The voting for the Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month award for April is now open! To vote, click here.
The nominees for this month’s award are:
Jade Gallon – Rangers
Jade is passionate, hard-working and focused. She joined Rangers at the start of the season and not only has displayed professionalism but has shown great passion. Jade has provided for the team in both attacking by scoring goals but has defensively worked hard and made some important interceptions and challenges. She is exactly the same in training and never lets her standards drop.
Like many players Jade balances, a full-time job of being a police officer with her commitment to training. She always gives 100% and is deserving to be nominated of player of the month with big performances in the two 4-0 victories this month.
Suzanne Mulvey – Motherwell
Three games and four more goals for Suzanne are the stats that most will reference when summarising the strikers contribution in April. Those goals have contribute to three wins for her team and preserved her position as the top scorer in the division.
Those who have seen a Motherwell game up close might notice other qualities. Having been promoted to captain the side, Suzanne has excelled as the team’s leader. Whether it is leading by example with her tireless work rate, demanding more from those around her, or quietly passing on advice to her younger teammates, Suzanne makes those around her better players. Her contribution goes far beyond that very impressive goals total.
Lauren Evans – Glasgow Girls
Lauren Evans has been in fantastic form and has scored vital goals this month.
Over the last few seasons, her game has went from strength to strength. She is faster, fitter, and tactically more aware. So much so, the club put Lauren on a professional deal and see her as a big part of their future.
It is no shock to anyone at the club that Lauren is seen as one of the best players in this league and this month has seen all her hard work paying off with goals added into her game. With three goals in two games, including two goals in a vital win over Central Girls, the club are now off the foot of the table.
Pamela Liddell – Hearts
It has been a fantastic month for Hearts and Liddell, winning two out of three games and only a narrow 1-0 loss to FC Kilmarnock last Sunday. Those results have seen Hearts climb up the table and only five points off top spot.
For Liddell, she has been a key component in helping Hearts pick up points. She scored twice in their 4-3 win over Central Girls FA and grabbed another brace a week later against Aberdeen, one of which was included in BBC Sport Scotland’s goals of the week.
Four goals in the month have merited Liddell’s inclusion and made her the third highest goal scorer in the division.
