Coventry City's Jordan Ponticelli missed out on an award at the EFL Awards tonight.
The striker, who has scored three goals in two games for City andf 15 goals for City U23's, was nominated for the The LFE Apprentice of the Year in League Two but the award went to Stevenage's Ben Wilmot.
Speaking about his development to the Coventry Telegraph's Andy Turner, Ponticelli said: It’s always a question of being patient when you’re a young lad in football, especially at my age, only being 19.
“I have got a lot of development years left and a game like this today just helps me learn how to manage games, how to get back into games and how to see out wins.
“It was a different role for me and a great experience as I keep learning the game, and I think I did well in that position. It’s very new to me. The gaffer and Adi (Viveash) have been great with me and they’ve given me the chance to show what I’ve got.”
The divisional Team of the Seasons were announced recently, as chosen by the EFL club managers and they were condensed into one select XI with former City player James Maddison included..
Former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson was named in a Football League Club Developed X1 and received a Special Recognition Award.
