TALK about going out in a blaze of glory.
George Boyd's planned final appearance at Stafford Rangers may have been a damp squib but he at least left the club with something tangible.
The 21-year-old won his third successive player of the month award from The Comet before embarking on a League career with Peterborough United.
Boyd, a previous winner in September and October, claimed the joint title for November and December, with some more superb displays.

Boyd, who currently lives in Kent but will be moving nearer to his new club Peterborough, continued: "The move has become a reality now.
"I've loved it at Stevenage and it was a big thing to move up and stay in digs when I was only 16.
"Wayne Turner was brilliant with me and all the youngsters.
"Not everyone liked Graham Westley but he was also brilliant for me. He helped to bring me on physically and that part of my game."
Boyd trained with his new colleagues for the first time on Monday.
He added: "I already know some of the players at Peterborough through the England side and also from the Conference.
"I want to prove myself as a League player and I will play anywhere to start with.
