Barry striker clinches JD Welsh Premier League prize

Barry striker Kayne McLaggon has been voted the JD Welsh Premier League's Player of the Month for September.

The former Southampton and Bristol Rovers forward kicked off the month with both of the Barry goals on 9th September, as the Town defeated Newtown 2-0 at Jenner Park.

The victory was Barry's first since returning to the national top flight - and marked McLaggon's first goals for his hometown team, sans his double in the pre-season win over Newport County .

McLaggon added two more on his birthday (21st September) to see off Carmarthen Town, as watched by viewers live on Sgorio's Facebook channel.

His assist for Callum Sainty's third meanwhile demonstrated other sides of his game, as Barry clinched their second of three September victories.

On 30th September, the striker completed a fruitful month up front by bagging the Town's late winner at Bangor City.

The result was heralded by manager Gavin Chesterfield as his best since taking over the helm in 2007.

A summer signing from Merthyr Town, McLaggon was chosen as Player of the Month by a panel that included WPL officials, Sgorio pundit and manager Mark Jones and ex-Welsh international Owain Tudor-Jones.

Editors of the successful Y Clwb Pêl-droed website and Twitter users were also responsible for 20% of the poll apiece, with McLaggon topping a shortlist containing Connah's Quay Nomads goalkeeper John Danby and TNS duo Chris Seargeant and Blaine Hudson.
