Lincoln Red Imps striker Enrique ‘Kike’ Gomez Bernal is awarded FG Player of the Week for his performance in their 5-1 win over Brunos Magpies.
Kike Gomez Bernal – Lincoln Red Imps (1st)
The first half especially saw Lincoln’s forwards tear through Magpies defence with great efficiency, and Kike was central to that, scoring twice in the first half to help Lincoln on their way to a 5-1 victory.
The striker looked understandably disappointed to be taken off when on a hat-trick, but with a key date vs his former club Europa on Saturday, Lincoln manager German Crespo was right to ensure he was kept fresh, and more importantly hungry for goals ahead of a massive top-of-the-table clash.
Manu Dimas – Europa FC (2nd)
Dimas continues leading the line for Europa while Adrian Gallardo recovers from injury and has done so very well. The first goal had a slice of luck about it but made no doubts about the second with an exceptional header and was a constant thorn in the Saints defence.
Escobar will be hoping he can continue this fine form into this weekend’s match against rivals Lincoln.
Jaydan Parody – Lynx FC (3rd)
After making his debut for Lynx in 2014/15, Jaydan fell off the radar. After joining Phoenix U23’s in 2018, he would sign for FC Olympique in January 2019 where he would be an instant impact and would later be rewarded with a deal at Lynx.
The 21-year old was instrumental in Lynx’s win over Lions – grabbing a goal and brought a fluidity to their play which they would later miss as Lions would later come back into the game after his substitution. If Jaydan continues to show these types of attributes then it won’t be long until he is rewarded with a spot in Julio’s squad.
Olmo Gonzalez Casado – Europa FC (4th)
Olmo has been one of Europa’s most consistent performers since joining the club in 2018. He’s flourished under his new defensive partnership and while Sergio Sanchez is scoring the goals, Olmo is more than happy to do the dirty work for his side.
The 32-year old put in one of his usual performances which we’ve come to expect from the experienced defender and did a great job of keeping the St Joseph’s attackers quiet throughout.
Ayoub El Hmidi – Mons Calpe (5th)
There were a few candidates for fifth place, but given Mons faced Manchester in what was the featured game of the Challenge Group, we’ve plumped for Ayoub El Hmidi, who scored a second-half brace to ensure Mons take seemingly full control of that group – they are six points clear of Europa Point at the ‘top’ of that group now.
The youngster may find himself disappointed not to be competing in the top six, but it could ultimately be a blessing in disguise – should he keep playing, and keep scoring in the Challenge Group, there’ll be eyes on the 19-year-old from bigger teams in the league.
