Aged just 17, Holsgrove is the youngest nominees after excelling for Reading in PL2 Division 1.

Although Reading lost to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, Holsgrove stood out from attacking midfield and the Royals have high hopes for their Scotland youth international who signed professional terms last month.
