Manchester City EDS striker Nabil Touaizi is amongst the nominees for August's Premier League 2 Player of the Month.

The 17-year-old Spanish striker has made a hugely impressive start to the season, scoring back-to-back hat-tricks as City's EDS squad opened up with a 6-5 win over reigning champions Arsenal and a 6-4 victory against West Ham.

Touaizi was also on the scoresheet in the Club’s Checkatrade Trophy clash away at Shrewsbury Town last week.

Altogether nine players are on the list, which was decided by the League's Football Development Panel after PL2 club managers nominated the best performance by an opposing player in each of their August fixtures.
