Gellman calls for calm after latest win
FOOTBALL TONY Gellman’s Manchester Maccabi 1st continue to set the pace in the Accountants League Premier Division.
Gellman’s men swept past Saints 3-1 thanks to goals from Mark Maynard, Adam Stevens and Adam Jackson.
They now hold a six-point advantage at the summit but Gellman is refusing to get carried away with their lofty position.
He said: “It’s been a good start and probably better than we expected. But you can’t get giddy. We are taking it game by game and we know we face a real fight if we want to win honours.
“The boys have given their all and our work-rate is warring down the opposition. We then show some quality that is bringing us the goals.”
Manchester Maccabi 1st take a break from league action when they face Old Ball in the County Cup on Sunday.
Gellman said: “We want to win every game we play but we know that this will be a very difficult test for us.”
AFC Flixton lost ground and their 100 per cent record after falling to a shock 2-1 defeat against Lawds. South Manchester 1st edged out Mace 1-0 to remain in fourth spot.
