Macca wins MOMSaturday, 12th Jan 2008
Congratulations to the Irn Bru Phenomenal First Division Manager of the Month for December.
Jim McIntyre praised his troops for earning their new Manager an early award. To win the Manager of the Month after just 8 days in the job will be a hard one to beat but Jim was in little doubt that the fruit of his team's labour was the reason for his immediate success:-
"I am absolutely delighted, you only get the Manager of the Month if your players have done well for you. The award is for all concerned; the players have been fantastic - without them I wouldn't be sitting here as a manager. I would like to show my gratitude to them, it is a big pat on the back for them."
The presentation that was made at Pitreavie on Friday was the last thing on Macca's mind. After a week where he secured Gerry McCabe and Stephen Wright as his Assistant and First Team Coach Jim admitted:-
"I've been far too busy to think about awards. Now that we have got the management team in place we can get to work."
