Lions in dock after win

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL MAC­CABI Lon­don Lions have been found guilty of field­ing an in­el­i­gi­ble player in their Nathan Hor­witz Divi­sion Two Cup fi­nal against St John’s Wood Tigers.

The Lions romped to a 6-0 vic­tory to com­plete the sec­ond part of a league and cup double, but league of­fi­cials must now de­cide whether to award the match to the Tigers or or­der a re­play.

MMFL chair­man Stu­art Lustig­man said: “We have been in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter with the full co-op­er­a­tion of Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions and it ap­pears that one of their play­ers had not played the req­ui­site num­ber of matches in or­der to qual­ify to play in the fi­nal.

“The League’s man­age­ment com­mit­tee is con­sid­er­ing what ac­tion will be taken, and a fur­ther state­ment is ex­pected to be is­sued in the next few days.”

Two goals from Gideon Bar­nett and one from Ory Halperin gave Lions a com­fort­able half-time ad­van­tage.

Fur­ther goals from Michael Abra­ham and a third from Bar­nett com­pleted a com­pre­hen­sive win for Lions, who re­cently lifted the MMFL Divi­sion 2 ti­tle.

Marc Mor­ris was named man of the match.
