North Wales Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray and winger Rob Massam have been shortlisted for League 1 coach and player of the year respectively.

The winners will be revealed in a Championship and League 1 Awards Special to be streamed on the OurLeague app next Wednesday evening (September 29) from 7.45pm.

After being shortlisted for coach of the year back in 2019, Crusaders boss Murray is once again in with a chance of picking up an award on the back of an impressive season for North Wales. Shortlisted alongside Murray are Coventry Bears’ Richard Squires and Workington Town’s Chris Thorman.

Massam, meanwhile, finished the campaign with a fine 22 tries alongside Barrow Raiders winger Tee Ritson. Shortlisted alongside Massam are Ritson, fellow Barrow star Jamie Dallimore and Workington’s Jamie Doran. 

Votes have been polled from the head coaches of all ten League 1 clubs to produce shortlists.
