Steven Ferguson
Loughgall captain Steven Ferguson has been the stand out player for The Villagers in February.
Midfielder Ferguson put in an exemplary performance against Harland & Wolff Welders in a 2-0 win at Lakeview. Ferguson follwed that display up, with an impressive turn at Inver Park in a 3-2 win over Larne. Ferguson celebrated that performance with a crucial goal.
Darragh Hanaphy
Newry City are the team most likely to catch Ballinamallard United this season and one of their most important players is Darragh Hanaphy.
Hanaphy was the man who scored Newry City's crucial goal in their 2-1 win over Harland & Wolff Welders, a goal which kept The Mallards lead down to ten points. Hanaphy also featured in a 1-1 draw against Institute at the start of the month.
Jason McCartney
If you're going to win a league you need cool heads in your team, and Ballinamallard United's Jason McCartney has proved he has nerves of steel, this month.
The league leader's midfielder scored two crucial penalties for United as they won 2-1 against Tobermore United and Warrenpoint Town. McCartney also scored a goal from open play against Tobermore to secure his place amongst the nominees.
Dwayne McManus
Dergview have it all to do this season. With their run in the Coca-Cola Intermediate Cup and the bad weather in Castlederg, the County Tyrone side have found themselves with plenty of games in hand.
This month they managed crucial victories over Harland & Wolff Welders and Ards, as well as a draw against Glebe Rangers. A crucial player in that run was Dwayne McManus, who got the winning goal for the Dergs, in their impressive 2-1 win away to Ards.
Ryan Murray

BANGOR'S utility man Ryan Murray has made a major impact for the Seasiders since returning from injury.
Murray is best known as a defender, but he is also capable of playing in midfield or up front, and it's as a forward where he's done the most damage this month. Murray scored Bangor's 4-3 win away to Banbridge Town, as well as in their 2-0 victory over Institute. He also featured in his sides important 1-0 win over Limavady United.

It's from those five clubs that this month's nominees for the Belfast Telegraph IFA Championships Fans Player of the Month, come from.
