Gary's March to survival
23rd April 2014
It was a March to remember for Airdrie manager Gary Bollan as he guided his team to three wins and a draw, and his efforts have been recognised with the SPFL League One Manager of the Month award.
Defeat to big-spending Rangers at Ibrox was the only blip in a month that saw the Diamonds draw away to third-placed Stranraer and pick up impressive wins against Ayr, Arbroath and Forfar.
It was a run of results that saw Airdrie climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since October, and Bollan saw his men take their form into April.
A great win over Dunfermline, a draw at fellow relegation-scrappers Brechin, and Saturday's win against East Fife mean that the Diamonds have secured League One survival and can now look ahead to next season.
Although he is first to acknowledge the players' contribution to the turnaround, the work that Gary has put in to make this happen has been magnificent.
Congratulations on a well deserved award, Gary!
