Lee Fegan (Temple Fortune A) – Produced two penalty saves – including one to take the tie into a shoot-out

Toby Levy (Oakwood A) – Covering for the injured Lee Warner, gave an excellent display and put in some great crosses
Ryan Kangisser (FC Team) – Was cool and clam throughout, and popped up with the winner to boot
Adam Hakimi (Redbridge A) – Played his first 90 minutes for a long time at the back and looked really comfortable
Aaron Luftig (Faithfold A) – Won every header, stopped all attacks that came his way and was excellent on the ball too

Ben Shirbini (Faithfold A) – Fought hard and won all his battles. His first touch and work-rate were outstanding, scoring one and assisting another
Dovi Vogel (Faithfold A) – Cleaned up everything in front of defence, kept things neat and tidy and Faithfold ticking
Ari Last (Hendon United) – Having played an uncharacteristic error in the first half, set the tone in the second, epitomising the competitive edge needed win the three points
Jordan Nathan (NL Raiders B) – Started through the middle, then became very effective down the right in the second half as Redbridge struggled to handle him

James Jaconelli (Fairlop FC) – Scored another hat-trick in the orange shirt, and at times was simply unplayable
Leor Sidle (Oakwood A) – Was back in the goals as he scored – what had been on the cards – another hat-trick

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”
