NIFWA Chairman Stuart McKinley presents Loughgall's Nathaniel Ferris with the Belleek trophy for Championship Player of the Month.

NIFWA CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYER OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2019

Loughgall's Nathaniel Ferris is NIFWA Championship Player of the Month.

In August, Ferris bagged seven goals including an impressive hat-trick against Newry City. The Villagers, who play Queen's University on Saturday, are joint top of the Bluefin Sport Championship.

The 20-year-old has previously played for Portadown and Dungannon Swifts.

Upon collecting the Belleek trophy, Ferris said, "We have made a fantastic start to the season and thankfully I have scored a few goals.

"Ards and Newry City have both made slow starts, and ourselves and Dundela have probably surprised a few people. I think Dundela and Portadown will be the team's to beat this season."
