—————————————————-

GOALKEEPER:
Jake Doffman (NL Raiders A) – Produced an incredible save that would be admired at even the highest level of football to keep Raiders 1-0 up and send them on their way to victory

DEFENDERS:
Andy Cohen (NL Raiders C) – Great shift at left-back, which was topped off by scoring a lovely cushioned header
Max Foster (Manchester Maccabi) – Manchester’s man-of-the-match, was outstanding and produced an outstanding block-sliding tackle in a bullish performance
Dale Bradman (Oakwood A) – A rock at the back for Oakwood, was fundamental as they came out on top in the clash of the top flight’s top-two
Jonti Aremband (RC UK FC) – For most of the game was played out of position at right-back, nothing got past him and was also a huge threat going forward

MIDFIELDERS:
Josh Bharier (Scrabble) – Gave a great example of power and pace when running with the ball from midfield and then scored a goal-of-the-season contender
Michael Stratton (South Manchester Maccabi) – Captain of the club led by example and ran the game in the middle of the park
Michael Woolf (Temple Fortune) – Controlled the game, in both screening the defence and starting attacks. Read the game beautifully
Josh Cohen (Hertswood Vale) – Productive morning down the right flanks which saw him score twice – one a contender for goal of the week

STRIKERS:
Zach Cohen (Mill Hill Dons) – Four goals, plus assists saw him turn in the perfect performance. Caused the Catford defence all manner of problems for the entire 90 minutes
Saul Shapiro (South Manchester Maccabi) – Scored South’s second and third goal to take the tie into a penalty shoot-out – before he scored the winning kick

MANAGERS OF THE WEEK:
Ric Blank & Daniel Kristall (Oakwood A)

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Saul Shapiro (South Manchester Maccabi)
