Gavin Whyte surprised to win November Player of the Month

Gavin Whyte is the NI Football Writers' November Player of the Month, much to his own surprise.

The Crusaders winger earned the award with nine goals in seven games over the course of the month. He netted a hat-trick against Carrick, two against Dungannon and Ards, a later winner against Dundee United and also struck in the victory over Linfield.

Nonetheless, this was still an accolade that took him by surprise. He said: "November was fantastic for me, scoring nine goals in the month but I still wasn't really expecting to win this award.

"I'd like to thank NIFWA for picking me, it means a lot to me to win this award."
