NOMINATIONS:

BRADY MACCABI A
Rob Cohen (M) - great man-of-match performance in the centre of the park ... always looked for the ball and pulled the strings throughout the match

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

FC TEAM A
Dave Grossman (GK) - had to fill in goal last minute and made a couple of outstanding saves
Jake Weiner (CB) - first game back in 3 months and led the line brilliantly
Simon Peterman (CM) - bossed the midfield yet again
Adam Rones (CM) - scored a great goal then moved to left back and was brilliant
Dec Selbo (LM) - unplayable best player on the pitch and a constant threat
Marc Harris (S) - back after long-term injury with two well taken goals

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS B
Dave Esterkin (M) - capped an all action, crunching tackles, box to box display with what was ultimately the winner

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

HENDON UNITED SPORTS CLUB A
Yoav Lebens (M) - showed great experience all game firstly in central midfield then when marshalling the defence for the last 25 minutes

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS A
Jonny Kay (CM) – controlled the game for Raiders from the middle of midfield
Jonny Blain (CF) – the most eagerly awaited comeback since Andy Carroll, what more can you ask of your forward in 20 minutes than to go on, score a couple of goals and pose a constant threat to the opposition defence

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

BRADY MACCABI B
Joshua Newman (M) - Superb performance from the Dr in a game that meant so much. Everything good Brady B did was through him and capped the performance off with an excellent winner

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

SOUTHGATE HARMEN
Sam Castle (S) – dominant in the air and capped off his performance with a goal. Starting to show that he might have made a good decision to swap the goalie gloves for his shooting boots!
Ben Weinberg (M) – constantly winning the ball back and his ability to retain the ball with THREE players surrounding him never ceases to amaze
