MOTM and POTM
March 6, 2015
Many congratulations to Darrell Clarke.
He has been announced as the Vanarama Conference Premier Manager of The Month for February 2015.
Intriguingly, the Barnet manager, Martin Allen, has failed to win the MOTM award even once this season.
Darrell Clarke has been named as Manager Of The Month for the third time this season.
In September, Bristol Rovers lost 2-0 at Braintree before winning 5 consecutive games.
Darrell won the award in September because BRFC won 5 consecutive matches followed by an Eastleigh draw.
In December two away draws were followed by the 3 league victories against serious promotion challengers.
Even though the Romans came, saw and conquered this did not impact on the Manager of The Month process.
Now another 5 consecutive victories have been achieved in February 2015 the decision was not so challenging.
The Player Of The Month was probably more of an issue.
Congratulations also go to Jai Reason of Eastleigh as Vanarama Conference Premier Player Of The Month.
Meanwhile, over at Weston-Super-Mare, Jamie Lucas on loan from Bristol Rovers……
He is the Vanarama Conference South Player Of The Month for February 2015.
Very Well Done Jamie.
His hat-trick last weekend in the 4-3 away victory was the attention grabber for the judges.
The official award panel had this to say:
“Amongst a number of top candidates nominated for the Vanarama Conference South award in February, when a player scores goals it is not too surprising for the said player to catch the attention of fans and the media.
When the player scores a hat-trick it is even more eye catching. Add to that doing it on opposition turf and then the bonus of scoring them all inside 11 minutes and from open play, that really should be worthy of special recognition.
Added to that individual achievement away at Bishops Stortford, Jamie Lucas assisted his club almost single handedly to move further away from the perils of relegation, encapsulating a very good month for the Seagulls on the field.”
