Niall Keown has been voted the McCrea Financial Services Player of the Month award for March.
McCrea Financial Services sponsor both Glasgow Warriors and Partick Thistle and this year celebrate 15 years in sports sponsorship.
As long-term sponsors of the monthly player awards, shortlisted by the coaches and voted for by supporters, they brought together the two March winners at the mid-way point between the two grounds, Scotstoun and Firhill.
The on loan centre back really got into his stride in March playing like a defender far beyond his tender years. Indeed his partnership with Lindsay represented one of the youngest centre back pairings in the league but you would never have known it watching the two play.
On receiving the award, Niall said: “It’s fantastic from a personal point of view but the most important thing is that we made the top six. If my performances last month helped on that front then that’s brilliant.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time up here and the manger and players have been fantastic with me. Hopefully we can continue to push the teams above us – that’s where our focus lies now. There won’t be any let up from us, we won’t be caught taking the foot off the gas. It has already been fantastic to be involved with making a bit of history for the club this season but we certainly aren’t finished yet.”
Niall was presented with his award by Glasgow Warrior’s Alainu’uese at the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow.
