Vauxhall Motors FC manager Mick McGraa has been voted the clear winner of the Step Six manager-of-the-season, despite the FA declaring the 2019/20 campaign 'null and void'.

In a nationwide poll, the Motors boss polled an amazing 43.6% of the vote. His nearest rival only received 11.7%.

It is recognition for a wonderful season, which sadly all turned sour due to the coronavirus in March, when the Motormen had effectively already won promotion, having won 27 of their 31 league fixtures on the back of an amazing run of 20 successive away victories.

Despite their impressive record though, Motors may not be entered into the forthcoming FA Cup.

The FA have received far more applications than they can accommodate and would normally use the previous season’s league form to determine who is entered into the competition.

But as they declared it 'null and void', it has been decided that all Step 6 clubs will be put into a hat and drawn out, to see if they enter.

It means the likes of Motors could miss out while the club at the bottom of their league could be successful. The draw is next Monday.

The Motormen face a third season in the NWCL Division One South, despite effectively ending the last two campaigns as runners-up and then almost certainly champions.

They have been joined by FC Isle of Man, who have replaced FC Oswestry Town, after the club folded in the summer.

Based in Douglas, this new club was only founded last year and have yet to play any competitive matches.
