07 Mar 2019 : February winner Aaron Morris is Bowland Brewery Player of Month for second time
Our player of the month for February (sponsored by Bowland Brewery) is Aaron Morris, the ever-consistent central defender having already won the equivalent accolade in November.
In a busy month of fixtures, including a couple of cup quarter- final games, there would be no rest for Aaron, who played every minute of every match. With Michael Ellison's squad plagued by injuries, Aaron took up the mantle and led by example.
Aaron started the month by taking on the added responsibility of captaining the side for the Integro Cup last-eight tie against Trafford. In the thrilling home victory over Kidsgrove, his contribution could not have been bigger. A magnificent goal line clearance when Runcorn were trailing 0-1 in the first half would prove critical as two very late goals earned the Linnets maximum points, the winner being scored in the 93rd minute by Aaron himself when he coolly rounded the goalkeeper and swept the ball into the net, sparking absolute pandemonium at the Millbank Linnets Stadium.
Captain's duty followed once again, this time in the Cheshire Senior Cup quarter-final tie against Congleton Town. Leading his side against a fast and strong team, the Aaron steered the Linnets through to an impressive 4-1 victory.
A resounding 5-0 victory at Clitheroe gave a welcome clean sheet to the months work for Aaron, and February ended with a very tough home fixture against in-form Mossley with a tight and entertaining game ultimately ending with the spoils shared.
Some changes in personnel in and around Aaron throughout the month didn't effect his play, and for coming through a difficult month of fixtures with the added responsibility of captaining the team on a couple of occasions, Aaron thoroughly deserves this award.
