Ellen Molloy of Wexford Youths has been included in the three-player shortlist for the SSE Airtricity Women’s National League Senior Player of the Year award.
The Kilkenny native was the recipient of the Young Player of the Season award in 2020 with county compatriot Karen Duggan claiming the senior award in the same year.
This time out, until a season-ending knee injury brought a halt to the end of Molloy’s 2022 campaign, the former Thomastown starlet is joined by Athlone Town’s Emily Corbet and Irish international teammate Áine Ó’Gorman.
For this year’s Young Player of the Year, Athlone Town’s Muireann Devaney, Shelbourne’s Jessie Stapleton and Sligo Rovers’s Emma Doherty are all in contention following fine seasons.
The Manager of the Year Award sees last year’s winner Noel King nominated after guiding Shelbourne to back-to-back League titles, alongside Athlone Town’s Tommy Hewitt and Sligo Rovers’s Steve Feeney.
Two awards have already been confirmed with Peamount United captain Áine O’Gorman claiming the EVOKE.ie Golden Boot after finishing up with 22 goals, while Shelbourne goalkeeper Amanda Budden retained the Bank of Ireland Golden Gloves following 14 clean sheets.
The Buy4Pets Goal of the Season Award will be selected via an online vote in advance of the Awards Ceremony.
On the night of the Awards, the best XI that makes up the Team of the Season will be announced along with the EA SPORTS WNL Under-19 and Under-17 Players of the Year.
The Awards Ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 24th in the Gibson Hotel, Dublin.
