Castro and Troisi Named PFA A-League Players of the Month


Spanish Maestro Diego Castro has scooped the PFA’s player of the month award alongside Melbourne Victory’s James Troisi for February.

Voted by all of the PFA’s A-League based members, the pair enjoyed a brilliant month to finish equal top of the voting.

Castro has been on target four times during February, and has helped create a number of chances for his teammates.

He said it was an honour to have been named as the PFA A-League Player of the Month for the second time in two seasons.

 “I’m very humbled to be voted by the players as the PFA A-League of the Month,” said the 2016 Johnny Warren Medallist.

 “February was a very good month for the club and we are determined to continue to improve as the finals approach. Thank you to all of the players who voted for me and congratulations to James.”

PFA President Alex Wilkinson said Troisi and Castro were both worthy recipients of the players’ recognition.

 “We saw some fantastic performances during February and none more so than by Diego and James,” said Wilkinson.

 “They have been instrumental for their clubs this season and I’m sure they’ll continue to be as the finals series approaches.”

Castro and Troisi will face off this weekend when Glory travels to Victoria to take on the Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

Kick-off is at 4.50pm (WST).
