LIAM Boyce has put his latest personal success down to a good pre-season and playing in a relaxed atmosphere at Solitude.
Boyce has been named Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association Player of the Month for October.
The Northern Ireland striker scored four goals during the month to help the Reds surge to the top of the Danske Bank Premiership table.
“I am delighted. It is pleasing personally, but it shows how well the team is doing,” Boyce said.
“I am just glad to be scoring goals and thankfully we have been picking up points as well.
“I am enjoying my football this season. I have managed to link up well with Joe Gormley and we have been scoring foals.
“When Chris Scannell got injured he was very unlucky. He was coming back to fitness after the summer and he picked up that bad injury.
“It was bad luck for him, but we had to move on as a squad and Joe and me have been handed a chance.
“Joe is a great player. I know when he gets the ball something will happen. He always creates something and he is a good partner to have up front.”
