Bohemians midfielder Danny Mandroiu was today named as the SWAI (Sports Writers Associstion of Ireland) Player of the Month for June, following superb performances which also included scoring twice in their Dublin Derby victory over Shamrock Rovers.
The 20 year-old, who manager Keith Long has predicted can go straight to the top, claimed the award ahead of Dundalk pair Sean Gannon and John Mountney, Ciarán Kelly of St Pats, Derry City’s Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe and Shelbourne’s Ciarán Kilduff. It was the third month in a row that Mandroiu was nominated for the award.
Mandroiu said, “It’s third time lucky. It’s nice to win the award, but I couldn’t have done it without my team-mates.”
The midfielder, who returned to Ireland after a 4-year spell with Brighton & Hove Albion, scored a tremendous goal in that win over Rovers, a goal that went viral across social media.

He’s quick to also praise the Bohemians coaching staff, “I’m learning from the older lads around me, and Trev (Croly) and Keith (Long) are great too. They know how to man-manage and they let you express yourself, which I like.”
“Bohs is a special club and the fans are unbelievable, so I just have to thank them.”
