Karl Clark has been named as the Canada Life Player of the Month for February and March combined.
The St George’s defender has enjoyed a fine season for the Glencrutchery Road side, helping Johnny Myers’ men remain in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
During the two months, Clark was key to the Saints recording wins over Union Mills and DHSOB - keeping clean sheets in both - as well as largely frustrating title hopefuls Ayre United in a narrow 1-0 loss to the Tangerines.
As such, he impressed Eric Clague’s player ratings panel to the tune of eight points during February and March, therefore he topped the standings two points ahead of Peel’s Tom Wood.
Like Clark, Wood was in inspired form and helped the westerners claim a creditable draw with reigning league champions Corinthians as well as wins over Old Boys and Marown which have helped the Sunset City side move well clear of the relegation zone and up into a healthy sixth place in the table.
Half a mark behind Wood in the monthly standings on 5.5 points is Douglas Royal’s talented youngster Dominic McHarrie-Brennan.
In a similar vein to Clark and Wood, McHarrie-Brennan has enjoyed a fine campaign for the Ballafletcher side and is currently occupying a top-10 place in the overall seasonal rankings for the 2021-22 season.
His performances in recent weeks have also earned him the title of Young Player of the Month for February and March.
