Chelsea's Mason Burstow has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for March.

The 19-year-old forward claims the prize following an impressive month in which he netted three times in Premier League 2 Division 1.

Burstow started March with a goal in Chelsea's 3-1 win at Manchester United, followed by another strike in a 3-1 win over Liverpool, before he netted for a third consecutive match in a 1-1 home draw with Everton.

Burstow topped a seven-man shortlist that also featured Tayo Adaramola (Crystal Palace), Luca Barrington (Brighton & Hove Albion), Kian Breckin (Manchester City), Sonny Perkins (Leeds United), Jeremy Sivi (Middlesbrough) and Layton Stewart (Liverpool).

It is the second time in 2023 that Burstow has been nominated for the award, having also been shortlisted for January’s prize.

He was selected as the winner by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches chose the best performances by an opposing player in each of their PL2 matches during March.
