Danny Caro's Team of the Week: March 17

In what could be the final Team of the Week for some time, due to Coronavirus and the suspension of all grass-roots football, here is this week's Select XI.


1. BEN HALMER (Jewdinese) - "single-handedly won the Zebras the game. Two or three superb saves during the game before two penalty saves and the winning penalty, what a day for him! He was outstanding"

2. JOSH PAMPEL (Borussia Barnet) - "pulling strings and was brilliant on the ball"

3. BENJY ISRAEL (Faithfold DocMM Green) - "solid and won a penalty" against Scrabble

4. ED BRAFMAN (NL Raiders) - "solid at CB as per. Not let in a goal from open play since October"

5. JOSH BLOOM (NL Raiders) - "Captain fantastic. Not let in a goal from open play since October"

6. ASH DIAMOND (NL Raiders) - "huge cameo today. Influenced the game having come on at 2-1"

7. JORDAN NATHAN (NL Raiders) - "4 goals. An absolute joke. Would be unplayable if he had a left foot. Goal of the season contender too!"

8. OLLIE HART (Borussia Barnet) - "first 2 goals and set the tone for a dominant performance. He was dangerous throughout."

9. MITCHELL GERBER (Borussia Barnet) - "2 goals 3 assists, can’t ask for much more. The driving force for us going forward as he is every game"

10. MARK WAGMAN (MLFC Brady) - hat-trick hero in the MMFL Cup

11. ANDREW BRUMMER (St John’s Wood Tigers) - fired a treble in Masters Cup
