We are delighted to announce that Max Watters has been voted as the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for December.
Max scored another six goals in six games within the month of December for the Reds, including two superb finishes as a substitute at Mansfield Town and a spectacular hat-trick against Barrow, in a game that some Crawley fans were lucky to attend.
Head Coach John Yems said: “Max has been a top lad since we picked him up at the beginning of the season and has given us goals that have been so important.”
Max added: “It’s an honour to win this award. It’s all thanks to the lads in the team and the management staff. John Yems and Lee Bradbury have been amazing with me since I joined here a few months ago.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Crawley are flying high in sixth place in Sky Bet League Two mainly thanks to Max Watters goals.
“The striker scored another six goals in six games during December to take his total to thirteen goals in fourteen league games since joining the Red Devils in October.
“Watters now sits in third place in the scorer charts and a 10/1 shot (from 50/1 at the start of the month) to finish the season as Sky Bet League Two’s top marksman.”
Max has returned to training and will hope to be available for selection on Sunday in our game against Leeds United in the Emirates FA Cup.
