May named League One Player of the Month


Alfie May has been crowned Sky Bet League One Player of the Month for October.

The forward, who bagged seven goals in six league games last month, saw off competition from Jordan Gibson (Carlisle United), Luke Leahy (Wycombe Wanderers) and Conor Shaughnessy (Portsmouth) to win the award.

After being presented with his prize at Sparrows Lane, May said: "I'm delighted to win Player of the Month. It's an award that recognises your individual success as a player, but it also goes to your teammates because you can't succeed without them. 

"Overall, in October, we did well and I can share this one with the lads."

Head Coach Michael Appleton added: “Alfie deserves the recognition after a month where he played really well and scored seven league goals. He has such a hunger for the game and has been a real pleasure to work with since I joined the club. 

“He scored a lot of his goals last month playing in the number 10 role. It’s a position we felt, with his ability, work rate and football brain, would suit him and he has been excellent there, taking full advantage of the opportunities his teammates have been creating for him.”
