Lewis-Potter named EFL Young Player of the Month

16 October 2020

Keane Lewis-Potter has been named the EFL Young Player of the Month for September.

The 19-year-old scored three goals in seven league and cup appearances during the month, helping the Tigers win all three league matches and reach the Carabao Cup third round.

September started with the young forward netting the winning penalty in a shootout against Sunderland in round one of the Carabao Cup.

He opened his season account three days later with a diving header in the EFL Trophy against Leicester U21s and netted three minutes into the League One curtain-raiser at Gillingham.

The Hull-born striker played his part in victories over Leeds and Crewe before finishing the month with another header in a 2-0 win at Northampton.

It is the second successive season a Hull City player has won the September award, after Jacob Greaves was recognised for his performances while on loan at Cheltenham last term.

Lewis-Potter also follows in the footsteps of former Tiger Jarrod Bowen, who won the prestigious award back in August 2017.
