Harold­eans close in on Man­ches­ter ti­tle

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DARREN WITCOOP

FOOT­BALL MIKE Bloomberg in­sists his play­ers stepped up when it mat­tered most as Harold­eans moved to within one point of win­ning the ti­tle with a 3-0 suc­cess over MJSL ri­vals

“The play­ers thor­oughly de­serve it for the at­ti­tude and ap­pli­ca­tion they’ve shown all sea­son, as well as the out­stand­ing foot­ball the team has played.”

Re­ich White direc­tor of foot­ball Mike Gast­wirth had no com­plaints and con­cedes his side’s ti­tle bid is all over.

Gast­wirth said: “It’s more or less done. We had our strong­est side out, be­sides some ab­sent stu­dents, so there’s no com­plaints. They were the bet­ter side.

“We haven’t played 11-a-side for six weeks now and that made a big dif­fer­ence. It’s not an ex­cuse, but a re­al­ity.”

Maccabi Man­ches­ter Blue main­tained their strong end-of-sea­son form with a 3-0 win over Prest­field.

Ben Gould’s brace and a Harry Mar­go­lis strike main­tained their push for the top four.

Blues boss Jonny Rose said: “I’m re­ally happy with the way we are play­ing. Ev­ery­one is pulling in the same di­rec­tion.

“A top-four fin­ish is still in our sights.”

Maccabi Man­ches­ter Yel­low staged a shock turn­around to book their place in the Shonn Tro­phy semi­fi­nals. A 3-0 sec­ond-leg win saw them over­turn the heavy deficit and progress 4-3 on ag­gre­gate over Re­ich Blue.

Harold­eans were su­pe­rior in all ar­eas of the pitch
