Jim Bentley picks up October’s National League North Manager of the Month Award.

This morning, the National League announced that AFC Fylde boss, Jim Bentley, has been awarded the Manager of the Month award for October.

Last month was a remarkable one for The Coasters, recording a 100% record with seven wins out of seven in all competitions. Four of those victories came in the National League North and the other three in the FA Cup qualifying rounds, scoring 16 goals in the process.

Coasters’s number 10, Nick Haughton, was also a Player of the Month nominee, but narrowly missed out to Gloucester City striker, Matt McClure, who bagged 6 goals in the National League North throughout October.

Jim Bentley and his players will be hoping to continue their outstanding form when Spennymoor Town visit Mill Farm on Tuesday evening (7:45 pm KO).
