After an impressive November, the Vanarama National League have honoured Wrexham with double-awards for the month.

Boss Dean Keates has scooped November's Manager of the Month award  and tireless midfielder Luke Young has swept up the Player of the Month accolade.

November saw Wrexham go unbeaten picking up an impressive away victory at Hartlepool United while closer to home we took maximum points in a 4-0 win over Sutton United and 1-0 win against Aldershot. Keates took his side from a poor run of form to five unbeaten and into the playoff picture to see out the month.

Meanwhile, Luke Young's excellent performances in the Dragons midfield has earned the player of the month honour as an integral part of our unbeaten run. Young popped up with a sensational strike against Aldershot at the Cae Ras while he's maintained his presence in the middle as a key asset to his side.

Manager Dean Keates was full of praise for his entire coaching network saying, "These accolades are always nice to pick up but the recognition should go to my entire staff.

"November was a great month for us as we returned to playing after time away, and a great response to some unsatisfactory results the month before. But like I say, it's nice to be recognised but the award is for the entire set-up in what has been a real team effort across the board."

The boss was also delighted for midfielder Luke Young on picking up his honour describing the midfielder as an 'asset'. 

"What you see is what you get with Youngy," Keates added. "He's been a huge part of the football club on and off the pitch since he's been here and is a real asset for us, and someone who perhaps goes unnoticed at times. He fully-deserves things like this but take nothing away from the rest of the lads who were fantastic in picking up some key results."

Midfielder Luke Young was all smiles as he picked up his trophy after training at the Racecourse Ground.

"It's nice you know, we just try to get on with things and to respond in the way we did after some poor form was really pleasing," he said. "It might be my name on the award but the rest of the lads are vital and it's just as much theirs as it is mine.

"There's a real togetherness in this squad and when the chips are down we know we've got what it takes to turn things around, and we showed that in November.

"On a personal note, November was a good one and the goal against Aldershot was an obvious highlight and that's pleasing for me as I look to contribute on the scoresheet as much as I can."
