Supporters can now vote for their player of the month for December.

The winner will be announced on the evening of Friday 4th January.

The link for this vote can be found at the bottom of this article.

Here is a recap of our month:

To begin December, Craig Denton’s side produced a fantastic second-half performance to beat Albion Sports 3-0 at Sandy Lane.

Steve Wankiewicz nodded Worksop into the lead before Connor Brunt was on hand to slide home the second. Matt Sykes put the game to bed with only minutes remaining as he netted from twelve yards.

We then travelled up to league leaders Yorkshire Amateur, who opened the scoring in fortunate fashion as Matt Reay converted into his own goal, but Wankiewicz powered in his second goal in as many games to take a point back to S80.

The weather got the best of us as a trip to Harrogate Railway Athletic was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

This interrupted the Tigers’ momentum, which seemed to fizzle out as we were defeated by Bridlington Town.

Matt Broadley got the Seasiders into the lead against the run of play; however, on the stroke of half-time, Sykes produced a spectacular strike from halfway to punish the keeper for his mistake.

The home side came out firing in the second half, and two goals in quick succession meant Broadley completed his hat-trick and all three points stayed in the East Riding.

The month finished more positively as the Tigers completed the double over Liversedge FC with a 2-1 win.

Craig Mitchell poked Town into the lead but his side were pegged back a minute later as Farrar tapped home at the back stick.

Steve McDonnell was then thwarted in the box, and the referee blew for a spot-kick which Sykes converted perfectly.

Here are the four nominees for player of the month:

Steven Wankiewicz
Local lad Vank has been instrumental in the Tigers’ backline as his no-nonsense attitude has kept his teammates in check. He has also contributed at the other end with two important headers.

Matt Sykes
The winger has continued his goal-scoring form with three strikes this month, and five in his last six games. He set up Brunt’s goal against Albion and provided the pass for Lee Hill’s set-up in our last fixture against Liversedge.

Deegan Atherton
Deegan has impressed again and seems to improve game upon game. He has been deployed at wing-back as well as centre-half and started all four games in December.

Max Pemberton
Pembo is another who has had a solid month. He provided the pinpoint cross for Wankiewicz to connect with and gain a point against Amateur. He has been consistent down the left-hand side before moving back to his normal position at centre-back against Liversedge.
