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

NOMINATIONS

BRADY MACCABI A
Jordan Nathan (CB) - in very difficult conditions, read the game superbly and never let the FC Team forwards get on top of him
Josh Gordon (M) - in his first start after injury, won the midfield battle and never missed a tackle

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

FC TEAM B
Stuart Haring (CB) – solid again and cleared everything in sight. Has become a key player in his side's good form
James Milman (CB) – first game for over two months after injury and was faultless. Also made a vital clearance off the line at 0-0
Paul Savitz (CM) – scored the goal, created and had chances and made a number of key tackles in his own half. Another vital player
Freddie Marks (CM) – won headers, covered a lot of ground and complimented Savitz very well
Jon Franks (RM) – hard-working performance to get forward and defend and unlucky not to score a wonder goal when his shot crashed off of the crossbar after some good skill

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

CHIGWELL ATHLETIC (Pick of the bunch!)
Dean Ben Yosef (S) - best player on the pitch. Unplayable with movement and raw pace. Just too good for RJC back line. MOM
Glenn Davis (CB) - was given a job to mark Adam Stolerman and delivered perfectly. Stayed tight to him and dominated in air
Steve Summers (M) - two assists, brilliant work-rate and given a free role. Found the gaps perfectly. Showed his class
Jay Jaffa (GK) - two match-winning saves in each half - fingertips over the bar and one turned round the post. Looked solid and back to his best
James Jaconelli (S) - quiet first half, but came into his own in second. His first goal was an unstoppable swerving strike from 30 yards, with weaker foot, that left Dan Lee with no chance

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

NORSTAR LONDON RAIDERS A
Jake Doffman (GK) – exceptional performance in which nothing was ever going to make it past him
