Irish Pair Coleman & Idah Nominated For PL & PL 2 Monthly Awards

Irish pair Seamus Coleman and Adam Idah have both been nominated for monthly Premier League awards following their exploits in March.

Idah has been nominated for his performances in the Premier League 2 for Norwich, while Everton’s Seamus Coleman is in contention for the Premier League version of the award.

Coleman, who has spent much of the season in and out of the Everton starting XI, played three matches for the Toffees in March winning two and drawing one.

He also had a hand in Everton managing to keep impressive clean sheets against both Liverpool and Chelsea as well as the 2-0 win over West Ham.

The 30-year old was arguably his side’s best player in the victory against the Hammers and also provided an assist for Bernard’s goal.

Coleman faces very tough competition for the award with Liverpool pair Sadio Mané and Andrew Robertson, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse all also nominated.

Idah, who recently starred in the Irish U21’s victory over Luxembourg, has been nominated for the Premier League 2 version of the award after he scored three goals as Norwich City claimed four points in two Division 2 matches.

The 18-year-old converted a penalty in a comeback win at Manchester United before scoring both goals in a 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

The Norwich striker will be looking to follow in fellow Irish underage international Aaron Connolly who won the same award for November following his goalscoring exploits with Brighton.
