Bristol City pair Alex Scott and Jamie Knight-Lebel have both been shortlisted for prestigious seasonal awards, which are to take place later this month.

The English Football League have revealed their shortlists for the 2022/23 awards and the Robins are shortlisted in several awards. Scott is up for the Championship’s Young Player of the Year award, which comes as no surprise given he has delivered another brilliant campaign.

Scott, dubbed the ‘Guernsey Grealish’ was dubbed a ‘top, top talent’ by the real deal Jack Grealish, whilst Pep Guardiola described him as an ‘unbelievable player’.

The 19-year-old has one goal and five assists this season, equalling his goal contribution tally of last season. He is currently out injured with a knee ligament injury but is the talk of the second tier with several Premier League clubs said to be keeping tabs on him.

Six time Champions League winners Liverpool are the latest team to be linked and sent scouts to watch him whilst on international duty last month. West Ham and Wolves hold a strong interest, whilst the likes of Brighton, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping tabs with a valuation of £25m on the youngster.

Scott is up for an award that has been won by the likes of one-time world transfer record Gareth Bale, as well as Jude Bellingham, Wilfried Zaha and Dele Alli. Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson won the award last year with Scott snubbed for Djed Spence and Fabio Carvalho.

He is one of two players nominated for an award with Jamie Knight-Lebel up for the Apprentice of the Season in the Championship. At 18-years-old, he has captained the Under-21’s team who are battling at the top of the Professional Development League 2.

He has been undergoing education too and has a Triple Distinction Star in his BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma. Knight-Lebel is up against Blackburn Rovers’ Ash Phillips and Emre Tezgel of Stoke City for the award.

Jerry Tocknell, the Supporters Liason Officer, is up for the Employee of the Season award. He attended his 1,000th consecutive away game against Huddersfield Town last month and helps supporters with their quieries. City are also up for the Green Club of the Year award. They are ranked the Championship’s most enviromentally sustainable club and are up against Reading and Northampton Town.
