Conor Gallagher earns first W88 Player of the Month vote with huge total


Conor Gallagher scooped his first W88 Crystal Palace Player of the Month award in emphatic style, collecting the August trophy with 89.2% of fans’ votes.

The recent signing got off to a dream start in south London, helping to secure a 3-1 friendly win over Watford, making his competitive debut against Brentford and helping Palace keep a clean sheet, and then netting a sensational brace against West Ham United.

His performance against the Bees saw him named Man of the Match and the midfielder repeated this achievement after securing a point against West Ham.

His success in August is all that counts to win the fans’ accolade, so we won’t mention being part of an England Under-21 win nor earning an assist against Tottenham Hotspur. A bright start for the September vote…

Speaking with Palace TV after receiving the award, Gallagher said: “I’m buzzing. It’s been a great first few games for Palace. Getting a couple of goals the other week was a great confidence boost for me.

“It’s only the start and we’re only a few games in so I can’t say too much. I just want to continue to show what I can do and help the team as much as possible. I’m going to try my hardest to do that.

“All the boys have been fantastic that played. A number of boys could have won it, to be honest.”
