Harry Redknapp and Scott Parker completed a Spurs double in the English Premier League monthly awards for November.

Harry picked up the Barclays Manager of the Month and Scott the Player of the Month after the team won three matches out of three in the Premier League against Fulham, Villa and West Brom.

Tottenham Hotspur continued their good run in the league, with a 3-0 demolition of Bolton Wanderers on Sunday with goals from Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe. They have now won six-successive matches in the league and stretched their current run to ten wins and a draw, to be third in the standings behind Manchester City and Manchester United.

November's accolade represents the second time this season Harry has taken the Barclays Manager of the Month award after taking the trophy in September.

"It's been a real team effort," said Harry. "The players have done the business on the pitch, they've been fantastic.

"My coaches have also been superb and it's a team effort, I'm just part of that team.

"We've had tough away games at Fulham and West Brom, never easy places to go and to pick up maximum points from those games was important."

Parker, meanwhile, has yet to taste defeat as a Spurs player -- starting all of those last 10 matches since his arrival on transfer deadline day in August.

Such has been the impact of the midfielder that he's also taken both September and October's Player of the Month awards as voted for by fans on Spurs Xtra, Twitter and Facebook.

"I'm delighted," said Parker. "It's a highly-regarded award. I'm really pleased to be selected and things have gone well over the last few months, long may it continue.

"It's great the manager has won as well. We've been on a great run of late, we've a difficult game now against Bolton on Saturday and let's hope we can keep it going."
