Linfield star Jordan Stewart is the NIFWA Danske Bank Premiership Player of the Month for January.
Stewart scored in each of Linfield’s three games during January, including a memorable winner in a 2-1 victory over Glenavon at Mourneview Park.
Reflecting on a successful January, Stewart said, “I’ve been in good form in recent weeks, but the most important thing is that we’re back on top of the league.
“Larne were top over Christmas, so in January we were determined to catch them. We’ve managed to do that, even though we slipped up against Cliftonville. Overall, it’s been a good few weeks for us.”
The former Glentoran and Swindon Town forward believes he is close to the form of his life.
He said, “I worked hard during lockdown to ensure that I was at my best when football returned. I’ve carried that into the new season and I would say this has probably been my best run of form since joining Linfield.
“Some people say I’m inconsistent, but I think I’ve shown recently that I can produce the goods on a regular basis.”
Cliftonville’s Rory Hale was runner-up in the Danske Bank sponsored award while Coleraine goalkeeper Gareth Deane took third spot.
