SAINTS boss Marieanne Spacey-Cale has been named the Women’s National League manager of the month after an unbeaten April which saw two titles.

Spacey-Cale led her side to clinch the National League South title with a 2-0 win over bitter rivals Portsmouth at St Mary’s earlier in the month.

Saints then followed that up with the National League Cup win over Huddersfield in the final at Solihull Moors that same weekend, to become double winners.

They will now face North league champions Wolves at Stockport County on Saturday, May 21, for promotion to the Championship next campaign.

But Spacey-Cale has been recognised for the impressive month which included six wins and a draw to see Saints over the line in those two competitions.
