5 ELITE SUNDAY LEAGUE STRIKERS

Written by Ricky Carroll


1) ZAK ANSAH - SE DONS

What can you say about the SE Dons talisman - he's the complete striker. Zak is a joy to watch. He's lethal in front of goal - brilliant at dropping into little pockets of space and linking up with the midfield. His movement is one of his best assets and makes him hard to mark for the opposition. He's a leader on the pitch - and a massive part of the success at SE Dons.

2) ANTHONY WEIR - BICKLEY

Anthony Weir, AKA Beaver, is a Sunday league legend - and the talisman for OBDSFL team Bickley. Every year the opposition keep hoping its Beavers last year. He keeps coming back as lethal as ever. He scores all kinds of goals and is a striker you can silence for 89 minutes. But if you give him one chance, he will punish you. Beaver has been an integral part of Bickley's success over the years. Despite the OBDSFL, now arguably being its most competitive - Anthony Weir is showing class is permanent with nine goals in 14 games so far this season.


3) ALEX TENIOLA - BAITEZE SQUAD

The phrase big game, big player has a picture of Teniola next to it. He's a manager's dream - a vital presence in the squad motivating his teammates - but he's a huge personality on the pitch. You can see he loves playing upfront leading the line. Teniola has proven time and time again - he has that killer instinct every striker wants and needs. He's a threat whenever he steps on that pitch. What time is it? It's Teniola time!


4) SHOMARI BARNWELL - BAITEZE SQUAD

Bully boy Sham arrived in Sunday league football with a bang in pre-season when he tormented Se Dons with his movement, direct running and eye for goal. Many people talk about Shomari and his physicality - but he's very comfortable with the ball at his feet - and has shown he can play out wide and link up effectively with Teniola. Sham is a physical threat and can bully defenders for 90 minutes. But he's very clever with his movement - and has shown he is deadly when given the service.

5) ASA MILLIARD- KITCHENER FC

Asa has everything you want in a striker. He can play with his back to goal as a target man and pin defenders back with his strength. Asa is also comfortable running in behind, which is a vital weapon for Kitch to have when they need a goal - they can knock it in behind the opposition defence for Asa to chase. He is very effective in the number 10 role where he can drop in deep to link the play up - much like Zak Ansah.
