Gidley named First Utility Super League Player of the Month

Gidley named First Utility Super League Player of the Month

Warrington Wolves’ Kurt Gidley has been awarded First Utility Super League Player of the Month award for April, run by the league’s title sponsors, in conjunction with League Weekly.

The third Wolves player in as many months to pick up the award, Gidley has continued to shine and lead his team in Chris Sandow’s absence and helped the Wolves secure top spot in the First Utility Super League. In his first season at Warrington, the former Newcastle Knight has been an influential figure for his side and his form certainly merited the recent two-year contract extension.

Kurt Gidley said: “This is my first season for the club and I’ve enjoyed every minute, being surrounded by talented teammates has helped me to make an impact and I have them to thank for this award. I’d also like to thank the Wire faithful, without them, we wouldn’t have a Warrington Wolves hat-trick, our third First Utility Super League Player of the Month award in a row!”

Wire supporter, Vicky Outen, said: “I was delighted when I got the call with the opportunity to present the trophy to Kurt. He’s been an amazing player for us since his arrival and played a big part in our current good form. If we can keep on putting in good performances, there is no reason we can’t be competing for silverware later in the season and maybe pick up a few more First Utility Super League Player of the Month trophies along the way!”
