The winners of October's Player and Manager of the Month awards across the JD Cymru Leagues have been confirmed.

JD Cymru Premier 

Manager of the Month 

Craig Harrison – The New Saints

Reigning champions The New Saints continued their charge for another league title in October and ended the month six points clear at the top of the table following four consecutive wins. Craig Harrison’s side netted 18 goals in the process, including six against both Barry Town United and Colwyn Bay. 

Player of the Month 

Ben Nash – Connah’s Quay Nomads

Connah’s Quay Nomads had the joint-best defence in the JD Cymru Premier in October, conceding just three times in four matches, and Ben Nash played a key role in that with a series of imperious displays. The defender also proved his worth at the other end of the pitch by scoring against Pontypridd United and assisting a goal against Caernarfon Town. 

JD Cymru North

Manager of the Month 

Nathan Leonard – Guilsfield

Having started the month in 10th place in the JD Cymru North, Guilsfield were up to sixth by the end of October following two impressive away wins against Ruthin Town and Caersws. Nathan Leonard’s side had to come from behind in both matches, showing their resolve and team spirit. 

Player of the Month 

Rhys Williams – Flint Town United

Flint Town United were the only club across the three divisions not to concede a goal in October, with wins against Airbus and Buckley Town sustaining their title challenge. Goalkeeper Rhys Williams was instrumental in the two clean sheets with a string of fine saves, continuing his impressive form since signing from Gresford Athletic in the summer. 

JD Cymru South

Manager of the Month 

Lee John – Llanelli Town

Llanelli Town continue to keep pace at the top of the JD Cymru South and Lee John’s team earned seven points from a possible nine in October. The highlight was undoubtedly the emphatic 9-0 home win over Abertillery Bluebirds – the biggest margin of victory since the JD Cymru South’s formation in 2019. 

Player of the Month 

Luke Bowen – Briton Ferry Llansawel

No player has scored more goals in the JD Cymru South this season than Luke Bowen, who sits on 11 from 11 games so far. He netted four crucial goals in October, with braces against Goytre United and Pontardawe Town earning victory for Briton Ferry Llansawel as they maintained top spot in the table.
