ABERYSTWYTH Town’s upturn in fortunes during November has seen the Park Avenue outfit claim not one but two of the JD Cymru Premier’s monthly awards.

An unbeaten month, which included two wins and a draw, lifted spirits at the Seasiders after some positive performances in September and October had gone unrewarded.

The biggest result of November was undoubtedly the 1-0 home win over leaders The New Saints, who hadn’t lost in the league up to that point.

That was preceded by a 1-1 draw at Barry Town United and followed with another single-goal success, this time away to Cardiff Met.

On that occasion, and against TNS, it was striker John Owen who made himself the Aberystwyth hero with the match-winning goals in both games.

And when the fans’ vote was combined with a JD Cymru Leagues and independent voting panel to determine the winners of last month’s awards, Owen and boss Antonio Corbisiero came out on top.

Owen took the player of the month gong and Corbisiero claimed the manager of the month accolade.

Meanwhile, Holywell Town, Holyhead Hotspur, Afan Lido and Ammanford are also celebrating.

John Haseldin was voted Cymru North manager of the month after guiding Holywell to victories against Conwy Borough and Penrhyncoch, scoring nine goals and conceding one in the process.

Holyhead’s Liam Morris’ four goals across games against Buckley Town, Prestatyn Town and Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant earned him the player award.

Wins over Trefelin and current leaders Pontypridd Town saw Afan Lido boss Paul Evans named Cymru South manager of the month.

Player of the month went to Tristan Jenkins of Ammanford.

The striker added three goals to his tally for the campaign in November and is currently the joint-top scorer.
