Josh Bharier (CM) - outstanding all-round performance topped with two world-class goals to win the game
Aron Luftig (RB/CB) - right-back then centre back after Parys Hammond went off injured - rock solid with fantastic energy and tempo until the end
Adam Kay (CM) - captain's performance. Controlled the midfield area
Dovi Vogel (LM) - scored a fantastic goal to get us back in the game, worked hard defensively and gave their full back problems going forward
Ricky Zeiderman (GK) - made a fantastic diving save low to the bottom corner in the first half to keep it at 0-0 and was solid throughout


Gideon Caller (GK) - played in goal for the first time since (in his own words) "too fat to play outfield" and made a couple of cracking stops as well as saving the penalty
Ezekiel Jacob (D) - won everything in the air at the back and neither deserved to concede four
Benni Sluckis (S) - was up front on his own the entire game but occupied three of their defenders, worked tirelessly, and scored a superb hat-trick


Dave Levy (LB) - was tirelessly up and down the wing, winning challenges and proving a threat going forward. An extremely disciplined performance
Elliott Coulton & Josh Cohen (CB) - the league's bushwackers. Came as a pair today and were excellent when Sosobad were under pressure, clearing their lines and not taking any prisoners
Richard Rosenthal (M) - had to dig deep when his midfield partner Josh Hambling got sent off but worked his socks off and once again got on the score sheet with a sublime effort and created another
James Law (M) - Law once again terrorised the oppositions defence, created another goal to add to his growing tally of assists and scored late on to finish off a battling Lions team


Chaim Korman - yet another superb protege out of the Korman dynasty - 16-year-old debutante turned in a master-class
Dave Seitler - exuded class from beginning to end - literally goes past players as if they are not there


Nick Stern (CM) - MOTM performance, won every tackle and every header in central midfield scored one of the goals of the season and a penalty. All-round superb performance
Mark Singer (M) - captain led by example today, not giving the camden midfielders any time on the ball, getting stuck in and managed to get on the scoresheet


Adam Levine (Oakwood) - as already mentioned. Man of match.

Liron Mannie (S) - shouldn't have really played as was only half fit. But played 90 minutes and worked tirelessly all game. Got the winner his work-rate and all-round display deserved
Ben Joseph (CM) - can't stop scoring free-kicks. Four now for the season. Central to everything good from a Raiders point of view
Jonny Kay (CM) - makes the team tick. Tenacious in the tackle but also and most importantly so careful with the ball. Hardly put a foot wrong all game


TOTW – Dan Ailion and Adam Levine (centre half). Absolutely magnificent

Liron Mannie (Raiders) – got very little out of Ailion but the battle was worth the entry fee alone. Deserves immense credit for his goal

Referee - Martin Lavender - Let the game flow, was tough but fair, and added to a breathless game with excellent officiating


Josh Bloom (S) - makes a huge difference when he's available for the Oranges. Showed again his touch is magnificent scored a peach of a goal and set up the first beautifully. Really looked like he was having fun on the pitch
Alex Sherr (CM) - the game needed a workhorse and a fighter and Alex showed this today on the pitch, put in a great shift in centre-mid
Jonny Samuel (RB) - excelled at right back and put his body on the line on more than one occasion as the NLR defence held firm. Looked a great threat going forward as well


Jamie Gordon (LB) - an excellent performance topped off with a goal
Josh Gordon (M) - strong league debut


Sammy Huberman (CB) - utility player covering at centre back today, was given man of the match for keeping NLRC quiet for most of the game, quietly mopping up
