The nominees for this month’s award are:

Brogan Hay – Rangers WFC

Brogan Hay has been a key figure in Gregory Vignal’s side as they ended September with two league wins in a row moving back into fourth place in the SWPL.

Hay missed the final game of the month against Forfar through injury, but prior to that had started every game since the start of August for the Gers.

The winger got August underway netting a second-half goal for Rangers in the Old Firm derby before a run of games which included a superb cup strike against Glasgow Girls.

The 20-year-old has proved a challenge for opponents using her pace and skill to drive Rangers forward.

Chelsea McEachran – Motherwell FC

Motherwell FC Head Coach, Donald Jennow, said: “At just 17 years old Chelsea has established her as a crucial part of the team. She is competitive, hardworking, keen to learn, and very talented. Her ability in tight spaces and strength on the ball is a real asset and her team mates trust her to take the ball in any situation.

“Chelsea has added goals to her game this season and has become a consistent threat to opposition defences. She backs herself to take on shots from distance as well as bursting in to the box.

“She will undoubtedly continue to improve as she always wants to assess her own performance and speaks up when she has an opinion on the game. In doing so she shows maturity beyond her years.”

Keira Johnstone – Dundee United WFC

Dundee United WFC Head Coach, Gavin Beith, said: “Kiera has shown a great level of consistency with her performances over the course of the season, especially over the last two months. She has played a vital role within our midfield and team as whole.

“The club captain is a great role model for our younger players and leads by example and sets extremely high standards in everything she does.

“Her enthusiasm, dedication and desire to be the best she can be encapsulates everything Kiera is about.”

Rachel Todd – St Johnstone WFC

St Johnstone WFC Head Coach, Jason McCrindle, said: “Rachel has been playing consistently well all season and we are delighted she is receiving recognition for her performances.

“Three goals and three assists in her last three games shows how important Rachel is for us. Her consistency has seen her game go up a level and we are a much better team with Rachel in it.”
