Gary Bollan has been voted Ladbrokes League 2 Manager of the Month for January after steering Forfar Athletic through the month unbeaten.
The League 2 leaders defeated Annan Athletic, Edinburgh City and Cowdenbeath and drew with Elgin City and Stirling Albion and are on a nine-match unbeaten run, 11 points clear of second-placed Arbroath, as they prepare to welcome Elgin to Station Park on Saturday.
Bollan, who was also Manager of the Month in both August and September, told Ladbrokes News: “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t nice to win this award multiple times this season but there’s a lot of hard work goes on in the background beyond me.
“I couldn’t do it on my own and it’s a whole effort by the club. Myself, the backroom team, the physios and the board of directors have put everything in place to help me build a quality squad and the volunteers at the club have been sensational.
“They put in so much work and effort behind the scenes and they raise a lot of the money that comes in and help us to budget for the season. We try and repay them by winning games.”
The Ladbrokes monthly awards are voted for by members of the Scottish media, with a Manager and a Player of the Month selected for each of the four divisions.
