Connah's Quay Nomads are pleased to announce that Michael Bakare has been named as the JD Welsh Premier League Player of the Month for March.
March was an outstanding month for The Nomads as the side won all four games - a 2-1 JD Welsh Cup Quarter Final victory over The New Saints was followed up with the miraculous 2-1 victory over Cefn Druids which saw The Nomads 1-0 down and reduced to nine men, before coming back to pick up the victory. Bakare scored in both of these games, including the late winner over Druids.
The fine form continued at Maes Tegid as The Nomads picked up an invaluable 1-0 victory before defeating Cardiff Met 3-0 at Deeside Stadium to see out the month. Michael Bakare was once again on the scoresheet and provided an assist for Andy Owens.
Bakare was named in the Sgorio Five-on-Form team on two ocassions during the month following the victories over Cardiff Met and Cefn Druids.
Following the announcement, Andy Morrison said "I'm delighted for Michael to get the recognition that his talent deserves. I have challenged Baks more than any other player this season, so to see him get this award for his hard work makes me very proud."
Well done Baks from everyone at the club.
