Carroll Lands Carling Award

NUFC Logo Newcastle United FC

Andy Carroll is the club's Carling Player of the Month for November and will receive his award on Saturday

By Dan King

After scoring four goals in five games in November, Andy Carroll was the runaway winner of the club's monthly Carling Player of the Month award.

He will be presented with a crystal trophy ahead of Saturday's game against Liverpool by fan Dave Morrison, who won the chance to hand over the award.

Carroll scored against Arsenal, Blackburn, Bolton and Chelsea to take 72 per cent of the vote. In second place was Cheik Tiote, who gained 13 per cent, while Jose Enrique had nine per cent.

It is the second time this season that Carroll has won the award - he also got it in August. Hatem Ben Arfa won September's vote while captain Kevin Nolan was presented with the accolade for his performances in October.
