Stour land October 'Fair Play' award

10 months ago By Nigel Gregg

Stourbridge have scooped the Evo-stik Premier Division Fair Play award for October, which is sponsored by FWP Architecture. (READ ON)

Stourbridge, along with Ossett Albion and Leek Town, were named as the best behaved clubs last month in the Evo-stik Premier, Evo-stik North and Evo-stik South divisions respectively.

October's winners topped the 'fair play' tables generated by a totting up of red and yellow cards divided by the number of fixtures clubs have played each month. Clubs must play at least four league games to be eligible for the monthly honours and where tied on points, marks awarded by referees for behaviour in the technical area by managers and coaches are taken into account.

To earn their first fair play accolade of the 2017-18 campaign, Stourbridge manager Gary Hackett saw his side post the lowest disciplinary average in the top flight of 0.75 for the three cautions the Glassboys collected in four outings.

Lancaster City still lead the way in the season's overall table with an average of 0.89 with Witton Albion close behind in second spot on 0.95.

Thanks to the new sponsorship of the Frank Whittle Partnership (FWP), the clubs are now in the running for a share of more than £5,000 in prize money the Northern Premier League hands out annually to the season’s overall fair winners to promote sportsmanship and fair play and back the Football Association's ongoing Respect campaign.

As in previous campaigns, the winners in each division will collect £1,000 with the runners-up banking £500 and the third placed clubs £250 each. The most sporting club with the lowest disciplinary score across the EVO-STIK League's three divisions will also be presented with the Peter Swales President's Cup by FWP at next June's annual awards night in Blackpool.
