 The Evo-Stik League Manager of the Month awards for November have gone to FC United of Manchester’s Karl Marginson, Neil Parsley of Farsley Celtic and Grantham Town’s joint management team of Wayne Hallcro and Jim Albans.

Marginson’s FC United won three and drew one of their four league fixtures in the month in addition to overcoming a tricky looking away tie in the FA Trophy at Durham City where they drew before winning the replay. In the next round of the Trophy FC United secured a well deserved win over Blue Square Bet North club Altrincham to finish with five wins and two draws in their seven games during November enabling Marginson to lift the top tier award.

Farsley Celtic started November with defeat against Skelmersdale United in what surprisingly transpired to be the only time in the month that “Skem” picked up maximum points. Parsley (pictured), however, regrouped his troops to reel off five successive league victories in the rest of the period to move in to play-off contention and take the Division One North award.

The joint Grantham Town management team of Wayne Hallcro and Jim Albans have been carrying all before them recently in the Division One South and their side reeled off six straight victories in the month to give themselves eleven successive three pointers and leave Grantham unbeaten in fifteen league outings going in to December.
