Leading Crewe such an honour - Murphy

Luke Murphy has described the honour he felt at leading out hometown club Crewe Alexandra at the weekend.

"It was a really good experience to be captain of the club" - Luke Murphy
The 22-year-old was named skipper for the 1-0 victory against Coventry City following the sale of Ashley Westwood to Premier League Aston Villa twenty-four hours earlier.

Teenager Max Clayton scored the only goal midway through the first-half and Murphy said it was a particularly memorable occasion for him.

"It was a really good experience to be captain of the club," Murphy told Crewe's official website. "I am a local lad, so for me to lead my team out at 22 was a real honour It is something I want to do and I enjoyed it. Hopefully I can carry on. I'd love to do it, but the decision is down to the manager."
