Hatters striker Lee Angol has been named the Vanarama Conference South player of the month for Boreham Wood.

The 20-year-old who joined Luton in the summer was then immediately sent out on loan for the season.

He has had a superb time at Meadow Lane, scoring twice at the weekend to make it 15 goals so far this campaign for the table-toppers.

Angol told the club’s official website: “This award really does mean a lot as I’m working everyday to improve my game.

“I appreciate that though this is an individual award, so much credit must go to my team mates and manager as they have been fantastic.

“It’s a special thing to know that your performances are being noticed in the most positive way possible.”

The official awards panel commented: “November saw Boreham Wood move to the top of the Vanarama Conference South.

“Their elevation to top spot was achieved through the striking prowess of Lee Angol, who clearly demonstrated top clubs need a top striker and he certainly knew where the back of the net was.”

Speaking about the striker’s potential, Hatters boss John Still likened him to Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle, who he signed while at at Dagenham & Redbridge.
