Brereton Takes Apprentice Of The Year 2017

Brereton Takes Apprentice Of The Year 2017

Young Nottingham Forest attacker Ben Brereton's progress and performances this year have seen him named the Championship Apprentice of the Year for 2017.

At Sunday's London based EFL Awards ceremony the 17 year old picked up the gong after beating off competition from Sheffield Wednesday's George Hirst and Bristol City's Lloyd Kelly.

Having starred for the Under 23 side, his first team debut in January against Leeds United has seen him go from strength to strength and he now has 13 appearances to his name with a return of three goals in games against Fulham, Brentford and our last minute winner against Aston Villa.

The Apprentice of the Year gong goes to a player who has not just excelled on the pitch but also off pitch with academic achievement as they work through their scholarships and Brereton was also picked out for his disciplinary record as well as his community work at the club.

Speaking to the Official Site after picking up the award, Brereton said.

'It was a great achievement for me and something that I am very proud of. It was a good night and great to be there. I am keeping my feet on the ground and not getting carried away. I just want to keep working hard, get as many games under my belt and keep playing games for this football club and work for the future.'

He added.

'I would like to thank the club and the staff and players. Jack Lester and Gary Brazil at the academy have helped me through and supported me and they gave me my first-team debut. The new gaffer has got faith in me, he believes in me and I am just working hard to play as many games as I can and get more goals. My family as well have been great as they have travelled a lot of miles to get me to training sessions and games. They have been great to me, especially my mum and dad.'
