March’s Player and Manager of the Month winners

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

JD Cymru Premier 

Manager of the Month 

Richard Davies – Caernarfon Town

Caernarfon Town sneaked into the top six on the final day of phase one, but they have held their own since the split and seven points from a possible 12 in March saw them climb from sixth place up to fourth. A 2-1 home win over Connah’s Quay Nomads – a team who they had they not beaten in their 15 previous meetings – was a particular highlight for Richard Davies and co. 

Player of the Month 

Rhys Abbruzzese – Haverfordwest County

Rhys Abbruzzese has established himself as one of the best full-backs in the JD Cymru Premier this season. Part of a Haverfordwest County defence that kept three clean sheets in four matches in March, Abbruzzese also provided an assist in the win over Aberystwyth Town, before holding his nerve to convert an 88th-minute penalty to beat Pontypridd United 1-0. 

JD Cymru North

Manager of the Month 

Johnny Haseldin – Holywell Town

Holywell Town climbed to the top of the JD Cymru North by the end of March after five consecutive wins, in which they scored 17 goals and only conceded one. Johnny Haseldin’s side have now won 14 consecutive league matches and are in pole position to lift the title as we head into the final month of the campaign. 

Player of the Month 

Max McLaughlin – Chirk AAA

Chirk AAA may have been relegated after losing their first two games in March, but they went on to earn seven points from their next three. Max McLaughlin registered a goal contribution in all five matches, scoring in four in a row – including a brace to defeat Llandudno 3-2 – before providing an assist against Llanidloes Town.  

JD Cymru South

Manager of the Month 

Andy Dyer – Briton Ferry Llansawel

Andy Dyer’s Briton Ferry Llansawel started and ended March in second place in the JD Cymru South, but 16 points from a possible 18 ensured they maintained the pressure on leaders Llanelli Town. Late goals to beat Goytre United, Abertillery Bluebirds and Cwmbran Celtic could prove to be particularly crucial moments in the title race. 

Player of the Month 

Joe Hopkins – Llanelli Town

It is at this stage of the season that it is particularly important for captains to lead by example and Joe Hopkins did exactly that for Llanelli Town in March. Hopkins scored four goals in six matches, including a 93rd-minute winner to defeat Baglan Dragons 2-1 and a brace in the crucial 3-1 victory away at Ammanford.
