Glentoran boss Mick McDermott is the Aktivora Manager of the Month for December.
It’s a second successive award for McDermott, who also collected the November prize.
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.
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.”
