John McGlynn, gaffer for Raith Rovers, has been recognized for his pitch perfect start to the 2010-2011 campaign by being named Irn-Bru First Division manager for the month of August.
While the award must have been well-received, the nice profile penned by Stewart Fisher in Sunday's edition of The Herald must have been almost as appreciated.
Raith's rise is a testament to careful planning and adhesion to a well-articulated vision. As all make clear, one swallow does not make a spring and success is far from guaranteed for Raith this season. Still, a month of good work is a month of good work. Here is to hoping that it is more of the same in September.
