Flavour of the Month
COLERAINE boss Oran Kearney is NIFWA’s Manager of the Month for February…
In February, Coleraine won the BetMcLean League Cup defeating Crusaders 2-1 in the showpiece final at Windsor Park. The Bannsiders also booked their place in the semi-finals of the Irish Cup with a 3-2 win over Larne, as well as claiming league victories against Glentoran and Institute.
Upon collecting the Belleek trophy, Kearney said, “This is hugely a reflection of what the team have been doing.
“Last Tuesday was our first home game in about five weeks, which makes the run all the more impressive to me.
“We lost at home to Crusaders and since then we have put together a run but it is important not to get ahead of ourselves.
“We’ve been able to bring in Curtis Allen and Stewart Nixon and their introduction has given the entire place another lift, too.”
It’s the 11th time Kearney has won the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association’s monthly award.
