A 71st-minute header from Michael Sacks earned Wingate & Finchley a 2-2 draw against Concord Rangers in the Ryman League Division One North. The squad also featured Craig Ellis, Jake Furman and Dean Nyman. Manager Michael Stone said: “We showed a lot of resilience as a team, coming back twice. We passed the ball better in the second half and I thought the momentum really swung when we got the first equaliser. As an away team at a strong side that had made an extremely good start to the season, it is a valuable point and one that when we look back on we will realise its worth.”
Adam Stolerman scored two, including his 15th of the season, and, along with Dominic Cheniart and Nick Goodman, helped London Lions back to winning ways as they beat Bovingdon 4-1 in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division. Manager Tony Gold said: “We have shown in recent weeks that not only can we play attractive football but we can mix it up. The next month is going to test our resolve and mental strength but I have every confidence my players will rise to the challenge.”
Manchester Maccabi started their Eccles League Premier Division campaign with a comfortable win over Worsley. Having only played in cup competitions so far, David Nadler’s men looked solid, and their patient approach paid dividends with the goals coming in the second half. Leor Sidle put the hosts ahead with an excellent finish from an Adam Stevens pass. Rafi Leker and Adam Lavin completed the scoring.
