Perth Glory’s sharp shooter Andy Keogh has continued his stellar debut campaign, taking out the gong for 'Player of the Month' for December, as voted by the Professional Footballers Association.
Keogh was instrumental for the Glory last month, scoring twice, once against the dramatic come from behind win over Sydney (2-1 away) and once in the Glory's 4-1 demolition of Central Coast Mariners at nib Stadium.
The 28-year old played a starring role in the team's three wins and draw in December, which saw it cement its place at the top of the table.
Voted on by all of the PFA’s A-League based members the Ireland International edged out Melbourne Victory’s Fahid Ben Khalfallah to become the third recipient of the player of the month award.
Having previously been nominated for PFA A-League Player of the Month in October and narrowly missing out, Keogh said it was an honour to receive the award.
“All the nominees for December were worthy winners and to have been chosen by the players as the winner is a fantastic feeling,” said Keogh.
“I didn’t really know what to expect before I came to Perth but so far my time here has exceeded any expectations I had and I’m thoroughly enjoying the Hyundai A-League.
“Finally I would like to thank my teammates, and coaching staff who have been fantastic since I arrived at the club and who've been brilliant week-in-week-out” he said.
PFA President Matt McKay said Keogh was extremely deserving of the player recognition.
“Andy has been outstanding this season and has played a huge part in Perth’s excellent season to date, both in the A-League and in the FFA Cup,” said McKay.
“His goals and general play have lit up the league and I’m certain he will win many more accolades"
