Midfielder Ashley Westwood has been named as Crewe Alexandra's player of the season.

The 20-year-old, who has scored six goals in 36 appearances, had played just 22 minutes of first-team football before the start of the campaign.

He told BBC Radio Stoke: "I'm speechless, because when it's voted for by the fans it's a massive boost."

Westwood signed a new a contract in December that ties him to the Alex until 2012.

Crewe assistant manager Steve Davis added: "He's a local lad and he's come from nowhere.

"People didn't really know much about him because he wasn't one of the young rising stars, but over the last 18 months he's kicked on and shown what he can do."

The only prize to elude Crewe-born Westwood on the night was the goal of the season award, which was won by Calvin Zola for his volley in the 3-2 victory at Bradford in October.
