March Player of the Month
The winner of the March player of the month was a very close call with a number of players in close contention. Juddy just managed to pip Craig and Ryan to the post by one point to secure the trophy. A testimony to Juddy’s versatility shone through with him playing in at least 3 different positions (Midfield, Goalkeeper and Centre forward) through the month. Juddy excelled in all positions with his 110% commitment always being evident. Juddy is our first winner of the trophy to be over the age of 20 and he’s a big Leicester fan but we won’t hold that against him, although we’d like to… Well done Juddy. You’ve put in some excellent performances and have shown a great attitude no matter what position you’ve been asked to play. I just wished you’d stop hiding my boots, pinching my socks, nicking my shorts…

James Shannon Debuts For The Reserves
On Saturday 6th March the u16’s goalkeeper James Shannon made his Seniors debut for Brinklow Reserves. James stepped up to the Men’s football to play against tough opponents Peugeot who are likely to win the division. It was not ideal for a first game but to be fair James coped admirably and looked assured and comfortable and did a superb job, making a couple of outstanding saves that had spectators from both sides applauding. James has a very bright future ahead and so do Brinklow as a club with talent like this waiting to break through. It is great to have James on board and on this showing he will take some moving from between the posts. James is the latest of a number of 16 & 17 year olds to break into Senior football with style, along with Tommy Glasscoe, Jamie Huddlestone and Nic Whittam all doing very well at this highest level in the club. To other young players at Brinklow, this is what can be achieved if you work hard.

Well done James.

Player of the Month - January Jamie Huddlestone


Paul presents Jamie with January Player of the Month. Jamie has put in some excellent performances lately and thoroughly deserves the accolade of being the first player to be presented with this trophy. Unfortunately for Jamie we only picked the trophy up on Friday. So he only had it in his hands for about 30 seconds before it was passed to the February Player of the Month…

Player of the Month – February Tommy Glasscoe


Another youngster picks up the trophy with some excellent performances over the last few weeks culminating in the February Player of the Month. Tommy has excelled this year and has grown in confidence week on week. Whether he’s playing out wide on the right or playing in the hole he always gives it his all and has shown he has an excellent eye for a defence splitting pass. Well done Tommy keep it up!

21st Feb 2010


The first team have introduced a Player of the Month competition. All scores will be out of ten and will be judged by Paul and Dave.  A trophy will be presented to the successful player each month.  January Player of the month went to Jamie Huddlestone who put in some very capable performances at left back.  Not bad for a 16 year old!  Scoring for February is tight at the top with Tommy Glasscoe currently taking top spot, closely followed by Rooney, Juddy and Sinky.  With only one game to go this month (weather permitting) it’s going to be very close.  Good luck to all!
