Cadamarteri: Three goals
Dundee United's Danny Cadamarteri and Motherwell's Ross Forbes have claimed August's SPL awards.
Experienced striker Cadamarteri has won the Player of the Month prize while Forbes is August's Young Player of the Month.
29-year-old Cadamarteri has settled quickly to life in Scotland with three goals in his first three SPL games for Craig Levein's side.
He scored both goals in his competitive debut against Hearts and another in a 2-1 win over Falkirk.
Youngster Forbes, who spent time with Dumbarton last season, scored twice in August to help him earn the coveted award.
"I'm delighted to pick up the award but these things really are about the team as opposed to individuals," Forbes said.
"It's been brilliant that the manager has shown the faith in me and I am trying to repay him and the club for that. So this award is good from that point of view."
