Before our Macron Cup Quarter Final on Saturday v Nelson FC, Martin Stewart from the NWCFL was on hand to present the January Division 1 Club of the Month to Avro FC. Joint gaffers Lee and James were happy to receive the award on behalf of all the coaching and playing staff who contributed to us winning it for the 2nd time this season following on from November's award. January was a perfect month for us, as we won all 5 games, with 4 of those games being away from home. The full record was :
5th Jan Holker OB - Away - W 0-3
8th Jan Nelson - Away - W 0-3
12th Jan Ashton Town - Away W 1-5
19th Jan St Helens Town Away W 0-2
26th Jan Carlisle City Home - W 7-1
Lee said " We're delighted to accept this on behalf of everyone who contributed to the success of January. It was a challenging month with so many games away from home, but the team spirit in the group is different class and the lads produced some great displays on the road, and finished the month with a big win against a very decent Carlisle City team. Awards like this are stepping stones on the road to what we are looking to achieve. "
