Fulham attacker Jay Stansfield, on loan at Exeter City, has been named the English Football League's young player of the month for October. The 19-year-old scored four goals and provided another two assists in seven games to claim the award.

Former Academy graduate Stansfield re-joined the Grecians on a season-long loan from Fulham. He scored his first goals for the club in the month to win the award which covers players that play in all three divisions of the Sky Bet Football League.

He is the first Exeter player to win the award since Ollie Watkins in March 2016. He is the second from Devon in as many months after Plymouth Argyle's Norwich City loanee Bali Mumba won the award for September.

"I'm really happy,” Stansfield said. “I've been working hard over the last couple of months to get a rhythm and flow of how League One is played, so thanks to all the staff and all the players for helping me settle into an environment that I'm not used to.

"It's the first trophy I've had in my career so far, I'll find a safe place for it in the house and hopefully I can get many more. It's not just my award as I wouldn't have been able to do it without the team and everyone has contributed.

"I've been working on another side of my game with the assists so I'm not all about goalscoring and I like helping the team out so I need to keep working hard and getting goals and assists. I'm loving it here, getting the amount of game time I need on a regular basis. I'm really enjoying my time here."

The son of former Exeter striker Adam Stansfield - who died of cancer while he was a player at the Grecians in 2010 - he joined Fulham from Exeter for an undisclosed fee in the summer of 2019. He made his debut the following January and has gone on to play five league games for the London side, including three appearances in the Premier League in August this year.
