The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIS­TOL City will be aim­ing for their sec­ond tro­phy of the week when they take on Wal­sall this af­ter­noon.

That’s be­cause wing-back Joe Bryan has scooped the Foot­ball LeagueYoung Player of the Month award for Fe­bru­ary.

The 21-year-old played a key role on the left flank, help­ing the Robins to four wins and a draw in the six games in which he fea­tured.

“When­ever I play I want to do as well as I can but it’s ex­tra spe­cial be­cause it’s for my home-town club,” he said. “It makes me feel proud be­cause for a long while there haven’t been many play­ers com­ing through the academy to the first team but that’s chang­ing.

“I still don’t feel like I’ve made it. I’ll say I’ve made it when I’ve re­tired and played 500-odd games!”

Manager Steve Cot­ter­ill added:“He’s won his place through hard work and ded­i­ca­tion. We’re de­lighted for him.”

WIN­NER: Joe Bryan
