Awesome Armstrong Scoops Monthly Manager's Prize

Darlington's Alun Armstrong is the Vanarama National League North Manager of the Month for October.

Some may have wondered why Alun Armstrong left Blyth after three fantastic years this summer.

He had hero status, and a team seemingly on the up. It soon became clear why Darlington moved heaven and earth to ge their man.

The Quakers boss didn’t make the immediate impact he wanted to with four defeats in August but good things come to those who wait.

A flawless October saw Darlo record four wins from four. Now ambitions have changed.

Kidderminster Harriers and Boston United were put to the sword in the National League North, and their FA Cup campaign is growing legs.

A win at tricky Tamworth, having already done the business at Leamington, set up this weekend’s visit to struggling Walsall. Many think an upset could occur.

Armstrong made his name as a player in the North East and he is certainly getting management tongues wagging in the area too.
