Congratulations to Mark Oxley who has been named December’s DeVines Player of the Month!
Southend’s No.1 received 46% of the vote, ahead of Simon Cox (25%), Jason Demetriou (20%) and Stephen McLaughlin (9%).
It is the second time this season the goalkeeper has won Player of the Month.
Mark Oxley was in fine form in Decemeber. Despite conceding 13 goals, Blues had their number one to thank on many occasions when he kept their one-goal advantage at the time by saving a penalty against Oldham. Oxley was also in top form against Bristol Rovers, and had he not produced a number of fine stops then the scoreline could have been worse than 3-0. Again, against Scunthorpe Oxley was called upon before going off at half time.
Oxley will be presented with his award on 13th January when Blues face FleetwoodTown.
