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.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
