Vincent-Young Nominated for Player of the Month
Wednesday, 9th Oct 2019 06:30
Blues right-back Kane Vincent-Young has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award for September.
Vincent-Young, who joined Town for £500,000 from Colchester in August, enjoyed a hugely impressive September in which he scored his first two Blues goals, the winner in the 1-0 victory at Gillingham, completing a 25-pass move, and his brilliant solo effort during the 4-1 home defeat of Tranmere.
Nominated alongside the 23-year-old are Bristol Rovers striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, fellow forward Mo Eisa of Peterborough and Oxford United wideman James Henry. The winner will be announced at 6am on Friday morning.
Vincent-Young suffered a groin injury at the weekend at Fleetwood but last night assistant manager Stuart Taylor said he is expected back in training next week.
“He’s been in having his treatment and [physio] Matt Byard’s confident enough that he’ll be back not too far away," he said.
“We’ve got a break now with the four days with no game at the end of the week, so we’re looking for him to be back in for training next week.”
Daryl Murphy was the last Town man to win a Player of the Month award, at Championship level back in December 2015.
Perhaps surprisingly, Blues boss Paul Lambert has not been nominated for the Manager of the Month gong, having won the August award, despite Town’s September League One record of three wins and one draw.
Wycombe's Gareth Ainsworth, Fleetwood's Joey Barton, Graham Coughlan from Bristol Rovers and Oxford's Karl Robinson are the nominated quartet.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
