McAtee named PL2 Player of the Season

James McAtee has been named the PL2 Player of the Season 2021/22.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has been in scintillating form all season and ended the campaign as the division’s joint-top scorer.

McAtee raced out of the blocks back in August with successive hat-tricks against Blackburn Rovers and then Manchester United a week later.

City went on to win the PL2 title by six points.

McAtee’s form led to first team recognition for the Salford-born teenager who made six appearances during the campaign just ended.

He also won five England Under-20 caps during a stellar season, scoring twice.

Everybody at Manchester City congratulates James on this fantastic achievement.
