HULL, United Kingdom- Hull City forward, Jarrod Bowen, collected his second award in three days over the weekend when he was presented with the Club’s SportPesa Player of the Month Award for August.

The 20-year old only just received the EFL Young Player of the Month Award for August and was presented with the trophy ahead of the Tigers’ home league game against Sunderland.

The game ended in a 1-1 stalemate with the Tigers relying on a second-half equaliser from substitute David Meyler.

Voted for by the fans, it was little surprise that Bowen bagged the award having scored four goals during the opening four weeks of the season. The most outstanding effort being a goal in Hull’s pre-season fixture against Portuguese club Benfica.

His stats for the month included 420 minutes on the pitch, six attempts on target, three left-footed goals and one headed goal.

Role model

Bowen’s biggest inspiration in football is ex-Manchester United and England winger David Beckham.

“He was a good role model for so many young kids involved in football, not only with what he achieved on the pitch but also how he handled himself off-the-pitch as well.

“With myself being a winger, I wanted to be just like him when I was younger. Obviously, I remember him from his time at Manchester United, but I was quite young back then and my best memories of him are from his spells with Real Madrid, PSG and LA Galaxy.

“And then there’s his achievements for the England national side, with the most memorable being his free-kick and overall performance against Greece that secured England’s place in the 2002 World Cup Finals,” Bowen remarked when speaking of his idol.

Hull’s next league fixture will see them travel to Reading FC on September 23.
