Castro said he is extremely proud to have been voted by his peers as the A-league Player of the Month.

“All players value the recognition of their fellow professionals and this award means a lot to me,” said Castro.

“I would like to thank my teammates, the fans and everyone who voted for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the A-League and I hope we can achieve something special this season with the club.”
