The nominees for this month’s award are:

Amy Anderson – Hamilton Academical

Hamilton Academical WFC Assistant Head Coach, Bobby Watson, said: “Amy Anderson has again excelled in November for Hamilton and it is no surprise to find her nominated for SWPL 2 Player of the Month again.

“The midfielder scored one and was involved in another two in her dominating performance over St Johnstone and was the pick of the Accies’ on the final day of the season at Kilmarnock.

“The SWPL 2 Player of the Season has had an incredible year also picking up her Clubs Player of the Season and Players Player Award.”

Sarah Ewens – Celtic

Celtic Women, said: “Sarah has thoroughly deserved to see her performances rewarded with this nomination. Her contribution to the club throughout the month of November was very significant.

In 2019 she has added greatly to her game, not least scoring goals. Sarah ended the current campaign with a commendable total of 22 goals in all competitions this season and her return was only bettered by Kirsty Howat. Sarah also contributed greatly by assisting teammates and her link up play improved so well that her assist tally closely mirrors her goal scoring exploits.

“Sarah scored seven goals in November and completed a fantastic season by managing to score against every team in the league this season.

“There is no doubt as the season progressed, Sarah’s confidence increased and with it so did her performances on the pitch.”

Lauren McGregor – FC Kilmarnock

FC Kilmarnock Head Coach, Stewart Hall, said: “Lauren has had a fantastic year for Kilmarnock, not just a great November.

“November saw her play in the final games of season and aided the team in picking up four points in last two games of season. She has saved four penalties throughout season and has made countless important saves too.

“She’s a great character who has given everything she possibly could to the team this season and would be thoroughly deserving of this award and would cap off what has been a fantastic individual season.”

Claire Petersen

Stirling University WFC Head Coach, Craig Beveridge, said: “Claire deserves this award as she has been a huge hit with her teammates since joining us after the summer break.

“She has impressed us with her technical abilities on the ball including a goal which gave us the lead against Hibs. Claire also impressed in our match against Celtic and was unlucky not to score again.

“She has a great work ethic and an infectious personality which rubs off on her teammates.”
