In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the JD Cymru Leagues has decided to award its Player & Manager of the Month Awards to those individuals in the domestic game who have given back to their community in the midst of the current testing climate.
With football currently suspended, a number of players, coaches and officials have used their time to support the cause in a range of ways, whether in a professional or voluntary capacity.
The JD Cymru Leagues has decided to reward some of these individuals with the Player & Manager of the Month Awards for April 2020 to recognise the work they are doing during the current pandemic.
The Football Association of Wales and the JD Cymru Leagues would like to extend its gratitude to all key workers for the work they continue to carry out in all the communities across Wales during this difficult time.

Manager of the Month - Wayne Jones (Haverfordwest County)
2019-20 has proven to be a successful season for Haverfordwest County manager Wayne Jones, whose side sit in second place in the JD Cymru South.
But whilst football has remained suspended throughout Wales, work is still ongoing for the Bluebirds manager who works as a Health Care Support worker in the community of Carmarthen, working as part of the mental health team.
JD Cymru Premier
Player of the Month - Marc Williams (Aberystwyth Town)
Aberystwyth Town striker Marc Williams has been a central figure for the Seasiders this term.
However, he has proven to be just as much an influential figure off the pitch. In April, the forward organised a fundraiser to raise vital funds for NHS Wales and he encouraged other JD Cymru Leagues players to help him in achieving his goal.
Earlier this month, Williams reached his target of £5k.
JD Cymru North
Player of the Month - Jack Chaloner (Gresford)
Gresford midfielder and vice captain Jack Chaloner has been a reliable performer for the club this season, as they sit in 10th in the JD Cymru North.
During the current pandemic, Chaloner has been continuing his work in the physio department of Maelor Hospital in Wrexham.
JD Cymru South
Player of the Month - Liam Shaw (Pontypridd Town)
Whilst the last few months have been a success on the pitch for Jonathan Jones' men, the last few weeks have seen Shaw support the community through his day job.
In his role with the Army, Shaw has been supplying food and medical supplies to vulnerable people around the UK.
