Newington striker Zach Barr is the Northern Ireland Football Writers' Association's Championship Player of the Month for August.
The striker bagged five goals in the month including a hat-trick against Institute. Thanks to Barr's goals, Newington are the surprise early leaders of the Playr-Fit Championship.
Barr said: "If you told me we would be top of the league after the first few weeks of the season, I wouldn't have believed you.
"At this stage, we are just ticking the games off and getting as many points on the board as we can. We're feeling confident and feeling like we can push on."
