Conor Hourihane named Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month

5 September 2014

Barnsley midfielder Conor Hourihane has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for August.

The Irishman served up a personal goal of the month competition with stunning efforts against Coventry City, Gillingham and Yeovil Town.

Just as vital was his headed goal-line clearance which preserved the 1-1 draw at Yeovil.

Barnsley manager Danny Wilson said: "I am delighted with the impact Conor has had here. The award is thoroughly deserved. I am sure he will be looking for more."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Three goals from midfield in his first five competitive games for Barnsley - that says it all."

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: "Arriving from Plymouth Argyle meant a step up in division for Hourihane.

"He has chipped in with three high quality goals - twice landing the first goal of the match at odds of 14/1 and 12/1 respectively in our first goalscorer market."
