The Jewish Chronicle - - EXTRA TIME -

FAIR­LOP FC lived up to their pre-sea­son hype by win­ning the ti­tle with a game to spare.

Man­ager Aaron Dias made some bold ac­qui­si­tions when set­ting up the east Lon­don team, with for­mer Player of the Year Ryan Cole drop­ping into Di­vi­sion Two, and Red­bridge Jewish Care A marks­man Daniel Garfin­kle join­ing him for the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

Cap­tain Brad Gayer was a model of con­sis­tency, with his won­der strike against North Lon­don Raiders A win­ning the JC Goal of the Sea­son.

Young de­fender Max Freed­man was out­stand­ing in the cup win against Lions Vets. Daniel Bean and Matthew Berkley also showed their class on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Fair­lop fin­ished a mem­o­rable cam­paign with the best de­fen­sive record across the MGBSFL, con­ced­ing just eight goals in 20 matches.

A ju­bi­lant Dias com­mented: “We are de­lighted to have se­cured the ti­tle. It’s been a great first sea­son for us and we are all thrilled it has fin­ished with silverware.

“We will cer­tainly en­joy our­selves over the com­ing weeks but at­ten­tion will soon turn to next year, where we will on the hunt for more silverware.”

The goals of Golden Boot win­ner Adam El­lis en­sured long-time lead­ers Bay­ern Min­cha — an­other new team — fin­ished in sec­ond place.

Goal­keeper Joe Ny­man earned the nick­name of Neuer as he made a habit of mak­ing won­der saves.
