Email nominations to



Sam Sollosi (LW) - inspired performance. Tormented the LML right back back all game, scored a cracking goal too
Danny Sugarman (D) - won every tackle and set up numerous attacks. Clever and subtle all game
Richie Caplin (CB) - auxiliary centre back; won every personal battle, marshalled the RJC defence and restricted LML's attacking options to a handful of chances
Eilon Kennet (M) - masterminded his old club's first defeat in 11 games with an inspired performance from a young team

Josh Bentley (M) - for a brilliant dominant midfield performance
Alex Gilbert (RB) for an all-action energetic display

Adam Kosky (Midfield) – provided opportunity after opportunity for goals. Hit the crossbar with a fantastic strike and ran the game. His best performance of the season.
James Gold (S) – Again – Hat-trick hero still on hot form. How can you not nominate him.

Ryan Colet & Seb Vandermolen (D) - "outstanding" at the back

Ben Weinberg (M) - "was particularly good in the second - I'm glad he's going to be on my side and not playing against us when we head to Marseille later this month!" (from Norstar boss Phil Peters)

Simon Levene (CM) - a magnificent defensive performance in the middle of the park. First game in five that he didn't get booked too!
Aron Lewis (RB) - performed for the second week running at right back and did a fantastic job.
Michael Perkin (GK) - wasn't called into action too much, but when he was made two excellent saves

Mark Singer (M) – a great performance from the holding midfielder, he ran the game for us in the second half
Andy Burke (S) – worked tirelessly throughout the game covering every blade of grass. Had his hand in every attack and capped off a great performance with a well taken goal

Simon Roth (GK) - great kicking and and a couple of key saves in the first half to keep the Baums level
The defence - Aarons-Richardson, Berkley, Landes, Pasha - no-one stood out but the best performance as a unit all season
Adam Bier (CM) - one of his best performances this season, tireless and dogged as he as been all season
Sam Roth (CM) - another workman like and higely effective display in the centre of the park
Rob Rodney (CM) - perhaps performance of the day - came off the bench and won everything he challenged for, including things he had absolutely no right to
Ben Bell (wing) - won the penalty and should have had another, as well as a goal unfairly disallowed
Ed Green (F) - another rock like performance dominating the opposition defence
Jake Gilbert (F) - for the winner

Joe Newton (S) - bags of energy. Fortune couldn't handle him. Capped his performance with a great 25-yard strike
