Gateshead's Neil Aspin is Manager of the Month

Gateshead Boss Neil Aspin has been named the National League's Manager of the Month.

The Tynesiders have been trying to get back into the football league for more than half a century, but a 100% record during February has moved them within touching distance of the promotion playoff places and earned boss Neil Aspin something for the mantlepiece.

Really pleased because it means that the team is doing well and we're very hopeful that we can continue. We're not getting carried away. I've known a good friend of mine in football win manager of the month one month and then be sacked at the end of the next month, so you don't take anything for granted."
