‘UNDER-23s midfielder Lasse Sorensen has been nominated for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for October.

The Danish youth international was a standout figure for Kevin Russell’s side last month as they recorded some impressive results.

The 7-2 home victory over Norwich City was the pick of the bunch, with Sorensen at the heart of the Potters’ best ever result at Premier League 2 level.

The shortlist was chosen by the Premier League’s Football Development Panel after PL2 club managers nominated the best performances by opposing players in each of their matches.

As well as Sorensen, the other nominees are Tyreece John-Jules (Arsenal), Elias Sorensen (Newcastle United), Joshua Barrett (Reading) and Yan Dhanda (Swansea City).

The winner will be announced at 10.00am on Friday 9th November 2018.’

    I just hope that we can keep a hold of him and that he gets a chance at NUFC. I was absolutely disgusted when the club sold Lewis Gibson to Everton – it just said everything about the short-termism and the blinkered, grabbing nature of the owner.
    Good on you Elias – superb effort!
    I urge every one of you to think carefully about where the club is right now and to take a stand when the Wolves match comes round. Ashley’s worst nightmare is our unity. #BoycottWolves

      We might as well sell the young players as we are currently developing them to leave at the end of their contract and join another team.

      It’ll give all of the u23’s a lift if one of them could make the move up.

  • brin mcardle

    Give him a run out

  • Those players in the U23 will be much needed if we go down and have to sell most of our players.
