Liam Robinson of Abbey Hulton United has been presented with his Player of the Month award.

League Ambassador John Reid attended at a recent Abbey Hulton United home game to present Liam with his award.

The defender had a perfect month in September with four games played and four Man of the Matches collected. This is what was said about him when the announcement was made.


It's Abbey Hulton United's first winner of this award since Lee Cropper in November 2018. Defenders don't win this award too often really, but Liam Robinson is a worthy winner after the month he has had.

Liam played four games in the month and received four Man of the Matche awards from those four games, with Abbey having a record in September of lost 1, drawn 1 and won 2. The two games they won, they scored three goals in each of the games, so for a defender not to score and still get Man of the Match shows just how well he has played when they have also attacked so well in those games.

Liam has been moved around to play in three positions this season, he has started naturally up front, played as a holding midfielder, and in the last four games as a central defender as part of a back three. His adaptability, and attitude to do whatever he needs to do for the team has been brilliant and a lot of lads nowadays can learn from him.

Another part of his game has been his leadership, Liam isn’t the Captain but really does lead by example in a lot of areas, one in particular is with matchday officials. Liam is the first to pull players out of trouble or shut them up if they begin to pester referees/line people, he is respectful of the officials and the opposition, and the lack of cautions he has received shows this.

But to the football side of things again Liam has been a main figure in all the results Abbey Hulton have had his month. Against Alsager he put himself on the line to prevent them conceding any more goals, and then rallied in the second half for a fightback that they couldn’t quite get. The New Mills game he was phenomenal and no matter what they tried, he controlled and made sure he or the team couldn’t be beaten, keeping a clean sheet in the process.

Brocton away was another game where he organised the team from front to back, won everything that came his way, and created chances with his distribution. The last game was Abbey Hey, where he set up the last minute equalising goal, and his attitude and desire drove the team on to never give up. To get as high as he did to set up the equaliser showed just how much he wanted it.

Before that though he kept the score down with some last ditch tackles, blocks, and putting his body on the line to ensure that the team didn’t concede.

Congratulations to Liam and to all at Abbey Hulton.
