Ben Deegan has been named as Glossop North End’s Player of the Month for September by the club’s supporters. 

The prolific striker has enjoyed a bright start to his career at Surrey Street, scoring six goals since arriving in the summer.

The former Ashton United and Warrington Town frontman netted five of those in Glossop’s seven games last month.

He scored in the 4-2 defeat at Ramsbottom United, 5-2 win over Brighouse Town and 2-1 victory at Ossett Albion before hitting a double in the 3-1 success over Colne.

Deegan was presented with his award following the Hillmen’s 2-2 draw at home to Radcliffe Borough last Saturday by GNE Supporters Club chairman Tim Barnett (pictured).

He follows in the footsteps of Jude Oyibo, who picked up the star player accolade for August.

Glossop, who were knocked out of the Integro Doodson League Cup by Mossley on penalties in midweek, sit third in the Evo-Stik First Division North ahead of this weekend’s trip to Trafford.
