The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

FOOT­BALL Real Sosobad and Shacharit Donetsk are among the new teams to have joined the MGBSFL for sea­son 2014/15.

Forty clubs, one down from last sea­son, have joined the Sun­day morn­ing league, with KS Re­united, Lon­don Rovers and Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions Green also en­ter­ing the fray ahead of the big kick-off on Septem­ber 7.

League chair­man David Wolff said: “The num­bers are down from last sea­son, but they are down in terms of 11-a-side foot­ball across the coun­try. Who­ever wants to play foot­ball will play.”

Har­men have ben­e­fit­ted from Brady Mac­cabi’s demise by ac­cept­ing pro­mo­tion into the Pre­mier Divi­sion. Brix­ton Old Boys and SPEC FC were given a stay of ex­e­cu­tion in Divi­sion One to “even up the num­bers,” de­spite fin­ish­ing in the bot­tom two last sea­son.

FC Team have an­nounced a ma­jor re­struc­tur­ing, with Michael My­ers and Ben Gil­bey tak­ing over as A-team man­agers from Mitch Young.

“Hav­ing reached our goal of get­ting to the Pre­mier Divi­sion, the aim from there was to main­tain our place in the top-flight. We must now try to chal­lenge for sil­ver­ware,” said Young.
