Caltex Socceroo Taggart named K-League’s Player of the Month

Adam Taggart’s sensational goalscoring form has seen him rewarded with the K-League Player of the Month award for July.

The Caltex Socceroos striker was almost unplayable in July, scoring seven goals in just six league appearances to shoot to the top of the K-League scoring charts.

The 26-year-old’s exploits for Suwon saw him picked in the K-League All Stars squad that took on Italian champions Juventus.

And his goal frenzy continued in that match, coming off the bench to score the third goal in the All Stars’ 3-3 draw against the Serie A giants.

Taggart, who has eight caps for the Caltex Socceroos, ended the month with another goal in a 2-0 win over Daegu, which was set-up by compatriot Terry Antonis.

“I think this honour represents the enjoyment I’m having in football at the moment," Taggart said.

"Big thanks to all my teammates and Suwon Bluewings fans for a great July.”

He also scored in the Korean FA Cup to help the Bluewings advance to the Semi Finals of that competition.

Taggart’s Bluewings are currently sitting in seventh spot in the K-League ahead of a tough trip to fourth-place Gangwon this weekend.
