February’s Player and Manager of the Month winners

The winners of February’s Player and Manager of the Month awards across the JD Cymru Leagues have been confirmed.

JD Cymru Premier 

Manager of the Month 

Gavin Allen – Pontypridd United

Appointed as Pontypridd United manager in January, Gavin Allen made a superb start to life at USW Sports Park with two wins and a draw from three games in February. After an emphatic 3-0 win away at Barry Town United to kick off phase two, the Dragons earned a 1-1 draw with Play-Off Conference leaders Haverfordwest County before thrashing Colwyn Bay 4-0 to move out of the relegation zone. 

Player of the Month 

Ben Ahmun – Pontypridd United

It was no secret that Pontypridd United were struggling for goals earlier in the season, so Ben Ahmun’s return from injury at the back end of 2023 was timely. The Dragons netted eight times in three games in February, with Ahmun involved on five occasions – two goals and three assists. 

JD Cymru North

Manager of the Month 

Johnny Haseldin – Holywell Town

Holywell Town continue to chase down Airbus for the title, with three consecutive victories in February taking their winning streak to nine matches. Johnny Haseldin’s team got the better of Caersws and Guilsfield to start and end the month respectively, but most important of all was a 1-0 home win over title rivals Flint Town United. 

Player of the Month 

Craig Lindfield – Airbus UK Broughton

A JD Cymru North title winner with Colwyn Bay last season, Craig Lindfield’s experience and knowhow is proving vital as he aims to help Airbus achieve the same feat. He may be 35 years old, but Lindfield continues to run games from midfield and in February he contributed goals in the wins over Prestatyn Town and Mold Alexandra. 

JD Cymru South

Manager of the Month 

Gruff Harrison – Ammanford

Having started February in fifth place in the JD Cymru South and 12 points behind top spot, Ammanford finished the month in third and just three points adrift of leaders Llanelli Town. Gruff Harrison guided his side to five consecutive wins against Pontardawe Town, Goytre United, Baglan Dragons, Briton Ferry Llansawel and Trefelin, and it is now hard to argue against them being title contenders.  

Player of the Month 

Lewis Reed – Ammanford

A focal point in Ammanford’s attack, Lewis Reed netted in all of his side’s five consecutive wins in February to shoot to the top of the JD Cymru South scoring charts with 20 for the season. Most crucial of all was his brace in the 2-1 win over Briton Ferry Llansawel, which firmly established the Black and White Army as title contenders.
