Liam Walker – Europa FC (1st)

After finishing second in last week’s award, Walker ensured he took top spot this week scoring a hat-trick, and setting up two more as Europa found their form in the second half against a youthful Lions side.

Walker broke the 20-goal mark this season in getting his hat-trick, and is looking to catch up with St Joseph’s striker Juanfri in the top scorer charts – which would make him the first Gibraltarian since Lee Casciaro in 2015 to top the league’s scoring charts.

Juanfri – St Joseph’s (2nd)

Juanfri has constantly proven to be a match-winner for St Joseph’s, and when they found themselves 1-0 down to Magpies, and facing a threat to their second spot in the league, the Spanish striker stepped up once again, scoring twice to turn the game around and keep Saints five point gap from third.

The 30-year-old has proven to be one of the clubs smartest signings in recent years, and his goals will continue to win Saints games both domestically, and in European competition potentially.

Kike Gomez – Lincoln Red Imps (3rd)

Much like Juanfri, anyone who follows local football knows that Kike wins you games – he has done so for both Europa and Lincoln in the last few years. On Friday, his brace was instrumental as Lincoln broke down a stubborn Lynx side 3-1.

With the competition for attacking place at Lincoln being strong, Kike has firmly established himself as the main striker for the Red Imps, and at 25, the striker can only improve in the coming years.

Ethan Britto – Lincoln Red Imps (4th)

Britto has established himself into Lincoln’s first eleven this season, and his performances have also earned him a trial at Las Palmas this week. The teenager, who can operate at either left back or left wing, capped off a great Friday by opening the scoring, and generally being a threat on that wing.

Britto is showing good promise at this time, and having started Gibraltar’s last three internationals, he will also be looking to make a spot in Julio Ribas team his own for the upcoming friendlies this month, and going forward the Nations League in the autumn.

Ayoub El Hmidi – Mons Calpe (5th)

Ayoub scored two in Mons Calpe’s easy win over College last week to keep their six-point lead over Europa Point.

Despite his performances looking lethargic at times, the 19-year old has played a big part in his side’s unbeaten run in 2020.
