NOMINATIONS

HENDON A
Martin Smulovitch (LB) - a strong faultless performance
Avidan Last (S) - an excellent energetic display running the Faithfold defence ragged

CHIGWELL
Craig Pearl (2 assists) Anthony Mendel (both midfield)

HENDON B
James Josephs (CM) - dominated in the centre of the park.
Ra Noe (S) - tireless running, held the ball up well and had a hand in all four goals
Motty Korman (LW) - another two important goals, caused havoc to their back four all morning

ATHLETICO FINCHLEY
Andrew Greenwall Cohen (CF) - He created chance after chance and managed to score a great goal
Zach Margolin (RB) - Played well defensively and got a nice assist for the goal
Sam Marchant (CB) - kept top scorer Craig Sandford quiet all game – something not many can say they have achieved the season
Jack Wagner (CDM) - showed great discipline as he man marked star man Dan Lassman out the whole game

FC TEAM B
James Milman (D) - played brilliantly left back and then moved to centre back with no trouble at all after Adam was sent off
Richard Sternberg (M) - two great assists and was solid throughout
Emile Ben-Atar (M) - another two great goals from the defensive midfielder

LONDON MACCABI LIONS B
Max Kyte (cm) - pulled the strings in midfield, didn't misplace a pass, broke up play and scored a great goal to open the scoring

NORTH LONDON RAIDERS B
Rik Sherman & Dan Grossman (CBs) - they have been stalwarts all season and they were absolutely superb yesterday. They had the unenviable task of looking after Bolle, Stolerman and Summers for the entire 90 minutes yet they remained unflustered throughout and put in two exceptional performances

LONDON MACCABI LIONS A
Sam Castle (GK) - excellent display in goal for his sixth clean sheet in the last eight league games
Ollie Leslie (CB) - another fine display from the centre half following on from a commanding display last week
Joel Ross (S) - simply outstanding all-round display from the Lions striker. Lead the line tremendously and capped his fine performance with a well-taken first goal

SPEC FC
Ashley Burns - (CM) - another goal. Another assist. Does the SPEC captain ever not produce?
Nick Wallis (RB) - perfectly-timed tackle after perfectly-timed tackle. Remarkable
Marc Hecht (CM) - silky skills, tenacious tackles and a match winning goal. Scotland's finest
