Jamie Lyon and Daniel Anderson have been rewarded for their efforts towards St Helens� latest accomplishments by being voted engage Player and Coach of the Month for June respectively. The presentation was made after last weekend's hard-fought victory against Hull.
St Helens is a club well known for producing scintillating performances, but none more so than in the last month, which included a powerful 75-0 defeat of arch-rivals, Wigan, in the Powergen Challenge Cup quarter-finals. In the engage Super League they have been no less impressive, scoring nine points from the last five games.
In a team that is performing so well together it is difficult to pick an outstanding player, but Jamie�s seven tries and five goals during the judging period (rounds 16-19) of the engage Super League, to which he last night added a remarkable long-range try and three goals, marks him out as a player in form.
Jamie Lyon said, "I'm really enjoying the dry weather and hard pitches. It's been a great month for me getting across the try-line, and I'm looking forward to maintaining my form to the end of the season."
Daniel Anderson, who joined St Helens in May, said, �This award is recognition of the players' efforts throughout June. The performances have been excellent and have helped set a strong platform for our challenge for the engage Super League title."
The winners each receive a commemorative trophy, along with a cash prize and a donation towards their club�s community projects.
