A commanding performance in Bray Wanderers' shock victory over Shamrock Rovers at Tallaght propelled Gary Dempsey towards the Airtricity/SWAI Player of the Month award for April.
Dempsey (30), who has spent time in England, Scotland and Ireland during a colourful career, is enjoying his second stint at the Carlisle Grounds.
"I'm very pleased with how the season is going so far. It's a really challenging and interesting league to be involved with because there are only a few points between a heap of teams," said Dempsey, upon receiving the award yesterday.
"I suppose our plan going to Tallaght Stadium was to not get beaten and we played very well on the night as a team. I felt we fully deserved the three points," added Dempsey.
