YORK City’s on-loan striker Bradley Fewster has won the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award for February.

The 20-year-old Middlesbrough forward netted five times for the Minstermen during the month and took the honours head of fellow shortlisted trio Scott Boden (Newport), Rod McDonald (Northampton) and Oscar Threlkeld (Plymouth).

Fewster also shared The Press’ City Player of the Month accolade with fellow attacker Michael Coulson and manager Jackie McNamara reckons such recognition is deserved, saying: “His goals have been very good.

“In the last two games, he hasn't really had any opportunities to score and the ball has been up in the air too much and expecting Bradley to win headers is not his game. But he has proven that, when it's on the deck in the penalty box, he will get us goals if we create chances for him.

"He has a great habit of scoring goals and is a great finisher for a kid. He's our joint-top scorer in the league despite only being here a few months and other aspects of his game, like his strength, will improve with age.”
