Isaacs keeps Norstar’s dream alive

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BYDANNYCARO

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.”

Brady Mac­cabi A warmed-up for Sun­day’s JC Cyril Anek­stein Cup final with a 1-1 draw against FC Team A. Josh Hershman struck for Brady with FC Team’s goal com­ing through James Korn.

A strike from Ben David could not save Faithfold C from rel­e­ga­tion as they drew 1-1 against London Mac­cabi

in Di­vi­sion Two. Jonny Cut­ter replied.

Craig Sand­ford boosted his hopes of win­ning the JC MSFL Golden Boot with both goals as newly-crowned cham­pi­ons over­came
