Pawlett wins Young Player of the Month


Recommended Posts

PETER PAWLETT was today named the Clydesdale Bank Premier League Young Player of the Month for November.


The 18 year old has been in fine form for Aberdeen starring in wins over St Johnstone and Rangers, and a draw at Motherwell last month. The attacking midfielder also won his first cap for Scotland Under 19's in a draw with Germany.


Perhaps more significantly he also signed a new four and a half year contract with the Dons tying him to the club until 2014.


More to follow on RedWeb and RedTV.


Well done PP!

Delighted for the lad and well deserved, but got to say somewhat astounded the boy Wilson of the Huns didn't get it merely for being a Rangers player


Was thinking the same.. something seems very wrong.


It must have killed them to give it to a Don.

The 19-year-old was today facing surgery on a knee injury.


Aberdeen FC boss Mark McGhee said: “Peter will undergo a procedure today and will probably be out for about a month.


“That is a blow because Peter offers an option to us in an attacking sense.â€

Pawlett is out for rest of season

agony piles on for dons after cup woe as award-winning youngster undergoes knee surgery


By Michael Gannon


Published: 19/02/2010


Aberdeen attacker Peter Pawlett has been ruled out for the rest of the season. The 19-year-old Hull-born forward, who this season switched allegiance to Scotland under the five-year schooling rule, had knee surgery yesterday.


But the injury is worse than first feared and December’s SPL young player of the month is out for the rest of the campaign as Aberdeen attempt to claw their way into the top six.


It is another blow for Dons manager Mark McGhee in the dark days after the club’s ignominious Scottish Cup demise against Raith Rovers on Tuesday.


Pawlett has not played since the cup tie against Rovers on February 6.


McGhee said: “Peter has had surgery on his patellar tendon and it turns out there was more to it than they first thought. It is now looking like 12 weeks rather than four, which will take him up to the end of the season.


“It is a shame for him and for the club. Hopefully, the surgery has now cleared up some of the problems he was having.


“His focus is now on getting healthy for next season.â€


McGhee is expecting to be able to call on Zander Diamond and Charlie Mulgrew for tomorrow’s SPL trip to Falkirk.


Mulgrew missed the Raith debacle through illness, while Diamond succumbed at half-time to similar symptoms.


The pair trained yesterday as McGhee brought his players in on what was to have been their day off.


The manager is still seething but the lack of depth in his squad will prevent immediate sweeping changes.


He said: “We have a squad of 18 players, including two goalkeepers and two players, Pawlett and Andrew Considine, out for the rest of the season.


“Where are these changes going to come from?
