Kavanagh named January's PL2 Player of the Month

14/02/22

On loan striker Calum Kavanagh has won January 2022's Premier League 2 Player of the Month award after five PL2 goals in the month.

The 18-year-old forward claims the prize following a prolific month in which he netted five times in Premier League 2 Division 2, alongside the two goals he scored in the Premier League Cup.

Kavanagh, a Republic of Ireland Under-19 international who has since joined Town on loan, began January with a brace in a comprehensive 5-0 PL Cup triumph at Queens Park Rangers.

He then struck twice in a 2-1 win at Aston Villa, before scoring a hat-trick in a 3-2 home victory over Sunderland.

“I’m really happy," said Kavanagh after being presented with his award. "I have had a little bit of experience in Premier League 2 and really enjoyed it. I managed to score a few goals.

"It’s been massive in me building to first-team football now. This is just the start. Hopefully I’ll do great things here at Harrogate and win a few awards as well."

Kavanagh topped an eight-man shortlist that also included Conor Bradley (Liverpool), Lewis Dobbin (Everton), Leo Dos Reis (Birmingham City), Wanya Marcal-Madivadua (Leicester City), James McAtee (Manchester City), Jack Vale (Blackburn Rovers) and Oliver Wright (Southampton).

He was selected as the winner by the Premier League Football Development Panel after PL2 club coaches chose the best performance by an opposing player in each of their league matches during the month.

Congratulations, Calum!
