YORK City manager Steve Watson has won the Vanarama National League North Manager of the Month award for February.

In his first full month at the Bootham Crescent helm, the ex-Gateshead chief steered City to four wins out of five, as the club moved up from 19th in the table to 12th.

On receiving the award, Watson said: "It is nice to be acknowledged by Vanarama and the National League for the improvements that we have all made. Both Micky Cummins and I set the team up but the players have to take on board the messages and win the games so, ultimately, this is an award for everyone at the club."
