Awards keep coming for cup kings!

1 week ago By David Watters

It's fair to say Hyde United's fans, players and officials are currently enjoying life in the EVO-STIK League after the Tigers collected two accolades and three points in three days!

After roaring at Doncaster Racecourse last Thursday night when they were named 2017 Club Mirror Football Club of the Year, the Tigers were presented with one of October's three Northern Premier League Club of the Month awards on Saturday before beating Tadcaster Albion 4-1 in front of their jubilant fans.

The EVO-STIK League North winners were named as one of October's performance kings alongside Altrincham in the top flight and Corby Town in EVO-STIK League South and Hyde United chairman Steve Hartley is pictured being presented with their prizes - an engraved glass trophy and a bottle of spirits - by NPL representative Paul Hatt before kicking off at Ewen Fields.

Under the management of Darren Kelly, the Tigers were the standout candidates for their division's accolade and worthy winners of a first monthly honour of the historic 50th anniversary season.

As well as earning the chance to host MK Dons in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup live on the BBC with a 2-0 win at Scarborough Athletic in the fourth and final qualifying round in October, the Tigers progressed in both the Integro League Cup and Manchester Premier Cup as well as climbing to fifth in the table with three wins from three outings.

United already had an extra spring in their step at the weekend after beating more than 1,000 clubs from across the UK to Club Mirror Magazine's prestigious award for their community work to follow in the footsteps of 2016 winners Ramsbottom United.

More than 600 guests at the 26th year running of the BT Sport sponsored awards saw the Tameside club beat five other EVO-STIK League finalists on the night to the national accolade - Basford United, Radcliffe Borough, South Shields, Shaw Lane and Ramsbottom United.
