Congratulations to Ashley Young who has won the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month for April.

Young is the second Villa player this season to pick up the award as Gabby Agbonlahor last November.

Ashley Young told AVTV Online: ‘I’m extremely happy to win this award. I had a good month and this rounds it off perfectly. The amount of goals we scored throughout the month was terrific. The boys were brilliant and those wins and goals got us back in the race for fifth place.’

‘We had some great results but the stand out has got to be the win against Birmingham. It was a great day for the players and the fans and the way we went about our job was exceptional. In a way this award is for the whole team. Without the other boys on the pitch this wouldn’t have happened. We’ve worked hard together throughout the season.’

And says he has been happy with his form this season adding, ‘Sunday’s quite a big one and hopefully all the hard work we’ve put in throughout the season will pay off come the end of the game.’
