Hennessey's heroics secure award
Stockport County
Stockport goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has been named as League Two's player of the month for February.

The on-loan Wolves man did not concede a goal during the month as County won all four of their league games.

Hennessey has since helped the Hatters to break a Football League record after they recorded their ninth consecutive clean-sheet victory on Saturday.

The other award contenders were Spencer Weir-Daley of Lincoln, Grimsby's Ciaran Toner and Wycombe's Tommy Doherty.

County's latest win, a 3-0 success against Swindon, broke a League record which dated back to 1888.

It leaves Wales Under-21 international Hennessey still unbeaten since joining on loan in January, after 810 minutes of play.

Manager Jim Gannon said: "It's been a fantastic achievement by my players, I'm absolutely bursting with pride.

"The lads have been unbelievable, and what an emphatic win it's been to break the record. It's not really sunk in yet."

"Wayne wasn't stretched all that much today, but he has has always shown confidence and we've got confidence in his ability.

"I'm running out of superlatives to describe my players. They've all been outstanding and they're all heroes."
