The Spiders defeated Hamilton Accies and Arbroath in the cinch, with 22-year-old Savoury scoring four times, and also ended Montrose’s interest in the Trust Trophy, with boss Coyle insisting that both his and Grant’s recognition is shared across the club.
Owen said: “I am delighted to be chosen as the Glen’s Manager of the Month however it is an award that belongs to everyone at Queen’s Park. Both on and off the park we pulled in the one direction during 2022.”
“My name might be on the Manager’s Award however if it was not for the work put in by the coaching staff that directly support me, the players and the people that work so hard for the club in a whole host of other roles then it would have not been won.”
“I am delighted for Grant to be recognised as he has been in terrific form. He showed a real eye for goal last month but I am sure that he will be the first to thank his colleagues who set up the chances for him.”
Owen added: “Last month was exciting as we had the two games back at Hampden and I would like to thank everyone that turned out in good numbers to watch us there. We also took a good number of fans up to Arbroath two days before Christmas. It was great to put on a good display and win 4-1 for them as their backing was tremendous.”
“It was nice to end 2022 on a good run and start 2023 with a win over Partick Thistle however no-one at Queen’s Park will be getting carried away. We have worked hard to achieve the results we have recently but we will need to work even harder to match them.”
Nine goal Savoury said: “A year ago I was making my way back into the game at Peterhead after a period out due to injury. To secure full-time football in the summer and then to be recognised with this award just a few months later is terrific.”
“I enjoy playing in such an attack minded team but I know that I have to contribute more than goals to keep progressing.”
