Harvey Barnes has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for March.

The attacking midfielder has been integral to Leicester City’s hopes of a Premier League 2 Division 1 and Premier League Cup double.

He scored twice and provided an assist in a 4-0 win over Liverpool that meant the Foxes replaced the Reds at the top of PL2 Division 1, where they remain with two matches remaining.

Barnes has also featured in his side's progress to the semi-finals of the Premier League Cup, playing in a round of 16 win over Southampton on 16 March. 

He received his award on a visit to Old Mill Primary School, where he and Harry Maguire presented the school's Under-11 girls team with shorts to wear for next month's Premier League Schools Tournament. 

"It’s really pleasing for me, the team’s had a great month – a great year, in fact, so to top it off with a personal award is really nice," Barnes said. 

"Hopefully, I can continue with the U23s, look to get some silverware and keep pushing to get a few minutes with the first team."

The 20-year-old was picked by the Premier League Football Development Panel, from a five-man shortlist that also featured Everton’s Antony Evans, Stoke City’s Thomas Edwards, Swansea City’s Jordon Garrick and Alex Palmer, of West Bromwich Albion.
