Danny Caro's Most Improved Team of the Season


1. JAKE DOFFMAN (NL Raiders A) - Last season's top stopper took his game up a notch this year, finishing with the most clean sheets

2. DANNY MOSS (FC Team B) - "created a new position at right-back and been extremely solid, capped off with 6 goals for the season"

3. RYAN COLE (Redbridge A) - "could easily be in team of year. He is one of the most gifted players in the league at 18/19 will get better and better"

4. JAMES BELL (L’Equipe) - "As one of the new boys in L’Equipe, he was fighting for a place in our most competitive position, but once he got his chance he snapped it up. He is a tireless central midfielder and puts it all on the line in every game he’s played for us. Managed to get on the scoresheet a few times and has been a great addition to the L’Equipe family. Did get unlucky with a bad injury halfway through the season, but came back in for our last few games to help ensure Division Two status. I look forward to him having an injury free year next season"

5. ALON HIRSHKORN (FC Team A) - took his game to another level for the side that finished fifth

6. NICK STERN (L’Equipe) - "I think this was probably his best season for L’Equipe since joining. Started the season at centre-back alongside David Prager, but once he moved into central midfield, we saw a new Nick Stern. Making driving runs through midfield, creating chances and scoring some absolute scorchers. I have to mention the brilliant bicycle kick he scored, which I still don’t know how it didn’t get goal of the week, but it definitely gets my nomination for goal of the season"

7. JONNY KAY (NL Raiders A) - was outstanding in two key matches against Hendon and raised his game big time

8. JOSH BHARIER (London Rovers) - "his first ever senior 11-a-side season Josh has scored 15 goals from central midfield including a hat-trick on his debut. He has got better and better as the season went on and has everything in his game. Hard tackling, finishing, pace and energy. Was the match winner for a number of games this season including the title winning match against Faithfold B. Josh is the future of Jewish football"

9. SHIM BENSOOR (FC Team A) - "had a fantastic year. With 18 goals to his name and a real break through season for Shim. His pace and power is electrifying and he causes every defender a nightmare"

10. DANIEL GARFINKLE (Redbridge JC B) - his first season at his home club couldn't have gone much better. Finished the campaign with the Golden Boot and a Division One winners' medal

11. AVI MARKIEWICZ (London Rovers) - "it didn't work out for Avi in the mighty white shirt of Blancos, but he shuffled across to the neighbouring pitch at West Hendon and had a cracking time, banging the goals in for fun"
