Email nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hendon United Sports Club A
Greg Corin for an incredible performance topped off with 2 sensational strikes
Joel Barnett (CM) - Joel was fantastic in the centre of midfield today. He tackled hard as usual and created a lot of play but also showed he can finish with two good goals. The second of which was a sublime finish. Three goals in two games for the midfielder
Daniel Mattey (RM) - once again, the new signing showed his class, running Boca ragged from the right of midfield. He came very close on three occasions and helped set up the move of the season with the most fantastic run of the whole pitch, beating three players. One spectator even said "You just can't teach that"
Paul Shone (CB) - solid performance, lead from example
London Maccabi Lions B
James Gold (S) – last week his manager said "it's not fair to nominate him every week", but this week with a hat- trick and an assist, he said: "I've got to nominate him
Ryan Springer – (CB) superb performance. Was great going forward, great defensively and lead by example
David Kosky (GK) - having recently re-signed for Lions B, he played a key role in the win over Glenthorne
Matt Green & Alex Springer (FB) - did a top job on their respective flanks
Ian Weinstein (GK) - "heroic. Played through injury before collapsing in the last 20 minutes"
Jono Gaon (S) - has a pace, strength and a wonderful finish and the second goal of his hat-trick was outstanding
Luke Brookner (RW/S) - a goal and two assists. "He’s been a tremendous signing and played an important part in our last 3 games against Redbridge, Glenthorne and Hendon which has really been the crunch point in our push for promotion and title challenge. Playing both wide left and behind the striker, he coupled his considerable talent with a excellent desire and work-rate, really leading by example. Won and converted a penalty, and whipped in the freekick which led to the winner. A constant threat"
Guy Marks (S)- "showed his class and was the driving force of our team for the entire 90 minutes"
Josh Marks (CM) - "was tough in the tackle in central midfield"
Jake Saunders (CM) - "shone in central midfield. He got stuck in and showed that when the going gets tough, he really gets going. Sublime vision and passing range all game"
Catford & Bromley Maccabi
Adam Lister (RB) -at just 17, he was outstanding throughout the whole game. Strong tackling and got forward brilliantly to support to attack. His passing and strength caused Jewventus all kinds of problems and it was undoubtedly his best performance since joining Catford
