David Ronson (CM) - impressive debut in the centre of midfield, battled all game. Won every header and scored a 35-yard screamer

Kane Gilbery (M) - two assists, had Brixton's full-back's number

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

SHIRLEY PARK
Rob Abrahams (GK) - after committing to Park between the sticks for the season, the former semi pro (Potters Bar and Hoddesdon Town) man was outstanding and commanded in the box, a great addition to the Park life crew

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

SPEC FC
Simon Bagel (CB) – rock solid on his home debut. Dominated in the air and was assured on the deck with a clean sheet to boot
Dave Newman (CM) – clinically grabbed the games only goal and showed classy touches throughout
Dan Henig (RM) - didn’t stop running and was a constant threat down the right hand side of the pitch

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS A
Jake Doffman (GK) – outstanding debut performance; aside from a fantastic penalty save, he exuded confidence and the clean sheet was never in doubt
Josh Morris (RB) – stand-out performer amongst the outfield players; strong in the tackle, a constant threat down the right hand side and stopped Lions getting anywhere near the goal
Ethan Zone (LW) – having played predominately for the B-team last season, Ethan showed that he was more than capable of making the step up with an accomplished performance on the left wing that included an assist for the own goal and a fine finish of his own
