Reusch First Division North Goalkeeper of the Month for March 2024, Atherton LR's Joseph Bickerstaffe has this week receoved his award from League Vice Chairman, Geoff Wilkinson.

Joseph had a great month for his club as they consolidated a play-off space playing in 4 games, conceding 3 and 1 clean sheet.  

The clubs nomination statement at the time stated "Joe has, once more, had a fantastic month 'in between the sticks' at LR. His performances in March have again demonstrated his importance to the team, being relied on to make crucial saves whilst being pivotal to the team's play with the ball. His month began away in a huge game at Ashton Town - the league's 2nd top scorers. As in previous games, Joe made important saves to keep the opponent's attackers at bay, earning a clean sheet in the process as LR came away with a 3-0 win. In the other games this month, Joe's displays in goal have helped to earn the 3 points in a month where LR had a 100% record.  His shot-stopping has been excellent, most exemplified in his jaw-dropping save at the death of the game vs Runcorn Town. Furthermore, his distribution on the ball is a key focal point in LR's attacking play, showing the strength of his all-round play."

Our congratulations again go to Joseph who receives his award from Geoff on behalf of Reusch UK, he has received a high specification pair of goalkeeping gloves from the Reusch UK range.
