Forbes given young player prize

Motherwell players

Ross Forbes has scored five goals for Motherwell this season

Motherwell's Ross Forbes has been named young player of the month for August in the Scottish Premier League.

The 19-year-old midfielder received his Clydesdale Bank award having made an excellent start to the season after breaking into the first-team.

Forbes was last week handed a two-year contract extension by Jim Gannon, who became Motherwell manager this summer.

The midfielder has scored five times, one against St Johnstone being an early goal of the season contender.

Forbes, who was on loan to Dumbarton and was in the side that won Division Three last season, has helped Motherwell remain unbeaten in their four SPL matches.
