JAMES Murphy has become one of the youngest winners of the Welsh Premier player of the month award, three days after celebrating his 19th-birthday.

Awarded an 18-month contract extension by the Wingmakers last week, Murphy featured in all of the clubs' games in January.

He scored a crucial header as Airbus hit back to beat local rivals Gap Connah's Quay on New Year's Day and was credited with an assist in the 2-2 draw at Port Talbot.

Murphy then featured again in Saturday's live TV 1-1 draw at Llandudno.

When announcing the contract extension for Murphy last week, director of football Andy Preece said: "Spud (Murphy) has been involved in 22 games this season, 11 starts and four goals with a number of assists and he is more than likely to be the next one to progress to a higher level. 

"How we got him from Connah's Quay I will never know but the reputation of our academy and the opportunities we give in the first team obviously played a part."
