VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH- MANAGER OF THE MONTH
Kevin Wilkin (Brackley Town)
Brackley Town fans knew back in August it would take quite a lot to better last season. After all, they not only won the FA Trophy at Wembley but reached the National League North Promotion Final in the process.
Kevin Wilkin knows there’s only one way his side can improve on that - and March saw them take a giant leap towards achieving their goal of going up.
They started the month in fine fettle with a 3-1 win over Blyth Spartans.
Brackley then became the team to end Stockport County’s incredible three-month undefeated run with a 1-0 success at St James Park.
They then went on to defeat play-off rivals Kidderminster Harriers, before seeing to Hereford with a professional 2-0 away win.
Wilkin’s side ended the month with a credible goalless draw at Southport. It will take a lot already for them to miss out on the play-offs now.
Congratulations to Kevin who has been named Vanarama Manager of the Month for March. This is clearly a good month for Brackley Town – Kevin was Vanarama Manager of the Month in March last year also!
The award recognises Saints’ remarkable form since the turn of the year taking the team into third place in the table and narrow defeat in the FA Trophy by Leyton Orient as the holders only gave up their trophy after the greatest of fights.
“This is recognition for my team and the work put in by everybody concerned,” Kevin said.
Congratulations from everybody at the club on this well deserved award.
