SLFA Player of the Month - January/February
Congratulations to Swindon Supermarine student Jay Haydon who has been named the
SLFA ‘Player of the Month!’ for January/February. Read all about what Haydon and the
other nominees have achieved over the past two months.
Enes Muca (Sutton Coldfield Town Football Club), Ryan Scrivens (Chesham United Football Club), Jay Haydon (Swindon Supermarine) and Ethan Pearce (Sutton Coldfield Town Football Club) were all nominated for January/February ‘Player of the Month!’.
Enes Muca – Midfield – Sutton Coldfield Town Football Club
The Holding midfielder and enforcer in the Sutton Coldfield midfield, Muca has enjoyed a
brilliant run of form over January and February. His team is unbeaten in the four games they
have played since the new year, winning three games and drawing just the one to
his rock solid display helped his side beat Yate Town 3-2 and also was named as ‘Player of
the Week!’ in #MatchweekEleven.
Ryan Scrivens – Midfield – Chesham United Football Club
Scrivens has been in great form in January and February. His Chesham United side have
been tough to beat over the past couple of months, claiming six points from five games
since Christmas in the form of one win and three draws. The Chesham vice-captain plays at
the heart of the midfield and is commanding on the ball. He is the type of midfielder that
can put his foot in and isn’t scared of a tackle but can also produce some quality. Having
started out as a goalkeeper in the earlier months of the programme, Chesham United coach
Gary Forde thought he could be utilised a lot better outfield and has taken to his new
position very well.
Jay Haydon – Midfield – Swindon Supermarine
Swindon Supermarine are another SLFA team that has remained unbeaten since the new
year, after beating Chesham United and also drawing with Kidlington and Chesham United
on a separate occasion. This could be largely down to the fact that Jay Haydon is back in the
squad after suffering a broken collar bone in #MatchweekOne of the season. Since coming
back from injury, Haydon has picked up two ‘Player of the Week!’ awards
player who moves well with the ball at his feet but can also slot in at the back to cover his
team as he did in #MatchweekThirteen. Swindon Supermarine coach, Kerry Walklett always
speaks highly of Haydon and was impressed with his attitude after his frustrating time out
with an injury.
Ethan Pearce – Midfield – Sutton Coldfield Town Football Club
Ethan Pearce is the first returning ‘Player of the Month!’ nominee in the SLFA, having been
on the shortlist for September/ October. Pearce was first being played as a defender but
after impressing his coaches with his great attitude, silky skills and quick feet has since been
moved forward into midfield. The first-year student has helped his Sutton Coldfield Town
side remain unbeaten in 2020 and they sit proudly at the top of the table. Pearce has been
playing brilliantly in January and February, and his coaches have definitely noticed. He was
being nominated for ‘Player of the week!’ in #MatchweekTen.
