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.
