Danny Caro's Team of the Week: September 3

The first Select XI combines some of the leading lights from the MGBSFL and MJSL.


1. JONI HIRSCHOWITZ (Hertswood Vale) - having recently returned from the army, Hirschowitz was in the form of his life on his debut, pulling off some notable diving saves to tip a number of shots around the post. If Bafana Bafana are looking for a new No. 1, they need not look much further

2. ADRIAN LEIBOVITCH (Hertswood Vale) - vice-captain (and captain for the day) had one of the games of his life - winning possession back left, right and centre both in the air and on the ground. The number of times he was fouled gives an idea of how highly the opposition rated him

3.  SAUL TIANO (Straw Hat Pirates) - the latest member of the Tiano dynasty to join the Maccabi league, Tiano had solid game at CB.  A true example of a Straw Hat, coming with little Sunday league experience, and putting in 100% the whole game

4.  BRAD GAYER (Fairlop FC) - commanding figure in the middle of the park

5.  DANNY YESHUA ​(Catford & Bromley) - a menace throughout and although didn't score looked great on the wing and will have a great season if he continues in the same way

6. HARRY MARLOW (Hertswood Vale) - another debutant that shone against Fairlop. Produced a number of dazzling runs on the right side of midfield and played a peach of a through-ball to set up our goal. Defensively, he ensured that former MGBSFL player of the year Ryan Cole was kept quiet

7. MATT BERKLEY (Fairlop FC) - controlled the tempo of the game very well against Hertswood

8. ARON GALE (Straw Hat Pirates) - the youngster signed from London Lions youth continues to impress going forward, scoring a great goal today however is always seen tracking back and putting himself on the line for the team

9. ETHAN MOONEY (Straw Hat Pirates) - "added a lot of quality to our game in the final third, especially with such an outstanding goal and will be a a great asset for us going forward

10. THEO TOBIAS (Leeds Maccabi) - mesmerising performance in the win over Manchester Maccabi

11. JONATHAN FRANKS (South Manchester Sport) - continued where he left off by scoring twice for South in their 3-2 win.

MANAGER: Jeff Gotch (Catford & Bromley)

REFEREE: Lee Browne (Catford & Bromley vS Straw Hat Pirates)
