Robins & Madden up for awards


Iron manager Mark Robins and striker Paddy Madden have been nominated for November’s manager of the month and player of the month respectively.

Madden scored three goals in three November games and has impressed with a series of tireless displays.

Robins’ impact has been felt fully at the club, albeit without his players playing at home during November. Two wins and a draw from three awkward away fixtures have restored confidence and belief at Glanford Park.
