Jake Sanders (Fairlop) – Made two word class saves at pivotal points during the game, as well as a fantastic stop in the penalty shoot-out

Ben Cherkas (North London Raiders B) – Stepped in at short notice for his first appearance, won everything in the air, didn’t miss a tackle, was a threat going forward and scored
David Rhodes (NL Raiders A) – Captain fantastic, won everything and didn’t put a foot wrong all game
Adam Morrow (Mill Hill Dons) –Defensively solid throughout and he played a crucial role in Harry Moss’ goal with a superb pass
Josh Pistol (North London Raiders A) – Had an unbelievable game, won his battles defensively and didn’t stop getting forward to join in the attacks

Sam Leader (Bayern Mincha) – Scored twice, the first of which was a screamer and ended up putting in a match winning performance
Bradley Gayer (Fairlop) – A true captain’s performance, led by example, his work rate was magnificent and his 40-yard shot/lob almost won his side the tie
Adam Goldman (Fairlop) – Showed once again terrific energy and fitness, including a great run and dribble to win a penalty

Zac Lewis (Hendon United) – Scored another fantastic hat-trick, worked really hard when not in possession, was a danger throughout and had a first class work rate
Moses Seitler (Hendon United) – Another superb display from a brilliant talented young player, who works hard for his team mates and in full flow is close to impossible to stop
Zach Cohen (Mill Hill Dons) –Back to his very best, was simply unplayable, his four goals a good reflection on how well he played

Zac Lewis (Hendon United)

Aaron Dias (Fairlop)

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”
