Adam Armstrong was on the short list of four players for the League One Player of the Month award for August, and he was named the winner, after he scored five goals in his first three games for Coventry City, at the start of his six month loan spell at Coventry City.
Adam Armstrong – winner of Player of the Month for August
This is what Adam said about winning the award:
“It’s a great honor to win the award and totally unexpected.” “I’m always confident I can get goals but I never thought I’d get off to the start I have done at Coventry.”
“Everyone from the manager and his staff, to the players and all the fans, have made me feel so welcome at the club. This award is for all of them really.”
“Hopefully it won’t be the only success we can achieve together this season.”
The Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has this to say:
“We’re all delighted to learn that Adam has won the Player of the Month award and he definitely deserves it.”
“He’s had a fantastic month and we’ve all been really impressed with him since he joined the club in pre-season.”
“Adam shows a fantastic humility on the training ground, which means he is always listening to what you’re saying and always looking to improve.”
“With his natural enthusiasm for the game and his ability to learn, I’m sure we’ll see more from him as the season goes on.”
Those are good words from Tony Mowbray.
Here’s what Adam tweeted after being given the award – he’s currently with the England U19 squad:

Armstrong started the season off with two goals against Wigan, and then followed that up with another two against Millwall, and then one against Crewe Alexandra.
This is a good way to grab Steve McClaren’s attention, and if the teenager continues to do well at Coventry, it’s a good question as to whether he will be brought back to Newcastle in January, or allowed to stay out on loan for the season.
Certainly he’s made a great start to Coventry loan spell – there’s no doubting that.
