There is something of a northern flavour to my national Jewish Select XI which reflects the heroics of Manchester Maccabi in the Peter Morrison Trophy.
DANNY CARO'S JEWISH CHRONICLE TEAM OF THE WEEK
1. Jake DOFFMAN (London Maccabi Lions A) - enjoyed a dream debut at fortress Fairlop to earn Lions a famous win
2. Dan WRIGHT (Redbridge Jewish Care B) - excelled in his first outing in a year on the 3G against Raiders B
3. Ashley LOOFE (Manchester Maccabi 1st) - one of the star performers as the 2011 winners flexed their muscles to end Faithfold's quadruple dreams
4. Nick LANDESBERG (London Maccabi Lions A) - "for his colossal performance, keeping the Redbridge forwards at bay, and his dominant performance winning every single ball in the air"
5. Adam SERES (Norstar B) - "back to his dominating best at centre back, commanding over both games against Bilbaum and a threat at set-pieces"
6. Craig ELLIS (London Lions) - the stand-out player in the 5-1 victory at Winslow United
7. Louie BASSO (Manchester Maccabi 1st) - showed his class in the midfield engine room against Faithfold. A young man going places ...

9. Mark MARTELL (Jewventus) - his performance left manager Gabriel John foaming at the mouth
10. Richard SILVER (Camden Park) - moved on to 14 league goals for the season as he shot down table-topping Shirley Park with a stunning hat-trick
