The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Tom Black­ett

LU­TON Town mid­fielder Cameron McGeehan ad­mit­ted it was ‘amaz­ing’ to join the il­lus­tri­ous list of win­ners of the Foot­ball League’s Young Player of the Month award.

Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents in­clude the likes of MK Dons’ Dele Alli (now Tot­ten­ham), Birm­ing­ham City’s De­marai Gray (now Le­ices­ter) and Ful­ham’s Moussa Dem­bele.

And McGeehan joined them af­ter his im­pres­sive dis­plays for the Hat­ters, in­clud­ing three goals in five games in Fe­bru­ary.

Talk­ing about the for­mer win­ners, the 20-year-old said: “It is amaz­ing to be in the same sort of bracket as those play­ers like Dele Alli who open the door for ev­ery other young player, show­ing them what it takes to play in the Foot­ball League and then go on and hit the heights of scor­ing for Eng­land against France.

“I am re­ally priv­i­leged and happy to have won the award. It is a nice bit of recog­ni­tion for me.”

Lu­ton man­ager Nathan Jones said: “Cameron is a self-mo­ti­vated player. He trains hard, has the de­sire to do well, lis­ten – and with that kind of at­ti­tude and abil­ity that he has, we’re de­lighted to have him. Since I’ve come in he has been fan­tas­tic.”
