Commenting on the success, Lynch said: “It’s an honour to collect this award. I’d like to thank the Football Writers’ for selecting me.
“However, the award isn’t just about me. It’s an award won by all the staff and the players.
“September was tough, so I was pleased we came through it unbeaten, but we have some even tougher games on the horizon. We will do our best to maintain this momentum.”
Next up for the east Antrim side in the Danske Bank Irish Premiership is an away trip to take on ninth-placed Newry City at The Showgrounds tomorrow evening (Friday, October 7 7.45pm).
