JD WPL Manager And Player Of The Month Shortlists Announced

With the JD Welsh Premier League (JD WPL) Manager Of The Month and Player Of The Month shortlists announced this evening, we are honoured to have representation in both categories.

Scott Ruscoe once more finds himself in the managerial group of four, along with Huw Griffiths, Chris Hughes and Neville Powell.

A great start to the New Year saw The New Saints of Oswestry Town win all five games. Three JD WPL wins against Bala Town, Bangor City and Prestatyn Town along with Nathaniel MG Cup and JD Welsh Cup victories against Cardiff Metropolitan University FC and Caernarfon Town respectively puts Scott in a strong position.

The four nominated players are Neil Ashton, Toby Jones, Kieran Mills-Evans and our own Aeron Edwards. With some excellent performances – plus some key goals along the way – Aeron’s contribution to the team has been very important. Edwards scored in the games against Bangor City, Caernarfon Town and Prestatyn Town.

We wish them both the very best. Although the final decision is made elsewhere, there is a certain percentage of fans’ voting that counts. You can cast yours via the JD WPL Twitter account. Fans have until this Friday (February 16).
