Russell Bernstein

League Secretary

Russell Bernstein

Russell joined the MJSL in 2017 but is definitely no stranger, the elder playing fraternity will remember him as prolific goalscorer and managing JLB Spartak in the 70/80s, a true community man with community spirit who filled the League Secretary role vacated by Paul Rose. Watch this space closely as Mr Bernstein will definitely to continue to make his mark!

Stuart Kay

Honorary Treasurer

Stuart Kay

Elected at 2014-15 AGM as Treasurer, stepped into the breach as Dave Basger hung up his financial boots after 11 years. "Sam" as sometimes called has definitely got to grips with the inner sanctum of the MJSL purse strings. No more cheques if we can help it as Stuart has brought in no nonsense payment terms with a wealth of footballing knowledge and experience. 

Registrations & Results Secretary and Rep Team Co-Manager

Andrew Hatton

Andy was co-opted 5 seasons ago to provide essential IT skills as well as be the recipient of all incoming scores. Since then has become Registration Secretary, some might say poacher turned game keeper! Recently installed at Old Trafford after the club clearly identified his MJSL skill set. Nowadays, website and Whole Game management is easier, and previously joint leadership of the Rep Team, so Mr H knows what its like on the street...

Daniel Feldman

Honorary Referees Secretary

Daniel Feldman

In 2014-15, Dan hit the ground running following in the footsteps of many a Feldman. Uncle Stan a Life Vice-President with dad Mel a previous Registration/Ref Secretary. Daniel’s no nonsense approach will continue to provide officials that are in the majority of cases, developing as well as extolling the virtues of Respect and the Sin Bin initiative. Experienced a playing career ending broken ankle in first season on the Committee but his refereeing exploits continue as well as men in black appointments with an eye of National Trophy officials management. Now a manager of one of our teams...

Ian Selwyn

National Comp & Rep Team Co-Manager

Ian Selwyn

After a successful 6 seasons on the Exec, our Yorkshireman over the county line will continue to be a great asset and add value to the MJSL. Ian will be in direct communication with Maccabi GB in London and all northern teams in the Peter Morrison Trophy. Added to the portfolio and more significantly over the last 4 years, has been the MJSL Representative Team which has taken many hours of effort and commitment to achieve a National Quarter Finalist place a few seasons ago. In recent years the success achieved by Leeds Maccabi was as a result of Ian’s commitment to the MJSL cause.

Mark Mann

League Welfare Officer

Mark Mann

A first ever MJSL Player Rep on the League Management Committee, Mark is the League Welfare Officer also and provides that important communication channel for the playing community, initially a two season tenure with a view to joining the LMC in a permanent role and allow succession planning to follow in the Rep role. League Welfare Officer, always interesting and challenging position for all !

Tony Sheldon

Life Vice President

Tony Sheldon

Uncle Tony has been part of the MJSL journey for SIXTY YEARS PLUS so he has seen everything! Occupied many of the roles including various tenures as Chairman, his knowledge and experience almost surprisingly are invaluable in times of need. Internet and emails have yet to reach his part of the galaxy and some of us still wonder how the MJSL survived back in the day! Honorary Life Vice President and holder of MFA Gold Award, Tony always has an eye for the ladies but not necessarily an email! Recently 80 years young...

David Adams

Life Vice President

David Adams

David has been with the Exec for over 50 years, just after Brian got his wings. A referee for many years with a huge interest in the fledgling Junior leagues plus a County Gold Award holder. Dave has embraced technology more than Tony, except it just doesn't work he tells us! He loves his holidays and would definitely say his tan is always the best!

Minute Taker

David Nadler

Naddy is a stalwart of the MJSL, played for many years with best days at JLB Spartak. Has spent various tenures on the committee including a stint as Reg Secretary. Meticulous in his role, Nad ensures all is in order.

Stan Feldman

Life Vice President

Stan Feldman

The Feldman family have long been associated with the MJSL through playing, refereeing and managing. Indeed our current premier Cup Final bears the name of Stan's brother Harold, Mel synonymous with MJSL Registrations, Steven, David and Daniel in later generations; Stan took the Rep squad over to Israel at the end of the 70s in an iconic tour, now spends part of the year abroad, very much retired, and everything the MJSL is about

Eric Cohen

Life Vice President

Eric Cohen

Ex Chairman through the MJSL's Golden Age of the 70/80s and refereed for many years. Eric was once dubbed Petrocelli as he never lost a case at County FA! Still an avid Man Utd supporter in his 80s, son Howard also played for many years and through Eric's tenure at the MJSL helm.  

Harry Sherman

Life Vice President

Harry Sherman

Jonny Davis

Life Vice President

Jonny Davis

Jonny is nearing 30 years on the Exec and is a Life Vice President. Previously a Chairman and when we had Junior Leagues, he was at the helm steering that ship along. Now a more back seat role is taken given club pursuits at South Manchester Sports. Jonny both played and managed back when the Scouse moustache had not even been thought of yet....some people mellow with age.. Hmmmm

Mike Edelson

President

Mike Edelson

Mike has been our President forever and a day; has supported the league over many years whether in terms of acquiring either pitch venues, hospitality or sponsorship. Back in our early days Mr Edelson donned the Prestwich Casuals kit and later moved on to play for Oldham Athletic in 1960, after a short football career, business Mike came forward then became non-Executive Director of Manchester United in 1982 where he remains to this day as a Board member. We are truly thankful for the 70th Dinner location.
