The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

FOOT­BALL RAY Abra­hams breathed a sigh of re­lief af­ter Scrabble FC won their first cup game of the sea­son with a re­sound­ing 6-0 vic­tory over Petts Wood.

Hav­ing been elim­i­nated from the Pe­ter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy and Cyril Anek­stein Cup, Abra­hams was de­ter­mined to make a win­ning start in the Lon­don FA Sun­day Ju­nior Cup, and his play­ers did not let him down against op­po­nents from the Metropoli­tan Sun­day Foot­ball League.

First-half strikes from Adam Pearl­man and Zak McLeod put Scrabble in charge. McLeod added a third af­ter 60 min­utes be­fore Danny Sher­man scored the goal of the game to make it four.

Pearl­man com­pleted his tre­ble with two well-taken fin­ishes to set up a sec­ond-round trip to Beck­en­ham Rovers.

Abra­hams said: “This was our last chance to progress in a cup com­pe­ti­tion this sea­son and the guys were bril­liant.

“Our build-up play was first-class, with some good as­sists, and we were very clin­i­cal in front of goal.”
