Leiston manager Mark Morsley scoops second award

LEISTON manager Mark Morsley has scooped his second managerial award in three months.

Morsley has been named as the Macron Ryman League Division One North Manager of the Month for February - just two months after claiming the December award.

Although Leiston had exactly the same playing record in February as Enfield Town - played three, won three, eight goals for and two goals against - Morsley won the award by virtue of the fact that Leiston had two away fixtures to Enfield’s one.

Leiston extended their lead at the top of the league over Enfield to four points yesterday thanks to a 1-0 win at Brentwood Town while a last-minute goal earned AFC Sudbury a 3-3 draw at Enfield.

The win, courtesy of a Rhys Henry goal, made it 20 games undefeated for Leiston and a remarkable ten away league wins in a row in their first season in the Ryman League.
