Jay Saunders has been named the Vanarama National League’s manager of the month for September.
In awarding the gaffer with the accolade, the panel said:
‘Last season was certainly a learning curve for The Stones and brought considerable pressure during their Vanarama National League campaign on their long serving manager Jay Saunders.
‘By the end of the season, his sixth in charge, he had moved the club away from possible relegation and then he recruited well during the summer months.
‘September has seen a rich haul of points and at the close the club had moved into a challenging title position finishing the month in 5th with a well-earned victory away at Barrow. But the result which really caught the eye and the headlines was another win on the road at Moss Rose, when Jay engineered a 4-1 defeat of high flying Macclesfield Town.
‘A number of other clubs had similar results but these two away victories tipped the scales to send the award heading off to Kent.’
Congratulations to Jay, his management team and players.
