The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL ELAN Ovits praised his play­ers af­ter NL Raiders were crowned cham­pi­ons of the Mac­cabi Mas­ters League Divi­sion One.

Chig­well Ath­letic’s 3-1 de­feat against Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions en­sured Raiders se­cured the ti­tle.

“The lads have con­sis­tently played fan­tas­tic foot­ball and over­come any chal­lenge that has been thrown at them. We re­main un­beaten with a cou­ple of games to go and de­serve to be cham­pi­ons.

“Hav­ing been NLR man­ager for three out of the last four sea­sons, and won the league on ev­ery oc­ca­sion, I’ve had the for­tune of hav­ing a great squad of play­ers to se­lect from.

“This is mainly down to the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of my as­sis­tant­man­ager, Gavin Hodes, who I would like to ded­i­cate win­ning this league ti­tle to on be­half of the club.”

For­mer Chig­well play­ers Paul Lenchne and Hadley Sil­ver, along with Danny Gor­don, reg­is­tered for Lions. Steve Sum­mers replied for Chig­well and boss Richard Slater con­ceded Raiders “de­served the ti­tle”.
