Ahead of their recent home game against Winsford United, Runcorn Town goalkeeper keeper Adam Reid was presented with his Reusch Goalkeeper of the Month award for January 2020 by League Management Committee member Martin Fallon.

Here is a reminder of why Adam won the January award:

Runcorn Town goalkeeper Adam Reid is the Premier Division Goalkeeper of the Month for January after keeping three clean sheets and conceding an average of just one goal per game in the month.

The first game of the month at Whitchurch Alport brought his first clean sheet of the month in a 3-0 win. Adam made two vital saves in this game, a full length dive to deny Joe Cuff a free kick in the 39th minute and another to deny Cuff with 15 minutes remaining.

Next up was a big defeat at Bootle, but Runcorn bounced back at Winsford United with a 1-0 win earning Adam another clean sheet. Reid tipped a Sam Madeley piledriver from 10 yards over his crossbar in the first half, but was more instrumental in the second when he saved a penalty from Madeley with the score goalless.

Runcorn's fourth game of the month was a 2-1 win at Irlam, Reid denying Jordan Icely in the first half with a full length save to his left. He could do nothing about a superbly worked Irlam goal, but commanded his box well with Irlam looking dangerous from free kicks.

At home to Avro, Reid kept his side in the game in the first half, with three great saves to deny Kane Wallwork in particular. He could do nothing about Avro's goal, which came from the penalty spot.

The final game of the month saw Adam keep his third clean sheet of the month and 12th of the season in a 3-0 win over Barnoldswick Town. He palmed an effort from Teal Amos over the crossbar in the first half, and tipped a Ric Seear effort onto the right hand post in the second.

Congratulations to Adam on winning this award.
