Six wins in seven games, which forced Torquay United back to the top of the table, has duly earned Gary Johnson the National League Manager of the Month Award for April. 

"If people don't mind, I'd like to call this award 'The Club of the Month'," said the Gulls' veteran boss. 

"It's important to acknowledge the effort and work done by our staff, players and our board of directors in seeing us through this very difficult time of a Covid season. 

"We will do our best to see the season out - it should be very exciting, and we will do everything in our power to give the club and its fans promotion over the next few weeks." 

It is Johnson's second MoM award at Plainmoor this season - he also won it last October - as well as two more during the club's NL South Championship season in 2018-2019.
