The votes are in and have been counted. Without further delay, we can announce the August Players of the Month…… new signing Crossy takes the 1XI award, with a resurgent Pinners taking the 2XI award.
Here are what the managers had to say….
1XI – Matt Cross
Cubo’s new attacking signing has slotted straight into the preferred 4-3-3 formation, being a driving force in turning defence into attack – epitomised by his goal on the opening game of the season where he ran half the length of the pitch, knocked over 3 players and slotted coolly into the side of the net.
Unfortunately it only took 3 games before Crossy succumbed to the inevitable ‘Cubo Wedding Guest Virus’, so we’re looking forward to seeing him back in a baby blue shirt very soon.
2XI – Andrew Pinnington
With squad members old and new keen to impress the new Management team, it was last seasons ever present striker that has shone early. Returning to the fold looking like he’s had a strict summer diet and fitness programme Pinners has hit the ground running early.
A fantastic 45 minute cameo vs RBS, where it wasn’t just the goals that caught the eye, have been the deciding factor. Pinners worked back for the team, held the ball up well and showed the sort of strength, power and determination we need for our title hunt this season.
