Bostik League confirms new sponsor and announces first Performance of the Month Award winners

The Isthmian League has announced that the 2017/18 Performance of the Month Awards and end of season Fair Play Awards will be sponsored by Betting.net, a brand new online sports predictions, news and tips platform.

The awards will now be known as the “Betting.net Performance of the Month Awards” and the “Betting.net Fair Play Awards.”

Isthmian League Chairman, Nick Robinson said:

“The League is delighted to be working with Betting.net in rewarding Performances of the Month.

“In particular, we are pleased that this award is to be judged not just on a Club’s performance but can be awarded for an individual player’s performance as well.  Betting.net have shown that they want to deal with all participants and we share that vision.

“As part of the sponsorship we will be promoting not just the Performances of the Month but also an end of Season Fair Play Award for the best Clubs in each division so Betting.net will be seen to support good performances and fair play.”

A spokesperson for Betting.net said:

“We are extremely pleased to be involved with the Isthmian League and the many historic clubs that compete throughout the various divisions. We are huge fans of Non League football and can’t wait to see how this season unfolds.”

Founded in 1905, the Isthmian Football League represents football in its purest form and has over 70 teams competing throughout its 3 divisions; The Bostik Premier, North and South league.

The first winners of the Awards for the 2017-2018 season are:

Bostik Premier

The winners in this division are Hendon FC for their 6 – 0 victory over Harrow Borough on Bank Holiday Monday when the Borough were protecting a 100% record in the Premier Division.

The performance was also exceptional for a hat-trick scored by Niko Muir.

Bostik North

The winners in this division are Heybridge Swifts for their Bank Holiday Derby victory over neighbours Maldon and Tiptree by 5 goals to Nil.

This was in front of a crowd of 329, which was the best Derby crowd they have had for many years.

The victory followed a 5 – 1 victory at Romford earlier in the month as well as a 6 – 1 win in a preliminary round FA Cup replay.

Bostik South

The winner of this award is Alex Teniola of Thamesmead Town for his scoring feats for the club in:

  • The FA Cup preliminary round whereby he scored 4 goals in an away victory at East Preston.
  • His hat trick in the home victory against Horsham.
  • His goal on Bank Holiday Monday in the local Derby with VCD Athletic, completing his scoring streak of a total of 8 goals in the month.
