Ahead of last week's Cheadle Town against Vauxhall Motors game, Cheadle keeper Marcus Burgess was presented with his Reusch Goalkeeper of the Month award for January 2020 by League Management Committee member Ian Williams.
Here is a reminder of why Marcus won the January award:
Cheadle Town goalkeeper Marcus Burgess is the First Division South Goalkeeper of the Month for January after keeping one clean sheet and conceding an average of just one goal per game in the month.
In-form Marcus has been ever present during month of January, which saw Cheadle Town go on a historical run of results including 5 victories and 1 draw, enough to win the Club of the Month award. When teams go on such a run of results, it’s just as vital that players like Marcus are in top form and he certainly has been during the past month.
Still only 23-years old, Marcus has been a revelation since joining Cheadle Town on a dual registration from Warrington Town. Warrington Town are more than happy for Marcus to continue to learn his trade at this level, but with his recent form it won’t be long before his parent club come knocking and requesting his return.
Throughout January, Marcus kept a clean sheet in the home victory against Sandbach United and only let in the odd goal in all the other games during January. During many games, Marcus has pulled of some tremendous saves to deny the opposition and each game he plays he is becoming a stronger and more better player.
He is certainly a deserved winner in the Goalkeeper category for such a promising talent.
Congratulations to Marcus on winning this award.
