Dimitrie Apai became the second W Connection player this season to scoop the Wendy's Player of the Month.
The 22-year-old Suriname forward was named the Wendy's Player of the Month for December, a status achieved by his Connection teammate Andre Toussaint for October.
Defence Force forward Devorn Jorsling, a name synonymous with personal awards, nabbed the Wendy's Player of the Month for November.
Apai was selected after inspiring the Savonetta Boys’ attack with 4 goals from four games in December. The diminutive forward said he is committed to performing for his club, and like teammate Toussaint, he wants to win the Digicel Pro League 2016-17 crown although Connection are one point behind rivals Central FC with two games left.
Toussaint, a veteran playmaker with arguably the best ball control around, was brilliant for Connection by leading the Savonetta Boys out of the trenches earlier this season.
While Jorsling, a former TT Pro League Player of the Year and multiple-time Golden Boot winner, was instrumental in guiding his team from the play-offs all the way to the final of the First Citizens Cup which they eventually won by edging Ma Pau Stars 1-0 in December.
And to add yet another Player of the Month to his wonderful career, the Defence Force forward was proud as can be. He however credited his performances to the support of his teammates.
Jorsling, the Pro League all-time top scorer, boasting one of the most deadly left foot in the league, scored an astounding 9 goals from six games in all competitions during November, seven of them scored in the First Citizens Cup which also won him the Player of the Tournament.
