The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN WIT­COOP


FOOT­BALL HAROLD­EANS re­main on course for a po­ten­tial tre­ble af­ter book­ing their place in the fi­nal of the Harold Feld­man Tro­phy.

The Merseysiders routed Re­ich In­surance Blue 8-0 in what boss Mike Bloomberg de­scribed as “the most com­plete per­for­mance” of his ten­ure.

Harold­eans – who are in MJSL ti­tle con­tention and the Shonn Tro­phy quar­ter-fi­nals next month – will play Leeds Mac­cabi in the Feld­man fi­nal.

Their semi-fi­nal win never looked in doubt af­ter Adam Shiff­man fired a hat­trick. Max Green, Jack Bookey, Bobby Fishel and Adam Bo­yars also reg­is­tered to en­sure it would be a smooth pas­sage.

Harold­eans boss Bloom­field said: “In all my years in­volved with the club, this was one of the most com­plete per­for­mances. We were so dom­i­nant and ruth­less in front of goal.

“The at­ti­tude and com­mit­ment of the play­ers was first-class. We now face a tough ex­am­i­na­tion against Leeds.”

Leeds had to work some­what harder in their last-four tie with Mac­cabi Manch­ester Yel­low, af­ter sur­viv­ing a sec­ond­half fight­back to squeeze through 3-2.

Louie Hew­son’s brace and Alis­tair Landy had Leeds cruis­ing be­fore the home side re­sponded via Rafi Dines and Aaron Eng­lan­der.

But Leeds clung on and boss Adam Kristall said: “It’s a great achieve­ment for us to be in the fi­nal. We want to end the sea­son with sil­ver­ware and this gives us the op­por­tu­nity to do so.”

Michael Gaswirth is back­ing his Re­ich In­surance Rangers White side to throw the MJSL ti­tle race wide open.

Yossi Mann, Simeon Good­man, Dan Van­der­molen and Ova­dia Klyne helped them crush South Manch­ester 4-0.

Gast­wirth said: “Ev­ery­one seems to think it’s done and dusted. But we don’t think so. There’s no chance we will just hand over the tro­phy to Harold­eans.”
