Greaves named EFL Young Player of the Month

9 October 2019

Jacob Greaves has been named the English Football League Young Player of the Month for September.

The 19-year-old defender has been rewarded for his outstanding performances in a Robins shirt in a month that saw the team record four wins and a draw in five League Two matches.

He has been recognised as the stand out youngster in all three Football League divisions.

It was a special month for Greaves who is on loan from Hull City - he also celebrated turning 19 on 12 September.

Commenting on his award he said: "I'm delighted to achieve the award. I think it's recognition for the performances I've put in, in September, and also the teams performances as well.

"We've gone through September unbeaten keeping a few clean sheet a long the way so I'm delighted to get the award.

"I've come here and I think I've impressed people and that's what I was aiming to do.

"I'm delighted to get the award at such a young age in big competition as well - it's a great award to get."

Manager Michael Duff added: "It's a real feather in his cap. I think it's a reflection on how well he's done, how well his teammates have done, the club are doing and it is good that somebody in the team is getting recognised. It means we're doing something right.

"For him he's hit the ground running. I think he has had 12 or 13 games on the spin now and he's not looked out of place. The fact that he is keeping Will Boyle out of the team at the minute probably speaks volumes."
