Red-hot Ny­man scores six goals to send Red­bridge Jewish Care back to the top

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO


FOOT­BALL SAM Rank saluted six-goal hero Dean Ny­man af­ter the ex­pe­ri­enced striker pro­pelled Red­bridge Jewish Care back to the top fol­low­ing a 9-0 de­mo­li­tion of Bay­ern Min­cha.

Play­ing in his sec­ond game since re­turn­ing from a lengthy sab­bat­i­cal, Ny­man gave Red­bridge the per­fect start to 2019 with six of the best.

“Deano came back to make head­lines and this will be the first of many,” en­thused RJC joint-man­ager Rank.

“A lot of play­ers would’ve watched Alan Shearer, Gabriel Batis­tuta and Gary Linker when they were younger, and watched ex­hi­bi­tions of their fin­ish­ing. Watch­ing Dean Ny­man is no dif­fer­ent. He’s a top-class per­former.”

Red­bridge went into the game un­beaten in 10 league matches and they re­turned from the three-week win­ter break in con­fi­dent mood.

Ny­man linked up in a three­p­ronged at­tack, along­side top­scorer Nate Kashket and Steve Sum­mers, and be­tween them they blew Bay­ern away.

It took the vis­i­tors only 13 min­utes to open the scor­ing, neat holdup play from Sum­mers saw him set up Ny­man who pro­duced an em­phatic fin­ish from 18 yards.

RJC dou­bled their lead on the half hour mark when a fan­tas­tic counter-at­tack, which was started and fin­ished by James Berkley, fol­low­ing great work from Kashket, Ny­man and Sum­mers.

Kashket fired his 17th goal of the sea­son five min­utes be­fore the in­ter­val to make it 3-0, but the best was yet to come.

Red­bridge scored six more goals in the sec­ond half, with Kashket scor­ing his sec­ond. But it was Ny­man who had the fi­nal say, scor­ing five times in the fi­nal 30 min­utes.

RJC joint-man­ager Sam Rank said: “The most en­cour­ag­ing thing is we can still play bet­ter. We hadn’t trained for four weeks and, at times, it was ev­i­dent.”

Ti­tle ri­vals Fair­lop FC, who are also un­beaten, are RJC’s next op­po­nents, and Rank said: “I could not have asked for a bet­ter re­sult ahead of the crunch clash.

“Now it’s time to get back to the train­ing ground and pre­pare to beat Fair­lop.

“A big crowd is ex­pected and they’re in for a cracker.”


Ra­zor sharp: Dean Ny­man scored five of his six goals in the fi­nal 30 min­utes to in­spire RJC to their sec­ond big­gest win of the sea­son
