Rafi Marom (LM) - one assist and one goal, good performance
Ad Speck (LB) - not fully fit but played the 90, scored a cracker and was a good outlet on the left hand side of the back four


Josh Marlow (CB) - MOTM, was imperious
Dale Bradman (CM) - was great and barely put a foot wrong
Sefton Monk (CM) was a tower of strength
Faithfold's GK made three or four phenomenal saves


James Bell (GK) - stand-in keeper, who normally plays centre mid, communicated well with back 4 and made 2 crucial saves to keep a well earned clean sheet
Gid Chain (RB) - up and down the wing. Stuck into the left winger limiting chances. Big contribution to the clean sheet
Dave Prager (CB) - led the defence really well. Won every header and dominated the Jewdinese strikers
Ian Baron (CB) - made 2 or 3 brilliant last-ditch tackles and his pace at the back kept us in the game
Josh Lewis (LB) - put in some dangerous crosses and set pieces. Limited the right winger to a few crosses and didn't let much get past him


Lorian Madanes (M) - best player on the pitch against Lions Green


Sam Castle (CB) – made several last-ditch tackles, won every header at the back and was unlucky not top score a couple of headers from set-pieces at the other end. His best performance of the season
Joel Alterman (LM) – making his debut, slotted into the team effortlessly and looked like he has been a regular in the side. Didn’t misplace a pass and was the catalyst for several attacks
Joey Lazare (S) – scored a delightful couple of goals and was unlucky not to grab a hat-trick. Has been excellent for a few weeks and we expect to see his form continue
James Gershfield (S) – three goals from the best striker in the league, always takes chances if they are presented to him and if they aren’t, he will create them himself which he showed on Sunday


Dan Kosky (GK) made two stunning saves against Boca, unfortunately for him we are getting used to it but the Boca players were in awe. In my opinion the best keeper in this division by far and one of the best in the league - a definite contender for keeper of the year - a model of consistency


Oli Nathan (AM) - put in another fantastic shift and rewarded with two excellent goals. Instrumental in all of Norstar's attacking play
Alex Sherr (RB) - asked to fill in in a position he's not played in before. Put in a fantastic shift, up and down the right flank all game
Marc Woolfe (GK) - playing in net for the first time in years, pulled off some fantastic saves, commanded his area fantastically and superb distribution throughout


David Khalastchi (D) - a typically energetic performance, up and down the left channel, caused real problems in the first half and added a great goal
Luke Brookner (M) - ran the game in midfield, efficient on the ball and tireless work-rate
