Scully claims September PL2 Player of the Month award

11 Oct 2019

West Ham player wins September prize after scoring or assisting 11 goals in only five appearances last month

Anthony Scully has won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for September. 

The 20-year-old scored eight goals in five matches for West Ham United in all competitions last month, adding a further three assists. 

Scully credits his fantastic form to the Hammers' coaches, who only six weeks ago moved him from the wing to play up front.

"I've changed position and I'm loving it," he told West Ham's official website after picking up his prize. "It felt natural. I've always been an attack-minded player. 

"When you join West Ham it's your aim to make it in the Premier League. This is a great achievement but I have to keep working hard and hopefully I get an opportunity with the first team to impress."

Superb September

Scully, a Republic of Ireland youth international, scored twice in all three of his Premier League 2 appearances and set up another two goals. 

His performances helped the Hammers beat West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough and Sunderland to end the month three points clear of Manchester United at the top of Division 2. 

He was also involved as West Ham beat Valencia in the Premier League International Cup, and starred in a remarkable EFL Trophy success at Newport County. 

West Ham were trailing 4-1 but came back to win 5-4, with Scully scoring twice yet again and getting an assist. 

Scully follows August winner Billy Gilmour, of Chelsea, in being named PL2 Player of the Month by the Premier League's Football Development Panel.

Also on the shortlist were Folarin Balogun, Antony Evans, James Garner, George Hirst, Rosaire Longelo, Michael Olise and Callum Slattery
