Martin Smulovitch (CB) - getting better with age and forming a great partnership with Gilad Kestenbaum

Gav Noe (S) - scored both on his return from his injury - good to have him back!

Motty Korman (CM) - phenomenal in the centre of the park today. Won everything



Ben Mandell (CM) - a box to box captain's performance, including two goals



Ed Bloom (GK) - safe pair of hands in the Scrabble goal with some outstanding saves

Tony Gold centre back Scrabble legend rolling back the years with a superb defensive display at centre back and a rock at the heart of the action

Ben Cantopher (CB) - perfect display  as the other centre back allowing nothing past him

Josh Pugh (CM) - another masterful performance by the Scrabble captain

Craig Cole (M) - worked tirelessly as the ball winner for 90 minutes winning the ball all over the pitch for his team

Craig Edwards (S) - two more goals, making it five in two games, for the Scrabble striker who again gave a superb display up front bringing team-mates into the game with a lot of unselfish running

Zac Summerfield (S) - spent the whole morning being battered by the Fortune defence but would not buckle under pressure and weighed in with the fourth goal



Joe Botchin (GK) - clean sheet on debut

Toby Levy (CM) - so consistent helping out in the middle of the park

Jonny Quinn (S) - goals per minute ratio very high. Another goal from the bench

Josh Cuby (M) - three assists for the pacy win man. Impressive performance

Brad Wine (M) - (additional nomination from the onlooking DC for superb link-up play, pass and move and vision)



Ashley Burns (CB) - commanding in defence on debut

Mitch Young (S) - 4 goals back to his best



Ben Gabay (GK) - new to 11-a-side, had a tough one last week but today was fantastic, made numerous stops to maintain the Superhoops lead

Avi Garson (RW) - up and down all game and Blancos simply couldn't live with him

Dovi Vogel (CDM) - back in the team and back in style, swept up everything, moved play forward and scored a nice free-kick

Gideon Caller (LB) - nothing got past him at the back, made darting runs forward and played some fantastic balls into dangerous channels



James Frener (CM) - having the most brilliant season. Pulled the strings in midfield and was vital for all goals. Just a brilliant performance

Ben Feingold (CM) - also having a really good season and the emergence of Ben and James as a partnership has been massive for us this year



Marc Rister (CM) - superb in the middle of the park against the Lions, and covered more miles than anyone making sure we held onto our lead

Stanley Offord (LWB) - showed why for me he is the best left sided wing back in the league as he ran the Lions right-hand side ragged



Adam Ellis (S) - two goals and two assists as he put in yet another match winning performance to put him on 16 for the season

Eli Davila (CDM) - really stepped up with the game at 2-2 with his engine in the middle of the park an asset yet again. Exceptional player



Adam Isaacs (RW) - although his work on the ball was good, it was his tireless work off the ball that made him stand out. His pressing got the team on the front foot from minute one and he didn't allow the Fortune defenders a second on the ball all game

Harry Moss (CM) - he bossed the midfield and won the ball back for the team on countless occasions. His drive through the Fortune team to set-up the fourth goal was a real highlight of the match

Richard Reback (GK) - because of a late injury, he only found out he was playing in goal two minutes before kick-off, but he pulled off several impressive stops and smothered dangerous one-on-one situations to keep us in the lead

Zach Cohen (CF) - he was a nuisance up-top from start to finish and his work across the front line was rewarded with yet another hat-trick. He will definitely be targeting the Golden Boot ahead of Adam Ellis and if he keeps up this form, there is no reason why he can't achieve that
