Norwich City’s Jamal Lewis has won the EFL Young Player Of the Month Award For September.

The 20-year-old left fullback helped Norwich to win five out of six league games, keeping three clean sheets and he also played twice for Northern Ireland during the month.

This award is slightly different this year, having been altered so that a player must have been a club developed player and been registered with his club for at least 12 months after their U19 season.

Upon receiving the award, Lewis told the club’s official website: “It’s a nice achievement to have, but of course it helps with the team performances we put in during September. It’s a proud moment for me, a nice milestone and hopefully, I can kick on and improve.

“I set myself some targets this year, to be involved more in the attacking phase whilst also remaining responsible at the back. The results have reflected well, it always helps individual performances when the team is winning games.

“QPR was probably the highlight of the month. I felt I put in a good performance and it seemed to play out like a home game for the team. We really dominated the proceedings, set the tempo and we could have won by a bigger margin.”

Wasn’t that the game that Steve McLaren said wasn’t even won by a “proper goal”?!

Well done, Jamal. Keep it up fella.
