Ice-cool Chig­well power on

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL Richard Slater in­sists Chig­well Ath­letic’s proud penalty prow­ess will stand them in good stead to re­tain the Henry Sw­erner MMFL Cup af­ter they elim­i­nated arch ri­vals North Lon­don Raiders.

James Cart­mell’s opener for NLR was can­celled out by a penalty from Adam Stol­er­man. Raiders re­stored their ad­van­tage through Lee Cash but a won­der­ful fin­ish from Robert Donn took the tie to penal­ties.

Chig­well con­verted all four spot­kicks, with Stol­er­man, Alex Le­vack, Rus­sell Brill and Glenn Davis suc­cess­ful and they pro­gressed af­ter Alex Bourne and Cash missed for Raiders.

Chig­well boss Slater said: “This was an­other close game with our ri­vals, it could have gone ei­ther way.

“It was great to see us over­turn a deficit twice. Ev­ery­one was bril­liant to­day.

“Once it went to penal­ties I was never in doubt. I knew we had the bet­ter penalty-tak­ers and was proven right.

“We are the cup hold­ers and I’m de­lighted to be in the next round.”

Mac­cabi Lon­don Li­ons B have re­tained the Mac­cabi Masters League Di­vi­sion Two ti­tle fol­low­ing a 3-1 suc­cess over Glen­thorne.

The east Lon­don­ers forged ahead via an own goal, but Michael Abra­ham, Peter Joffe and Ory Halperin struck in the sec­ond half as Li­ons se­cured a de­ci­sive vic­tory.
