Spartans FC Women’s Michaela McAlonie has been voted as the winner of the Scottish Building Society SWPL Player of the Month for April 2019. The versatile player wins the award for the first time after being nominated last season in August and is the first Spartans player ever to win the award.
McAlonie helped her side concede just three goals in three games from defence and opened the scoring with an excellent free-kick in their 2-0 away win against Forfar Farmington. While they lost their other two games, this was a 2-1 defeat to SWPL Cup champions, Hibernian, and a narrow 1-0 loss at home to Rangers.
Speaking from Spartans Academy, McAlonie said: I’m over the moon to recieve this honour. I was nominated last season and while it was great to be nominated, you always want to win this award.”
