Double Whammy For The Blues

Buxton Fixture Postponed

Gainsborough Trinity were last night named Evo-Stik Premier Division 'Club of the Month' for November 2018. The award will comprise of the presentation of an engraved permanent memento and a litre bottle of a spirit and will be presented at a time and date to be confirmed. League secretary, Angie Firth commented, "May I congratulate the Club, Manager and Players on this award."

The award follows a month of solid results for Gainsborough that saw the side undefeated in five games, picking up draws away from home at Stafford Rangers and Marine, before picking up the maximum number of points from the next three games, the 4-1 home win over Whitby Town before two away victories in four days, defeating Bamber Bridge at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium and turning over league leaders Scarborough Athletic 0-2 in their own back yard.

Ashley Worsfold, Alex Simmons and Simon Russell all found their shooting boots in November, following Lee Sinnott and John Reed’s tactical shake up, with the manager declaring, "I am obviously delighted for everyone concerned with the football club. It is recognition for the players and their performance levels over the calendar month, but is also down to the contribution everyone has made behind the scenes." Currently sat just outside the play-off spots, the Holy Blues are well positioned ahead of a busy fixture schedule in the run up to Christmas.

The notification of this award, follows recognition of the Gainsborough Trinity Reserves, who also won the 'Club of the Month' from the Lincolnshire League sponsors, Balcan Lighting Supplies. Gainsborough Trinity Reserves, who were only re-established in the summer, currently sit in pole position at the summit of the Lincolnshire League.

Managed by club legend, Jimmy Snee, the side have made great strides and earned many plaudits for an attacking style of football very much suited to playing their home games on the Northolme. The Reserves’ own impressive November saw them pick up four wins, scoring eleven goals, including five at home to Lincoln United Reserves.

Congratulations to everyone associated with the club on these honours, here’s hoping for many more to come! #TrinityFamily #inittogether #PrideInTheBadge
