NOMINATIONS

FC TEAM A
Josh Greenham (RB) - full of passion and desire, bombing up and down the right hand side, solid and best game in a team shirt capped with a goal
James Milman - (CB) - last-minute call-up from the B Team and was flawless
Jon Breger (CM) - captain's performance leading by example in difficult circumstances and chipped in with a goal

----------------

NORTH WEST NEASDEN
Steve Murad (GK) - got off the plane at 7am, got to the game and kept the 10 men in the game with some outstanding saves - a fantastic team man

----------------

HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A
Russell Corin (GK) - a colossus in goal - making a number of crucial saves and a great inspiration
Ben Kon (D) - faultless in defence and a huge threat coming forward down the right flank

----------------

BRADY MACCABI A
Sam Monjack (M) – 17 and ran the midfield, was unplayable, just a shame that from his creativity his teammates weren’t clinical on the day
Jordan Nathan/Zac Skry (CB) – the two centre halves were a superb double act and played out from the back brilliantly which must have been good viewing from the watching Maccabiah manager Jonny Rose

----------------

L'EQUIPE
Richard Fogelman (S) - another phenomenal game up top with another hat-trick and a dead cert for goal of the week with a 35-yard screamer of a free kick sandwiched in between two cool finishes past the keeper. L'Equipe "almost managed to charge an entrance fee from some of the FC Team and Hendon boys on the next pitch to watch fogey - it was billed as "feed the Foge and he will score"
Jamie Warwick (GK) - had a great game against Boca
Gideon Chain (RB) - another full-bodied performance

----------------

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS B
Dave Esterkin & Simon Buchler (CM) - showed unbelievable engines on such a poor, heavy surface
David Simnock (GK) - one brilliant save and set things up for his team
Danny Bloom (M) - had two assists (his delivery for NLR's second goal was superb)

----------------

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS A
David Dinkin (S) – complete striker’s performance in tortuous conditions. Kept his head when his markers were losing theirs and topped it all off with the vital goal
Jake Doffman (GK) – third clean sheet in a row and despite being called upon very little made a world-class save just before half-time to keep his side in the game

----------------

LOS BLANCOS
Joel Kutner (LW) - stand-in captain led my example, scoring two and setting up another
James Joseph (CB) - continued his impressive form at centre back with an assured performance
Zak Mcleod (RM) - first started in a Blancos shirt, getting three assists and one goal
Darren Russell (CM) - controlled the game from the middle of the park

----------------

SOUTHGATE HARMEN
Ben Weinberg (CM) – most comfortable when he is hunting for the ball, always happy to receive the ball to feet and seems to beat any player in the air despite being one of the smallest on the pitch. Showed his true class with a well-taken goal
Ben Henry (ST) – improving with every minute of football he plays, starting to look more and more comfortable on the ball beating players on the wing and in the middle. His youthfulness will lift the team in the latter stages of the season and the Harmen dubious goals panel credited him with their third of the game
