Glenavon goalkeeper Jonny Tuffey is December’s Player of the Month.

Incredibly, Tuffey only conceded one goal in December, keeping clean sheets against Carrick Rangers, Coleraine and Portadown as the Lurgan Blues took 10 points from the month.

Jonny was presented with his award earlier this week by Stephen Watson, chairman of the Football Writers’ Association.

“I’m delighted to win this award,” said Jonny. “I’d like to thank my manager Gary Hamilton as he gave me a chance again after I left Linfield and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. We’ve a great bunch of lads at Glenavon.

“Oddly enough, I probably made the most saves against Warrenpoint Town, the one game I conceded in.”
