Costello Wins Championship Young Player of the Year

It was a special night at the Betfred Championship and League 1 awards last night as Saints youngster Matty Costello was named as Betfred Championship Young Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old has played the majority of the season on dual registration for Sheffield as well as making his first team debut for Saints.

After the event he simply summed up his feelings by saying he was “buzzing” at the award.

“I can’t really sum this up in words how I’m feeling right now but just want to say a massive thanks to staff, lads and fans at Sheffield,” he said. “I now just want to kick on and finish this season on a high with Saints.”

Costello is a product of Saints Academy system and signed a new two-year contract last week.

He’s played six times for the Saints this season – one of those alongside a plethora of Academy products that lifted the League Leaders’ Shield against Hull two weeks ago.

In that match James Bentley made his debut – and he won this award in 2017.
