Fairlop raid Redbridge for star performer Cole
MGBSFL NEW boys Fairlop have pulled off a major coup after Player of the Year Ryan Cole agreed to join them from Redbridge Jewish Care A.
Left-back Cole was voted the standout performer in a season where RJC A finished runners-up in both the Premier Division and Cyril Anekstein Cup competitions.
Cole said: “I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my career.”
Fairlop boss Aaron Dias has shown great ambition, also bringing RJC stars Daryl Rubin, Matt Berkley, Kane Hopps, Brad Gayer, Adam Goldman and Daniel Bean to the club from their local rivals.
Dias is delighted with his summer dealings so far and commented: “We have got a great squad. The boys can’t wait for the season to start.
“Pre-season has gone well and everyone is looking sharp.
“We aren’t just here for promotion, we want to be fighting for the title.”
Meanwhile, Temple Fortune A beat Catford & Bromley Maccabi 2-1 in their first pre-season friendly. Jordan Sharifian, last season’s top-scorer who finished second in the race for the MGBSFL Golden Boot, scored both their goals.
The MGBSFL will feature 29 teams for season 2017/18 and gets under way on September 3.
