Askew named December Player of the Month

Blackburn Rovers loanee Josh Askew was voted Ramsbottom United's "Player of the Month" for December by the club's supporters.

Highly-rated Josh, 18, has been with the Rams on a Youth Loan since October in an attempt to improve his chances of making the first team squad at Ewood Park, and his excellent performances on the left-hand side of the pitch during his time at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium have deservedly won him this accolade.

He is seen here presented with his award from the sponsors, the Irwell Works Brewery, before last Saturday's home 1-0 win over Bamber Bridge.
