My First XI 21-22: Wayne Southby

By Ian Townsend

Hastings United fan Wayne brings us his pick of the Pitching In Isthmian South East

We've been asking our supporters to pick the best eleven players they've watched in their Division over the course of the season, and as a fan of the champions, Wayne has certainly seen no shortage of fantastic football.

1 Louis Rogers (Hastings united)

Safest hands in Sussex. He's been excellent for us all season, pulling off some fantastic saves.

2 Tariq Ossai (Ashford United). Always gives 100% and knows his role.

3 Mamadou Diallo (Ashford United) powerful, excellent football brain.

4 Finn O'Mara (Hastings United)

I call him the tank! as he always gets that ball before anyone else. He's a proper unit.

5 Craig Stone (Hastings United)

It's a no brainer- Fin and Craig at the back.

6 Josh Spinks (Burgess Hill Town)

Played well against Hastings. Another strong player.

7 Anthony Edgar (Cray Valley PM)

When we played the Millers he was the stand out player in my eyes.
Fast/strong/skillful, he should be playing a lot higher.

8 Hassan Ibrahym (Cray Valley) PM

I had to pick Hass, this player you would love to have in your team. He's down to earth and excellent football player, bloody skillful too.

9 Zac Ansah (Herne Bay)

Zac is definitely a proper goalscorer and a proper threat up top. His work rate is exceptional.

10 Jamie Splatt (Whitehawk)

When we played against him he looked very agile and pacy.

11 Youssef Bamba ( VCD Athletic)

Always a handful when Hastings play against him. Yet another pacy player and so skillful on the ball.
