The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN WIT­COOP

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.

Manch­esterMac­cabi2nds stunned high-fly­ing Deloitte 4-1 in Divi­sion One. Joe Lewis, Daniel Rubenstein, Olly Abra­ham­son and Jor­dan Kay were on tar­get.
