FEMI Ilesanmi has won The Press Player of the Month for August contest.

The transfer-listed defender only featured for the Minstermen during the opening month's final three fixtures but moved clear of nearest rival Reece Thompson with a man-of-the-match display during last weekend's 2-1 home defeat to Mansfield.

He took three points as The Press' star player during that game and the two bonus points on offer after topping our online man-of-the-match poll.

That tipped the balance in Ilesanmi's favour with Thompson having also received a point as our third-highest rated performer.

David Tutonda, meanwhile, got on the scoreboard with two points as our second-highest rated player against the Stags.
