Following a poll on AFCDiamonds.com, the winner of the August 2016 Player of the Month award is Nabil Shariff. Nabil wins the first award for the 2016-17 season following his goalscoring exploits in the FA Cup during the month, with his hat-trick against Sileby Rangers.
The award is sponsored by P.W. House Jewellers of Rushden, who are continuing a long tradition of sponsoring this award, going back many years with R&DFC. Their business has been part of life in Rushden High Street for the last 60 years.
The award was presented by club chairman Ralph Burditt before the game against Romulus FC.
Details of previous winners of the award are available via this link.
