Women’s National League awards take place tonight

The SSE Airtricity Women’s National League Awards take place in Dublin tonight, with Sligo Rovers represented by Manager Steve Feeney and players Emma Doherty and Aoife Brennan.

Feeney is up for Manager of The Year after steering his side to an 8th placed finish in the club’s first season at this level. The Bit O’ Red finished the season on 20 points and picked up key wins over experience sides such as Wexford Youths and Shelbourne along the way.

Striker Emma Doherty is nominated for Young Player of The Year after an impressive season in front of goal, scoring 11 times. Doherty also picked up 11 appearances for Ireland Under 19’s in 2022.

Aoife Brennan is in line for the goal of the season award after being nominated for her brilliant free-kick in April in a 3-1 win over Treaty United at The Showgrounds. Brennan scored twice on the day with two perfect set pieces.
