Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month: April 2019

The voting for the Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month award for March is open! To vote, click here.

The nominees for this month’s award are:

Jade Gallon – Rangers

Rangers WFC Head Coach, Amy McDonald, said: “When you play you are looking for someone that fights, battles and plays with passion to be on your team.

“Jade in the last games has had this in abundance. Scoring at one end but doing the hard work at the other end by breaking up play and putting her body on the line.

“She works hard on and off the pitch doing additional sessions which shows in her performance. She was instrumental in the Motherwell game and scored the only goal at Spartans. She deserves this nomination for these performances.”

Lucy McEwan – Glasgow Girls

Glasgow Girls Head Coach, John Doyle, said: “Since I’ve came to Glasgow Girls, Lucy was a girl that showed promise and has potential to go far in the woman’s game. Her attitude has been spot on and is keen to improve her game.

“When I first saw Lucy in pre-season, her movement in the final third was something Jamie and I noticed straight away. Lucy has worked extremely hard and has taken on board some small pieces of advice and has added elements to her game and is now seeing the results of her work, which we are all delighted with.

“Over the past month or so, Lucy has grown in confidence and has now found the next six times in the last three games with her most recent goal in April coming versus Partick Thistle, which turned out to be the winner.

“Lucy has been a major contributor to our recent results and I am delighted for her that she has been nominated for this month’s award.”

Michaela McAlonie – Spartans

Spartans WFC Head Coach, Debbi McCulloch, said: ““Michaela has shown her versatility as a player over the last month by playing in several different positions for the club where she has had to adapt her game to benefit the team.

“Her free-kick against Forfar last month showed her quality from set pieces and the ability she has to score important goals for Spartans.

“Michaela continues to grow as a player and leads by example with her effort on and off the pitch.”

Nicola Davidson – Forfar Farmington

Forfar Farmington FC Head Coach, Stevie Baxter, said: “Nicola Davidson can be described in one word. Leader.

“On the pitch and off the pitch, Nicola trains, plays and supports her team mates and everyone around her to be better every day.

“This season has seen a huge amount of change at the club and for someone like Nicola who has been at Farmington from a young age, this year’s change could have been one too many. However a true leader does not waiver and her commitment, desire, drive, and the will to win and play the game the right way, whilst leading her team has been exceptional.

“This season has not been easy with niggling injuries and a couple of weeks out with a troublesome back, however as captain and leader Nicola was in the dugout supporting her team as if she was on the pitch.

“A very worthy nominee for this month, respected by team mates and fellow players across the league.”
