Manchester United academy graduate Shola Shoretire has won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for February.
It’s the latest achievement for Shoretire, who signed his first professional contract with the club last month and has since made first-team debuts in the Premier League and Europa League.
The 18-year-old’s impressive showing in the 6-4 U23 victory over Blackburn at Leigh Sports Village helped him get his first-team chance and ultimately led to him receiving this award.
Shoretire netted a hat-trick for Neil Wood’s side as he starred alongside new signing Amad, who briefly shone for the reserves before making his way into Solskjaer’s first-team setup.
“Proud to receive the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for February!” Shoretire tweeted after being photographed with the prize on Monday.
It is unlikely that Shoretire will be eligible for too many more PL 2 awards as he is now a regular member of Solskjaer’s match day squads.
The youngster could again be involved in some capacity in the Europa League second-leg against AC Milan at the San Siro on Thursday.
