MONTHLY AWARDS AT THE DOUBLE FOR MIGHTY MO
Stewart Petrie and Graham Webster have been voted Ladbrokes League 1 Manager and Player of the Month for October, giving added reasons for celebration as the Club marks its 140th Anniversary.
Three straight wins saw Petrie guide his side from bottom spot to within 4 points of a promotion play off place with Webster’s form and goals playing a major part in this turnaround.
Tough away wins at Clyde and Airdrieonians were followed by a late goal at home to secure victory against Stranraer, lifting the Angus club to 7th in the table.
Petrie had a tough start to his fourth campaign in charge at Links Park, when six back to back defeats followed a draw on the opening day of the season.
Knowing his team were playing well enough, the Boss kept faith in his squad and now his 100% win record in October has been bookended with victories against Peterhead and East Fife, making it 5 league wins on the spin.
Webster has played over 200 games for the Gable Endies, but is arguable in the form of his life at present, having netted 5 times in his last 5 games, including crucial goals against Clyde and Airdrieonians in October.
This is Webster’s first Ladbrokes Award and only the second Montrose player to win a League 1 Award following Martin Rennie in December last year, whilst Petrie will have to create space in the cabinet to place it alongside his Monthly Awards for November 2017, December 2018 and his Manager of the Year Award for 2017/18
