 Subject: Manager of the Month for September 2017.
« Posted on: Sun 15th Oct 2017 at 11:09 PM »

Dan James is September’s manager of the month. Cornish Revolution’s league games started out with a win away to potential league winners, AC Coolios, despite the home side controlling the majority of possession. The team’s subsequent tie with Stratton Revolution was looking like a comparatively straightforward affair, until a ’57 minute rugby tackle from Cornish striker, Rowe, broke the momentum for the visitors; their two goal lead was cut in half as the game entered injury time, but Dan and his team had already done the work and took the full three points.

It’s not all that common for players to achieve hattricks in top-flight OFLM football, but Sparshott did it in less than half an hour for The Incredibles FC. This, as well as knocking The Hitman Uprising out of the OFLM Cup on penalties, earns Daniel Perry second place this month.

Sam Brown’s AC Coolios are through to the their second OFLM cup semi-final, having gotten the better of Tower of Revolution in their quarter final match. Impressively, this hasn’t affected their league performance; AC Coolios continue to cling onto the coat tails of The Hitman Uprising at the top of the league. This month, they took maximum points off Stratton Revolution and Olympic Milan for the second time this season.

New manager Thom Hughes earns himself top spot, scoring maximum points against the better fielded Souls of Paranoia FC and Treforest Rangers, as well picking up a draw away to league leaders Leicester Lightning. Errigal United end the month on a loss to Ity Bity Allstars, but remain within four points of the playoffs.

It’s a flawless set of matches for Nick Jones and his team of Dudley Dragons. The Dragons conceded early in the first game of the month, but even six Tolstoy Dynamo players at the back couldn’t stop Anelka from finding his 30th minute equaliser, which preceded a 68th minute from Linus in the second half. Nick had less trouble with FC Vikings and Brahma Bulls, managing to keep clean sheets in both games. The month concluded with a 6-0 stomping of Real Revolution.

Ray Wallace was another manager to avoid dropping points this month. Aero Galaxy kept a clean sheet in all their games, with the lone exception of Red Star Sparta, who as a team displayed some flashes of brilliance - notably a bicycle kick goal from Riga to find an equaliser in the 30th – but even a spirited effort from the defence couldn’t keep the score level for very long. Fashanu found the net twice more, and the game finished 3-1 to Aero.

Colin Skinner faced an unexpected exit from the cup this month, much to the bewilderment of Luke Richards. Despite Colin Skinner (himself a top striker for the squad) being subbed on at half time, Lewes Fireflies were unable to make anything happen. This completely contrariwise to their performance in the league, Lewes continue to dominate their division like no other team in the game. Colin may not have taken maximum points this month – there was a 0-0 results vs Salacombe – but they didn’t even concede!

Since Derek Hughes’ arrival, Brothers Revolution have crept their way up to the playoffs, at one point going six games without a loss. That run ended this month in a 10-goal thriller away to Liberty City, but Derek should still be satisfied with wins at The Toto Project and Villa Stripes FC, the latter being the closest threat to robbing Brothers of their hard-earnt playoff position.

It's surprising that Ceri Griffiths only picked up third considering that Richmond Heights FC remained unbeaten this month, only dropping points once in their match with The Toto Project. AC Valladolid fans were disappointed to see their team lose 8-0 to Richmond at home. Richmond’s game with Hebden Bridge Aliens was much closer, and ultimately came down to an OG courtesy of, ironically, Hebden’s most highly rated defender.

It had been six games without a win for Chris Waters, until the first game of the month with an on-form Santo Ovidio. Despite Auckland Utd dominating in possession, the match was very close for the first ‘45. Visitors, Ovidio, capitalised on some early chances and found themselves 2-1 up. United responded with three goals in quick succession towards the end of the half, and entered the break with a 4-2 lead. Any hopes of a point for Ovidio that came with a late goal were instantly extinguished thanks to a quick response – this time from Akebab.

Ian Marshall has brought Dukla Pumpherston ST back to life, loaning in four of the best defenders in the division, and improving the squad all-round to make it a difficult problem for any division 4 manager to tackle. They held Solent City to a 2-2 draw, and collected maximum points from playoff hopefuls Devon Sunrays and FC Santo Ovidio. With eight games to go, there’s a good chance for Dukla to make the playoffs!

Rob Mucklow put a stop to the run of defending divisional cup winners, Solent City, and his team will face Staddiscombe Rovers in both teams’ first ever cup final. After a goalless draw to Hartlepools United, Rob’s Devon Sunrays sit just one point outside the playoffs.
