Manager Matt Hall has picked his VMFC Player of the Month for January and this month's award goes to Pete Ransom.
January has been an up and down month for the VMFC 2nd Team but every fixture has been a close one as the league season draws to a close.
Reviewing the month, Matt said, "January has been a bit of a funny one for the seconds. We've had some of the league's lower placed teams to play and that, combined with having some of the clubs first team players available, has given the second team's performances a somewhat different start of the year.
"Results have still largely gone against us but we've conceded less and scored more and in some games showed real character and commitment across the team. This has come from both first team players such as Jay, Tom, Sam and Steve and second team players, particularly Jonathan and Spence, with the highlight of the month definitely being the point secured against Gorton Reds last week.
"Epitomising that, playing in all games and weighing in with a goal has been Pete. Pete has been a model of consistency on the left this month and has risen above the challenges the seconds have faced, not to mention domestic abuse and, of course, continuing to live with me! As a result he is my player of the month for January.
"I'm not sure yet what he'll be drinking as a reward but I can guarantee you he'll be pouring me a large glass!"
The second team's final league fixture of the season is on February 10th. They will be present at the Yorkshire Terriers Tournament in mid-March and have an away friendly against Nottingham Ballbois arranges for April.
