Seagulls top Fair Play League

THE Seagulls finished top of the Evostik Division One North’s Fair Play League for November and are also top of the merit points table for technical area behaviour.
 The Bay had just one booking in six games during the month after a crackdown on discipline following needless red cards for  Danny Andrews and Scott Bakkor earlier in the campaign.
 As in previous seasons, the best behaved side in each division at the end of the campaign will collect £1,000 with the runners-up banking £500 and the third placed clubs £250 each. 
 The best club across the Evo-stik NPL’s three divisions will also be presented with the President’s Cup at next June’s Annual Awards night at The Hilton Hotel, Blackpool.
 Manager Paul Moore commented: “We have worked hard as a squad on improving on field discipline, particularly towards referees, and the lads deserve a lot of credit for the way they have responded to that.
 “I think we had the best disciplinary record of any side in all three divisions of the league in November and that is something we ant to try and maintain.”
 Match officials also mark the technical area behaviour of managers and coaches at each game with three points for excellent, two points for good, one for satisfactory and minus one for poor.
 Over the 19 games Colwyn Bay had played up to November 30th, they boasted an average of 2.83 to edge out nearest challengers Clitheroe and Tadcaster Albion with 2.79.
