Jamie Godbold has admitted that his Manager of the Month award for February will mean very little if his AFC Sudbury side are not crowned champions, writes Liam Apicella.

Six wins from six outings earned Godbold the accolade as Subury opened up a 10-point lead at the top of the Ryman League Division One North table.

But Godbold has stressed that team glory is much more important than individual honours.

“It is nice to win and it is a credit to everyone involved with the first team because they’ve shown great commitment,” he said.

“We had a great run in February, but it ultimately means not much at all if we do not go on to win the title.”

As well as Godbold, goalkeeper Marcus Garnham was recognised for his form between the posts with the Precision Goalkeeping Golden Gloves award.

Garnham, who rejoined Sudbury from Lowestoft Town last year, let in just three goals in February.

“It is no surprise our good run started when Marcus joined,” added Godbold.

“His all-round contribution has been fantastic and he sets a terrific example.”

n The Yellows will play host to sixteenth-placed Great Wakering Rovers on Saturday (3pm).
