Everton's Kieran Dowell has been given another reason to celebrate this week after winning April's Premier League 2 Player of the Month award.

"The award caps off a great season for him," David Unsworth, the Everton PL2 coach, told "Kieran’s had a brilliant second half of the season, his form has been outstanding, he’s scored and created goals for fun."

Dowell was selected by a panel of the Premier League Football Development from a shortlist generated by a poll of all the PL2 managers, who nominated the best individual performance from their opponents throughout the month.

He beat Rory Hale, of Aston Villa, Southampton winger Josh Sims, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and Donovan Wilson, a Wolverhampton Wanderers striker

He is the second Everton player to win the award in 2016/17, after Liam Walsh in February.
