Cliftonville winger Donnelly secures monthly player award

Martin Donnelly celebrates scoring against Ballinamallard

Cliftonville winger Martin Donnelly has been named the NI Football Writers' Player of the Month for December after a string of fine displays.

Donnelly weighed in with three goals in the month as the champions rediscovered their league form and booked a place in the final of the League Cup.

"It's been a good month for both me and Cliftonville," said Donnelly.

"I was delighted to get a few goals, as I don't score that often. It's great to be winning matches again."

Donnelly's team-mate Ryan Catney was second while David Cushley, who scored the Goal of the Month against Crusaders, was third.
