Laba360 | McNeil Is Player Of The Month

Teenage winger wins fans' vote to take prize for March

16 April 2019

Dwight McNeil is the Clarets' Player of the Month for March.

The teenager topped a supporters' poll run by Principle Partner Laba360 to win the prize for the first time.

McNeil enjoyed an outstanding run of games in March as he continued the form that has been a key part of the Clarets' resurgence since the turn of the year.

And the 19-year-old topped off the month with a stunning strike against Wolves - his second goal in as many games - to seal a vital victory in the Clarets' move towards Premier League safety.

"It was nice to score and great to help us to such an important result," said McNeil, who received his award from competition winner Peter Cottam ahead of last Saturday's 2-0 win against Cardiff when he created both goals for Chris Wood.

"It was a month which finished really well to kick-start this hat-trick of wins which has nearly got us over the line.

"I'm really enjoying my football at the moment and I'm grateful to the rest of the lads for helping me along, and also to the supporters who voted for me to win the award, which means a lot.

"It's been a tremendous second half of the season and hopefully we can keep going to finish strongly."

Keep your eyes on for when the vote for April's award will open.
