Swindon Town striker Jake Young has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for November.
A constant threat, Young scored in each of his five games, notching six in total with a confidence that opposing defenders couldn’t contain. A lovely turn and finish at Stockport and a stunner curled in from 20 yards at Harrogate stood out.
Swindon manager Michael Flynn said: "Jake has been excellent for us but I’m certain he will appreciate the help of his teammates in receiving the award.
"Hopefully he can win December’s as well, as we as a club look to have a successful Christmas period!"
Young said: "I’m delighted to win this award for the second month this season and I’m thankful to the team and staff at Swindon for the efforts that have allowed me to have a good personal month, and such a successful personal spell with the club so far.
"It’s been an exciting last month for the club we are all looking forward to taking our recent good form into the Christmas period."
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Jake Young is the top scorer across England’s top four divisions this season, even outgunning Erling Haaland. He added to his tally with an impressive November, making him the standout choice for Player of the Month.
“No team could keep Jake Young out in November, he scored in every game, notching six in total. If Swindon are going to make a push for the playoffs, they need to keep their number seven firing.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “It was another impressive month for on-loan Jake Young who netted six goals in November which included a match-winning brace against undefeated Mansfield to help put his side in playoff contention.
“Young tops the scorer charts for League Two with 16 goals so far – two clear of his nearest rival and 2/1 favourite for the Golden Boot Macaulay Langstaff. Sky Bet currently rate Young as the second favourite at 4/1 but his future is a little bit up in the air at the moment as he could return to his parent club Bradford in January.”
The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
