National League North Manager & Player of the Month awards

Boston United

Manager of the Month

Craig Elliott – Boston United

New Boston United boss Craig Elliott could not have asked for a better start to life in sixth-tier football.

Maximum points during December saw the Pilgrims move out of the relegation zone and seven places up the Vanarama National League North table.

Elliott’s side showed great resilience to earn two wins at home to Southport and York City after going behind.

The year ended with two further victories against Alfreton Town and Gainsborough Trinity- sid

es they’d leapfrogged during the impressive start to the new regime- to receive a well-deserved Manager of the Month award.

Player of the Month

Tom Greaves – FC United of Manchester

Few have been able to master the Player-Manager role, but FC United of Manchester’s Tom Greaves seems to be doing just that.

During his first full month in charge since taking over permanently from Karl Marginson, Greaves led his side to three points in matches against the top two in the division, scoring the winning goal in both matches.

December also saw the 32-year-old bring up his century of goals for the club, becoming the Club’s record goalscorer in the process.

An unbeaten month against four of the clubs in the top six will give Greaves confidence his side can pick up points against anyone in the Vanarama National League North.
