Josh Cramer - hair like Daley Blind, footwork like Santi Cazorla. Fortunately not the other way round. Bossed the middle of the park with his touch and movement

Avi Kestenbaum - all over the pitch and unbeatable in the air
Joel Barnett - impressive defensive display keeping his team in the game with some last-ditch tackles 



David Brown (CB) - solid as ever, nothing got past him all game and almost scored with a thumping header.

Josh Marlow (CB) - calm and composed, his excellent passing often starting off attacks.

Dudi Edryei (CM) - despite turning up late (and being benched because of it!) Came on and showed real unselfish class. According to Opta, he had a 100 per cent pass rate and won every tackled he attempted. Assisted four

Leor Harel (CM) - protected the back four excellently and broke up Raider's play time and time again

Eli Shebson (RW) - really come out of his shell in the past three games and once again the opposition just couldn't handle him. Off the mark too with an excellent goal



Brandon Sassoon and Dan Stock (CB) - both completely shut down the Lions attack at important times

Josh Pugh (CM) - as playmaker in the absence of Elliot Espinoza he had time on the ball to do some great things and weighed in confidently with two goals

Josh Bharier (CM) - strong in the tackle and so hard to take the ball off Josh showed strength and character in the last third

Danny Sherman (S) - power and strength and superb hold up play bringing people into the game all the match and got on the score-sheet twice

Dan Green (HM) - if there is a better holding player on this sort of form at the moment then we'd like to see him. Strong on the tackle and a real ball winner

Adam Waters (D/GK) - started the game at full-back, he cut inside from the right and hit a ferocious bending piledriver Beyond the reach of the Lions keeper from 25 yards. He then went in goal and produced some top class saves at the other end to shut out the Lions strikers...



Scott Shear (GK) - one of his best performances in an RJC shirt. Two “world-class saves,” one at 1-0 down. Absolutely immense today, and the save at 1-0 was pinnacle in the victory today
Kane Hopps (CM) - worked very hard today. Owed to boys from last week red card. Scored and assisted today



Jordan Sharifian (S) - when you have players like Jordan there's always going to be chances, he can create out of nothing and did exactly that with three great goals, the first a contender for goal of the season



Richard Fogelman (S) - one of the calmest hat-tricks you'll see all season today ... in this form Jonti Aremband may as well give up on the Golden Boot



Connor Perl (S) - SPEC just couldn't cope with the movement and finishing of Connor, who terrorised them non-stop



Eitan Ben-Zion (CB) – his best performance of the season and with another new centre back partner

Gary Hill (CB) – came into the team and was a leader at the back, dominating and winning tackles and headers

Alex Brodkin (LB) – calm and assured from another second debutant

Michael Breslaw (CM) – superb. Covers an incredible amount of ground putting in tackles and recovering the ball

Eddie Sternberg (CM) – two goals from the new captain. The first one was a fantastic first-time finish, the second a poacher’s finish. Also his best performance of the season and was brilliant on the ball

Freddie Marks (RM) – like a player reborn. Unlucky to see a fantastic header cleared off the line but got forward well and also put in his best performance of the season



Adam Gold (CM) – was like a machine in the middle of the pitch and ran the game. Scored his first Raiders goal to cap off an amazing display

David Dinkin (S) – a welcome back in to the Raiders squad after a few weeks out. Grabbed his 92nd and 93rd goals for the club. Ran the line brilliantly and didn’t stop working for the team



Jono Gaon (CF) - four goals on his debut for Finchley and what a gem we have found. An absolute masterclass in finishing. Stunning performance

Sam Kanter (LB) - fantastic performance. Technically superb and scored arguably the goal of the season - right footy volley from 25 yards out straight into the top corner

Sam Leader (CAM) - dictated the tempo of the game - played the game at his own pace and was influential in all our attacks.

Eli Davila (DM) - won every tackle in midfield - strong in possession, covered every blade of grass and chipped in with an assist.

Barry David (REFEREE) - "flawless referee performance - the best we have seen all season"



Nick Shinder - a solid display with the icing of the final goal.
Daniel Goldhill (M) - marshalled the midfield and the base for Bilbaum attacks
Samuel Deaner - took his goal with aplomb to cap a combatant display
Jacob Brunner - two goals, and two assists and a constant threat
Benjamin Bell (S) - the hat-trick hero with three Vardy-esq goals
