Danny Caro's Team of the Week: January 5
Here is the first MGBSFL Select XI of 2014.
1. BRADLEY GRANT (Redbridge Jewish Care B) - "it's not often a team wins 4-1 and their best player was the keeper, outstanding and extremely brave to make countless saves at the feet of oncoming strikers"
2. ALEX BLOCH (Norstar London Raiders A) - rock solid in the win over Faithfold
3. JUSTIN SPIRO (Norstar London Raiders A) - a textbook full-back's display
4. NOAH BIER (AC Whetstone) - "had another fine game" against Boca
5. JOSH PISTOL (Norstar London Raiders A) - didn't put a foot wrong against the champions
6. GUY HELMAN (Oakwood A) - ran Lions ragged on a pristine pitch at Rowley Lane
7. JONNY SHAPIRO (Norstar London Raiders B) - pulled the strings and always had time against Bilbaum
8. BEN MOSS (Faithfold B) - capped an excellent display against London Haroldeans with a goal
9. CRAIG SANDFORD (Redbridge JC B) - "debut goal and a constant menace up front"
10. PHILIPPE AURET (AC Whetstone) - three fab finishes proved too much for Boca
11. NICKY WOOLF (NL Raiders B) - scored his customary goal to keep his team flying high at the top of the table
