Fraser named Football League young player of the month
Ipswich Town winger Ryan Fraser has been named as the Football League’s young player of the month for August.
The Scot, on loan from Bournemouth, scored three goals in seven appearances for the Blues during the opening month of the season, adding a new dimension to Town in the process.
Commenting on the award, Fraser said: “It feels really good.
“It’s obviously an honour to get it and with the start the team and I have had, I’m keen to get some more now. Hopefully I can keep up my performances and just push on from here.
Presenting the award to Fraser, Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy added: “I was delighted to see Ryan pick up The Football League Young Player of the Month award for August and he fully deserves it.
