Steelmen defender Shaun Hutchinson has been named the Clydesdale Bank Premier League Young Player of the Month for April.
Motherwell had a mixed month recording a win, a draw and a defeat in April, however Shaun Hutchinson was a key performer for his side throughout.
‘Well began the month with a 1-1 draw away to Hibs with Hutchinson constantly breaking down the oppositions attacks as he helped his side pick up a hard earned point at Easter Road. Motherwell then suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss at home to Celtic before going on to secure a comfortable 5-1 win at home to St Johnstone.
Hutchinson’s performances throughout the month were pivotal in helping Motherwell secure their highest ever points total in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League and with it secure a place in the Champions League qualification round next season.
It was Hutchinson’s commanding performances from defence along with his ability to break up the opposition’s play that led the panel to vote him as their Clydesdale Bank Premier League Young Player of the Month.
A panel of Scottish football experts chose the award winners from a shortlist which included the top three fans’ nominations from Clydesdale Bank’s football website, www.cbfootball.co.uk.
