The Accolades Keep Coming For McLeod

Posted on Sunday, February 9th, 2014

Keith McLeod’s sensational run of scoring in 14 consecutive games came to an end yesterday following our 0-0 draw at home to East Kilbride. Keith’s run of 14 is now a joint British record with Evelyn Morrison who achieve the same number of consecutive games with Falkirk during their 1928/29 season.

After yesterday’s match, Keith was also awarded with the Colin Campbell player of the month award for January. It means Keith wins the award for the third time in a row, and remains the only player to have ever been awarded it!

Speaking after the game, Keith admitted he had mixed emotions.

“I’m delighted to have picked up the player of the month award again. There are a lot of quality players in this division so have won this three times, really is an honour. I’m actually surprised to have won it again, perhaps I’ve been aided by the fact that at times in January we were one of the only teams to be playing every week!”

On the subject of his consecutive run coming to an end, Keith added:

“I’m really proud that I’ve been able to equal an 85 year record and obviously it would have been nice to have kept it going, however my number one goal is for us to lift the Lowland League and to do that we need to win every game. It’s disappointing to drop two points today, however it could still be a vital point gained come the end of the season. A few people have asked if the record run coming to an end means that I’ve got that ‘monkey off my back’ however the only pressure I’ve ever felt under is to do what I can for the team so we can continue winning.”

Keith has had a sensational season so far, bagging 23 goals this season. Since joining us from Civil Service Strollers in 2002, Keith has scored 267 goals in 385 appearances.
