Glenavon FCs, very own, Matthew Fitzpatrick is the NIFL Dream Spanish Homes Player of the Month for April.

The former Antrim GAA star bagged five goals in the month, finding the net against Ballymena United, Dungannon Swifts and Carrick Rangers – as the Lurgan Blues secured a spot in the European Play-Offs.

Upon collecting his first-ever monthly award, he said: “I’m delighted on a personal level to win this award, because so many great players have won it in the past. To have my name on a list alongside all those top names is an honour.

“I have to be honest and say I owe my teammates one, because they’ve pulled me out of a hole on a few occasions this season. No striker scores goals on his own. I’m very grateful to my teammates.”

We all look forward to watching Fitzy and GFC team in the up-coming European Playoff Game on Wednesday 10th May.
