Michael Owen’s good form recent scoring spree has seen him voted the Newcastle United Carling Player of the Month for March.
Michael Owen – Newcastle United Carling Player of the Month for March
Michael scored in three successive games last month. The list of potential winners was put together by former captain Bobby Moncur and Lee Ryder, of the Evening Chronicle. The list was Owen, Habib Beye, Nicky Butt, Steve Harper and Geremi.
Michael polled 41 per cent of the vote, just edging out the Senegalese right-back Habib, who got 37 per cent.Â Owen will be presented with his Player of the Month award just before kick-off at Sunday’s Tyne-Wear derby at St. James’ Park.
“It was from the middle of March that we started to turn things around results wise and climb up the table.â€
“On a personal note, it was nice to get a little scoring run going, but there were some good performances across the team from all of the lads.”
Good words from the captain as usual, and we hope Michael can poke a couple in the net on Sunday too – that would be nice.
