The Blues enjoyed a 100% record in the month with wins over Queen's University, Glentoran, Carrick Rangers, Cliftonville and Loughgall as they raced into an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

Healy said: "I'm pleased to win this award, not for my record, but because it means you're winning games. I'm the one collecting the prize, but this is a collective achievement.

"The players have been superb throughout the month and deserve the credit. We have a lot of big games coming up, starting with Larne on Saturday, so we have a lot of work to do."

It is the 16th time in his career that David Healy has won this award.
