Magic man Miller does it again

It's been a while since one man dominated the JC Manager of the Week award, so hats off to Craig Miller who followed up the win over first division UJIA with an even better one, free-scoring Shirley Park.

Few, myself included, gave them a chance against a team containing the likes of league top-scorer Jamie Kent, Saul Conway, Nicky Plotnek and Stefan Benfredj, but rather than run scared, Miller got his troops to execute the perfect game-plan in a stunning 6-4 victory.

A hat-trick from Alex Elf helped them along the way, but Miller's tactical reshuffle, where he went five in midfield to starve Kent of service, ultimately did the trick.
