Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter and in-form striker Ruzaigh Gamildien are flying high.
The pair have been named the DStv Premiership Coach and Player of the Month award winners for December/January (5 December 2020- 10 January 2021) respectively.
Truter, who guided the Birds to the elite league, has continued his remarkable start to the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season, winning his second individual monthly award for two successive months.
The Birds remain unbeaten in 11 games.
In the period between December 5 and January 10, Swallows won three matches (Maritzburg United, Black Leopards and Cape Town City) and drew twice, including an impressive come-from-behind victory away in Thohoyandou at Leopards.
Meanwhile, PSL journeyman Gamildien, who is also Truter’s trusted source for goals at the Birds this season was chosen as the best player during this period owing to his consistent display in attack for the league’s new-boys.
His five goals, including a brace each in victories over Maritzburg United and Cape Town City, have been key in keeping Swallows on the second position on the log standings.
Truter and Gamildien edged colleagues in Mamelodi Sundowns’ Manqoba Mnqgithi as well as SuperSport United duo of Kaitano Tembo and Bradley Grobler, who were also hugely praised for the outstanding job they’ve done for their sides during this period.
For their recognition, Truter and Gamaldien will each receive a trophy as well as R7, 000 courtesy of league sponsors, DStv.
