­moted teams. Man­ager Marc Zied­man con­firmed that he “will be look­ing to make a few key ac­qui­si­tions for next sea­son, ideally with Premiership ex­pe­ri­ence to sup­ple­ment the hand­ful of play­ers al­ready in the squad who have played at the top tier in Jewish foot­ball”. Look­ing back on a mem­o­rable sea­son, Mon­tana press of­fi­cer Nick Good­maker said: “This is just re­ward for ev­ery­one in­volved with the club.

“The First Di­vi­sion has been a fan­tas­tic ad­vert for the JC MSFL this sea­son with pro­mo­tion and rel­e­ga­tion is­sues lit­er­ally com­ing down to the last kick of the sea­son.

“Man­ager Marc Zied­man takes the ma­jor­ity of the credit, along with chair­man Ray­mond Har­rod, for tak­ing a squad tipped for rel­e­ga­tion into the big time for the first time in the club’s his­tory. Marc is Mon­tana through and through and this achieve­ment is tes­ta­ment to his hard work and com­mit­ment.

“We know it will be tough next sea­son but the team spirit, de­ter­mi­na­tion and qual­ity of this squad gives us ev­ery rea­son to be op­ti­mistic.”
