Manager of the Month for October

The third series of the Ryman Football League Monthly Awards for season 2008/9, covering the month of October 2008, have been announced today as follows:

Wingate & Finchley F.C.
Division One South

The award for the "Team Performances of the Month" recognises a particularly noteworthy performance by a Club during the month from any of its first team matches in all competitions played, and October was another month dominated by the FA Cup and Trophy exploits of Ryman League teams.

AFC Hornchurch reached the First Round Proper of the FA Cup competition with a thoroughly well deserved 2-1 win away at Conference National Club Weymouth, to earn the Club the Premier Division Team Performance Award for October.

The Team Performance award for Division One North has been won by Wingate & Finchley Football Club. In the FA Trophy, the Blues not only had an impressive draw at home to Ryman Premier Division form team Ashford Town (Middx), but won the replay on the Tuesday evening with a stunning 4-2 victory to also win the Divisional award.

Twelve months ago Chipstead were playing in the Ryman Football League for the first time in their history. In October, having held Southern League side Atherstone Town to a draw on their opponents ground in the FA Cup, they clearly won the replay at home 3-0 to earn themselves a place in the Fourth Round Qualifying and a trip to Torquay United as their reward. As a result, Chipstead have won the Team Performance award for Division One South for October.

This season these awards are being sponsored by Vandanel Sport Limited, the League's Official Benchwear Supplier and Preferred Kit Supplier. As part of the sponsorship of these awards, Vandanel Sport will provide a 'Manager of the Month' trophy and Jacket for each Manager of the Month, and a trophy and £100 credit voucher for each Team of the Month.
