NOMINATIONS:

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

HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB C
Yaacov Goldin (GK) - made several superb stops during the 90 mins, then excelled himself with 4 spot kick saves. Only blot in his copybook was missing a penalty himself!

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

FAITHFOLD C
Jonathan Gahan (D) - star player for the Superhoops today, terrific performance at the back
Rob Shooman (M) - also deserves credit for making few tough calls with subs which ended up paying dividend

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS C
Grant Waissel (GK) - commanded his box and pulled off a stunning save at 1-0 to preserve Norstar's lead. A thoroughly deserved second clean sheet of the season.
Andy Cohen (RB) - playing on the other side of the pitch to usual, he played with calmness and assurance and made some vital challenges
Jake Yudelowitz (CB) - possibly the best centre back in the league, Jake put in another outstanding performance, with vital interceptions and a commanding presence at the back
Jonny Samuel (CB) - having been asked to play in the unfamiliar centre back role some weeks back, Jonny has settled in brilliantly and formed an impressive partnership with Jake. He made some crucial challenges today and put in a real captain's performance.
Liam Stein (LB) - motored up and down with left flank all game and kept things calm towards the end when it was most needed. Solid as ever

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

KING CROWN
Ben Retter (CB) - outstanding against Loughton Orient and a pleasure to watch, he was man of the match. He played like Terry Butcher
Josh Karpf (CB) - played well alongside Retter against Loughton

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS A
Jake Doffman (GK) - yet again excelled in goal and was head and shoulders above anyone else on the pitch without really having a save to make
David Rhodes (CB) - particularly outstanding against Faithfold A

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

BRADY MACCABI B
Reiss Mogilner (S) - exploded after a quiet first half with a simply breathtaking second. Two outstanding solo goals and an assist to cap off a great day at the office
David Newman (CM)- capped an excellent debut with a goal to drive his side on to victory at Chase Lodge
Simon Moses (CM) - covered every inch of grass. Set the tone for everyone else. Beastly performance
Ben Hildebrand (CB) - continued his fine form. Typical aggressive and passionate performance from 'Ranny'. Deserved the clean sheet

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

LONDON MACCABI LIONS WHITE
Ben Lazarus (GK) - a huge performance from a young goalkeeper who made great one-on-one save in extra-time followed by another in the shoot-out win over L'Equipe
