January Reward for Bulls Boss!
Hereford United boss Martin Foyle has been named the ‘Manager of the Month’ for January in The Skrill Premier. Foyle’s side remained unbeaten during the period with two wins and two draws from four league matches. All achieved against the backdrop of financial worries off the pitch. The Bulls started off with a draw at pre-season favourites Forest Green Rovers in front of the BT Sport cameras. That was followed by home wins over Southport and Salisbury City. They ended the month with a 1-1 draw at home to FA Cup heroes Kidderminster Harriers.
Barrow AFC’s Darren Edmondson is The Skrill North ‘Manager of the Month’ for January. The former Workington boss was handed the Holker Street hot seat in December and he took hardly any time to produce results. That was summed up by their phenomenal January record where a 100% record was achieved despite some tough away fixtures. Edmondson’s side conceded just two goals during the period and won away at promotion chasers Brackley Town and AFC Telford United.
Paul Doswell from Sutton United is The Skrill South ‘Manager of the Month’ for January. A weather beaten reduced programme in the division saw Sutton win both of their matches. Doswell’s side won away at Basingstoke and Chelmsford without conceding a single goal. The valuable six points consolidating United’s position in the play-off places.
Marvellous Maddison on Target for the Heed!
Gateshead FC winger Marcus Maddison is The Skrill Premier ‘Player of the Month’ for January. Maddison scored four goals in six matches as Gary Mills’ side stayed unbeaten. The Heed kept up their promotion hopes with Maddison on target in the games against FC Halifax, Hyde, Grimsby and Welling. He also contributed two assists.
Ricky Miller of Boston United is The Skrill North ‘Player of the Month’ for January. Miller hit an incredible nine goals for the Pilgrims as they kept up their outside chances of promotion. He scored hat-tricks in the wins over Solihull Moors and Workington, a brace in the defeat at Hednesford and started the month with a goal in the 5-2 win over Vauxhall Motors.
New Dover Athletic signing Jeff Goulding has been named The Skrill South ‘Player of the Month’ for January. Goulding made an immediate impact for the Whites with a hat-trick on his debut at Dorchester. Chris Kinnear’s team winning 4-0. He also scored a brace in the 2-2 draw at Boreham Wood.
