Jordi on song as Camden register fourth victory
FOOTBALL STIRLING Kay believes Camden Park are heading in the right direction following a 3-2 win over FC Team A in the MGBSFL Premier Division.
Strikes from David Kanzen, Mike Khalatschi and Johann Jordi secured Camden’s fourth win of the season, with Adam Rones and Eddie Sternberg replying for FC Team.
Camden boss Kay said: “This win shows the improvement the squad has made over the last two months, the willingness to keep going and not give in.”
Sam Rank admitted Redbridge Jewish Care B were far from their best despite registering a 3-0 triumph over Finchley City. Kane Hopps (2) and Sam Moss earned the Division One champions a 3-0 success.
Rank said: “This was probably the worst performance of the season, but to still win 3-0 says a lot about how far they have come this season.”
Sam Deaner (2) and Rob Rodney helped Athletic Bilbaum record the result of the day as they beat North London Raiders B 3-2. Bilbaum’s Eli Gottlieb remarked: “It was a comprehensive performance, deserved victory and shows what we are capable of.”
Alex Elf and an own goal accounted for the NLR strikes in a game described by manager Jonny Adelman as “comprehensively the most insipid performance of this or perhaps any season”. Adelman went on to say: “Despite a bizarre decision to award Bilbaum a penalty for the winning goal, we got exactly the result we deserved.”
Real Hendon finished the weekend in fifth position after crushing Boca Jewniors 7-0. Gav Noe (2) led the procession, with further goals from Benny Goldberg, Benni Sluckis, Gilad Kestenbaum, Lollu Hibbert and joint-player-manager Chaim Gothold sealing the points.
Jez Hammond was RC UK FC’s twogoal hero as they exacted revenge on Catford & Bromley Maccabi, running out 7-2 winners.
Zalmy Cohen, Akiva Solomon and David Brown completed the scoring for the new boys.
Eight teams will battle it out for glory in the MMFL/MGBSFL Invitation Trophy, which gets under way this weekend.
Division Two champions L’Equipe will line up alongside three other sides from the Maccabi League, while newly-crowned champions North London Raiders, Brady Maccabi, EDRS Stonegrove and Scrabble will be representing the Maccabi Masters League.
The four MMFL teams will be looking to benefit from home advantage in the quarter-finals, with ties going straight to penalties if level after normal time.
The semi-finals are scheduled to take place on May 14, with the final at week later at Silver Jubilee Park.
NLR Masters will look to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat against Maccabi London Lions A in last weekend’s MMFL Division One clash.
Gideon Barnett and Paul Lenchner scored for the Lions, with Alex Bourne replying.
