DOUBLE SUCCESS FOR MO IN MONTHLY AWARDS
Stewart Petrie and Andrew Steeves have been voted Ladbrokes League 1 Manager and Player of the Month for December, making it a double, double for the Club in the last 3 months.
Three wins and a narrow last minute defeat at home to full timers Falkirk, saw Petrie‘s side end the decade only one place from a Championship playoff spot, with defender Steeves sudden glut of goals proving pivotal.
Entering December in 6th place the Gable Endies began with a tough away win at Dumbarton before trouncing Clyde 4-0 at home. The Christmas fixture saw Petrie’s side battle back from 2-0 down against The Bairns, before cruelly losing out in added time, but fortunes were reversed last week, when man of the moment Steeves popped up in the box at Station Park to score a last minute winner in another 3-2 score line.
Petrie celebrated his 3rd anniversary in charge at Links Park during the month and has only lost 33 of his 113 league games in that time, with his side incredibly 4 points better off than at this point last term despite losing 6 in a row back in Aug/Sep.
Steeves has played almost 200 games for the Gable Endies and his goal at Dumbarton was his 6th for the Club. Netting for the first time in over a year, adding another 2 in the next 3 games crowned an impressive month.
This is Steeves’s first Ladbrokes Award and only the third Montrose player to win a League 1 Award following Graham Webster in October last year and Martin Rennie in December 2018, whilst Petrie will have to create more space in the cabinet to place it alongside his Monthly Awards for November 2017, December 2018, October 2019 and his Manager of the Year Award for 2017/18
