Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month: May 2018

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

The nominees for this month’s award are:

Colette Cavanagh

Celtic Manager, David Haley: “Colette has been in terrific form since the start of the season and indeed is the only player to have started all games so far this season.

I am delighted for her to be nominated and it shows how well she has done given she has been learning a new position which she seems to be fitting in well to now.

She is still a young player and worked incredibly hard so I hope she is successful in achieving this award.”

Celtic won three out of four games in May, their only loss coming to Glasgow City. Cavanagh scored twice in the month, including the winner in their 2-1 win over Forfar with an impressive individual goal.

Rebecca McGowan – St Johnstone

St Johnstone WFC Head Coach, Jason McCrindle: “I’m absolutely over the moon for Bexi being nominated.

I have the pleasure of watching her train and play every week, but this last four to six weeks I’ve seen Bexi grow with confidence and start to play the way we know she can. We have asked her to enjoy what she is doing and it’s no coincidence that she’s been rewarded with this nomination.

She is still developing her game but this will show her work is not going unnoticed. Her team mates have been key and there’s a real togetherness in the group. This is a great recognition of that as well as her performances.

St Johnstone were unbeaten in the month of May, drawing three and winning one of their four games. McGowan scored once, opening the scoring in their 3-3 draw with EUHV.

Chloe Logan – Stirling University

Stirling University WFC: “We are delighted that Chloe has been nominated for the player of the month award as her performances in goals, not only this season, but in past seasons have been outstanding.

She consistently pulls off unbelievable saves giving the team 100% confidence in her ability to keep the team in matches.

Chloe captains the team and is an excellent role model for hard work and what it means to be a too class goalkeeper and player.”

Stirling won one of their five games in May but never conceded more than three goals, including against second placed Hibernian. Logan was also voted Player of the Match for her team by the opposition coaches in four of the five matches.

Brogan Hay – Rangers

Rangers Head Coach, Amy McDonald: “I’m delighted form Brogan to have received this nomination. May has been a tough month for the team but we’ve continued to battle during our toughest run of games.

Amongst those performances, Brogan has continued to provide a spark for us and is always a danger to any team she faces. Every time she gets of the ball, there’s an excitement about what will happen next. She looks to make things happen.

Brogan is still young and developing into a fantastic player. I’m sure this won’t be the last nomination that she receives.”

Rangers lost all five of their games in May but three of those games came against the top two teams. Hay scored once in the month but was nominated a total of six times by a combination of her own and opposition Head Coaches.
