Written by Ricky Carroll


1) JUEVAN SPENCER- GRAND ATHLETIC

When talking about elite Sunday league full-backs - Juevan Spencer has to be included in any conversation. He is an attacking right back with plenty of experience. He isn't afraid to bomb forward - and link up with attacking players and get crosses in the box. Aside from his attacking abilities, Juevans defensive capabilities - cannot be overlooked. Last season he was solid defensively for Grand Athletic and a real problem for the opposition when he went forward. Juevan has proven himself time and time again to be a problem when he ventures forward - he's brilliant at linking up with teammates and overlapping and whipping dangerous balls in the box. Juevan is without a doubt one of the best full-backs in Sunday league football.


2) BRADLEY - UNDER THE RADAR FC

Bradley gives you everything you want from a full-back. He's lightning-quick, reads the game well and loves to get forward. Bradley is a nightmare for any winger - no matter how good they think they are. Bradley's pace and ability to read the game - are vital weapons for UTR. He has used his pace - on countless occasions to sweep up at the back for them. Bradley has played 19 games this season and has been an integral part of UTRs success. He's a vital component of the current squad. Many will identify him as the modern-day full-back - who is fast and loves to get forward. Bradley is so much more than that. He loves a 50/50, and more than that - he's UTR through and through.


3) MATTY PARSONS- SE DONS

Matty Parsons has been an integral part of SE Dons since his arrival. His experience playing for Crystal Palace, Barnet and Plymouth has shone through in his performances for the Dons. He is solid defensively, and his reading of the game - ensures he is hard to get past. His defensive ability was never more noticeable than during the Dons league winning 2020-21 season when he was a vital part of the SE Dons watertight back four - alongside Joe Denny, RJ and SK. Matty is equally impressive attacking - as he is defending. He is a vital weapon for the Dons when attacking. Matty Parsons often overlaps the SE Dons winger and gets to the bye-line, which is an impressive weapon for the Dons to have. He also popped up and scored vital goals for the Dons - none more so than when he scored a goal in each game during a tough doubleheader against Groundhoppers in the 2020-21 season.


4) LLOYD CLARK- KITCHENER FC

But playing right-back is where Lloyd shines. He has everything you want from a right-back. Lloyd has pace to burn - and an abundance of skill - and is exciting to watch. He's always looking to run with the ball - and is forward-thinking, making him a delight to watch. In addition to his plethora of attacking talent, he is also comfortable when he has to defend. Lloyd's tenacity and reading of the game make him the perfect right-back - as he's solid defensively and utterly brilliant going forward.
