Daniel Selwyn (M)  - three assists for the lad after being handed a start in his dream 10 position 

Ben Lewis (GK) - big well done to Lewis who has been a really good addition to the squad this season. Made two fantastic saves to keep Oakwood in front

Simon Davies (M) - A Rolls Royce. So lucky to have been loaned him as he comes back from injury. 90 minutes will have helped him enormously

Max Clynes (D) - 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

Ben Feingold (M) - a total revelation in his first season. Today he was at his best: brilliant first touch, composed in the middle of the park and allowed others to get forward



Ashley Hirschberger (CB) - 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

Josh Wood (CM) - put in a captain's performance once again. Never stopped running, and won every single header in the centre of the park as he caused the opposition nightmares. Grabbed a well-taken goal to put us ahead before half-time

Adrian Leibovitch (LB) - when one of our players pulled out this morning, Adrian put himself forward to play out of his comfort zone at full-back. Usually found in the centre of the park, the vice-captain marked his final performance of the season before he heads to Brazil for six months with a solid display as part of a makeshift back foour. Boa sorte, Adrian!

Joni Hirschowitz (GK) - 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



Grant Bates (D) - scored on debut, following move from L'Equipe, with a great headerm organised the back four and had a very good debut

Josh Tiano, David Khalatschi (D) - defended for their lives

Johan Jordi (M) - superb throughout

Rick Harris (CM) - 49-years-old, with out doubt the class act on show

Max Martin (S) - another new arrival from L'Equipe enjoyed, capped a very good debut with a goal

Steve Murad (GK) - very assured, had a lot of crosses to deal with, one very good save in a one-on-one save



Bradley Gayer (LM) - 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



Barney Rhodes (S) - a tireless performance chasing down everything, did everything but score. An outstanding display, at times humilated the NLR defence. The one man other than our MOM who deserved a goal. Whether it was his lethal runs, his dangerous crossing or his consistently testing the keeper, Barney made sure we were a threat going forwards

Gideon Gale (M) - 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

Aron Gale (S) - another couple of goals to add to the ever-growing tally he is building up. The Gale natural eye for goal was out in full force today - with a great shot and blinding header. Aron is continuing to climb up that goal-scorer list - Ellis watch out!



Bradley Wine (M) - scored crucial late winner

David Woolman (LM) - for his two goals - Mr Consistent. Played every game and a superb finisher as always



Ed Bloom (GK) - outstanding between the sticks today with crucial saves at key times

Glen Turner (CB) - solid as a rock at the back and setting up play bringing the ball out

Ben Krieger (CB) - strong in the air and tough in the tackle against the lively Oakwood forwards

Oli Richardson (LB) - nothing got past him all morning and was a threat to Oakwood coming forward with pace
