Luther Burrell has been named the Steffans Player of the Month following one of the closest supporter votes in the award’s history.
The Saints Nation had their say and the centre - who was in sparkling February form - edged out the equally impressive Lee Dickson and Tom Wood, just 14 votes separating all three nominees.
Burrell was arguably the star performer in a dramatic win at Harlequins that kick-started the Saints’ current run of five wins in six Aviva Premiership games. Having played a part in all three tries at the Stoop, he would go on to top the charts for carries, metres made and defenders beaten by a back in the month.
Thanks to award sponsor Steffans, Burrell receives a TW Steel watch and is joined on the roll of honour by TW Steel Clubman of the Month, community coach Phil Powell.
“Phil has helped massively over the past few months through his involvement with Tresham College in Kettering,” director of rugby Jim Mallinder explained. “With the constant wet weather making the training pitches unplayable at times, the use of the college’s 3G facility has been invaluable for both the first team and Academy. Phil has been a massive help in facilitating that, often at short notice.”
Meanwhile, David Leppard’s name has been pulled out of the hat of voters to win a £50 voucher at Steffans.
For over 30 years Steffans has been the pre-eminent jewellers in Northampton. Steffans remains a family-run business, with stores in Northampton town centre and Market Harborough, and a multi-award winning website.
