NEWS | Citizens scoop JD WPL Player and Manager of the Month awards

1 year ago By Kevin Owen

Kevin Nicholson named top boss and the players' prize goes to Dean Rittenberg

Bangor City have scooped both prizes for the JD WPL's Manager and Player of the Month awards for November with Kevin Nicholson named top boss and the players' prize going to Dean Rittenberg.

The Citizens were the only JD WPL club with a 100% record from 4 matches during November.

Nicholson's side enjoyed a resurgent month in a run that has seen the Citizens regain ground on leaders The New Saints and Cardiff Met Uni.

That run of form saw wins at Newtown (2-1), at home to Aberystwyth (3-2), before two important wins with a 2-0 victory at Connah's Quay Nomads before thumping Bala Town 5-0 at the VSM Bangor Stadium.

Striker Rittenberg scored five goals from four starts beginning with a brace at Newtown at the beginning of the month, followed by a goal in each of the subsequent matches. The five goals in November brings the former Blackburn Rovers product's tally for the season to 10 in all competitions.

On receiving the awards, Kevin Nicholson said: "We are delighted to win both awards. It is great news for the club."

"November was a month to remember - four wins from four in the JD Welsh Premier League, 12 goals scored and two excellent clean sheets. The players did a fantastic job."

Nicholson added: "These awards recognise the achievements of the team and the good work of everyone at Bangor City FC; Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Stephen Vaughan, the players, all the support staff and the fans."

LLongyfarchiadau | Congratulations, Kevin and Dean! from everyone involved at Bangor City Football Club.
