Congratulations go to Ashley Palmer of Scunthorpe United as September 2009 Apprentice of the Month.
Ashley is a regular in the Youth and Reserve teams and has featured in every game this season at both levels and his outstanding contributions for the reserves against Leeds United, Sunderland and Middlesbrough will not have gone unnoticed by Iron boss Nigel Adkins.
As a first year Apprentice, Ashley has settled into the Club well, despite having to acclimatise himself to the new experience of living away from home in digs provided by the Football Club.
As well as excelling at football, the young defender has displayed a great all round attitude and manner, demonstrating commitment to College and the educational elements since starting his Apprenticeship this summer.
