“It’s a great league to play in. All the clubs are capable of taking points of each other, which is happening week in week out. I am really humbled to receive the award and I look forward to see what the rest of the seasons holds for us.”
Sponsor of the award Colin Campbell said, “We are delighted to be sponsoring the player of the month, Keith is a worthy winner of the award, he is a great player and deserves it. It’s an excellent league and I have seen many great players competing in it.”
