Hakoah twins to join Sydney FC U13s squad

HAKOAH FC proudly announced on Wednesday that four of its junior players – Clyde Allan, Pico Bangoura, Benjamin Zaidel and Jacob Zaidel – have just been signed by the Sydney FC Academy, to be part of the Sky Blues’ U13 boys’ squad in 2023.

This is a testament to Hakoah’s ongoing investment into its SAP program, where talent is continually produced. The club wishes them all well.

Two of the boys, Benjamin and Jacob, are twins, and are pictured with their dad, Dani. Well done, boys!



Great turnout for Maccabi versus Rams

THERE was a great turnout for the annual Maccabi NSW Tenpin Bowling Club versus Sydney Rams night of bowling at Manhattan Bowl in Mascot last Monday.

It was a very successful event once again – with 56 bowlers participating – and a very fun one too, with several players dressing up, with a Halloween theme.

For the record, the Rams were the overall, and well-deserved, winners, proving to be too consistent on the night, across the lanes.

Thanks go to tournament organiser Ronnie Lang, and to the Rams’ committee members, for their assistance in helping to organise prizes, the raffle, and entertainment.

Appreciation was also reserved for the staff and management at Manhattan Bowl, who do everything they can to make this event special.
