NOMINEES

TEMPLE FORTUNE
Dave Sawyer (CM) - was an absolute rock in the centre of midfield for the whole game, didn’t lose one header or one tackle and chipped in with an assist for the third in the brilliant win over Jewdinese
Zack Rich (S) - was a real handful for 90 minutes and the ‘Nese back four struggled to deal with him all game - the manager's MOtm
Michael Goldberg (M) - produced a magnificent second 45 and everything creative ran through him

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS C
Daniel Polak (CM) - after a slow start, came into his own in the second half, driving forward regularly with the ball and always being there to defend
Jonny Samuel (CB) - made some excellent tackles and led by example, a true captain's performance
Liam Stein (LB) - got forward when he could, but marshalled Orient's quick winger well throughout
Grant Waissel (GK) - a fourth clean sheet of the season, and although he didn't have a lot of saves to make, he organised the defensive unit well from between the sticks

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

L'EQUIPE
Gideon Chain who had a phenomenal game at right back and should be in any team of the week
Jamie Warwick (LW) - worked tirelessly at left-wing in a great debut performance
Mark Singer (CM) - "he put in such a performance. Out captain courageous was unreal in the middle. If anyone can point to a centre mid who loves a challenge more that mark I'll be keen to see them! Come rain, snow or sun he puts his body on the line week in, week out and we are lucky to have him"

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

SPEC FC
Simon Bagel (LB) - an excellent return after a lengthy period out
