Having covered the achievements of players in the Manchester Accountants League from September through to May, Darren Witcoop names his top XI.


- DAN GARMEN (AFC Flixton) - "Mr Dependable, loud, brash mad, when we have a corner he walks up to half-way line to have a chat with the opposition’s centre forward"


- ADAM TAUBER (AFC Flixton) - "captain, great ball-winner, good going forward, inspirational leader on and off the pitch"

- MARK STEWART (South Manchester 1st) - "oozes experience at international and domestic level. With age not on his side, Mark has rolled back the years this season and proven to be a vital part of the South team"

- ADAM STEVENS (Manchester Maccabi 1st) - Scored a number of important goals and unhinged defences to slip in his team-mates to score. A man for the big occasion

- FELIX SHALOM (South Manchester 1st) - "whipper-snapper, best trainer in the club (until David Flax returns from Israel). Great first season in the first team"

- MARK BELL (Manchester Maccabi 1st) - about power-house didn't put a foot wrong all season to steer his team to the double


- SAM HATTON (Manchester Maccabi 1st) - A real eye for goal who came to the fore towards the end of the season by weighing in with vital goals

- BEN GOULD (Manchester Maccabi 2nd) - A key cog in Greg Louca's engine with his tireless running. Popped up with vital goals to keep Manchester Maccabi 2nd in title mix
