04 Oct 2018 : Freddie toasts successful September with monthly Bowland Brewery award

Our Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for September is Freddie Potter.

A key member of the Linnets' squad for the best part of four years, Freddie has taken to the EVO-STIK League like a duck to water on his return to the competition.

After coming back from a break in the USA with his new fiancée at the start of the month, Freddie came off the bench at half-time in the match at Colwyn Bay and played a key role in turning the game on its head.

His contribution included a sublime piece of skill to set up the only goal.

A week later, previously unbeaten Colne visited the Millbank Linnets Stadium, and Freddie not only opened the scoring in a 2-0 victory but also clinched the man-of-the-match vote in the regular poll on the Linnets Updates twitter site.

Our only league defeat of the month came against Atherton Collieries but even that couldn't keep the Linnets centre forward quiet.

Freddie's speculative effort from outside the box brought an equalising goal.

A Tuesday night at Mossley would bring about what will forever be known as one of Freddie's best ever moments for the club and without doubt his best ever goal!

With his side trailing, Potter acrobatically converted Connor McCarthy's cross with an overhead kick of the highest quality.

He then slammed home the winning penalty kick deep in added time to round off an exceptional month for the Linnets own Wizard!

Well done and many congratulations, Freddie!
