Anthony Scully has been nominated for Premier League 2 Player of the Month for September, as reported on West Ham’s official website.
The 20-year-old striker is following in the footsteps of teammate Dan Kemp, who was nominated for the August edition of the award.
This nomination comes after he scored an impressive six goals in September, while also recording two assists in three victories.
To add another layer of gloss to his month’s work, Scully scored twice in the against Newport County in the EFL Trophy, using his alertness and clinical finishing to get the opener, before bundling the ball over the line in the dying moments to secure the 5-4 win, despite the team having gone 4-1 down, as shown in the highlights video on the EFL YouTube channel.
His goals have been an integral part of the young Hammers’ success so far this campaign, as they sit top of the table, yet he seems to have gone under the radar.
Nathan Holland and Conor Coventry have both deservedly had first-team opportunities in the Carabao Cup this campaign, but there hasn’t really been much talk of the Irishman getting a similar chance.
The likelihood is that Scully will need to be very patient if he is to get a chance at West Ham, with Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti at the club, as well as Xande Silva when he is fully fit, however, he is someone who should be paid some attention.
