Peter Murphy has been named manager of the month after Annan Athletic's impressive run in Scottish League Two.

The former Carlisle United favourite has won the December award.

Annan, who are currently unbeaten in eight games, had a 100 per cent record in December, winning all their four league games during the month.

The impressive sequence included a 5-1 thrashing of leaders Kelty Hearts at Galabank on Boxing Day.

Murphy's award, which is sponsored by Glen's Vodka, follows the player-of-the-month prize for midfielder Dominic Docherty.

The former Brunton Park favourite has been in charge at Annan since 2017.

Annan sit third in the table ahead of tomorrow's home clash with second-placed Forfar.
