I`m chuffed with this!
Ashley Westwood has reacted to the news earlier that he won the Vital Villa player of the month for November. See: Vital Villa's November Player Of The Month Winner
Ashley Westwood said: "I`m really delighted and very grateful to the fans on Vital Villa, especially with me being a young lad whom probably no one had heard of, coming from League One and little Crewe! The gaffer has shown faith in me by putting me in the team but you know that with the likes of Delphy and Karim ready to come on, if you have an off game, you might not get in the team for a while."
"So we`re all pushing one another and that`s great for the team and a great reflection on the squad. We`re on a little run now and we want to keep that going. Overall we`re in a rebuilding phase for the Club and the fans have been playing their part fantastically well. When you`re at places like QPR and Sunderland and the fans show that level of appreciation towards you and support for you even at the end of the game, it`s an incredible feeling. As players, we appreciate that so much."
Adding, "We need the fans and the Villa fans have been brilliant all season. Me, I`m just a tidy player, I`m happy to be involved and contributing and I really appreciate this recognition from the fans, it`s great. Thanks very much."
He has also won a couple of man of the match awards recently,
Sunderland away: 34%
Arsenal home: 38%
And was second to Benteke v Reading on 31% + second to Guzan v QPR away with 13%
