Worth looking to do the shirt proud

George Worth admits being crowned this month's Lumbers Player of the Month is a tough pill to swallow given recent results for the squad but says, personally, it's a "silver lining" for the Tigers youngster after a consistent run of appearances for the senior side.

Worth beat out Will Spencer and Joe Ford for the fan-voted award which was announced at half time on the pitch at Welford Road during last weekend's European fixture.

"I'm giving it my all and just trying to do the shirt proud."

Speaking at full time, the 22 year old says his focus has been on contributing to the squad and doing the Tigers shirt proud when given the chance.

"We're in a pretty tough place as a team and struggling to get the results that we want, going our way, but this award is a tiny silver lining for me personally," he said.

"I'm giving it my all and just trying to do the shirt proud."

Worth, who made his senior debut in May 2016 and has since made 27 appearances for Leicester, was also quick to praise Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy.

"It's awesome to be able to work with him for as long as I have," he said.

"I wouldn't be half the player I am without Geordie, so it's a massive tip of the hat to him."

The Lumbers Player of the Month is sponsored by club partner Lumbers Jewellers and voted for by fans from a three-man shortlist, nominated by the Tigers coaching staff on a monthly basis.
