Hotshot Fleet striker wins Blue Square player of the month…
Ebbsfleet United’s 12-goal striker Magno Vieira has been named Blue Square Premier player of the month for January. The Brazilian, who celebrates his 25th birthday in just under two weeks, has rocketed into the top half of the goalscoring charts after a five-goal haul this month elevated him to joint sixth in the Blue Square Premier alongside AFC Wimbledon’s Jon Main.
Having already passed Michael Gash’s total for last season, Vieira is enjoying his most fruitful spell since he scored 10 goals in Carlisle United’s Conference play-off-winning season of 2004-05.
Blue Square’s Alan Alger commented on the BBC Non League Show, “As a club Ebbsfleet have had a fantastic month with Vieira… I’d like to say they’re not going down, it’s going to be so close down there. At the moment they’re going the right way.”
Stevenage’s Graham Westley won the manager of the month award.
