Ireland's Will Smallbone Named Southampton Young Player Of The Season

Will Smallbone has been named Southampton's Young Player of the Season.

The Ireland U19 international made a breakthrough into the Premier League club's first team this season, playing 10 games.

The 20-year-old scored in his senior debut against Huddersfield in the FA Cup in January and made his league debut against Aston Villa in February.

The English-born player signed a new four-year deal at St Mary's earlier this summer.

"The good thing is that he can play number 10 and number six, at number six he feels a bit more comfortable maybe, but on a No.10 he also can get in the box and create something," Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said regarding Smallbone last month.
