Rachel McLauchlan of Rangers has been voted as the winner of the SWPL 1 Player of the Month for October 2021 while Cara Henderson of Glasgow Women is the winner of the SWPL 2 award.

Both players received the highest number of public votes as well as securing the most votes from the Head Coaches within both divisions.

In the month of October, Rangers won three out of four games in the league including a 1-0 away victory over title chasers Hibernian. They also came away with a 1-1 draw against reigning champions Glasgow City, a result which kept them undefeated and top of the table.

In her role as full-back, McLauchlan played a vital part of Rangers’ attacking threat. She provided four assists in October and created a total nine chances in their four games. This included a dominant performance against Aberdeen where she provided three assists, 12 crosses, and three shots on target.

Speaking from the Rangers Training Centre, McLauchlan said: “I’m delighted to win this. Winning individual awards is always nice but the key thing for me in October was the results as a team. We had some really important games and we’ve come away winning three out of four and undefeated.

“I feel like I’m contributing to the team really well at the moment. We’ve only conceded three goals in the league and I’ve got seven assists already. We’re in a really great place as a team so want to keep that momentum going for the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.”

In SWPL 2 Glasgow Women’s Cara Henderson was voted as Player of the Month as her side won all three of their games in October.

The midfielder played a key role for her side, scoring in their victories over Queen’s Park and Stirling University and also troubling Boroughmuir Thistle in their 3-2 away win.

Speaking from Glasgow Women’s home at Budhill Park, Henderson said: “I’m really pleased to have won this award, especially over such tough competition. I was delighted just to be nominated but this is extra special.

“It’s amazing to be playing a part in the teams’ success. I think a lot of people underestimated us coming into the new season but we’re top of the league for a reason. We want to stay there. If we can maintain our current form, there’s no reason why we can’t.

Nominated for the SWPL 1 award was Leanne Crichton (Motherwell) and Lauren Davidson (Glasgow City) while Lisa Swanson (Kilmarnock) and Rebecca Robertson (Stirling University) were nominated for the SWPL 2 award.
