Danny Caro's Team of the Week: February 19

There were several stand-out performances across the league and cup competitions on Matchday 22 of the season.


1. JAMES HARPIN (ML Lions B) - left Finchley boss Joel Holder in total disbelief as to how Lions won the game. Pulled off a string of stunning saves

2. YARDEN SHARON (Catford & Bromley) - "ran the game and really put in an excellent 90 minutes"

3. RYAN COLE (Redbridge JC A) - "a magnificent performance, two assists for Garfinkle to score and a cross-field pass to Sam Sollosi which was the best pass Jon Jacobs has seen all season. He really should be playing at a higher level and was unplayable today. Man-of-the-match today by a distance"

4. NICK SMITH (ML Lions A) - a tower of strength and calmness personified which led to a clean sheet against FC Team

5. DAN GEEY (Oakwood B) - "rolled back the years with an exquiste midfield performance"

6. DANIEL GARFINKLE (Redbridge JC A) - "playing out wide, he has been quiet this season but exploded today, his turbo-boost pace just unbelievable and he gave the Brady backline nightmares every time the ball was at his feet. His two goals were fitting of his performance"

7. ELLIOT ESPINOZA (Scrabble FC) - "in the No. 10 roll, back to his superb best working so well off big Danny Sherman the pair looked unplayable. Scored a magical opening goal for Scrabble to put them ahead

8. JOSH COHEN (Hertswood Vale) - "five goals in his last three games. Grabbed a class hat-trick and a goal-of-the-season contender to grab his second of the afternoon. 10 goals now for the season, as he looks to trump brother Zach for the golden booT. Man of the match""

9. ZAC LEWIS (Hendon Utd SC A) - "after a few quiet weeks right back to his mesmerising best. Scored the perfect hat trick – header, left foot right foot"

10. JONNY BLAIN (NL Raiders C) - "nominated for performance/team of the week and goal of the week - a goal scored immediately from the KO at the halfway line. Sublime!"

11. JAKE GILBERT (NL Raiders B) - commended by both managers in the North London Raiders' derby. Dan Shafron described him as "tremendous" while Jonny Adelman 

STAR MAN: Elliot Espinoza (Scrabble FC)

MANAGER: Jacob Emanuel & Jack Shulman (Hertswood Vale)

REFEREE: Steve Russell (Hertswood Vale vs Redbridge JC C)
