Jay Stansfield has been named the EFL Young Player of the Month for October.

Former Academy graduate Jay, who re-joined the Grecians on a season-long loan from Fulham was in fantastic form in October, which saw him net four times and provide two assists in a series of impressive performances. Jay also picked up the club awards for Fans' player and goal of the month.

Speaking about winning the award, Jay said: "I'm really happy. I've been working hard over the last couple of months to get a rhythm and flow of how League One is played, so thanks to all the staff and all the players for helping me settle into an environment that I'm not used to.

"It's the first trophy I've had in my career so far, I'll find a safe place for it in the house and hopefully I can get many more. It's not just my award as I wouldn't have been able to do it without the team and everyone has contributed."


"I've been working on another side of my game with the assists so I'm not all about goalscoring and I like helping the team out so I need to keep working hard and getting goals and assists.

"I'm loving it here, getting the amount of game time I need on a regular basis. I'm really enjoying my time here."

The award covers players that play in all three divisions of the Sky Bet Football League.

The award is voted for shortlisted to four candidates each month and the winner is voted for by David Wetherall (EFL Youth Development Director), alongside Ali Maxwell and George Elek who are part of the Not the Top 20 Podcast / Sky Sports / ITV Highlights show.

This is the first time an Exeter City player has won the award since Ollie Watkins back in March 2016. Previous winners of the award include Dele Alli, Conor Gallagher, Brennan Johnson, James Maddison.
