Singa-Goal S.League Player of the Month: Moon Soon Ho

The Woodlands Wellington star is our pick as the league's best player for the month of July after the Korean striker banged in five goals in three games to help them reach fourth
With five goals in his last three games, Woodlands Wellington striker Moon Soon Ho has fired himself to the top of the S.League's goalscoring charts and now, the Player of the Month accolade for July.

The Korean star's red-hot form in front of goal helped the Rams to victory in all three of those league matches and they now sit in fourth place. That is a lofty position, considering that Woodlands have ended the past three league campaigns as wooden spoonists.

Moon grabbed his first goal of the month when Woodlands staged a stunning comeback from 2-0 down to beat Brunei DPMM 5-2 at the beginning of July, scoring the third of the night with a cool finish to give his team a lead they never relinquished.

The 32-year-old next banged in the match-winner when they upset second-placed Albirex Niigata 1-0, waltzing past two players before hammering the ball into the top corner six minutes from the end.

Things got even better for Moon in their final match of the month against the Courts Young Lions. He gave Woodlands an early lead in the seventh minute before adding two more goals in the second half to complete his hat-trick, helping them to their second 5-2 win in July.

Those goals have brought his tally for the season to nine in the league, making him joint-top scorer alongside Geylang International's Jozef Kaplan, Albirex's Kazuki Sakamoto and Tanjong Pagar United's Monsef Zerka.

Moon's intelligent play is also another feature of his game in addition to his scintillating streak in front of goal, and he is well deserving of being named the best player in the league to cap off a superb month.

Woodlands supporters will hope that Moon can keep up his impressive displays as they push for a top-six finish, while the rest of us look forward to enjoying more goalscoring performances!
