Nathan Redmond Wins England U21 Player Of The Year Award
Monday, 30th Jan 2017 10:12

Nathan Redmond has come in for some criticism from Saints supporters, but at International level he has been acclaimed as the best player of the season. But he had competition from a Saints team mate.

The vote conducted amongst the members of the England Supporters club saw Redmond poll 32% of the vote to knock fellow Saint James Ward Prowse (25%) into second with third place going to Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek (12 %).

This is a good award to win and will perhaps go a little way to convincing some of our supporters that Redmond is a talent, but he like some of his Saints team mates are struggling with the system at present.

Saints also had an interest in the vote for the full squad's player of the year, it was won by former St Mary's favourite Adam Lallana, whilst this will not please some, it does highlight that the Saints youth system has produced some cracking players since it was revamped back in 2000 as shown by the number of our sadly mainly ex players who were at the club pre administration in 2009 who have gone on to International success.

Interesting - Redmond showed in the first half at Liverpool that he can do important things, heavy goalscoring will I fear never be one of them.

What a fantastic award for the lad and I for one congratulate him on his recognition. He's still developing but I predict he'll do well and become a firm fans favourite.

The competition included Ward Prowse, Targett and McCarthy... say no more.

I really can't believe the attitude of some of our fans. We have BOTH of the top two England U21 players in 2016, and some people do nothing but criticise them.

Well done to the lad he's obviously doing something right in training, however, if he is best that England has got to offer in the U21's then were in for a long wait for the international scene for some glory.

he's one for the future, perhaps a loan spell at a lower league club for a season or two to turn him into a more rounded player then he may be ready for the first team,
