I mentioned McGgrain in my ‘Overachieving with a young team‘ article and he must have read my praise because he has repaid me with some impressive performances, enough to earn him the Coca-Cola League One Young Player of the Month award. It is never easy to win these accolades especially when playing for an unfancied team. I feel it is a reminder that trusting my young players is the right thing to do.
McGrain’s goals helped us out of a really poor run of four losses in six games which started just after I wrote my previous article. Since we are unbeaten and have won four of six leaving us in 10th but just three points from the play-off places.
