PETER MOR­RI­SON TRO­PHY SEMI-FI­NAL MACCABI LON­DON LI­ONS UN­DER-21 0 SOUTH MAN­CHES­TER SC 1ST 3

FOOT­BALL NEIL Collins praised his team’s char­ac­ter af­ter South Man­ches­ter reached the fi­nal of the Peter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy with a 3-0 suc­cess over the youngest team in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Hav­ing beaten dou­ble hope­fuls Red­bridge A in the pre­vi­ous round, South re­turned to Lon­don with one thing on their minds, reach­ing the fi­nal.

The visi­tors made their in­ten­tions clear from the first whis­tle, with Saul Shapiro’s dou­ble putting them in charge. And a sec­ond-half strike from Toby Levy means they will have home ad­van­tage in the fi­nal next month.

South man­ager Collins said: “To come to Lon­don twice and win is a huge achieve­ment and shows the char­ac­ter of the boys.

“The team-talk be­fore the game and at half-time was easy, we didn’t need any more mo­ti­va­tion — we were in a good place.

“Thanks to Li­ons for the hos­pi­tal­ity and the un­der-21s were a credit to the club.”

South Man­ches­ter await the win­ners of this week­end’s semi-fi­nal be­tween Maccabi Lon­don Li­ons Masters and cur­rent MGBSFL cham­pi­ons North Lon­don Raiders A.
