Vertonghen and Moyes win Barclays awards

Spurs defender and Everton boss claim player and manager awards for March

  • David Moyes led Everton to three wins out of three in March

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen and Everton boss David Moyes have won the Barclays Player and Manager of the Month Awards for March.

Vertonghen has been in fine form for Spurs in the Barclays Premier League and has played a key role in helping the club's challenge for a place in the top four.

The Belgian centre-half scored three goals during the month, two against Liverpool in the 3-2 defeat at Anfield and one against Swansea City in the 2-1 victory at the Liberty Stadium.

The 25-year-old joined Spurs from Ajax last summer and this is the first time he has picked up the award.

Moyes was named as manager of the month after a perfect March in which his side claimed maximum points from their three matches.

Everton defeated Reading 3-1 before recording an impressive 2-0 victory over defending Premier League champions Manchester City. They rounded off the month with a hard-fought win over Stoke City.

It is the second time this season that Moyes has been awarded the trophy, having won the Manager of the Month for September.
