Mick McDermott has been named NIFL Manager of the Month for August.

The Glens drew with Larne and defeated Crusaders, Dungannon Swifts and Portadown to finish the month unbeaten.

McDermott said: “After a disappointing end to last season, we needed a good start to this season.

“Some people might say we haven’t played the top teams, because that’s people’s nature unfortunately, but I don’t look at it that way.

“Every team in the Premiership is capable of winning games. I’ve been very impressed by Newry City and Carrick Rangers have made a fantastic start to the season, so there’s no easy wins.

“You have to show up every week and play your best. If you don’t, you’ll lose. And that’s a great thing for the league.

“This is a great award to win and I’d like to thank the Football Writers’ for it, but I hope to win something better by the end of the season.”
