Josh Knight Named PL2 Player Of The Month

After Josh Knight won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for December, LCFC TV looks back on some of his best moments.

The Fleckney-based defender has been with the Club since the age of eight after playing locally in the Harborough district in the south of Leicestershire.

He also emerged from the bench during the First Team's 4-1 Carabao Cup victory in the 2017/18 season at Sheffield United.

It's not just me, it's down to the team, and we're really happy with how the season is going. It was great to get a goal at Brighton, but also keeping a clean sheet is what it's about.

"It's not just me, it's down to the team, and we're really happy with how the season is going. It was great to get a goal at Brighton, but also keeping a clean sheet is what it's about.

"It's always nice to try new things with your game and the coaches have been encouraging me to get forward a little bit more which has been a great experience as well."
