Oldham Athletic striker Sam Surridge has been named Sky Bet League Two Player Of The Month for September, after an impressive run of form, confirmed by the club website.

The Bouremouth loanee managed to notch five goals in four games in September. Sam Surridge has been showing his class for Latics, making seven appearances in all competitions and netted seven goals and is a serious contender for the best frontman in League Two.


The young striker has proved to be a handful for League Two defence’s so far this season, for example, he ran Grimsby Town’s defence ragged and added two goals to his account against them. Following this, he added another brace to his name as he rescued Latics a point against Colchester United.

Latics manager Frankie Bunn said: “His record speaks for itself, hopefully there’s a lot more to come from him.”

“He has been in a side that has created the chances for him but he has put them away so he will get the credit for that.”

“He is still a young player, he is still developing, he is still growing and as it stands at the minute the future looks bright for him and long may that continue.”

Surridge said: “I’m happy to get the award and to have scored a few goals in September.”

“I want to thank the manager and the other players who have helped me, without them this wouldn’t have happened.”

“Hopefully I can continue to keep scoring as well as helping the team pick up points.”
