MO SCOOP DOUBLE WIN IN SPFL MONTHLY AWARDS
Montrose FC pair Stewart Petrie and Martin Rennie have won the SPFL Ladbrokes League 1 Manager and Player of the Month Awards for December.
Top scorer Rennie played in 4 of the Gable Endies 5 December fixtures, netting in each one and catapulting the League 1 newcomers into a promotion play off place just in time for Christmas.
Impressive stats indeed for the 24 year old, who just 12 months ago was playing Junior football with Lochgelly Albert before moving to Links Park in the January transfer window.
As a first time manager, Petrie is demonstrating experience beyond his years, having taken the helm in December 2016 with the Gable Endies bottom of League 2.
In less than 2 seasons he guided the club to their first title success in 33 years and is well on the way to consolidating their place in League 1, having taken 7 points out of 9 from the top three sides in December.
This award completes a hat-trick for the 48 year old, having previously won the League 2 Manager of the Month for November 2017 and the Manager of the Year for 2017-18.
