By Graham Luney

The trophies keep coming for Crusaders boss Stephen Baxter after he netted the BetMcLean Manager of the Month for April from the Northern Ireland Football Writers Association.

Baxter guided his troops to a remarkable three title triumphs in four seasons at the weekend.

He said: "It's always an honour to win this prestigious award and I would like to thank the Football Writers for selecting me.

"April has been a very stressful but rewarding month.

"I am tremendously proud of my players, that have been fantastic for me this season and they are all very worthy champions."

Baxter joins legendary bosses David Jeffrey, Roy Coyle and Ronnie McFall in pocketing three championships.

Paul McLean, of award sponsors BetMcLean, presented Baxter with the trophy following his side's end of season heroics.
