Mick scores Aktivora Double

Sat, 15/01/2022 - 10:59

Our Head Coach, Mick McDermott has achieved the accolade of winning the Aktivora Manager of the Month for the second successive month, as he also collected the November prize. The December prize is Mick’s fifth Manager of the Month award since joining the club in March 2019.

In December, the Glens claimed league victories over Portadown, Carrick Rangers, Glenavon and Coleraine, as well as a hard-fought draw with Linfield at Windsor Park. The squad now sit three points off the top of the Danske Bank Premiership table,

Reflecting on December, McDermott said: “December is a hectic month, so I hadn’t even thought about this award, so it was a nice surprise when I got the call. I’d like to thank the Football Writers, and their sponsors Aktivora, for this trophy. 

At the moment, we are just going week to week, game to game. But we have been on a good run of form in recent times. I think the players deserve credit for that, as it’s not been easy. It’s a club effort.” 

Well done, Mick, a good January and the hat trick is on!
