Luke Lewis (LW) - hat-trick hero. Gaffer, Chairman, Goal-scorer

Jess Alexander (CM) - ran the game from midfield, excellent passing distribution

Jayden Brown (M) - the Jewish Lucas Torreira. Tireless running all game, apparently ran 18.7km. Outrageous numbers!

Ozzy Doron (CDM) - bossed his role. Ate up everything that came in his way. Exceptional defensive performance



Connor Perl (S) - 2 goals - should have been more, a constant threat

Mitch Young (S) - 1 goal, 5 assists brilliant game

Richard Salmon (S) - hat-trick and good link up



Craig Sanford (CM) - the guy is a machine, bossed the middle of the park



Oren Hury (GK) - without him, Faithfold C would have conceded five today. His excellent performance gave us the platform to get  goals and go for the win



Dan Andrews (CB) - gave a true captain's performance today, in a big game. Won everything in air, marshalled the troops well, and popped up with an important goal today

Adam Noble (DM) - the number of tackles this boy made today was just stunning. A very hard-working performance today

Calvin Dickson (CF) - 4 assists today for RJC talisman. Worked tirelessly on and off the the ball. A real talent

Kier Dickson (RW) - tormented the Jewdinese full-back all game. His technique is stunning and deserved his two goals

Sam Rank, Johan Simberg , Richie Caplin and Richard Stern (Management team) - gaining a very big victory against a big rival, which will help to towards the title push

REFEREE - David Lazarus - Bursing a bad knee, and a facial injury from playing squad, he handled a heated game impressively. Shows his class as being of the top officials in the league



Martin Smulovitch (CB) - came up from the B's and didn’t put a foot wrong at the back. Calm on the ball and won all his battles

Lolu Hibbert (CM) - Another B-team player, played in the middle, combined technique with energy and gave a real showing

Adam Waters (CM) - first full game for the Superhoops and really showed a composed performance, harried Lions constantly and his composure on the ball really settled Faithfold into a rhythm

REFEREE - Phil Peters - quietly controlled this well-fought game played in a very sporting fashion



Adrian Leibovitch (LB) – Playing out of position, Vale’s answer to Mathieu Flamini put in a solid performance, winning key 50-50s against a very pacey Spec winger. Was part of a defence that put in a solid shift today against a difficult SPEC side

Alex Trup (CB) – There are very few weeks where Vale’s vice captain fails to get a TOTW nomination from Jacob Emanuel and Danny Hirschberger. Alex was brilliant today, winning challenge after challenge and keeping SPEC's potent attack at bay. He’ll be missed over the next few weeks whilst he’s away with work

James Neidle (CB) – Vale’s captain marshalled the team throughout today. Forming a solid partnership at the back with Trup, collectively they snuffed out the majority of what SPEC could throw at us. In the words of keeper Adam Zaidman, “James didn’t put a foot wrong defensively” – a top compliment

Ashley Hirschberger (RB) – Another quality performance from Mr. Reliable. An assured performance at RB throughout the 90 minutes. There isn’t much that Ashley won’t do for the Vale on the football pitch

James Millet (CAM) – Once dubbed Vale’s “James Milner” by Danny Caro, Millet was determined to go not one, but two better than his namesake this weekend! Having not hit the target in our two previous games, James was determined as I've seen him this season and deservedly grabbed his second Vale hat-trick – the third of which was one of the best individual goals you’re likely to see this season. Absolutely deserves his MAN OF THE MATCH nomination. 10 goals for the season so far for James and he’s just getting started



Russ Corin (GK) - pulled off three remarkable saves, including one from a header that he had no right to get to

Ari Nevies/Simon Peterman (CB) - two of the best games I’ve seen them play, up against semi-pro strikers they kept them quiet game

Ari Last (CM) - dominated the physical battle and both the air ground game - was immense today and completely ran the game from the middle, running past players with ease and winning every header



Brad Wine (S) - sole striker. Worked his socks off and played superbly

Joe Botchin (GK) - Some fantastic saves in goal
