This afternoon, the JD Welsh Premier League (JD WPL) announced the nominations for October’s Manager Of The Month (MOTM) and Player Of The Month (POTM) awards, with The New Saints represented in both categories.
Following an extremely successful month that saw the side register five wins and one draw in all competitions, it’s no surprise that Scott Ruscoe has made the MOTM shortlist, as The New Saints scored 23 goals with just two conceded.
Although having since slipped to third place in the JD WPL, come the end of October the current reigning champions were then leading the way.
Having enjoyed an excellent month on the pitch, it comes as no surprise to those of us who have seen him in action on a weekly basis that Aeron Edwards is in with the POTM contenders.
In particular, his brace of goals that helped sink Connah’s Quay Nomads at Park Hall on the 20th will stand out for many.
Also nominated are the following:
MOTM: Gavin Chesterfield (Barry Town United), Chris Hughes (Newtown AFC).
POTM: Luke Boundford (Newtown AFC), Robbie Patten (Barry Town United), Chris Venables (Bala Town).
You can vote via the JD WPL Twitter account up to 9.00 p.m. on Sunday, November 18. The winners will be announced early next week.
