October Fair Play Awards

By Alan Allcock

Premier Division - Mickleover Sports, First Division North - Lancaster City, First Division South - Hucknall Town.

The Fair Play awards for October have gone to MICKLEOVER SPORTS, LANCASTER CITY and HUCKNALL TOWN respectively.

The Premier Division monthly table resulted in a tie between Mickleover and Northwich Victoria who both had five cautions in four games during the month. On the basis of the next two judging criteria, Technical Area marks and the season’s overall record, Mickleover just nudged out Vics to the award.

It was even tighter in the First Division North where Lancaster City made it three monthly awards out of three and the current holders of the FA’s National Fair Play award are certainly taking the responsibility that award brings with it very seriously indeed setting a tremendously high standard as they try and retain the award next May. They had just two cautions in four games in the month and one third of the way through the campaign have incurred just four cautions in Evo-Stik games.

The Dolly Blues did have a stiff challenge from Woodley Sports who themselves have a very impressive record of only five league cautions up to the end of October which would see them lead in either of the other two Divisions. Woodley, along with Witton Albion, made it a three way tie for the October monthly award as all three only had two cautions in the four games each played during the month. However, Lancaster’s Tech Area marks were 100% perfect just edging out Witton and Woodley with the three clubs, not surprisingly, occupying the top three slots in the Division’s season to date tables with £1000 on offer to the winners next May.

It was a more clear cut decision in the First Division South where HUCKNALL TOWN took the prize for October with three cautions in five games during the month. This was a marked improvement on their early season discipline and sees them move up to fourth place in the overall season table.

Each team will receive an award of a 1.5 litre bottle of Famous Grouse Whiskey. Mickleover Sports will receive their award on Saturday 5th November prior to the kick off of their home fixture versus Whitby Town. Lancaster City will receive their award on the 12th November prior to their home game versus Skelmersdale United whilst on the same day Hucknall Town will be presented before their Lincoln United home fixture.
