The Black Cats academy graduate is currently on loan at the Mariners from the Stadium of Light and doing very well.
A number of fans have been commenting on Twitter regarding the news that Sunderland loanee and Grimsby Town midfielder Ethan Robson has won the PFA Fans’ League Two Player of the Month award for September.
The Black Cats academy graduate made five league appearances for Grimsby during September, scoring three goals in the process as he played a key role in the Mariners’ continued good start to the season.
Robson scored the winner in the 1-0 victory over Macclesfield at Blundell Park, before netting a brace to help Michael Jolley’s side condemn Exeter City to their first defeat of the season, on their own turf as well.
As reported by the Grimsby website, the 22-year-old midfielder was the runaway winner in the poll, triumphing with 34 percent of the vote, beating Plymouth’s Danny Mayor, who finished in second place with 18 percent.
Here is what some Sunderland fans and Grimsby fans alike said on social media regarding the news:
