Yel­low fever sweep­ing Mac­cabi, says Radi­ven

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN WITCOOP

FOOTBALL MAC­CABI Manch­ester Yel­low are the shock early-sea­son pace­set­ters in the MJSL.

An­tonRadi­ven’snewlyassem­bled­side main­tained their 100 per cent record thanks to a 3-2 win at sis­ter club Mac­cabi Manch­ester Blue.

The visi­tors showed their fight­ing qual­i­ties af­ter fall­ing be­hind to firsthalf goals from Jake Ad­shead and player man­ager Jonny Rose.

But the Yel­lows launched a stir­ring come­back­afterMar­cusJack­son’sdou­ble and Sammy Den­ni­son made it three out of three.

Yel­lows boss An­ton Radi­ven said: “It’s still early days and we won’t get ahead of our­selves.

“But I could not have asked more of my play­ers. We are grow­ing in con­fi­dence with ev­ery game.”

Harold­eans heroA­damBo­yarsended Leed­sMac­cabi’s per­fect start to the new sea­son.

The midfielder net­ted a de­served late lev­eller to can­cel out James Lan­des’ opener. It was no more than Harold­eans de­served as the cham­pi­ons were knocked off their perch.

Stand-in boss Fraser Sav­ille, deputis­ing for Jamie Harris, says the York­shire­men have been re­minded they will not have it all their own way this sea­son.

He said: “We prob­a­bly de­served more than a draw for the way we played.

“We would have taken the re­sult be­fore­hand as Leeds are a strong team. I think they will go on to win the league again, but other teams will push them.

“Hope­ful­ly­we­can­beo­neof them.This showed, de­spite hav­ing a smaller squad of play­ers to work with than in re­cent years, we can have a say this sea­son.”

Jonny Franks was the hat-trick hero as Heaton Park Rovers won a nine-goal thriller against South Manch­ester Sports 3rds.

Keith Her­man (2), Felix Shal­lom and Stephen Ch­ester were on tar­get for the hosts, but Franks had the fi­nal say with Joe Co­p­land and Harry Roache also chip­ping in for David Selig­man’s HPR side.
