Tyrese Campbell named EFL Young Player of the Month

8 April 2019

Shrewsbury Town striker Tyrese Campbell has been named EFL Young Player of the Month for February.

Campbell hit the ground running following his January loan move from Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City, scoring three goals in as many games against Burton Albion, Peterborough United and Doncaster Rovers respectively.

Upon receiving the award, the 19-year-old said: "It's great that my work has been recognised, hopefully I can push on from this now by scoring some more goals to help the team stay up.

"I was a bit shocked when I found out I'd won it, I didn't believe it. I'm really happy to have won, it was a good month for me - we went on an unbeaten run and I scored some goals.

"This is my first proper season in professional football and I'm trying to learn as much as I can."

Football runs in Tyrese's family - his father Kevin featured in the Premier League for Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, Everton and West Bromwich Albion.

"If I need any advice, I know that I can always ask him, but he doesn't tend to get too involved, he just supports me," he added. 

"I always felt confident I could make a good start here, I played against Shrewsbury before and thought they were the type of team I wanted to be involved in. I'm happy that I've been given a chance to show what I can do.

"I just want to help the team stay up and hopefully score some goals, that's my short-term goal. I'll go back to Stoke in the summer and see what happens from there."

Congratulations to Tyrese on winning the award.
