Jake Young nominated for Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month

Forward nominated for monthly accolade in August

5 September 2023

Swindon Town forward Jake Young has been nominated for August’s Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award.

A dream month for Young who scored seven goals, including four in 24 minutes against Crawley, in just four games. 

The winner will be announced at 6am this coming Friday (8 September).

The 22-year-old will come up against the following players in the hope of receiving the first monthly award of the 2023/24 season:

Abo Eisa (Grimsby Town) - winger

Staged his own goal-of-the-month competition with a trio of strikes from outside the area among his four goals in five games. Defences knew what he would do, but still had no answer to stunning angled efforts against Mansfield and Walsall.

Will Evans (Newport County) – striker

Six goals - half of Newport’s August total - in five games for a striker who offers a physical presence on and off the ball. Dominant in the air, he also showed his strength and pace to run beyond defenders with two goals at Forest Green.

Davis Keillor-Dunn (Mansfield Town) - striker

Amid a swathe of Mansfield injuries, Keillor-Dunn stood tall in August with five goals and an assist in five games. Playing behind the front two, he arrived late in the box for two precise strikes at Crewe and a superb curler against Stockport.
