Wes Hoolahan has been named the League Two player of the month after a string of fine performances for promotion-chasing Cambridge United.

Aged 38, Hoolahan is three years older than his boss Mark Bonner - who has been named the manager of the month - but his ability to pull the strings has not diminished. 

The Dubliner has been at the heart of the Us rise to the top of the table, scoring two goals and making two more in a fruitful January.

"It's been a great month," said Hoolahan.

"We won so many games and went through January unbeaten, so it really has been a positive month. 

"It's certainly been nice to get the assists and a couple of goals to go with it. I'm delighted to win this award, but I couldn't have done it without any of the other lads. 

"It's going really well, I'm hoping we can continue this journey and pick up plenty more points along the way."

Hoolahan announced his retirement from international football in February 2018. Just one of the 43 Republic of Ireland caps he earned came before he reached his 30s.
