The young playmaker has clearly impressed
and weighed in with seven goals and a number of assists in 38
appearances in all competitions.
"I’m absolutely chuffed to be nominated,
I’ve worked hard all season and with the amount of players of my age
doing so well, it’s great to get that recognition in the Young Player
award,” said the Academy graduate.
“I haven’t had a lot of injuries, played a
lot of games, scored a few goals - not as many as I would have liked -
made a few assists, set-pieces have been good. We’ve still 10 games to
go as well and I’ll be pushing on until the end of the season.”
Swindon remain outside the play-off
places after a midweek loss to Wolves and take on Bristol City on
Saturday. “Team-wise we haven’t been playing the best but hopefully we
can turn that around,” he added. “We have to keep going.”
