Danny Caro's Team of the Week: December 19

Here are the star men from the last round of matches in the MGBSFL of 2017.


1. JONI HIRSCHOWITZ (Hertswood Vale) - praised by both managers. "Reaffirmed his title as the league's best keeper. Absolutely superb today, making save after save after save. Kept the opposition at bay, whilst giving the rest of the team confidence that we wouldn't be on the losing side at the end of the day. Watching on from the sidelines, ref-turned-spectator Neal Cohen couldn't believe the saves he was pulling off. Man of the match" against FC Team

2. MAX CLYNES (Oakwood B) - "now one of the longest-serving players he is having the second of his life at the heart of "defence. Scored the vital third goal

3. JOSH TIANO (Camden Park) - defended for his life against Oakwood

4. ASHLEY HIRSCHBERGER (Hertswood Vale) - grabbed his first goal for the Vale with a speculative drive from inside his own half which left the keeper stranded. He's been trying it for a number of weeks but we never thought it would actually pay off! Will likely find Mitch Young in his back pocket when he gets home

5. GRANT BATES (Camden Park) - "scored on debut, following move from L'Equipe, with a great header, organised the back four and had a very good debut"

6. BRADLEY GAYER (Fairlop FC) - "was superb from start to finish and much of what we done good went through the skipper. He was involved in five of our seven goals, scoring three and assisting two. Captain, leader, Fairlop legend"

7. GIDEON GALE (Straw Hat Pirates) - "a top quality performance, spraying passes around topped "of by a goal from outside the box. Unplayable. The best display in a SHP shirt, and probably in his life. Gideon dictated the midfield from start to finish. He cut out the few Raiders attacks they had, he distributed the ball perfectly and with such composure. He consistently tested the keeper and scored a great goal to justify his MOTM status

8. BRADLEY WINE (Oakwood A) - "scored crucial late winner" against Camden Park

9. DANIEL SELWYN (Oakwood B) - "three assists for the lad after being handed a start in his dream 10 position "

10. JOE METLISS (Real Hendon) - star man against Faithfold B who couldn't live with his pace, finishing or twinkle-toed runs


11. DAVID WOOLMAN (Oakwood A) - "for his two goals - Mr Consistent. Played every game and a superb finisher as always"

STAR MAN: Joni Hirschowitz (Hertswood Vale)

MANAGERS OF THE WEEK: Jacob Emanuel and Danny Hirschberger (Hertswood Vale)

REF OF THE WEEK: Mark Jacob (Scrabble FC vs Oakwood B)
