Lewis Saunders named FCV Academy Player of the Month
A vital cog in the FCV machine that managed six matches unbeaten in March, and part of the side that visited Sweden, Lewis Saunders’ fine efforts have been recognised with the Player of the Month accolade.
In Sweden, Saunders captained the Academy to two wins from two against Lindsdals IF and Kalmar FF, and he led by example in terms of behaviour away from the pitch while in the Swedish college.
Back in England, and on the pitch, the commanding centre-back has helped Grant Brown’s side to the final of the Central Conference League Cup, in which they face Brooke House College on 8th May.
Brown, a former defender himself has described Saunders’ performances and attitude to improve as “outstanding”, and felt the 17-year-old fully deserved the recognition of this award.
