Congratulations to all students who have been nominated at the club they represent 'Player of the Half Term'.

Here, the coaches explain why they have chosen their respective students for their quality and attitude on the training pitch and their performances in the league and cup games over the last six/seven weeks.

ESPFA DERBYSHIRE (Belper Town Black)

"TAYLOR QUENBY has shown a real improvement over the past half term, specifically with his composure and finishing ability when in and around the box. This has shown in multiple matchdays that he’s scored in. Alongside this, Taylor is a great trainer and has shown he can take coaching points on well to improve his game. He always gives 100% in training and on a matchday and is a great player to have in the squad”

- Joe Czechowski

ESPFA DERBYSHIRE (Belper Town Yellow)

"EWAN SUTHERILL has been excellent for the team all season so far and has led the line really well providing numerous goals and assists! He is a constant attacking threat in behind and his hold up play is very good also bringing other players into the game. I’m looking forward to what he can achieve in the new year!"

- Carl Sheard


"DARRAGH O'CONNOR is a competitive player who wants to win and shows quality in possession with his long range passing and shooting. He shows the right attitude in training and wants to always improve."

- James Cliff


"My player of the half term goes to DANIEL DERAFSHI. Daniel has had a good half term on the pitch putting in some excellent performances, he’s starting to really understand what’s expected of him both in and out of possession. I’ve also been really impressed by Daniel’s work ethic and attitude towards training over the last several weeks."

- Luke Weatherall

ESPFA DERBYSHIRE (Borrowash Victoria)

"KAELIN COLE-TONKS has been a really important part of our success in games this half term, playing in different positions he has at times been our last defender, our holding midfielder and has played in various attacking roles. Kaelin has been directly involved with over half of our goals this half term, which shows the impact he has had on the pitch."

- Sam Elliott

ESPFA WEST MIDLANDS (Rushall Olympic Amber)

"RAHMANI HAMILTON always works hard and his one v one defending has been excellent this half term. His pace is a big asset and has been vital especially in his recovery runs."

- Steve Cooke

"PABLO PADIN AHANA is always on time gives, everything in training and is always wanting to learn. Pablo is always very helpful and is a pleasure to coach."
