Captain Alex Moore has also shown good form with four “Man of the Match” awards from opposition Managers. This leaves Alex in second place in the running for the annual League award for Player of the Season; however Carl will need to add even more goals for the “Top goal scorer of the season award”; Jordan Erdmann from Penlake has scored 22 goals from the same number of games.
