Gold: Key defenders were our star men

By Danny Caro, June 10, 2011

London Lions manager Tony Gold praised his "defensive rocks" after Guy Morris and Adam Myeroff were recognised for outstanding achievement at the club's end-of-season awards.

Morris was voted Players' Player of the Year and Myeroff Manager's Player in a season where the club ventured into the South Midlands League for the first time and won the Herts FA Centenary Cup.

Gold said: "Myeroff was our player of the year simply because he was the most committed throughout the season. He played 49 matches and was at training virtually every week. Performance wise from week to week, he was without doubt the most consistent. He rarely put a foot wrong whether playing at right-back, centre-half or left-back.

"Guy's award was also fully deserved. He was committed, consistent and rarely had a bad game."

Gold described striker James Gershfield's 36-goal return from 31 matches as "a fantastic achievement at any level".

Awards: Reserves: Frank Hyman (PPOY), Ben Lampert (MPOY), LML A: Ben Joseph (PPOY), Josh Morris (MPOY), LML Masters: Jon Isaacs (PPOY), Jon Rayner (MPOY), Young Player: Jordan Marks
