Jacobs: March will make or break Lions


FOOTBALL DAN Jacobs has challenged his Maccabi London Lions team to overcome injuries and availabili­ty issues if they are to win the Garston Vets League.

Hat-tricks from Saul Conway and Lee Cash helped the Lions return to winning ways as they destroyed Walthamsto­w 11-0.

Conway’s first-half treble laid the foundation­s, with Tony Gold adding the fourth. Super-sub Paul Hakim helped himself to two more, with further strikes from Max Radford and Mike Pearson adding the gloss. Cash added to his first-half strike with two more in the second period.

Lions could even afford to miss two penalties, with Alex Levack and Hadley Silver denied by the Walthamsto­w goalkeeper.

MLL boss Dan Jacobs said: “Tough tests await the Lions throughout March. With injuries and non-availabili­ty, how the group handle this will go a long way to determinin­g if they’ll be in the shake-up for league and cup honours come the end of the season.”
