Glentoran boss Eddie Patterson has been named as the February Northern Ireland Football Writers' Manager of the Month.

The East Belfast outfit went through the entire month unbeaten in their Irish Premiership, Irish Cup and Setanta Sports Cup fixtures.

"We've had a lot of games for part-time players so I'm delighted with how things have gone," said Patterson.

"All credit goes to the players and the backroom staff who have been fantastic and done all that I've asked of them."

"They deserve particular credit given the well publicised problems that the club has had off the pitch.

"There has been a lot of uncertainty at the club and it's been difficult for many of them, but their application has been great."
