MJSL’s moment of truth
FOOTBALL MIKE Bloomberg is taking nothing for granted ahead of Haroldeans’s MJSL title showdown against Reich Insurance White.
The two sides meet on Sunday with Reich White knowing anything but a win will effectively end their chances of overhauling the Merseysiders.
Table-topping Haroldeans, who are chasing the treble, are in pole position, but boss Bloomberg insists they will take it one match at a time.
He said: “We’ve set the pace for most of the season but it will count for nothing unless we finish it off.
“We know how much at stake. It’s a crucial time for us.
“I’ve been lucky to inherit a hungry and talented squad. They have made my job easy.”
Bloomberg paid tribute to top-scorer Adam Shiffman and said: “He has been a different class but it’s not just down to him.
“It’s been a collective effort from a group of determined players.”
Reich White have been on the coattails of Haroldeans all season but director of football, Mike Gastwirth, admits Sunday is a must-win for his team.
“We’ve let ourselves down at various times this season,” said Gastwirth.
“Now it’s time for us to stand up and show what we are capable of.
“We have all put in so much this season and we want to be rewarded.”
