Benny Goldberg (S) - two excellent goals and caused their defence problems all game

Gali Kolt (LB) - fantastic performance from the ever-improving Aussie

Gilad Kestenbaum (CB) - solid as always and kept their strikers quiet throughout



Danny Sherman (S) - scored three, created two and led the line superbly throughout

Jake Saunders (M) - excellent throughout, his best game so far



Scott Shear (GK) - last-gasp save in the 120th minute. Two world-class penalty saves

Max Freedman (CB) - rock at the back and score two great goals, the second being in the 96th minute to take it to ET

Daniel Bean & Matt Berkeley (CM) - firstly, Happy Birthday Beany! This is a joint nomination as they work so well together, never seem to be more than 5-10 yards away from each other, they are best mates of the pitch and that really shows on it! Been really impressed with not only Matt's ability but how he applies himself, Im sure he will be up there for the end of season individual awards

Ryan Cole (LB) - still haven't seen a winger outpace this boy and they had a very good right side winger, he goes past players with ease and what a delivery for our first goal, even dropped but into CB for the last 10 minutes of extra time.

Brad Gayer (CAM) - technically the most gifted football player on the football pitch, controlled much of the game with that magic left foot, delivered a delightful ball for Freedman's last minute equaliser



David Nezri (CM) - one of the best individual performances in his position that I have seen for many years. Countless tackles and interceptions breaking up the play in all areas of the pitch



Jake Dayan (M) - two great goals and an assist. A solid captain's performance. 

Eli Davila (M) - was everywhere on the pitch and really kept our team together.

Josh Levy (M) - did a perfect job at left-win. Any team would be begging for a performance like that



Daniel Sinclair (M) - a force to be reckoned with in the cup win over SHP



James Van Straten (RCB) - another outstanding game for JVS. Moved to a less familiar position in a more central role and put his body on line for them team, cleaning up in defence. Put it in 100 per cent thoughout the game

Gideon Gale (SW) - another player playing out of position, but Gale led from the back  in outstanding fashion. Read the game perfectly, directed the defence in a cool calm and collected manner, distributed well and cleaned up when needed

Sammy Assil (LWB) - played a more defensive role today and excelled with the ball at his feet. Outstanding runs down the pitch, linking up with his wingers and I genuinely lost count of how many times he put the ball through the legs of a Blancos player

Ben Rosen (CM) - outstanding performance, dictating the midfield of the game alongside Benzadon as well as creating and taking chances. An asset that will be sorely missed when he isn't around

Yoshua Benzadon (CM) - signed in pre-season didn't make his long awaited debut until Sunday. And what a debut it was. Linking up with Rosen incredibly well, creating chances for us and stopping Blancos chances, expect to see a lot more of him this season
