First honours in penultimate awards

By David Watters

Stalybridge Celtic, Ossett Albion and Lincoln United are the Northern Premier League's penultimate performance kings of the 2017-18 campaign.

First-time winners this season after being crowned on Wednesday as March's 'Club of the Month' kings, the trio will be presented with engraved glass mementos to mark their form and a bottle of spirits to celebrate with by representatives of the EVO-STIK League at upcoming fixtures over the final weeks of the historic 2017-18 50th anniversary season.

Stalybridge Celtic under the guidance of manager Steve Burr banished any lingering fears of relegation to earn the top flight's accolade, winning four out of five of their league outings to bank 12 points and climb well clear of trouble into mid-table.

Ossett Albion and manager Andy Welsh were in even deeper trouble before turning around their season around to win the EVO-STIK League North honours, the Unicorns romping to five wins out five to collect 15 points and climb 13 points clear of this season's single relegation spot.

Lincoln United and manager Sam Wilkinson are fighting for points at the other end of the table in EVO-STIK League South. To win their first performance award and keep their hopes of making the promotion play-offs alive, the Whites won six out seven of their league encounters to collect 18 precious points and climb into eighth spot with games in hand on a number of their rivals.
