Richard Brush is today named Cliftonville Football Club’s Sean Graham Player of the Month for October.
In an online poll conducted among Reds fans, Brush – who also claimed September’s award – took the honour after keeping clean sheets in all four of his Danske Bank Premiership appearances during the period, as well as saving two penalties in the Reds’ shoot-out victory over Linfield in the County Antrim Shield.
After shutting out Glentoran thanks in no small part to an outrageous injury-time save in Cliftonville’s 1-0 win at The Oval, Brush produced similar heroics to help see off Larne the following week before that Shield success at Windsor Park.
Further clean sheets against Institute and Dungannon Swifts followed and, though the Reds ended October with League Cup elimination by the Blues, Brush excelled yet again with another spot-kick save.
In addition to congratulating Richard on landing our latest Sean Graham accolade, the Club also places on record our thanks to the many hundreds of supporters who took the time to get involved and we look forward to similar engagement when it’s time to determine November’s star performer in a few weeks’ time.
