Cliftonville boss Tommy Breslin has been named BT Sport NIFWA Manager of the Month for April.

And in a double success for the champions, winger Chris Curran has won the Player of the Month prize.

Curran scored five goals during April as the Reds retained the Gibson Cup, including a hat-trick on the final day of the season against Crusaders.

It capped off an impressive debut season at Solitude for the winger, who arrived from Ballinamallard United last summer.

Breslin receives his eighth manager gong, and his third on the trot, concluding another stellar season for the Reds boss.

“It is fantastic to win this award, but it wouldn’t be possible without the players,” Breslin said.

“At the end of the day they go out and perform on the pitch, and they have done superbly well this season.

“We had a good final month to the season, and we needed it given how tight the title race was.”

Reflecting on Curran’s award, Breslin added: “Chris has done fantastically well this season.

“He had a bad injury at the end of last year, but he came back strong and scored some important goals for us.

“I am delighted for him.”
