Hornchurch and Haringey Borough were both well represented in the 2017/18 Bostik North Team of the Season, which was revealed at the Bostik AGM on Saturday.

Division champions Urchins and play-off winners Borough made up five of the 11 selected with the north Londoners having three players included.

Haringey top goalscorer Ralston Gabriel led the line for the XI with club team-mates and full-backs Michael O’Donoghue and David Olufemi selected.

Left-back O’Donoghue and right-back Olufemi were joined in the 2017/18 Bostik North Team of the Season by Hornchurch centre back Nathan Cooper and goalkeeper Sam Mott showing the solidness of both back fours.

Although Mott has since departed Bridge Avenue, Cooper is still part of Jimmy McFarlane’s squad and will aim to show he can handle life in the Bostik Premier next season.

Gabriel, O’Donoghue and Olufemi are all understood to still be at Borough too, so they will aim to make the step up in the 2018/19 campaign.
