David Simnock (Norstar London Raiders B) – Took the captain’s armband and led by example, made two stunning stops to ensure side came away with win

James Taylor (Faithfold A) – A rock in the Faithfold defence, was pivotal as ten-man Greens upset the odds to beat FC Team
Ezekiel Jacob (Hendon United B) – Stood strong when put under pressure, and was integral to Hendon’s somewhat shock win over Faithfold
Jake Yudelowitz (Norstar London Raiders C) – Another superb defensive performance. Made some crucial interceptions and organised the defence well.
Adam Blin (Oakwood B) – A right-back playing right midfield. A goal, an assist, up and down the right flank all game. Tireless and a man mountain, didn’t deserve to lose.

Dan Alfreds (FC Team C) – Played a part for every single goal and his corner delivery was superb
Oli Henry (Blizzard Storm) – Two goals put pay to title chasers Redbridge, his second a stunning effort direct from the kick-off
Avi Korman (Hendon United A) – Scored an unbelievable equaliser to cap yet another brilliant midfield display – well on course for young player of the year
Richard Alexander (L’Equipe) – A brilliant all-round performance back in the heart of the L’Equipe midfield, covered every bit of ground and could barely move after the game

Connor Perlmutter (London Lions Blue) –Youngster turned in a mature performance – capped off by netting a match-winning hat-trick
Adam Ellis (Shacharit Donetsk) – Grabbed a match-winning hat-trick to stun title-chasing King Crown

Avi Korman (Hendon United A)

Simon Linden (Blizzard Storm)

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”
