Perth Glory’s Andy Keogh continues his stellar debut campaign with the forward named PFA A-League Player of the Month for December.

Keogh was instrumental for the Glory during December, scoring twice and playing a starring role in the club’s three wins and a draw, which saw it cement its place at the top of the table.

Voted on by all of the PFA’s A-League based members the Ireland International edged out Melbourne Victory’s Fahid Ben Khalfallah to become the third recipient of the player of the month award.

Having been nominated for PFA A-League Player of the Month for October before narrowly missing out to winner Kosta Barbarouses, Keogh said it was an honour to receive the award for December.

“All of the nominees for December were worthy winners and to have been chosen by the players as the winner is a fantastic feeling,” said Keogh. “I didn’t really know what to expect before I came to Perth but it has exceeded any expectations I had and I’m thoroughly enjoying the A-League.

“Finally I would like to thank my teammates who have been fantastic since I arrived at the club and who have been brilliant on the pitch week-in-week-out.”

PFA President Matt McKay said Keogh was an extremely deserving recipient of the award.

“Andy has been outstanding this season and has played a huge part in Perth’s excellent season to date, both in the A-League and in the FFA Cup,” said McKay.

“His goals and general play have lit up the A-League and I’m certain he will win many more accolades.

“Finally I would like acknowledge the efforts of the other nominees Aaron Mooy, Roy Krishna and Ben Khalfallah who were all outstanding during December for their respective clubs.”
