Sess Makes BBC Young Sports Personality Of The Year List

Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon has been nominated for the BBC’s Young Sports Personality of the Year, featuring on a shortlist of ten athletes, with the prize being announced at the Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday 21 October.

Last year’s crown went to Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden, while other previous winners include Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray, Tom Daley and Ellie Simmonds.

Sessegnon has been used to claiming individual recognition of late having scooped LFE Championship Apprentice of the Year, EA Sports Young Player of the Season and Sky Bet Championship Player of the Season at the EFL Awards in April.

“I think it’s a great achievement for myself,” the 18-year-old told the club website. “Its been a good year for me and I just want to continue to grow as a footballer and inspire the next generation.

“For me, being so young it’s always good to be up for awards like this, especially when I am up against such strong candidates in their fields.

“All the other nominees have excelled in their fields so for me it’s such a great achievement to be named alongside them.”

The talented teenager, who has also starred on the international scene by winning the UEFA European Under-19 Championships with England last summer, will compete against nine young stars from various sports.
