Peterhead Manager, Jim McInally, picked up the Third Division IRN-BRU Manager of the Month for August and after an impressive start to their league campaign where his men came within seconds of defeating Rangers only to be pegged back to 2-2, won away at Clyde and saw off promotion rivals Queen’s Park.

The 48-year-old former Nottingham Forest, Dundee United and Scotland midfielder is in his second season with Peterhead having previously managed Sligo Rovers, Morton and in Division Three with East Stirlingshire.

The Blue Toon started the month by giving SPL new boys Dundee a tough cup match in the Scottish Communities League Cup, only defeated on penalties, before coming so close to defeating Rangers, who scrambled and injury time equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Balmoor Stadium.

Peterhead followed that with a 2-0 win away to Clyde and a 1-0 victory at home to Queen’s Park. A 2-0 win over Montrose on 1 September puts them a point ahead of Clyde before the international break
