The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO

DAVID Gar­bacz has thrown down the gaunt­let to Hen­don United’s ti­tle ri­vals ahead of a su­per Sun­day show­down in­volv­ing the MGBSFL’s top teams.

Sec­ond-placed Hen­don visit third­placed Red­bridge Jewish Care, while lead­ers Oak­wood A travel to de­fend­ing champions North Lon­don Raiders.

Hen­don re­turned to win­ning ways with top-scorer Zac Lewis and Moses Seitler help­ing them close the gap on Oak­wood to one point with a 2-0 win over Brady Mac­cabi.

Gar­bacz said: “We knew noth­ing less than three points would do and over­all we were more than happy with the win.

“With­out kick­ing a ball, Oak­wood have seen a seven-point lead re­duced to just one and any one of three teams can find them­selves as ti­tle favourites af­ter Sun­day’s games de­pend­ing on the re­sults.

“It prom­ises to be an ex­cit­ing buildup – we have a few walk­ing in­jured at the mo­ment so the treat­ment room will be busy this week in a des­per­ate at­tempt to get peo­ple fit.”

Red­bridge reg­is­tered the perfect 10 as they de­stroyed FC Team A 10-1.

James Berkley(2), Nathan Sol­losi (2), Dean Ny­man (2), Matt Berkley, Zack Neiman, Daniel Garfin­kle and Sam Sol­losi eased them to vic­tory.

Look­ing ahead to the Hen­don game, Red­bridge’s Jon Ja­cobs said: “Rus­sell Gold­stein re­turns for Sun­day’s must­win game. The squad will be at full­strength and full of swag­ger.

“There is an em­bar­rass­ment of riches in the at­tack­ing po­si­tions which is so ex­cit­ing to see and a very solid back four to keep things tight, so for once I have a nice se­lec­tion headache.”

Ricky Lawrence re­flected on a “great team per­for­mance” as SPEC FC held in-form Lions A 1-1. SPEC’s Ben Kaye and Adam Arnold of Lions ex­changed strikes.

Lawrence com­mented: “We’ve been on the re­ceiv­ing end of some bad re­sults in re­cent weeks, so to de­fend like we did against a tal­ented Lions side was bril­liant.”

Stir­ling Kay guided Cam­den Park to a bat­tling 2-2 draw in his first game as their new man­ager fol­low­ing goals from Dan Baneth and David Kha­latschi.
