DANNY CARO'S JC MSFL TEAM OF THE WEEK

DANNY CARO'S DIVISION 4 TEAM OF THE WEEK

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

JC MSFL GOAL OF THE WEEK
Craig Sandford (Glenthorne B) - Whatever Crouch did, Sandford matched it. From a long goal-kick, he brought the ball down and in an instant volleyed from 30 yards into the top right corner. Worthy of winning any game

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

JC SAVE SAVE OF THE WEEK
Russell Corin (Hendon A) - with a minute of injury time left and the ball lobbing around in our area, Corin somehow managed to arch his back and tip out a point-blank header from three yards out which seemed destined for the roof of the net

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

JC QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Craig Sandford (Glenthorne Utd B - on his winning goal) "I hate talking about myself, but my goal has to be goal-of-the-week. Whatever Crouch did, I matched it. My best ever goal!"

JC REFEREE OF THE WEEK
