The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Pippa Field

FUL­HAM star­let Moussa Dem­bele bagged the Foot­ball League Young Player of the Month award for Oc­to­ber – and then set his sights on more hon­ours.

Hav­ing rep­re­sented France at var­i­ous youth lev­els, the cur­rent un­der-20 in­ter­na­tional had a stand­out month in the Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship, scor­ing five goals as the Whites went un­beaten in Oc­to­ber.

Dem­bele scored in a 1-1 draw with Leeds United be­fore fir­ing dou­bles in the back-to-back wins over Read­ing and Bris­tol City.

“I feel very happy to win this tro­phy but it is just the be­gin­ning,” said the 19year-old for­mer Paris Saint-Ger­main young­ster. “I need to keep go­ing, keep do­ing what I am do­ing and keep im­press­ing ev­ery­one.

“For a young player it is good to have a run in the first team and know that peo­ple around you be­lieve in you. That's what hap­pened.

“I took my chances and I’m very pleased with that. I am still young and still learn­ing the game. It is a good tro­phy but hope­fully there is more to come.”

WIN­NER: Moussa Dem­bele
