Vokes Named Championship Player of the Month
Burnley Football Club have this morning confirmed that Welsh International forward Sam Vokes has been named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for March.
Vokes scored four goals in four games for the Clarets including a fantasic header against Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Clarets won three and drew one. After helping his side continue an excellent run of 17 games without defeat, Vokes was pleased to accept the award.
He said: “It’s always nice to be recognised and we’ve had a good month as a team and personally and we’re looking for another good month. It was March last time I won it so it would be nice to follow it up with the same outcome of promotion.
It’s a nice award to get but as a collective we’ve been great over the past month to six weeks. It reflects where we are as a team.”
