A golden sea­son for Coates striker Mark

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

COATES boss Gary Munns has hailed club tal­is­man Mark New­ton.

The pow­er­ful striker has claimed the Premier Di­vi­sion golden boot award af­ter top­ping the scor­ing charts with 22 league goals.

He pipped Kings Cliffe striker Gary Gibbs and Pinch­beck player-boss Ian Dunn to top billing. They both scored 21 times.

Now man­ager Munns is busy try­ing to per­suade New­ton to carry on play­ing next sea­son.

He said: “Be­ing top scorer in the di­vi­sion is a ter­rific achieve­ment for Mark and with­out him we would have re­ally strug­gled.

“He trou­bles de­fend­ers with his size and he is no slouch ei­ther. He does what he does very well.

“Mark has had a few in­jury prob­lems as well but hope­fully I can con­vince him to play again next sea­son.”

New­ton could even af­ford to see a penalty saved dur­ing Coates’ sea­so­nend­ing 5-0 de­feat at Moul­ton Har­rox ontues­day.
