Sam Roth - great performance again at right back. Strong in every tackle
Zack Neiman (S) - scored in his fifth game in a row and was unlucky not to grab a hat-trick


Ben Sollosi (CM) - on a pitch not made for our brand of Football, Ben played to the conditions and drove the team forward like a man possessed
Matt Niman (CB) – he hasn’t played since going up to University and has never played centre back before but he was dominant from the off and alongside captain for the day, Jordan Sapler, he was a level above
Ryan Cole (M) - yet again, he had a hand in two goals, a brilliant cross from the first and a great through ball for the 2nd. He is Mr Consistency and consistently good


Adam Arnold (LW) – was at his unplayable best and capped it all off with two magical solo goals
Elliott Stern (RW) – welcomed back into the team and produces a top-class performance
Sam Castle (S) – won every header against South Manchester two centre halves and did the dirty work for his partner in crime Gersh to flourish
Aviel Schwarz (CM) – was class throughout the game, with his energy you wouldn’t know that he is in his 50s, pressed well and did not misplace a pass all game


Ed Bloom (GK) - kept his team in the game against Hendon with some miraculous saves
Zack Rose, Thomas Priars (both ML Lions A) - produced "class" performances
James Gold (S) - worked hard against Hendon


Ben Law (GK) - some great saves to keep his team ahead, including one from the penalty spot
Josh Bentley (CB) - outstanding and so cool on the ball and in the air at the heart of the Scrabble defence
Josh Flax (CM) - doesn't stop running and chasing for 90 minutes and scored a superb goal


Adam Poole, Dave Green (CB) - were immense against Sosobad


Dan Rose (CM) – won everything in the middle of the park


Ben Polak (CB) - Benjamin doesn't love playing at CB, but he did another excellent job in the role against Catford
Dan Ash (CM) - back to his best after two months out and added aggression, skill and pace to the midfield. Survived a very very late illness scare to make it
Bobby Abrams (F) - four well-taken goals and plenty of movement up top. Five goals now since returning to the Oaks


Mark Singer (M) - captain, midfielder legend ... ran his socks off for 90 minutes and was extremely unlucky to be on the losing side


Oli Nathan (CM) - completely dominated the game from central midfield and pulled the strings throughout
Charles Braunstein (CB) - dominant as usual and didn't let the opposition centre backs get anywhere near to the Orange net
Adam Leveson (CB) - continues to roll back the years with another stellar performance, described by a teammate as a revelation in recent weeks


Sam Deaner (CB) - Powerful display assured the clean sheet and opened up the play from the back
Mark Pasha (LB) - driving forward throughout the game causing mayhem
Josh Pugh (CM) - hat-trick hero and dominated the midfield throughout
Jacob Holder (LW) - four-goal salvo, numerous assists and the standout performance of the game!
