Diego Castro makes it back-to-back to honours with the Perth Glory forward today named Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) A-League Player of the Month for March.

Having been crowned as the player of the month for February, Castro joins Bruno Fornaroli as the only player to have won the award twice in one season.

On target on three occasions during March, the Spaniard was instrumental in the Glory’s surge up the ladder.

Now eyeing up the club’s elimination final clash with Melbourne City, Castro said he was thrilled to be named as the PFA A-League Player of the Month.

“To win the award once is an honour, to have won it twice in one season is unbelievable,” said Castro.

“I’m extremely thankful to all the players that voted for me. As all players know the recognition of your fellow professionals means so much.

“I would also like to thank my teammates and everyone at the club for their support and I’m determined to enjoy more success in the coming weeks.”

PFA President Matt McKay said Castro’s outstanding form had made him an extremely worthy recipient of the award.

“Diego has consistently been amongst the league’s best, and for March this was no different,” said McKay.

“His goals and all round play have been huge contributors to what has been a truly remarkable A-League season.

“Finally, I would like acknowledge the invaluable support of PFA Major Partner LUCRF Super, Travellers Choice and Winning Edge Presentations who make this award possible.”
