Academy Player Of The Month

9 November 2016

Congratulations to Peter Holmes, who is the winner of the first EA SPORTS Player of the Month, he takes the award for October. 

This will be awarded to a member of the club's academy on a monthly basis and this first one goes to an Under 10 but Peter has been playing in the year above with the Under 11s.

Academy Manager Ben Smith said "In an era of the double step over, or the rabona as it known, it is refreshing to see a player who loves defending - that’s how you would describe Peter. 

"Peter can play either at centre back or right back. He shows passion and desire with aggression when defending, and a maturity above his years."

In terms of picking the winner, the academy management ask each age group manager to submit a POTM from their group. The management then sit down and decide on the overall winner to receive the award.
