Ram­pant Levy de­stroys HPR

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN WITCOOP

FOOT­BALL MARC Magid praised four-goal hero Toby Levy for heap­ing fur­ther mis­ery on strug­gling Heaton Park Rovers in the MJSL.

It has been a sea­son to forget for HPR and things did not get any bet­ter in their first out­ing of 2016.

They had Levy to thank for that and South Manch­ester Sports 2nd boss Magid said: “Toby tipped an even game in our bal­ance. His fin­ish­ing was su­perb and HPR couldn’t han­dle him.

“It was a game played in poor con­di­tions on a muddy pitch with pud­dles. But we had to get on with it once we both de­cided to play.

“It was the same for both sides and we might have adapted slightly bet­ter.”

The game was evenly bal­anced at 2-2 at half-time. Alex Swift and Joe Copeland had struck for the hosts with Levy

net­ting a brace. But Levy took over af­ter go­ing on to score two more with Max Her­man also find­ing the net.

Magid added: “We fin­ished fourth last sea­son and we would be happy for a re­peat of that.”

Leeds Mac­cabi be­gan the new year just how they ended 2015 — by crush­ing their ri­vals. The de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons put on an­other five-star dis­play as Nick Vale helped him­self to a hat-trick.

John Saffman also net­ted a brace with Michael Freed­man scor­ing a con­so­la­tion for a de­pleted Re­ich In­sur­ance Rangers.

Re­ich’s di­rec­tor of foot­ball Michael Gaswirth said: “We came up against a very strong Leeds team but the score­line didn’t re­flect our per­for­mance. We were down on num­bers but put up a real fight.

“We are dis­ap­pointed to be in midtable but it’s about us get­ting some con­sis­tency now to move up.”
