The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BYDANNYCARO

FOOT­BALL FAITH­FOLD B’s match against Oak­wood B was aban­doned af­ter 51 min­utes when striker Ben Zloof suf­fered a bro­ken leg.

Oak­wood were lead­ing through a goal from James Abrams, but man­ager Ja­son Stein be­lieves referee Neil Cooper was right to halt pro­ceed­ings.

Stein said: “I feel very sorry for Ben who I rate hugely as a player and I know he’s a top lad as well.

“The Faith­fold team showed great dig­nity in the way they dealt with the in­jury in the af­ter­math of the aban­don­ment and they were a credit to their team­mate.

“Ob­vi­ously the foot­ball plays sec­ond fid­dle when the game ends like that and I imag­ine the league will ar­range a re­play.

“The match was played in good spir­its be­tween two com­pet­i­tive sides and it’s ob­vi­ously a hor­ri­ble in­ci­dent for all. Ev­ery­one at Oak­wood would like to wish Ben a speedy re­cov­ery.”
