ANDY Preece is the Welsh Premier manager of the month for October.

During the month, Airbus won 13 points out of a possible 15, scoring a total of 16 goals and conceding only four.

Victories against title contenders The New Saints and Prestatyn Town took the Wingmakers to the top of the table for only the second time in their history.

"It's great news for the club and myself," Preece said.

"A lot of hard work has gone into this season by everyone associated with the club and with teams like Bangor and TNS always there or thereabouts - this award really means a great deal."
