Seven up-and-coming starlets have been nominated for September's Premier League 2 Player of the Month award.  

Nominees were selected by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches picked out the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches during the month.

The winner of the first monthly award of the 2020/21 youth season will also be decided by the Panel. 

September PL2 player shortlist
Scott Banks (CRY)

The 19-year-old midfielder marked his PL2 Division 2 debut in style as he scored twice and provided an assist for Kian Flanagan in Crystal Palace's dramatic 3-3 draw with West Bromwich Albion. It was an historic occasion for the Eagles, playing their first competitive match as a Category 1 Academy. 

Josh Bowler (EVE)

Having spent a season-long loan at Hull City, midfielder Bowler hit the ground running in 2020/21. In three appearances the 21-year-old scored to help the Toffees beat Leicester City 3-0 and was on the scoresheet again in a 4-1 victory against Derby County.

Mitchell Clark (LEI)

One of the 21-year-old's four September appearances came when he played 90 minutes in a 2-1 EFL Trophy victory against Hull. The defender featured three times in PL2 Division 1, the highlight of which was when he scored a wonder goal and kept a clean sheet in a 2-0 win at Manchester United.

Sam Greenwood (LEE)

Striker Greenwood wasted no time settling in following a summer move from Arsenal and netted four goals in his opening three Division 2 matches for Leeds United. The 18-year-old opened his account with a goal in a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers and followed that up with a hat-trick in a 3-1 win at Sunderland.

Brooklyn Lyons-Foster (TOT)

The basis of leaders Tottenham Hotspur's unbeaten start in PL2 Division 1 has been a rock-solid defence, and versatile defender Lyons-Foster has been key. The 19-year-old has helped Spurs to two clean sheets in their opening three fixtures, including London derby wins against West Ham United and Arsenal.

James McAtee (MCI)

England Under-18 midfielder McAtee kicked off the new PL2 Division 1 campaign with two goals and an assist in a 3-3 draw with Derby. He followed up with a superb strike in a 2-1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers. The 17-year-old also featured twice in the EFL Trophy, starting in the 4-0 win versus Scunthorpe United and making a substitute's appearance in a victory at Mansfield.

Liam Millar (LIV)

It's been a busy start to the new season for Canada forward Millar, who has made five appearances already, including two in the EFL Trophy against Wigan Athletic and Tranmere Rovers. The hard-working frontman, 21, has yet to score in 2020/21, but put in big shifts as the Reds beat Everton 1-0 win and then recorded a 5-3 success at Man Utd in Division 1.
