Congratulations to defender Steve Hoy, who was named as the “Irwell Works Brewery” Ramsbottom United Player of the Month for October.

Steve, who played in all four of the Rams matches across the month, impressed the supporters throughout with his solid displays at the back.

He received his award prior to the match against Widnes at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium from Ramsbottom United supporter and juniors player Leo Knowles.

Well done Steve, who received the trophy and the presentation box of ales from the Ramsbottom-based brewery.
