Jonah is young player of the season

THE New Saints' wingman Craig Jones is the Welsh Premier League's young player of the season.

The 23-year-old beat-off nominations for Port Talbot duo Scott Barrow and Martin Rose to lift the award at the league's annual dinner in Llandudno on Saturday night.
The Wales Under-23 semi-pro cap joined the Saints last summer from Rhyl and scored eight goals to help the club lift the league title last season.
Craig, whose father Brynley played for Oswestry Town as well as Bangor City after a Football League career with Chester City and Scarborough, joined Airbus UK from Buckley Town in November 2004, moving to Aberystwyth in the summer of 2006.
After a full season with the Black & Greens, he was John Hulse's first signing of the 2007 close season for Rhyl.
But despite being nominated in two other categories, the Saints missed-out on the manager and player of the season accolades.
Liam McCreesh of Port Talbot beat Steve Evans to the player of the season award, while Nev Powell of Bangor City won the manager of the season trophy from ex-TNS boss Andy Cale and Talbot's Mark Jones.
Steve Evans received the Welsh Premier trophy, while Jones was presented with the Loosemores League Cup, and the Saints also received the Fair Play Award for their excellent disciplinary record last season.
