SWPL: Celtic’s Amy Gallacher wins May player of month prize | Football News

Celtic forward Amy Gallacher and St Johnstone midfielder Ellie-May Cowie have won the SWPL and SWPL 2 player of the month awards for May.

The prize caps off a great end to the season for Gallacher who scored the winning goal to seal the SWPL title – in the last minute against Hibernian on the final day of the season.

Gallacher, who also won the award in August, scored three goals in May as Celtic drew with Glasgow City, Rangers and beat Hibernian to win their first top-flight title.
