Lloyd: I am learning more every single day

Young striker George Lloyd admits he is learning every single day as he continues his footballing education at the Robins.

Lloyd - who recently signed his first professional contract at the club - has enjoyed a big week after being nominated for the Sky Bet League Two apprentice of the year.

And the 18-year-old is also relishing his first team experiences as he learns off the players around him.

"I've really enjoyed the season," he said. "I have learned off all the senior pros, players like Wrighty, Pelly, Brian Graham, they all help you in different ways.

"Fozzie, Dawson and Winny, they all want to help when they can. If you have any questions the skip or gaffer will help you.

"When you are in the youth team you are two pitches away from the pros and around them every day.

"You can go to the players and get help. Even in the gym just talking to them, they will give you advice to put into your game."

Lloyd admits he also closely studies the form of fellow EFL Awards nominee Mo Eisa in training as he looks to follow in his goalscoring footsteps. 

"Mo has had a fantastic season," he added. "Watching him every day in training is really helpful and he has been great on and off the pitch to me.

"Everything he does you look at and then try and put it into your game

"When I first found out about the nomination this week I didn't believe it," smiled Lloyd. "I was buzzing and it just shows the hard work has paid off.

"The goals are what people see, but they don't see what you do off the pitch to try and get better.

"It might just be gaining that extra yard so you can get in front of someone to get a shot away. I'm working hard and keen to take my chance when it comes."
