HISTON defender Lanre Oyebanjo has won the Blue Square Premier "Player of the Month" award for October.

The versatile defender, signed from Brentford in the summer, has wasted no time in making an impact at The Glass World Stadium. Oyebanjo has been at the heart of a defence which went through the whole of the month without conceding a single league goal.

The Stutes recorded excellent victories at home to Salisbury and league leaders Crawley, as well as a hard fought victory at Ebbsfleet in front of the TV cameras. Setanta's Paul Parker, who won most of his England caps in Oyenbanjo's favoured right-back position said “Lanre has lots of potential. “He's tenacious, has plenty of energy and is not afraid to get stuck in.”

Histon find themselves in the Blue Square Premier play-off positions following their superb run.

In the Blue Square South the award goes to Dave Rainford of Chelmsford City. The former Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder found the net five times during the period as his side maintained their table-topping form. Rainford began the month with a hat-trick against Eastleigh and followed up by scoring the only goals in 1-0 away victories at Dorchester and Fisher.
