Nya Kirby wins Blackpool Player of the Month award

3 May 2019

Crystal Palace Development midfielder Nya Kirby has been named Blackpool Player of the Month for April as he continues to excel on his loan spell with the Seasiders.

Kirby started five times for Terry McPhillips' men as he sought to help their push for the play-offs, and although the Tangerines will finish outside of League One's top six, Kirby has enjoyed an excellent individual month.

The 19-year-old bagged his first professional goal with an inspired volley against Luton Town, a game which Blackpool drew 2-2.

He earned 44.3% of votes from Blackpool fans to cap off an excellent period away from SE25.

Kirby discusses his time on loan, life in the north and that stunning goal in next week's official programme. Make sure to keep an eye out for vendors around the outside of Selhurst Park and grab your copy for just £3.50! To view digital programmes, just click below.
