Ben Zloof (S) - "not only a joy to play with, but a joy to watch. Cool and composed in front of goal, Zloof added another hat-trick to his tally. in truth he could have had 6!"


Tom Orr (RB) - bombed forward all game and was unlucky not to grab a goal himself
Dan Garsin (CM) - put his all into this performance, getting stuck in where needed
Dan Tanenbaum (RM) - looked a new player in this new position. Gave Hendon's left problems all game and was unlucky not to score
Ali Gordon (AM) - Norstar's driving force all game and capped the performance with a great headed goal


Ed Bloom (GK) - captain's performance great one and one saves and commanding from crosses
Simon Peterman (CM) - ran the show in midfield
Marc Harris (S) - two great goals and worked hard up front


Jon Ellis (CB) - led the team superbly and didn't miss one header or tackle all game
Josh Gordon (CM) - ran his socks into the ground and won the midfield battle (MOM performance)
Jordan Nathan (D) – 18-years-old and plays centre back like he is 28-years-old. Morrison winner in his first season and afraid of no-one. Strong, quick and intelligent. One of the team's players of the season
Josh Hershman (LM) – after missing a good opportunity early doors, he kept running at South Mancs throughout the second half and it was only a matter of time. Big goal, an absolute screamer on a big stage at the perfect time – essentially the match-winner


Alex Nadler (LB) – returning after a couple for months out – put in a strong performance always a danger gong forward and with his excellent distribution
Ari Last (CM) – kept driving his team forward until the last minute despite suffering badly with a knee injury – a great example to all


Nick Berman (LB) - capped off a fine defensive performance with his first goal for SPEC
Elliott Wallis (LM) - ran the Norstar defense ragged with his jinking runs and physical presence


Lewis Blitz (CB) - faultless at centre back in his last game before his wedding. Defended expertly and even ran the whole length of the pitch to have a huge hand in the all-important third goal
Josh Morris (RB) - impressive all-action display from right back. Scored his first for the club and was a constant threat
