SHANKS NAMED IN LFE'S 'THE 11'

9 June 2020

Rising star Connor Shanks has been named in the League Football Education's 'The 11' for June 2020. 

The second-year scholar has earned his place in the side for efforts on and off the pitch - over the course of the 2019/20 season.

Though still to make his competitive first-team debut, Shanks did feature in City's pre-season friendlies against Liverpool and Bradford (Park Avenue) last July. 

'The 11' acknowledges both the football and academic progress of under-18 scholars at EFL clubs while also assessing other factors including involvement in community or charity-based initiatives.

During the 2019/20 season, 33 apprentices have been selected for the award, which celebrates the holistic development of young players.

Notable academy graduates to have earned places in the side in the past include Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Oliver McBurnie, Lewis Cook, Ademola Lookman and Ryan Sessegnon.

'The 11' - June 2020 is as follows:

Connor Shanks (Bradford City)

Carl Johnston (Fleetwood Town)

Alex Henderson (Ipswich Town)

Stuart McKinstry (Leeds United)

Wynford Marfo (Leyton Orient)

Ziyad Al-Oyouni (Lincoln City)

Ollie Leach (Milton Keynes Dons)
