Short-list announced for October Steffans Player of the Month

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The three-man short-list has been announced for the first Steffans Player of the Month award of 2015/16.

All three players named have had impressive starts to their campaigns in black, green and gold, with two of the three scoring tries and the third making an immediate impression at his new club.

Luther Burrell has started his season with a bang, carrying the ball impressively and scoring a try in the Aviva Premiership win over Newcastle at stadiummk.

Ben Foden missed the second half of 2014/15, but has been back to his best so far this season. Always a dangerous runner with ball in hand, Foden scored twice at stadiummk and led the team in terms of defenders beaten, metres made and clean breaks in October.

Jamie Gibson is new to black, green and gold, but has settled into his back row role superbly. Man of the match in the win over Newcastle, he came within touching distance of a first Saints try at the AJ Bell Stadium and was a standout performer at Sixways. Overall he has won more lineouts and made more tackles than any other player.

The short-list may have been decided, but who wins is up to you, the club’s supporters! To cast your vote just head to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/steffans before 5pm on Tuesday, November 10th. The winning player will take home a TW Steel watch, and everyone who votes will have their name put into the hat to win a £50 voucher for Steffans Northampton, too!

This is the third season that Steffans Northampton has sponsored the Saints’ Player of the Month award, but the jewellers have been a strong supporter of the club for many years, providing prizes for the End of Season Awards and great offers to Season Ticket Holders through their membership of the Saints Savers Club.

Steffans remains a family-owned business, with stores in Northampton and Market Harborough. For more information head to www.steffans.co.uk
