Fuad Sule named Player of the Month

SSE Airtricity/SWAI Player of the Month Award for July 2017

Congratulations to Fuad Sule who has been named the SSE Airtricity/Soccer Writers’ Association of Ireland Player of the Month for July.

It’s a massive honour for Fudzer who becomes the first #Bohs player to win the award since Paddy Madden in 2010.

Sule fended off competition from former Cork City striker Seán Maguire, who finished second in the voting. Conan Byrne of St Patrick’s Athletic was third.

The 20-year-old, who last week signed a new contract with the club until the end of next season, hasn’t looked back since breaking into the first team in April.

But his performances in the memorable victories against Shamrock Rovers and Cork City last month stood out in particular.

He said: “They were two unbelievable games. Beating Rovers gave us a lot of confidence going into the Cork game and that really helped us.

“It’s pleasing to see hard work getting the recognition.

“I’ve looked back at past winners of this award and it’s usually been goalscorers or more attacking players. It’s good to see the other side of the game recognised too.”

But Fudzer is already looking ahead to the next challenge – tomorrow’s trip to face Finn Harps in the Irish Daily Mail Cup.

He added: “We’ve been training towards a good cup run but it is going to be tough, we know that.

“Everyone will leave it all out on the pitch up there.”
