The win keeps the pressure on Leeds at the top and boss Daniel Rabinowitz said: “We just have to keep winning our games. I feel we are the league’s best team but we have a lot to do if we are to wrestle the championship away from Leeds.”
Veterans Mark Magid and Neil Collins rolled back the years to help South Manchester Sports 2nd earn a share of the spoils against MaccabiManchester Yellow.
With a combined age of 113, the pair were thrown into action due to a player shortage.

Manager Magid said: “We were both forced to dust off the cobwebs and turn out as we were missing so many players.
“Neil played centre-half and I played in midfield. And I have to say Neil was like a Rolls Royce in a Demolition Derby. He was cruising. It’s the first time we have played this season — and hopefully it’s the last.”
