Middlesbrough striker Bradley Fewster has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for February, the Football League has confirmed.
Currently playing for York City on loan, his fine form bagged him five goals in as many games during February, with his efforts helping the Ministermen to victory against Notts County and Exeter.
The 20 year-old striker is on loan from Middlesbrough, and he saw off competition for the award from Newport County’s Scott Boden, Northampton’s Rod McDonald and Oscar Threlkeld of Plymouth Argyle.
“It was the first month since I’d joined the club where I was played up front on a regular basis and I think I proved with the goals I scored it’s my preferred position,” Bradley Fewster told the Football League website.
“I played with a few different partners during February and it was a great experience. I’m just glad to have been able to score regularly.”
“I was always confident I could score at this level and I’m just happy I’ve been able to show that.”
“It’s been great to gain vital experience and score goals for York City, but ultimately it’s about helping the club stay up and hopefully I can net a few more between now and the end of the season to make that happen.”
Bradley had only ever gained 2 appearances for Boro in the League Cup in 2014, scoring 1 goal against Preston North End in his second outing for the club.
Fewster later joined Preston on a season-long youth loan in November 2014. However, the loan was cut short for personal reasons after only two weeks.
Playing for York City has given him the chance to really show potential and hopefully the youngster will be on to bigger and better things.
York currently sit in 23rd in League Two and are in danger of relegation to the Vanarama National League.
