Your National League Team Of The Weekend Confirmed

By Sam Elliott

Some of the players still purring from a good first day at the office now have an extra reason to be happy.

The official National League Team of the Weekend is out - the 11 starters, five subs and the top manager from the opening day has been picked.

We talk to those involved directly in the game to make sure our select side is on the money.

Managers, club officials and journalists help us to cobble together a team to be proud of.

Barnet’s Daniel Sweeney was excellent at Aldershot and talking of good defenders, Leyton Orient’s Josh Coulson was Man of the Match at Salford City and can’t be ignored.

Chesterfield’s superb win at fancied Ebbsfleet came thanks to Charlie Carter’s classy display and the top boss is someone making his National League bow.
