Nantwich Town have won the runners-up award in the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division Respect awards. The FA’s Respect programme encourages good conduct on the pitch, seeking to reduce players’ confrontation with match officials. This season saw the league put up prize money to go the clubs that had least dissent cautions / foul and abusive language dismissals.
With just 4 bookings for dissent all season, the Dabbers finished joint-second with Stafford Rangers – just one dissent booking behind Chester FC. Jimmy Quinn’s side had no dismissals for foul & abusive language.
Chairman Jon Gold said, “As a club we embrace the Respect philosophy from the first team right through the youth section. Jimmy has been working with the players stressing the need to show respect to match officials and clearly that has paid off.”
In the overall Evo-Stik NPL Fair Play league for the season, Nantwich finished joint 7th in the Premier Division, having had 61 cautions and 6 dismissals over 44 games.
