Newboys prepare for season
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.
