Sims named top Premier League 2 player for November

By SFC Media Fri 09 Dec Josh Sims

Josh Sims capped off a month he will never forget by winning the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for November.

The 19-year-old was selected from a final shortlist of four to pick up the gong, which is voted for by opposing PL2 managers.

“I am delighted,” said Sims.

“I got told I was in the nominations for this, which I was over the moon about. But to actually pick up the trophy and be awarded it is brilliant.

“The standard in the PL2 is very high and you often get older players drop in to get game time, so it’s a great place to learn and progress.”

Sims was awarded the trophy, along with his Premier League debut ball, during a ceremony at Staplewood Campus earlier in the week.

The duo of awards now take his tally up to three for the month, having also been awarded Man of the Match for his debut display against Everton.

“It’s not a bad little collection!” he continued. 

“But my focus now is to continue putting in good performances. These things are just bonuses on top of that.

“Being involved in the first-team and getting my chance this month has been amazing. Hopefully I have taken it and can continue to do so.”

Sims fought off a final shortlist of Everton’s Liam Walsh, Swansea City’s Oliver McBurnie and Liverpool’s Ben Woodburn to pick up the award.
