Isaacs keeps Norstar’s dream alive
A late strike from supersub Sam Isaacs helped Norstar A keep alive their promotion hopes following a nail-biting 4-3 victory over Woodford Wanderers in Division One.
The signs looked ominous for Norstar as goals from Woodford’s Mitch Hahn, Darryl Green and Harrison Midda left their promotion dreams in tatters, but they hit back in style with Simon Perlmutter, Josh Pistol and Jeremy Elster boosting their chances of taking the runners-up spot.
Peters was understandably pleased with the result: “What a great way to end a fantastic season,” he said. “Whether we finish second or third we’ve had a great time, played some awesome football and shown we’ve got the quality to match any team in the division – having done the double over champions Oakwood.
Now Peters must wait to see the outcome of Sunday’s clash between Brixton A and Redbridge B. A draw would mean that Norstar go up. However, victory for Brixton would see them snatch second place. He said: “If Redbridge can do us a favour we’ll help fund their end-ofseason party.”
Faithfold manager Zuriel Solomon believes his team can challenge for silverware next season after they ended Redbridge Jewish Care A’s hopes of retaining the title with a 4-2 victory.
Strikes from captain Alex Levack, Daryl Phillips, Simon Lawrence and Alex Kaye lifted the Superhoops into fourth position. Daniel Orgel and Steve Summers replied for RJC.
Solomon said: “I was really pleased with the performance. Everyone worked hard and it bodes well for next season.”
