Kylie Murphy has won the SSE Airtricity Women's National League Player of the Month Award for June / July 2021.

The Wexford Youths captain has kept her team in the title race - just behind Peamount United and Shelbourne - with a return of four goals in six games over the last two months, all of which they won.

Summer time has been kind to Murphy with the dynamic midfielder picking up Player of the Month awards in July 2018 and June 2017. But she is not one to hog the spotlight - even when she fully deserves it.

Even in explaining her recent form, which has coincided with playing in a more advanced position, Murphy insists it doesn't really matter who scores the goals for her team.

"I'm really enjoying being in the box a lot more, I'd like to be scoring a lot more goals...I've had some chances and unfortunately not put them away, but it's really exciting to be playing that bit higher up," said Murphy.

"I feel like every player should have that responsibility to get the team over the line. It doesn't matter who is scoring. Am I happy that I'm scoring? Absolutely. But once they're going in it makes no odds to me and once the goals are going in and we're putting points on the board."

Murphy was selected ahead of her team-mate Ciara Rossiter and Shelbourne midfielder Ciara Grant in the top three from the voting process.
