Matt Berkley (RM) - two very composed finishes. An impressive performance



James Abrams (CAM) - Playing in his preferred No. 10 position he scored two good goals. One a good hit from outside the area and the other was a close range header.

Dan Selwyn (M) - Some beautiful crossing and passing today. Kept his assist tally ticking over. Mercurial best



Dovi Vogel - played CB CM and RB all in the same game, grabbed the first with a deft finish and assisted the second with a lovely ball over the top that was finished from the edge of the box with a pinpoint chip over the GK and into the far top corner

Daniel Ezra (RWB) - was solid from start finish both in defence and attack

Aaron Luftig (CB) - solid performance from Tiggy, tidy in possession and wasn't beaten once

David Brown (CB) - a true warrior, puts in 100 every game and always delivers

Josh Marlow (CB) - improving with every match and had another outstanding game today



Yossi Lanning - (GK - MOTM) saved a penalty and made a couple of other brilliant saves. Was commanding on crosses and displayed one of the best goalkeeping performances we have seen all season.

Oli Sade (S) - magician on the ball. Assisted two goals. Worked extremely hard off the ball and influential in all our attacks.

Daniel Sinclair (D) - rock at the back. Another flawless performance.

Josh Aziz (M) - superb game. Leader on and off the pitch. Covered every blade of grass and dominated the midfield

Dale Bradman (D) – solid and played his part in the best defence in the league. Yet another clean sheet

Brad Wine (LM) – unplayable. The Woodford right back must need a long rest after Brad's powerful and unstoppable display on the right-hand side

Daniel Harrod (LM) - vintage performance from the Brady captain with 3 assists from the left-hand side of midfield



Jonny Mervish (GK) - not having made a competitive start for nearly three years, Mervish came into the side and pulled off some unbelievable quality saves to keep Scrabble in the tie, including a stunning double save a minute from time

Brandon Sassoon (CB) - another top-quality defensive performance from Brandon who also popped up in attack late in the game set up a thrilling finish with Scrabble's second goal

Dan Stock (CB) - playing out of position was like a rock at the heart of the Scrabble defence and along with Brandon coped so well with one of the most pacey and skilful attacking threats in the league from the Finchley strikers

Danny Sherman (S) - top quality show from Danny playing as a lone target man with his back to goal and spent 90 minutes holding up the ball so well and brought his midfielders into the game with his distribution

REFEREE - Andy Myerson - kept the game flowing and controlled the game so well in difficult conditions and spot on with his decisions
