National League North side Scarborough beat league leaders Darlington and Peterborough Sports, while also drawing with Southport.

And that was enough for the league to hand Jonathan Greening the manager of the month award.

Greening took charge of Scarborough in May 2021 and led his team to promotion last season.

Scarborough have maintained their good form and are sixth this term, five points off Darlington after losing their last two games.

But The Seadogs are still in the play-offs and going strong under Greening, who is in his first managerial job.

Greening, 44, now looks unrecognisable with a bushy grey beard and smart trim.

He was once famous for his luscious long locks as he spent three years at Old Trafford and was even part of the historic 1998-99 team.

After featuring alongside the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville and Roy Keane, he left United in 2001 to get more regular football.

The 5ft 11ins ace, born in Scarborough, then spent a further nine seasons starring in the Premier League, racking up 252 appearances in England’s top flight.

But he finished his career with Yorkshire side Tadcaster Albion in the Northern Premier League Division One North, eventually retiring in 2017.
