Auchinleck Talbot's Craig McCracken has been named as the club's Player of the Month for December.

The defender was awarded the prize, sponsored by Caboodle Eyecare (formerly First Sight) after some solid performances during the month.

December was a strange month for Talbot, as the freezing temperatures meant they only played two games over the course of the month.

Talbot conceeded one game in those two games - a consolation goal from nine-man Hurlford in a 3-1 win for The Bot on Hogmanay.

This match came four weeks after their only other game of a the month - a penalty shootout defeat to Cumnock Juniors in the Scottish Junior Cup at Townhead Park, after a goalless draw.

Talbot's defensive resilience meant that McCracken was the perfect pick for the player on the month award.

Tommy Sloan's men host Largs Thistle at Beechwood Park on Wednesday, January 18 in their next West of Scotland Football League Premier Division fixture.

Kick off is at 7.30pm.
