—————————————————-

GOALKEEPER:
James Harpin (London Lions B) – Only 17 years old and outstanding every week. Made a terrific save from a bullet Redbridge shot from the edge of the area

DEFENDERS:
Ashley Hirschberger (Hertswood Vale) – Despite nursing a hangover, put in a solid shift at left-back, before moving into the centre of the defence during the second-half
Alex Rosenthal (Hendon United A) – Was back to his assured best as he produced a faultless defensive performance
Simon Fox (SPEC) – Part of a brilliant defensive rearguard for SPEC as they kept the Lions strikeforce mainly at bay to earn a deserved point
Ricky Zeiderman (NL Raiders C) – Solid at the back and always offered a threat going forward as team ended season with an impressive point

MIDFIELDERS:
James Berkley (Redbridge A) – Adding end product to his all-round game as shown by his two goals against Team, so under rated, but not by the RJC management
Nick Phillips (Mill Hill Dons) – Captain scored and got an assist, continues to run the midfield for The Dons and showed his creative side
Brett Stead (Temple Fortune) – Drove Fortune forward, didn’t stop running and capped a brilliant performance with a goal
Daniel Selwyn (Oakwood B) – Continuously got in good wide positions and deserved a goal for his good play

STRIKERS:
Jono Gaon (Finchley City)Wasn’t 100 percent fit, only played the second half and was still completely unplayable. A sensational performance, with top-class finishing
Louie Libbert (Los Blancos) – Scored an excellently taken hat-trick, strong and powerful, is proving to be an excellent late addition to Blancos’ squad

PLAYER-MANAGERS OF THE WEEK:
Ricky Lawrence (SPEC)

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Harry Graham (Hertswood Vale)

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
