—————————————————-

GOALKEEPER
Dean Caplin (Oakwood B) – A clean sheet, which came as a result of him producing a few decent saves when the game was still in the balance

DEFENCE
Ryan Cole (Fairlop FC) – Defensively as solid as you get, nothing got past him and he was spotted on numerous occasions motoring down left wing
Ben Lauffer (Hendon United) – Returned to the team and showed all his class. Great on the ball, reads the game so well and along with Greg Corin, gave Brady no chances
Joel Barnett (Los Blancos) – Player-manager was first to every 50/50 and possessed an aura of calmness to Blancos which allowed them to win the tie
Ben Kon (Hendon United) – Didn’t put a foot wrong. A fantastically gifted player, manager says it’s “a pleasure to see him back playing for Hendon”

MIDFIELD
Matt Berkeley (Fairlop FC) – Absolutely magnificent throughout. Skilful throughout, was a bag of tricks throughout and a joy to watch
Joe Metliss (Real Hendon) – Stole the show for the Bees, controlled the game and was integral in their win
Ben Winters (Maccabi London Lions Blue) – Gave another tireless performance and rewarded by scoring an absolute worldie to tie the game 2-2 with ten minutes to play
Dan Ash (Oakwood B) – Described as being sensational on the right wing, knocked the ball about really well, beat his winger repeatedly and missed his customary chances

STRIKERS:
Oli Sade (Los Blancos) – His trickery, finishing and tireless running tied the Raiders back line in knots, was simply unplayable today and scored a Messi-esque goal!
Sam Hammerton (Maccabi London Lions White) – Superb performance up front, which was deservedly capped off by a goal

PLAYER-MANAGER OF THE WEEK:
Joel Barnett (Los Blancos)

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Ben Lauffer (Hendon United)
