Adam Zaidman (NL Raiders A) – Kept a well-deserved clean sheet. Great distribution and made a great save in the first half to keep the score at 1-0

Nicky Cooper (Bayern Mincha) – Played full-back and on the wing, came on as a super sub in the second half and made all the difference helping to keep his side in the title race
Josh Wagner (Faithfold A) – Faithfold’s man-of-the-match, won all of his battles and scored a classy goal which edged him ahead of his partner Johnny Gahan
Doron Shooter (Real Hendon) – Formed an excellent partnership with Martin Smulovitch as they dealt with the Rory Delap-esque FC Team long throws
Richard Stern (Redbridge B) – Stood out at right-back for his side, solid defensively and offered a threat going forward

Jono Gaon (London Lions Blue) – Produced a tireless performance, which was rewarded with two scoring well-taken goals
Josh Wood (Hertswood Vale) – Continues to lead the side, produced an assist of the highest quality and defensively, won challenge after challenge
Louie Libbert (Oakwood B) – Recently moved down from Manchester, and fitting into his new surroundings, as put on a starring show
Josh Pugh (Scrabble) – Captain once again led the side superbly and got on the scoresheet to boot

Jake Gilbert (NL Raiders B) – His hat-trick was a lesson in finishing, but he did plenty of work off the ball for the team too, was a nightmare for the opposition right-back
Brad Wine (Oakwood A) – Was superb, leading from the front, and pulled his team through to help earn them a point

Daniel Shafron (NL Raiders A)

Nicky Cooper (Bayern Mincha)

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”
