Glassboys receive another Fair Play honour

FF News

Recommended Posts

Stourbridge's fans, players and officials can start laying claim to being the best behaved side of 2015 so far in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League after being named for the second month running as the winners of the Premier Division Fair Play Award.

Glassboys manager Gary Hackett is pictured being presented with January's award by Evo-Stik NPL representative John Beaumont before the club's 1-1 draw with Trafford on Valentine's Day and he will collect his side's second successive fair play accolade this Saturday before his side kick off against Blyth Spartans at the War Memorial Athletic Ground.

The Premier Division winners were named on Wednesday alongside Loughborough Dynamo in First Division South and Lancaster City in First Division North as February's winners of the monthly competition to reward fair play and sportsmanship.

To qualify, clubs must play a minimum of four league games with one point awarded for a caution and three for a dismissal before a totting up of red and yellow cards divided by the number of Evo-Stik NPL fixtures played. In the event of a tie, technical area points are used. If still tied, disciplinary records in external cup games are taken into account.

In the Evo-Stik NPL's top flight the Glassboys collected just three cautions in five outings to post a disciplinary average of 0.60 and climb to third in the campaign's overall table. League representative John Goddard will make the presentation at the weekend.

Like all winning clubs, Stourbridge will be presented with an inscribed certificate to record their achievement and a bottle of Pol Roger champagne to celebrate with as part of the Evo-Stik NPL’s successful backing for the FA’s Respect campaign.

Loughborough Dynamo's joint managers Lee Morris and Jason Maguire are also set to collect their first fair play award since taking over from Tommy Brookbanks back in October this Saturday with Evo-Stik NPL representative Mark Ogley heading to the Nanpantan Sports Ground to make the presentation before kick off against Stocksbridge Park Steels.

After notching up their fair share of disciplinary points so far this season, Dynamo turned over a new leaf last month to win the First Division South accolade. Like the Glassboys, they collected just three cautions in five outings to post a disciplinary average of 0.60.

Under the guidance of manager Darren Peacock, the Dolly Blues have been upholding their reputation for fair play and sportsmanship all season after winning the First Division North's fair play awards for October and December and the club will be presented with a remarkable third accolade of the campaign by Evo-Stik NPL Vice-President and Respect manager Phil Bradley on Saturday week (March 14) when they host Ossett Town at the Giant Axe.

Like February's other winners, the Dolly Blues posted an identical disciplinary record of 0.60 for three cautions in five fixtures.

In the overall season-to-date tables, league newcomers Spalding United lead in First Division South with a disciplinary average of 0.88 and can lay claim to be the league's best behaved side with lowest score after 33 games played.

Lancaster head the First Division North table with 1.03 from 34 outings while Matlock Town still top the Premier Division table with an average of 1.19 from 36 fixtures played.
