Awards double for Diamonds duo

December 7, 2019

In a perfect month for the club, Ian Murray and Dale Carrick have scooped November’s SPFL Manager of the Month and Player of the Month awards respectively.


Diamonds boss Ian has overseen a 100% win rate for his team with league wins over Dumbarton (3-1), Falkirk (2-1), Stranraer (2-0) and East Fife (4-0), which has seen Airdrie move to the top of the League One table. The Diamonds also recorded a 4-1 Scottish Cup win over derby rivals Albion Rovers to make it five wins out of five in November.


Ian told “It’s great for myself, the staff and the players. It takes an awful lot of hard work from everyone, so as delighted as I am to receive the award, it’s really recognition for what we’ve done as a club.


“Dale fully deserves his award for his contribution too, but it’s a team game - if Dale and I go out and play Raith Rovers ourselves this weekend, we get beat!”


Carrick is in agreement with his manager.


The striker, who has been in red-hot form with a superb goal at Stranraer alongside doubles against Dumbarton and East Fife, added: “It’s nice to win it, but like the gaffer says it’s a team game, and I couldn’t have done it without my team-mates!”


Our congratulations go to Ian and Dale for their well-deserved awards - long may their success continue!
