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.
