Eddie Patterson, December 'Manager of the Month'

PATTERSON NAMED TOP BOSS AS REDS DOUBLE UP

CLIFTONVILLE boss Eddie Patterson made it a Solitude double when he was named Carling 'Manager of the Month' for December by the Northern Ireland Football Writers Association.

He guided the Reds to victory over Crusaders and Linfield and follows hard on the heels of striker Stephen Garrett who picked up the Players' award.

Dedicating the honour - the sixth of his career - to the backroom staff at Solitude, Patterson said: ""I'd like to thank the Football Writers and Carling for their continued support but this award goes to my assistant Tommy Breslin and coach Paul Trainor.

"The players have been vital and their attitude and commitment has been outstanding after a tough start to the month.
