Trundle's form has been so good Premiership outfit Everton are monitoring his situation and the Swansea star continued his excellent form this season through November.
The 29-year-old netted three goals in just three League One games to help Swansea stay top of the League One ladder.
"It was simply impossible to look further than Trundle for this month's award," added Kamara.
Carlisle striker Hawley bagged four goals in three games, including an impressive hat-trick against lowly Torquay back on November 12.
"Karl has been amongst the goals again in November and fully deserves his award," Kamara concluded.
