The voting for the Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month award for April 2021 is open! To vote, click here.
The nominees for this month’s award are:
Brogan Hay – Rangers
Brogan has been a key part of Rangers’ attack over April with two goals and three assists this month. The winger netted a double as Rangers rounded off the month with an 11-0 victory over Forfar Farmington.
Head coach Malky Thomson said: “Brogan is adding different dimensions to her game all of the time. Maybe a year ago she would’ve been an old-fashioned style winger but she is now changing and adapting her game.
“She can come in and play in the 10 area, she is handling the ball a lot better and she is growing in confidence so those bits will just add more problems to oppositions.”
Lauren Perry – Forfar Farmington
Lauren has been instrumental for Forfar Farmington since the return to SWPL 1 action with some match-winning saves alongside that famous goal away to Hearts recently which is history for women’s football in this country.
Although Forfar Farmington have been on the wrong end of scorelines in recent weeks, Lauren has performed heroics with some big saves and earned plaudits from her own teammates alongside media and opposition players.
Forfar have had to rebuild in recent weeks but Lauren has been a consistent figure and has shown why she is a massive asset to Forfar Farmington with the goal against Hearts earning a point in the final minute.
Ode Fulutudilu – Glasgow City
Ode Fulutudilu is deserved of the Scottish Building Society SWPL April Player of the Month award following a stunning start to her Glasgow City career. The South African international scored hat-tricks in her first two games.
Ode took just 46 minutes to net her first goal in Scottish football when her header beat Perry in the Forfar goal and two strikes, one from each foot, completed a perfect hat-trick on her SWPL debut in Forfar.
It took just 11 minutes to score on her home debut with two more goals against Motherwell making it six goals scored in April.
Rebecca Galbraith – Spartans
Spartans Head Coach, Debbi McCulloch said: “Becky has made a fantastic re-start to the season with her scoring four goals in five games. Her pace, strength and experience makes her a real handful for defenders and is worthy of this nomination after being so clinical in front of goal but also a great team mate.
“We are extremely fortunate to have a player of Becky’s ability at Spartans, and with her confidence growing game by game, we believe there is plenty more to come from Becky. Becky has thoroughly deserved to see her performances rewarded with this nomination. Her impact on the team, and in games, throughout the month of April was very important and contributed hugely to our success.”
