In a turn of events that will surprise no one, Harry Clarke has been named Ross County’s Player of the Month for the second time on loan.

Ross County confirmed on Thursday that Arsenal loan defender Harry Clarke has won their Player of the Month award for October, having also been voted as their Player of the Month in August.

It was hard to see anyone else winning the award this month, after Clarke provided four goals and assists in his four games for the club, despite playing at right-back.

Most notably, Clarke provided a goal and an assist against Dundee FC in Ross County’s long-awaited first league win of the season.

The 20-year-old also provided an assist against St. Mirren, and he scored from distance against Livingston.

Clearly, the fans have taken notice of all of that. It’s always good to have the supporters on side during a loan spell.

Clarke has been a popular figure wherever he’s gone, with the Oldham Athletic fans also very fond of him. The first reply to Clarke’s latest player of the month award was from a supportive Oldham fan checking back.

There’s more work to do at Ross County. The team currently sit four points adrift at the bottom of the table.

They do have a game in hand, after their match against Hibs was repeatedly postponed. But that game will have to wait, as they face Rangers away on Sunday.
