“To be recognised by the managers of the league over the course of a season is a great feeling. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my teammates at Spennymoor.”

Jason Ainsley, who brought Taylor back to the club for a second spell in 2015, expressed his delight for the forward: “It’s a fantastic accolade and great recognition that Glen has been nominated in the team of the year.

“As his manager I think it’s fully deserved for the season he has had, and now he needs to replicate that as we prepare for next season.”
