Paul Rutherford has been voted the Trust in Yellow Player of the Month for November.
It is the second month running that Rutherford has picked up the award, continuing the rich vein of form he has shown since the appointment of manager Gary Brabin at the start of October.
In a month that brought Southport success in the FA Cup as well a strong set of results in the Vanarama Conference, Rutherford beat off strong competition from a number of players including goalkeeper David Raya Martin, who finished a close second.
Rutherford was presented with his award by Southport fan and Trust member Philip Caven ahead of Saturday’s FA Trophy match against Wrexham.
The highlight of Rutherford’s month was probably the pivotal role he played in the win at Nuneaton Town, creating two of the Sandgrounders’ three goals, including one which saw him set off on a virtuoso run before setting up Richard Brodie.
Rutherford joins Brodie in having won the award twice this season.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.
Supporters will have the chance to vote for December’s award at the end of the month.
