Manager honour

Have your say

NEW MILLS AFC manager Ally Pickering has picked up a top managerial award.

Pickering was named North West Counties Football League Premier Division Manager of the Season at the recent NWCFL Presentation Evening.

The manager guided the Millers to the Premier Division championship in his first season in charge at Church Lane, as well as reaching the final of the Vodkat League Cup.

A New Mills club spokesman said: “This was a very appropriate tribute to Ally who, along with Nev and Jim, put in a tremendous amount of hard work and effort during the successful league campaign.”
