Danny Caro's Team of the Week: December 18

My final Select XI of 2016 is packed with goals and quality.


1. Nati Kind (RC UK FC) - "passed the physical test of Fortune with literal flying colours. He made four or five remarkable saves. He caught and punched corner and long throw, one after another. After starting the season as our sub keeper he has made the position his own. Man of the Match"

2. Gav Krieger (Finchley City) - "leader on and off the pitch. Immense performance at the back. Won every battle"

3. Yisroel Lewis (RC UK FC) - "put in a magnificent shift, for such a technically gifted player he was never phased by the physical nature of the game and actually thrived"

4. Bailey Snow (Hertswood Vale) - "travelled back from university and into the squad with a vengeance. Didn't miss a single header all morning and popped up with the winner with a great finish"

5. Mark Smith (L’Equipe) - "must be something about playing Catford because the boy ran the show again, controlled everything, won everything, and played passes around like he was a mix of Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit"

6. Yehuda Korman (Hendon Utd SC A) - "an absolutely scintillating hat trick to go with a fantastic performance. Easily the best player on the pitch" against Woodford

7. Lollu Hibbert (Real Hendon) - "controlled the centre of the park and a continual threat. Bagged an excellent hat-trick including a Scholes-esque volley from the edge of the area"

8. SAM SOLLOSI (Redbridge JC B) - praised by both managers, "tremendous first half display, of passing, dribbling at pace, and caused the Oakwood defence so many problems. Legs tired in second half, but was constant threat"

9. James Mandell (L’Equipe) - " simply unplayable, breezed past his opponents like they weren’t there and capped it off with a magical goal"

10. Jono Gaon (Finchley City) - "the boy is just oozes class. One of the best individual performances I have ever seen. Scored a sensational goal goal at 1-0 to set us off. Just an immense player in every department"

11. Brad Wine (Oakwood A) - "caused Lions problems from minute 1. He has been badly missed and we are delighted to welcome him back for the rest of the season.

STAR MAN: Brad Wine (Oakwood A)

MANAGER: Dan Kristall & Ric Blank (Oakwood A)

REFEREE: Daniel Fox (Los Blancos v Faithfold A)
