The Final Team of The Weekend Is Confirmed!

By Sam Elliott

The final National League Team of the Weekend has been confirmed - but did we get the selection spot on?

There’s so much to consider when piecing together a side who have performed the best for their clubs on Saturday.

There’s no room for error - and that’s why we make sure we take the best advice possible before announcing the squad of 16 plus the day’s best manager.

We pick the brains of club officials, managers and reporters around the grounds to make sure our team is as close to perfect as possible.

But as well all know football is a game of opinions - we rarely all agree!

So join the debate on twitter @TheNationalLge and let us know if you think we’ve missed someone special.

Manager of the Weekend: Justin Edinburgh (Leyton Orient)
It’s not every day the manager of a team at the top gets this award for drawing at home to a side in the bottom four, but this was no normal weekend for Leyton Orient. Edinburgh kept faith with a squad who failed last season because he knew they had so much more to offer - how right he was.

Where next?
