Russell Corin (Hendon United A) – Had to come on with a badly bruised finger and a hamstring injury but still pulled off some excellent saves

Sean Ladier (Blizzard Storm) – Put in another performance of the highest standard at full-back as Storm claimed an impressive point
Jordan Sapler (Redbridge B) – Imperious at the heart of the Redbridge defence. Didn’t put a foot wrong against treble holders, with his manager believing he’s the best in the business
Jordan Freedman (Jewdinese) – Another brilliant performance, made no mistakes and dealt with his defensive duties against a strong side
Luke Roback (KS Reunited) – Excellent performance at right-back, strong in the tackle and didn’t give the winger a sniff

Rob Cohen (AC Whetstone) – Was described as majestic as he showed why he’s such a great player. Two goals was just reward for a brilliant display
Richard Winton (AC Mill Hill) – Ran his socks off for the team, worked tirelessly for 90 minutes and set up side’s third goal
Connor Perlmutter (Maccabi London Lions Blue) – Lively and a constant threat throughout, scored a stunning hat-trick, including a quite brilliant 25-yard inch-perfect lob
Yoram Goodman (Shacharit Donetsk) – Heroic, hard-working and intelligent as a defensive midfielder in Donetsk’s win over Hendon

James Gershfield (Harmen) – League’s joint-top scorer was at it again, this time in the cup as he blew Fortune away with a five-goal salvo – including a first-half hat-trick
Jake Gilbert (Norstar London Raiders B) – Raiders’ prolific frontman scored a second successive hat-trick, this time including a breathtaking effort

Darren Lawrence (Jewdinese)

Connor Perlmutter (Maccabi London Lions Blue)

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
