Michael Flynn praised “exceptional” Jake Young as he won his second League Two Player of the Month award of the season.

Young was named League Two Player of the Month for November after scoring six goals in his five games during the month to earn the prize for the second time this season, having already been named the Player of the Month for August.

Flynn praised the striker for the hot streak that he has been on but was sure to enforce that it would not have been possible without the work of the whole team.

He said: “I think that it is a fantastic personal achievement, to win it twice before Christmas or even twice in one season, I think is exceptional.

“But it couldn’t have been done without his teammates and the support he has been given here. He is enjoying his football and his time here.

“For me, he has been a joy to work with, you can see that he wants to improve and I am glad that he is taking on the information that we have been giving him.

“He deserves a lot of credit for putting that ball in the back of the net, because it is the hardest thing to do in the game.”

Young thanked all those around him at Swindon who helped him to produce the devastating form in front of goal that won him the award for the second time.

Speaking to club media, he said: "I’m delighted to win this award for the second month this season and I’m thankful to the team and staff at Swindon for the efforts that have allowed me to have a good personal month, and such a successful personal spell with the club so far.

"It’s been an exciting last month for the club we are all looking forward to taking our recent good form into the Christmas period."

Young was not the only Town player receiving plaudits for their performances in November as Dan Kemp has been nominated for PFA League Two Fan’s Player of the Month, the winner of which is yet to be announced.

Additionally, Saidou Khan’s second-half thunderbolt against Accrington Stanley has been nominated for the League Two Goal of the Month.

That award is a fan vote and sees Khan going up against Odin Bailey’s rocket for Stockport County against Swindon, as well as strikes from Arthur Read and David McGoldrick.
