The Ramsbottom United Player of the Month award for January 2017, as voted for by the club’s supporters, went to goalkeeper Martin Fearon.

Martin will always be regarded as a “Rammy legend” for his superb save in the Play-off Final at Bamber Bridge that helped the club gain promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division in 2014.

After a spell with Skelmersdale United, Martin rejoined the Rams just before Christmas, and has been influential in a run of just one defeat in the last eight matches.

The award, sponsored by Irwell Works Brewery, was presented to the custodian ahead of the 2-0 victory at home to Brighouse Town, by long-standing supporter Andy Worsick.
